It makes me sick to see the ones that try to write on this forum for they seem to have an IQ of about 85. It becomes real painful when a person of a much higher IQ tries to read this trash! I know this guy has his skeletons, but most of you seem to have some deep rooted problems yourself. I think I won't read anymore of these maze of dips over dumb do da for my 8yr. old can write better than most of you.

There are no current charges. The Grand Jury chose not to indict on the evidence that the Commonwealth presented to them.

I don't believe that can continue once again to just put it before Grand Jury after Grand Jury hoping somewhere to get someone to bring charges.

If there wasn't enough evidence for this Grand Jury that met yesterday, how can there be enough in October? This all happened in the past and they've brought their evidence and apparently there isn't even enough for a Grand Jury to bring charges.

Charges aren't pending, evidence is presented to the Grand Jury, they choose to indict and bring charges or not. Those chose not to. No charges. The Commonwealth might not be happy with the outcome, but it is what it is.

Whoever is claiming to have "secret" information regarding what the police are doing and what evidence is presented to the grand jury should be concerned for their job, I'd think anyway. If it were real facts they were spreading around when it was an ongoing investigation.

Well, Nichole's family that lives out of State. The Washington Country Grand Jury met on July 24, 2012 and decided there was not enough evidence to indict John W. Price for any crime.

If your relatives aren't telling you the facts, make a simple call to the courthouse, they'll confirm John W. Price has no pending charges.

This is not my opinion, it is fact. This is over.

The original charges were dropped back in June. The Commonwealths Attorney took it to the Grand Jury to try to seek indictments (new charges) in July.

The Grand Jury declined to bring any charges based on the evidence presented.

No charges are pending, essentially case closed.

I'm not sure about the current case would say only the DA knows what her plans are...if she will present it again or even if she has, But I do know from online records that he and his daughter still have pending cases for stalking and causing fear of death in Sept...if you thought you was innocent and the court would prove it why would you try and scare the witnesses.

I don't know anything before the courts and I'm not a part of any cult. The Washington County Grand Jury met on July 24, that was known by anyone who wanted to know. That date is well past. Anyone that wants to know facts instead of gossip can check with the courts and get this same information.

I know only facts as they are given by the Washington County court system, same as any interested party can do.

See, those of you who just like to name call and spread rumors just don't want to know facts.

Facts are easy to get, a simple phone call to the SOURCE, the COURTS will kill any rumor or gossip. There you will find FACTS, the truth about what charges are pending and are not.

There are NO charges relating to any sexual assault against John W. Price in Washington County VA.

Now, it's not NUTS to be able to make a phone call and relay facts, not gossip or what someone who knows someone who knows someone told as a truth or fact but is merely gossip.

Go ahead, make that phone call and find out the FACTS.

Just goes to show you some people would rather believe rumor and gossip than facts right from the Courthouse.

I don't understand why any one has a problem understanding this and accuses me of "something". Any one of you can know the exact same thing as fact. Make a phone call to the clerk of the Court. It's not a mystery or some inside information. It's public record.

Darlin, let me introduce you to 2012. You can find out nearly EVERYTHING you want to know about any court case online. The County posts it. I was just saving you from looking it up. They will most certainly tell you if there are any charges or not if you make a phone call. It's not secret KGB goings on, it's all public records.

You can type in any name of any person and any County in VA and you can find out if there have been charges, the outcome and if there are any charges pending. All with a few keystrokes.

Nothing nuts about that. That's just how things have been for probably the last ten years.

Nothing is done in secret, except maybe an investigation but I've read posts here where people claim to know about taped confessions and signed statements and other articles of evidence that haven't ever been introduced in court. So who knows about those things but I can assure you that charges are not private matters, anyone willing to make a call or pull up a website can know this information.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
