While I realize that the UCONN "rape" story is a big one, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. It is very possible and also likely that Frank Cirillo was just trying to find his own apartment at Celeron (they all look alike) and thought he was heading to his own bed after a long night of partying. Please don't destroy this young man in the press, as we do not have all the facts. This is not the same situation as the earlier attack and therefore should not be hyped in the same way. There are many students at UCONN who have known Frank since grade school that know that he is not capable of any type of assault. This is far more likely a huge misunderstanding that will prove itself out over time. So, in the meantime, let clearer heads prevail and await the facts.

I know him--he does not live at Celeron. He lives in a fraternity house no where NEAR Celeron. And...people change since grade school. I met him for the first time in college at a party and was told, even by some of his friends to "stay away."

There is a little 5 year old that was taken advantage of in Tolland County and has been almost 2 months and the little girls father is still not arrested. Here it is a high profile case of a man that may have rapped a student and I am not down playing this, but he was aressted in a week and this 5 year olds father is still walking free on the same street his daughter lives on? Justice???? I think not!
