What a pathetic Prosecutor Summit County has. This man raped his own 3 children and then Murders and Rapes another underage girl and gets a second plea bargain by an inept Prosecutor Shari Walsh. Ms. plea bargain herself who touts her victims assistance record. Hopefully the people of Summit County use some sense and send this idiot out of office and back home where she spends most of her day anyway. Nancy Morrison actually wants the job Summit County.

His whole family is nuts. I knew him as a kid and I am glad I never made friends with him. It would be nice to hear that he got the same in prison. Not the death, just all the rest.

Amen VoR! Sheri Bevan Walsh actually fought to keep Clarence Elkins, an innocent man, in jail for 6 months AFTER there was DNA evidence completely exhonerating him! SHERI BEVAN WALSH MUST GO!

I am so tired of reading the same negative comments in every post that I am now convinced not to support your candidate. Dirty politics and name-calling makes me distrust the motives and the characters of the people who practice it. If you are an example of one of her supporters, then she won't be getting my vote.

How is pointing out this pathetic prosecuted's incompetence dirty politics? I have seen numerous cases that this Walsh lady had handled poorly. And go figure they are handled so poorly that they usually make national tv like two different cases I've seen on HLN forensic files where the wrong person was prosecuted. Get rid of her
