Some kind of twisted love angle going on here – just not sure what though…
A couple of JD’s friends aren’t too happy according to their tweets.
Deric fires back!
Note title change…
The teenage victim of the Steubenville rape wants to work with Brad Pitt on his movie of the now notorious Ohio scandal, MailOnline can reveal.
The girl, who has never spoken publicly about her ordeal at the hands of High School football stars, Ma’lik Richmond and Trent Mays, has asked for ‘input’ into the movie which will chronicle the crime and the role played by Anonymous hacker, Deric Lotstutter in exposing it and the cover up that followed.
Oscar winning Pitt’s production company Plan B is to base the movie on a Rolling Stones profile of Lostutter, ‘Anonymous vs Steubenville,’ by journalist David Kushner.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Lostutter said: ‘Who better to tell her story than her? If her lawyer approves it we’re going to make Jane Doe a consultant to the movie.

Once again rumors of things to come have griped Steubenville. The movie rumor has been confirmed as true!
School kids dread what is to come. Parents dread it too. Many kids are still very stressed over this entire affair and it isn’t ending anytime soon. With a movie – they know there will be renewed media interest for awhile – probably around the time the movie is released, etc..
Jane Doe had to delete her twitter account due to several different things – including this twitter account below naming her outright and her friends. The friends are now being tagged on twitter – unwanted contact.
Once upon a time long ago this entire story was about Jane Doe. Things changed and now the story… and the movie is about Deric Lostutter. It’s his story now.
What the Jane Doe family thinks about all of this is unknown. Their attorney, Robert Fitzsimmons, is said to have commented to the effect that as long as it was accurate – all would be good.
Sometimes things become what could never have been foreseen.
Wow! Talk about using a symbol to speak loudly! I’ve seen Big Red made fun of and spoofed all over the internet… and defended all over the internet too… it goes both ways, but this has to be one of the loudest bashes of Big Red I’ve seen. Some will like it and some will hate it. That’s how things go around here.
Whew, tough talk on this Facebook page too!! Just goes to show when you think the Steubenville story is over and done with … it ain’t!
Michelle McKee of course… droning on and on about how talented she is. Funny thing is that she has caused so much shit to be written about her on the internet she can’t get a job!! Is Michelle talented? Yes, I believe so if tweeting garbage is talent – then yep, she’s the talent show winner, hands down!
This is a mere sample…
Here’s a sample of what has been going on over at the Boycott the YMCA of Steubenville, OH Facebook page. Oy!!
Imagine this! LOL! People got quiet or went about their business and a tight group turned on each other. Sure was some good entertainment there for a while… now of course everyone is busy with the Brad Pitt Steubenville movie prospect. It’s being explored as a movie about Deric Lostutter’s life and times… times in the Steubenville affair and possibly facing 10 big ones in a Federal Prison.
From Huffington Post
Brad Pitt’s production company will allegedly bring the Steubenville rape case to the big screen.
The Tracking Board, a Hollywood insider blog, claims Pitt and Dede Gardner’s Plan B Entertainment has bought the rights to the November 2013 Rolling Stone story“Anonymous vs. Steubenville” written by David Kushner. The piece focuses on hacktivist and Anonymous member Deric Lostutter’s role in revealing information and exposing cover-ups relating to the 2012 rape of a 16-year-old girl by two football players from the close-knit town.
Representatives for CAA and Brillstein Entertainment, which represent Plan B, were not immediately available for further comment.
The ailing teenager at the center of an interstate custody battle is going back under the care of Tufts Medical Center, where she was being treated until another Boston hospital made a different diagnosis and urged child protection officials to take her away from her family.
The development in the case of Justina Pelletier, 15, came at an attorneys-only hearing in Boston, where a contempt of court order against her father was also lifted. Lou Pelletier violated a gag order when he appeared on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” last month to decry Massachusetts Department of Children and Families’ decision to take his daughter, who is from Connecticut and was only in the Bay State to get medical treatment.
Doctors at Tufts performed surgery on Justina and prescribed medication, all to treat her for a rare condition called Mitochondrial diagnosis. But when Pelletier took his daughter to Boston Children’s Hospital to seek treatment for a negative reaction to the flu last year, doctors determined that her problems were partly psychiatric and that the invasive treatment at Tufts constituted medical abuse. They contacted DCF, which took the girl.
Justina spent the past 13 months detained in two Massachusetts’s facilities against her parents’ wishes. She is currently being held at the Wayside Youth and Family Support Network facility in Framingham, Mass., after spending a year at the Boston Children’s Hospital.
Also at Monday’s meeting, lawyers for the Pelletiers sought to have DCF transfer custody of the girl to their counterparts in Connecticut while the family continues to fight for her return. A decision on that issue could come on March 17.
The Pelletiers have allies in the Massachusetts Legislature, where 16 lawmakers drafted a resolution last week in an attempt to strip Justina’s custodial rights from the DCF.
“DCF is an agency in disarray,” said state Rep. Marc Lambardo, the Massachusetts state legislator who authored the resolution. “This is an administration that has been built on a lack of transparency and patronage.”
BOSTON (CBS) – The Massachusetts Department of Children and Families confirmed Friday it’s working to send a teenager at the center of a bitter state custody dispute back to her home state of Connecticut.
The agency also announced that Tufts Medical Center will soon begin overseeing the treatment of 15-year-old Justina Pelletier, an apparent victory for her parents.
Pelletier has spent the past year in Massachusetts state custody undergoing psychiatric treatment as her parents and doctors at Children’s Hospital clashed over her diagnosis and treatment.
Pelletier had been a patient at Tufts undergoing treatment for mitochondrial disease — a rare and controversial disorder where the body’s cells can’t produce energy, triggering chronic fatigue and severe digestive problems.
But when the Pelletiers brought Justina into the Children’s Hospital emergency room last February, doctors quickly diagnosed her problems as psychiatric.
When the Pelletiers objected, Children’s brought in DCF and the state took custody of Justina, essentially ruling her parents were committing medical child abuse by pursuing medical rather than psychological treatment.
Not long ago there was a dust up among some twitter friends and it hasn’t abated yet. In fact it seems to have worsened. This time it is Sam Cook under attack and harshly so. Where this will end is anyone’s guess. One thing is for sure – when things begin to unwind, they tend to not stop until every ounce of bitterness is squeezed out and every person gets blasted. This involves some heavy players in the Steubenville rape case aka OpRollRedRoll and peeps are wondering where this dispute will end and with who. Time will tell I guess.
The art of having no life gets played out right here – ask.fm and twitter. Living to talk to yourself on http://ask.fm/MichelleLMcKee and playing big on twitter are hallmarks of the isolation. The internet IS her life and her best friend. It accepts her rants, drunken binges, meltdowns and vulgarity as only a best friend can and does. It’s always there for her. Always available.
We all know what wilted lettuce looks like and so it is with a wilted loon. Sad.
Susan has spent nearly 4 years with her every thought being about Radio, RadioNewz and Kim Picazio. What we do or don’t do. What we tweet and with who! Who our friends may or may not be. What gets blogged and what doesn’t. Who may blog here and etc…
Can you imagine her quality of her life? When she states on her profile she’s been watching for a long time – she has! The profile she had before this one had me possibly bumping off Judicious! LMAO!!
“RADIONEWZBLOG – THE OWNER HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED. RADIO HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED. EXECUTIONER HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED. IF ANYTHING HAPPENS TO JUD, EXPECT CONSEQUENCES.”
Susan needs to be locked up in an institution, imo, weaving baskets and doing play-doh art. She isn’t, so playing Secret Agent Girl and leading a life of extreme danger (LMAO) is her therapy.
By now everyone has seen the snow and ice disaster the befell the South. It’s a rarity here, so much is made of it when it happens.
The Georgia Governor is graciously trying to accept blame for the way the population was released from school and jobs – all at the same time. It would be nice if that were really the problem, but it’s far from the truth.
The truth is they didn’t significantly pretreat or treat the interstates or anything else. Dropped a few granules on a bridge and overpass or two and then called it a day. The City of Atlanta did some – and also bragged how they moved a million plus people out of the City. They did – only to have them immediately parked on the interstate system, which is maintained by the State.
Southern cities don’t like to purchase and maintain equipment for things that rarely happen. It’s expensive. This snow storm was a repeat of what normally happens here. The City of Atlanta has “some” equipment. The State of Georgia has “some” equipment. Huge stockpiles of the treatment material are seen from several interstate intersections – the ones where it is most visible. Also, most visible is that it never decreases in amount or size.
It would serve the people here much better to just come out and say “we don’t want to spend the money when it will all melt in a day or so anyway – so you are on your own when it snows”!
Birmingham, Alabama also suffered bad decisions. They sent their school children in late that day to avoid the storm. The kids arrived at school at 10:00am and the storm hit about 10:30am. Kids stranded in their schools overnight by the hundreds, if not thousands. Wouldn’t you just love to be the official who made that decision! LOL!
By yesterday afternoon all of the Georgia school children were home with their parents. I don’t know how Birmingham fared yesterday. Well I hope.
The “thaw” will happen sometime this afternoon in Metro Atlanta and then all the politicians can claim victory I guess. LOL!!
Good Samaritans flourished all over the area, so that’s a good thing and possibly the only good thing that happened.
Ok peeps – I’ve been putting this off as long as I can… but now… here it comes. I give up!
First of all there are the rumors that not only is Jud an alcoholic, but also involved in a fall down alcoholic relationship with known abuser, Peaceintheville. In some towns they would be called pub crawlers and such. If you want to purchase a picture of these two crawlers in action – contact Jill Watkins, their official follow along photographer.
I wanted to let all this just sail right past me – but of course, no such luck. I would have included their gal pal, Truth, but she has already admitted she doesn’t live in Steubenville anymore and the low down on that is she ran off to Vegas with a Franciscan University priest who was actually forced to leave town around the same time as she was.
Yes, I know Jud is seen as a drunk on twitter most nights, but that isn’t true. Now, it may be true of Peace, but Jud’s situation is entirely different. I do not want any laughing or BS about developmental delays either. This just isn’t this place for it – this is a serious blog and we need to be serious now.
I am aware that Jud may soon be arrested for hijacking a Jefferson County snow plow while under the influence, but it may well be a case of undo peer pressure. I’m told that Tammy Dixon was raging, in no uncertain terms, that Jud make a public announcement they were not sisters. On top of this friends – was the problem of Jud’s friend, Peace, hitting on her husband. Yes, it’s sad what small towns can harbor and even try to cover up. And no – and no in no uncertain terms is Sam Cook the illegitimate child of Truth and the priest or any of these women and the priest!
Also, pot is a substance that is legal in many states and I think we should withhold judgement at this time.
A quiet and eerie calm settled over twitter town on the Eve of Sunday. Rumors were everywhere a haxor would be visiting, but visiting who? No one seemed to know, only that a visit or visits were imminent.
The rumors flowed over to the Spot Bar in Steubenville, Ohio. Betting was brisk.
Odds were 90 to 1 it would be TruthSeeker. Odds were even better for Judicious and that’s where the big money was being placed. But the dark horse seemed to be twitter gal Peaceintheville. Heavy betting on the trifecta all the way!!
“No Finger Prints” Hanlin is said to have faxed in her bet. Frankie “IOU” Bruzzese dropped his off the old school way. Tammy Dixon found her credit cards mysteriously over the limit and couldn’t place even a meager wager! Suddenly, Scaffidi’s denied they sold Weirton bootleg after 10pm on Sundays. WTF? Even denied having pint jars in their late hours fine dining establishment! Enzo’s said they had never heard of a ‘prinnie’ and denied ever making it or serving it.
A message posted on twitter from Breakz. With all that has been said about him on this blog – I feel he deserves to be heard here.
Ok, before shit gets more twisted than it already is, I want you to hear my side of the story. The WHOLE story… I was hoping this would all blow over without incident, but Pops keeps running his mouth about it and seems hell-bent on creating more unnecessary drama for everyone involved. I didn’t want to put it all out there like this, because frankly it’s no one’s fucking business but our own, but apparently that decision was made without me. I figured I’d give you the real story before Pops has a chance to twist it around to “destroy” me. Some of you have probably noticed that he has vowed to destroy Sam and I as “he was in April.” Sorry, Pops, backstabbing snitches get their own category all together.
Rest of the message: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1s03mdk
No words were minced by this tweeter about how he/she sees things…
Oh noes! KY’s Shrews are having problems of their own! TGIF is an understatement this week! LOL!
No doubt Prinnie probably wants Jeff Bruzzese shut up and blown off twitter after he called her a liar and a clown – but to believe anything public relations spokesperson Michelle has to say about it is a bit of a stretch. She contends – on her twitter – he is harassing Prinnie, trashing her civil rights, impeding her ability to earn a living and even using the Jefferson County Prosecutors office to do so. Going so far as to spam the Ohio AG’s twitter with all kinds of accusations.
What a circus, huh? LMAO!! And to make matters worse – KYAnonymous and his Shrews can’t get the Steubenville Shrews outed… it burns!! LOL!!
I guess you never know, but….
Anyway, after a screen shot of the Joseph Camp twitter was posted here, a commenter dropped of an interesting link. Nothing more was said about it on the blog, but I got barraged with emails about it.
Camp is an imprisoned hacker.
Seems like hopes are running high – real high from what I’m told that the anti-Prinnie camp in Steubenville, which of course is headlined by the Shrews, that the conspiracy word will become reality for Prinnie and Michelle.
Here is an excerpt from a blog by Camp they are praying 24/7 comes their way….
THE CATCHALL AND SLOW LIE: I have personally been to several Federal holding facilities, where nearly everyone accused of a crime in which there is a co-defendant is also accused of conspiracy”. This catchall criminal statute is the government’s tool for obtaining indictments often not otherwise attainable, with the consequences of imprisonment for up “to life.”
The conspiracy charges were possibly at one time a well-intentioned method by which the government could fight organized crime and other high-level offenses that often resulted in murder or otherwise violent conduct, for the prosecution of individuals who were notoriously able to evade legitimate prosecution. However, via the “slow lie” the system has slowly moved this tool, which was originally meant to be used in more extreme cases, into an almost mandatory charge.
Take my own indictment. My college buddy and I face a two-man conspiracy charge for computer hacking, among other charges, all because we knew each other and are alleged to have talked about “what if’s”. By the very use of the charge, the government is prohibiting free exercise of expression. A criminal justice class could be barred from speculating on how a crime could have been committed, because, if they did, they would be guilty of “conspiracy”.
STEUBENVILLE – Three people were sent to prison on Tuesday following probation revocation hearings before Jefferson County Common Pleas Court Judge David Henderson.
Malcolm Hython, 21, of Cadiz was sentenced to 18 months in prison after the adult probation department reported he failed to report to his probation officer. Hython pleaded guilty in October 2012 to complicity to burglary and complicity to theft in connection with a burglary of an Adena home and theft of a pistol in March 2012. He then was sentenced to six months in the Eastern Ohio Correction Center, followed by two years of probation.
James Oxley, 27, of Dillonvale was sentenced to 11 months in prison for failing to report to his probation officer. Oxley pleaded guilty in December 2011 to felony theft and breaking and entering in connection with the theft of scrap metal from a house on Cadiz Road, Wintersville, in August 2011. He was sentenced to six months in the Eastern Ohio Correction Center followed by 18 months of probation. He was ordered to make $4,800 in restitution to the victim.
Oxley violated his probation and his probation was extended in June. He since has only reported to his probation officer once and failed to make restitution.
Scott A. Gilmore, 41, of Steubenville was sentenced to 11 months in prison after he failed to report to his probation officer. Gilmore was sentenced in May to six months in the Eastern Ohio Correction Center, followed by one year of probation. Gilmore was kicked out of the program at Eastern Ohio Correction Center for violating rules. He then was sentenced to 17 days in the county jail. Gilmore then failed to report to his probation officer.
Willis H. Stackhouse, 24, of Steubenville was placed back on probation for two years. Stackhouse was sentenced in October 2012 to probation for trafficking in heroin and possession of heroin. He then failed to report to his probation officer and failed to report for a drug test.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all … another truckload of shit falls all over twitter.
Moving along now to a few who most of us do know – Pops, Sam, DJay, Holly and a few thrown in for good measure before the day ends I’m sure. A big beef brewing here that could easily and quickly get way down and way dirty.
What’s this all about? Well… he and Sam Cook have been having a little war on twitter – some may remember it from it having been posted here before.
Stuff is really nuts on twitter – as usual. And last, but not least, Michelle has threatened to kick my ass again and some other stuff over my shit stirring ways. She’s madder than a hornet cause she thinks I have replaced her as the biggest shit stirrer around here. Michelle wants no competition whatsoever in her favorite pastime!! LMAO!!
Cutting right to the chase – did Prinnie outright lie? Some will say yes and never let that go. Others will say no and hang on to it for dear life. Still others will just be quiet and say nothing. They will simply move on to other things.
Yes, I’m aware many lies were told about many kids in Steubenville, along with many adults. That friends is now fact. It is sad and it is tragic that happened. Looking back on what transpired I hope no one can say any of them deserved it. What transpired was an internet mob and a mob that knew few facts and used the retweet button way to many times.
I’m not going to deal with all the things said about the boys involved in the rape. The rape is not what this post is about. This post is about something bigger, much bigger imo! And that is the cover up allegations.
The cover up allegations consumed much more time, space and words than did the rape, eventually becoming the only thing talked about. Prinnie is blamed solely for all of that it seems. This blog’s comment section became pure political commentary on the powers of Steubenville. It wasn’t just Prinnie.
But let’s deal with just Prinnie for a moment – and it will be just for a moment – a brief moment.
Prinnie lived in Steubenville for a short time. 5 years tops. She has said she enjoyed that time and had a good life there. So, why would she hate it? I don’t know. It would take smarter people than me to figure that out or know why she might.
Prinnie made a few comments about things that didn’t pan out. I will always believe it is Prinnie’s “opinion” there was a cover up – things just didn’t materialize as she had expected. Having an opinion isn’t a lie – it’s an opinion.
So, why would Prinnie think there was a cover up? Why would she make the statements she made? Like the one about the Hanlin family being done? Prinnie isn’t in Steubenville now, so how did she get such ideas? How did she get such information? I don’t believe she made it up out of thin air. Strange isn’t it?
It is my opinion and my belief that we need to look beyond Prinnie and wonder who was talking to her. Who in Steubenville or the area would feed such information and build such expectations? Think about it.
There’s always a devil deep in the woodpile and it usually isn’t the devil you are pointing at. Prinnie’s opinions and expectations didn’t happen in a vacuum. Think about it. Ask yourself who might be the devil or devils deep in that woodpile.
Lot’s of talk about Prinnie being charged and then someone hopes her perp walk is on tv! LOL! I don’t think she will be doing a perp walk, but if she does I hope she dresses to the nines for it. High fashion. Over the top. Maybe a headdress like Cher has worn. LOL! Maybe a mini skirt with 5 inch stilettos and definitely her turquoise jewelry.
Those pushing charges for Prinnie often refer to the New Yorker article by Ariel Levy. In this article, Levy writes that Prinnie said the whole thing in Steubenville was a conspiracy with Jane Hanlin as the driving force. Not those exact words by any means, but you get the idea. You can look up the New Yorker article to see the exact quote – I’m not going to drag it out for this post.
I recall Prinnie saying or Michelle saying – I forget at the moment which one … but that Prinnie believed she was chatting with Levy off the record and then Levy used a lot of the conversation in the article. In fact Levy tried to make Prinnie look as bad as possible in that article with off the record stuff. That’s a wicked betrayal.
It isn’t ethical for a journalist to take casual, tossed around, bullshitting conversation that has been acknowledged as being off the record – and then blast it out in a national magazine.
If Prinnie wanted to pursue a lawsuit against Ariel Levy – she would probably have a good case. Maybe she should.

By MARK LAW – For The Weirton Daily Times (email@example.com) , Weirton Daily Times
STEUBENVILLE – A telephone conference was held Friday between attorneys with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office and lawyers representing defendants indicted by a special grand jury investigating aspects of the Steubenville rape case.
The special grand jury held periodic sessions beginning in April to investigate if additional crimes were committed following the August 2012 Steubenville rape case that saw two Steubenville High School students convicted of the rape of a teenage Weirton girl.
A status conference is scheduled for March 4 for Steubenville City Schools Superintendent Mike McVey. McVey was named in a five-count indictment charging one count of tampering with evidence, two counts of obstructing justice, both felonies, and two misdemeanors, including one count of falsification and one count of obstructing official business.
The indictment claims McVey allegedly committed crimes starting on April 5, 2012.
Visiting Summit County retired Judge Patricia Ann Cosgrove at the status conference may set a trial date, unless both the prosecution and defense have worked out an agreement on a plea.
William Rhinaman, the former director of technology for the Steubenville City School District and the first person indicted by the special grand jury, will have a pretrial hearing in his case on April 7, at which time a trial date also may be set by Cosgrove.
Rhinaman was indicted on charges of tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, obstructing official business and perjury.
Rhinaman was charged with tampering with evidence by altering, destroying, concealing or removing evidence from Aug. 11, 2012, to April 25, 2013, according to the state attorney general’s office.
Rhinaman also is charged with attempting to stop the prosecution of another person by either concealing or destroying evidence and getting the person to withhold information or communicating false information from April 8 to Oct. 4.
The third count charges Rhinaman with obstructing official business from April 8 until Oct. 4.
The perjury charge claims Rhinaman made a false statement under oath to the special grand jury during a July 8 proceeding.
Rhinaman’s daughter, Hannah Rhinaman, is scheduled to enter a plea at 11 a.m. on Feb. 19 and enter a diversion program.
She was named in a three-count indictment on Oct. 23 charging her with two counts of receiving stolen property, a fifth-degree felony, and one count of grand theft, a fifth-degree felony.
According to a press release issued in October by the attorney general’s office, the charges against Hannah Rhinaman are related to incidents that occurred at Steubenville City Schools. However, the charges are separate and unrelated to the previous indictment issued against her father, William Rhinaman on Oct. 7, the press release stated.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said Hannah Rhinaman was employed by the city school district for approximately one month in 2012.
“She took property from the school district and sold it,” DeWine said during an October telephone interview.
A status conference for Seth Fluharty, a wrestling and conditioning coach and teacher at Garfield East Elementary School, and Matthew Belardine, a former volunteer high school football coach, is scheduled for Feb. 11.
Fluharty was indicted on one misdemeanor charge of failure to report child abuse or neglect on Aug. 13.
Bellardine was indicted on four misdemeanor counts, including allowing an underage person to consume beer or liquor, obstructing official business, falsification and contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a child.
Lynnette Gorman, the Pugliese West Elementary School principal, who also was indicted by the special grand jury, reached an agreement with the state attorney general’s office on Jan. 8 whereby the misdemeanor count of failure to report child abuse or neglect will be dismissed by June if certain conditions are met.
Gorman must complete 40 hours of community service and speak to other teachers and administrators in the Steubenville School District on the subject of recognizing and reporting child abuse and child neglect.

Avoiding such a melee is preferred, but it is what it is and it’s there, so …. lol
Everyone has seen the battle develop between Jeff Bruzzese, Prinnie and Michelle. It’s being touted a big win for Bruzzese. Prinnie didn’t answer questions about a cover up and Michelle’s normal vulgar catty snot balls fell flat. No win for either of them… yet.
Sure, KYAnonymous showed up with his bat and wanted to play, but he struck out on the first swing and went home.
It seems as one looks around twitter, a silence long awaited has fallen. As far as the cover up, I think most had come to the realization it didn’t exist. Opinions are easier to change than attitudes, so don’t expect all of this to go down easy.
In what appears to be a strategy to keep the cover up questions from being asked on twitter – Michelle is now bombarding the Ohio Attorney General’s twitter account with allegations that the Jefferson County Prosecutor’s Office is violating Prinnie’s civil rights. It looks like another grand conspiracy is in the crock pot.
If all of that wasn’t bad enough – a tweeter tweeted pictures of Michelle’s son and so called “baby daddy”. These pictures were a shock all of their own and they also brought silence. Shocked silence. The 2 pictured below, son first, is said to have criminal records. It looks like the so called “baby daddy” has several mugshots.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio —
A spokesman with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office has confirmed for NEWS9 that four phone pre-trial status conferences were conducted today in connection with the special grand jury investigation into the Steubenville teen rape case.
The spokesman said that Hannah Rhinaman, Matthew Belardine, Michael McVey and Seth Fluharty had dates set for future appearances.
Hannah Rhinaman has a trial date set for Feb. 19.
Matthew Belardine and Seth Fluharty had another phone pre-trial status conference set for Feb. 11. Belardine was indicted on four counts, all misdemeanors. Fluharty was indicted on one count regarding reporting child abuse or neglect, a fourth-degree misdemeanor.
Michael McVey also had another phone pre-trial status conference set his is scheduled for March 4. He was indicted on five counts, including three felonies and two misdemeanors.
The spokesman told NEWS9 that no other information was available.
After a lengthy twitter spectacle Bruzzese says he is happy Prinnie agrees there was no cover up in the Steubenville rape case. The Jeffster had quite a lively debate with several on twitter and announced an agreement had been reached. We’ll see in the coming days how that plays out.
