Well it seems in this case the people were right until proven right.
I can sum up the whole reason I think the Dispatch and their handling of the
reporting of the Bob Lenon story are a bunch of hypocrites…It is because this story, which has some similarities to the Bob Lennon case (being a hit/skip) tampering, etc.. was written in Aug 2008 prior to any official charges with her full name, age etc published by the Dispatch http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2008/08/17/hitskip.html
BUT she was not indicted/charged until Jan 2009
BTW she got 5 1/2 yrs and tampering was one of her 3 charges. Very similar stories, but we’ll wait to see if the same justice will be handed out.November 20, 2013 10:51 am at 10:51 am #554333

Pro Se said:
We will know if that was the case if the Special Prosecutor foregoes a grand jury indictment and files a Bill of Information instead. If an information is filed, it will likely be for a lesser charge out the gate and the defendant will immediately enter a guilty plea thereto. But it will be obvious if that happens. Ultimately, the cixtim’s family is the most important group of people in this case and they, above all, need to be satisfied with the outcome so I don’t have a problem if he is speaking with them beforehand. It will be obvious enough if he is twisting their arm if an information is filed. Time will tell.
A Bill of Information has been filed in this case. Her attorney is Michael C. Hogue, a former Delaware City Attorney, Municipal Judge and Delaware County Prosecutor.November 20, 2013 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #554335
Pro Se called it right, no Grand Jury indictment, just a bill of information. And no arrest warrant, I mean we don’t want to inconvenience her with sitting in a nasty dirty cell before she has to, right? I have a friend who was arrested on the spot for being caught driving with failure to reinstate his suspended license.
I too was also suspicious that when the prosecutor was meeting with the victims family, that he was trying to get the family to agree to a “softer” more sympathetic charge based on the suspects issues/drama. I think the prosecutor should have to give a more thorough explanation as to why he does not feel that he can reasonably charge the father with tampering (since he allegedly admitted it) and why he is so willing to accept the story that dad “possibly” had the wrong story when he did it. Why would you just accept someone’s word? Is he afraid to actually “try” this case? Would she not agree to a plea if dad was charged?
They should take responsibility without trying to play the system with their influence of personal relationships with ex judges/attorneys, the current county prosecutor, and the deputy sheriff. She should be made an example of on this case because she is a repeat (hit/pedestrian) offender, and she and her family’s behavior surrounding this case suggests that there is no problem that their connections cannot manipulate. Maybe the Lennon family will hit them with a wrongful death lawsuitNovember 22, 2013 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm #554336

Not long enough. I hope she rots.
Even more than that, I hope her father gets charged for tampering with evidence / attempted coverup of a felony (under whatever section of the code that would fall under). I think he gets a pass for the whole thing, despite using his place of business to dispose of a windshield covered in human gore.February 24, 2014 11:52 pm at 11:52 pm #554343

Wasn’t he the one who turned her in?February 25, 2014 11:16 am at 11:16 am #554344

No, he was the one to call the State Police to talk to them about a deer hit after he thought they cleaned everything up enough.
WHO, in ANY instance would literally cut a windshield in half and throw the bloody half away if they hit a deer? No, you call your insurance company and have them fix it. Or, you put the car off to the side and fix it yourself, but you NEVER remove half of a bloody windshield.
Unless you’re trying to protect your imbecile daughter from murder charges.
