STEUBENVILLE - Jefferson County Prosecutor Jane Hanlin and her family had to leave town during the juvenile rape trial because of threats made against both her and her family.
Sunday evening, Hanlin confirmed that threats had been made, and she found them to be credible. Hanlin said there were instances of threats before, but the number of threats of a specific nature grew.
"As the trial date grew closer, we received a number of them that seemed to be more credible than others," Hanlin said.
The rapists should be hanged from the goalposts of their football field during a school assembly. Haul them up slowly and let them go to hell choking and kicking as an object lesson.
Including the prosecutor, whose son is one of the suspects?
The wonder about all of this is that the case went forward at all. Who made sure that this Hanlin gal didn’t just bury these accusations?
I say this because I filed a criminal report about DNC Counsel Bob Bauer committing election fraud and subornation of perjury and the state AG sent it to that great law enforcement body, the SOS’s office.... Law enforcement has the ability to bury cases they don’t want to prosecute. What kept that from happening in this instance? Anybody know?
It has been my experience that assuming a question is "stupid" usually means one does not understand the question.
Case in point: how does one know at what point this girl lost all memory to determine whether it was drug induced or a common blackout?
I don’t know what drug they are saying was used in this case. I had asked if there was a date-rape drug that would cause sudden unconsciousness and was given a link to a wikipedia entry for a particular drug. Expat, do you know if that was the drug that’s been claimed was used in this case?
“We as a society allowed it. And now, just blindly accept” it.
Yep. We make believe we didn’t once know right from wrong.
OK, I did misunderstand what you were asking. I thought you were asking how I knew how fast drugs act. I presume that the reports that she can’t remember anything from after she was picked up was based on her testimony.
Does anybody know if the testimony and evidence are available to the public somewhere?
go ahead and define "common blackout."
Changing attitudes is an uphill battle, isn't it? It really saddens me to think that this whole episode would probably never have happened if that girl had had one person there who actually thought of her best interests instead of their own gratification.
When you have a female rape or murder victim - there will always be a certain group that will demonize the victim.
It doesn’t matter if she is a virginal delicate flower - or the town hoochie....anything to deflect attention away from the depraved actions of rapists.
No - she should not have drank herself into oblivion - nor should she ever have considered any of these lovely teens to be friends she could trust.
Regardless - what a bunch of teens will do when confronted with an unconscious girl? It’s become Lord of the Flies.
She is lucky to be alive.
Sooooo much misinformation......
City police began their investigation after the victim’s parents went to the Steubenville police station on Aug. 14 to report a sexual assault involving their daughter.
As Hanlin coordinated the initial investigation effort with local law enforcement, state investigators were brought in early, records show. BCI was pressed into service on Aug. 16 to help process the crime scene where the rape took place.
On Aug. 27, Hanlin officially requested assistance from the Ohio Attorney General’s office in the prosecution of the two juveniles.
Hanlin had no further involvement with the case, she said.
Walter Madison, Richmond’s attorney, mentioned Hanlin and her son during testimony and during his closing arguments Saturday night.
Charlie Keenan’s (Hanlin’s son) name was mentioned in one report, but the lead investigator testified to excluding him as a suspect or witness saying he accounted for Keenan’s whereabouts during the days in question.
Hanlin said she heard her and her son mentioned indirectly by Madison during the trial.
“I think it was irresponsible for (Madison) bringing it up, especially in closing arguments, when it was clearly explained in testimony that Charlie had absolutely nothing to do with the incident,” Hanlin said.
did you see the pics of her being carried around while she was unconscious?
Did you see the Michael Nodianos video describing her as being unconscious?
“It is an epidemic on college campuses.”
A very odd thing when you consider that, these days (to say nothing of my own day)you have to be some kind of real loser not to be able to “pick up” a willing female.
I don’t know if that is the specific drug some sources have talked about. It’s the drug common referred to as the “date rape” drug.
Alcohol, pot, coke, morphine, heroin, plus all of the dozens and dozens of sleep inducing, anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, muscle relaxant drugs, plus all the stimulants and any drug other you can think of, I suppose could, and probably have been, used during a sexual assault, but when someone asks about the “date rape drug”, I assume they are talking about roofies - the link I posted.
One induced by excessive alcohol consumption.
And you think I'm stupid?
Please be so kind as to provide a link to the testimony implicating rophynol usage. That's a new one on me.
Sheesh. Rape isn’t about sex. It’s about control. And no, the environment isn’t one where there are willing females everywhere. I also don’t recall hearing about many females “willing” to be controlled and forced, against their will.
I assume most of the residents of that disgusting town are registered Democrats.....
What I have a "big problem" with is the legal theory claiming "consent" is a notarized form, signed in triplicate, just prior to coitus.
Consent requires being aware and having full faculty. The girl, CLEARLY, WAS NOT IN THAT STATE.
So by your evasion I take it there is no such link?
