listening more to that song "Thank Heavens for Leetle Girls." and especially his little girl lawyer, who took the rest of his money.

He can always make an apperance on Maury, provided he agreees to take a lie detector test

That the young woman (no longer a child) was and is a lying slut is a bit more than a technicality.......That Cipolla was not able to get the lying slut pregnant is a fact, not a technicality. Marcy, are you the fat broad from Victim's Advocates here in Estes? THe one who goes ballistic and lies in court when it serves the needs of your "victims"? While you're so busy worrying about the lying itch-bay of a child, how about some empathy for her victim?

WOW - Cipolla, you are obviously still hostile, even though your freedom was granted on a technicality. Keep in mind the 'dismissed without prejudice' simply means they can recall the case at any time. People like you, predators who think they are above the law, will get caught. It is only a matter of time before you mess up again. If your attorney believes you are so innocent and such a victim, how about you volunteer to watch her kids - we'll see how fast she back petals then. You are sick and you need mental help and STAY AWAY FROM CHILDREN! OH and you intimidation tactics will NOT work on me, I'm not afraid of you so go bully someone else you OLD perv!!

1) I ain't Cipolla, just someone who can recognize when a guy is being railroaded, but as is from your first post, facts and reality are lost on you. You HATE men, and it taints your every waking hour and permeates everything you do, and;
2) you ARE the mean fat broad from Victims Advocate! Wow, am I a good guesser!

in Estes Park that have come and gone and seemingly fell off the face of the Earth because they challenge the status quo Patrick was a victim. A victim of knowing too much about this corrupt town and school district. It's what these people do. You can call them the "old guard" or egotists but it is what it is. Estes park is a dirty little town surrounded by the beauty of God...a typical good versus evil scenario.

Dismissed with prejudice means cipolla cannot be retried. also alleges prosecuter miscoduct.
please note in article that cipolla had nothing to do with accuser.this is court record.should cippola sue the accuser? I would be happy to be on the civil jury.
With DA's run amok and bullying with their tools of state,it sounds like big brother is knocking on the doors of democracy.

Cipolla was never tried - you can look up the meaning on google, this case can be brought back to light at any time. AND before you think him a victim, ASK him if he has ever been with an underage child, ASK him why she had cause to accuse him - the only thing stated was that 2 facts were incorrect - NEVER was the indencency addressed

I am only going to address this ignorance once
I am not a man hater, I am an evil person hater
I do not work for a victims advoc group
The fact that someone on this board would insult a woman about how much she weighs is a testiment to their ignorance and lack of education and class.

may be marcy, but may we ask you why you assume so much?
why should cippola have this still hanging over his head when the prosecution missed the obvious from the begining? They couldn't even bring it to trial.
why are you so qualified to point out evil?
Maybe the thing you hate is logic and revel in ignorance.

I don't assume, just noted that the counts that were brought against him were SEXUAL MISCONDUCT with a child - it was dismissed because of 2 pieces of evidence that didn't add up. It is VERY common for abuse victims to get details wrong, things get fuzzy because remembering the incident is so horrifying. My only point was that he was NOT acquitted of the charges NOR was the fact the he was indecent with a child withdrawn, merely a couple details were wrong.

I am not looking to pick a fight or judge anyone on here, and am a bit shocked at the way names are called and assumptions are made on here. I am qualified to do nothing but give my opinion - which is based on knowing and working with MANY people that HAVE been abused.

Since I am unsure if you are meaning to insult me with the last line of your comment then I will chose to ignore it as everything I have pointed out is backed by the legal system, logical and void of any ignorance.

There was more than 2 pieces of evidence, consider: 1) Mar.20, 2012 this 22 year old woman accused her boss at the Medical Center where she worked, of giving her bruises all over her body. Estes Park police investigated and said " it was completely unfounded." She later was fired.
2) Her co-workers at the hospital had nothing good to say about her
3) 3 days later on Mar.23,2012, she then accuses Patrick of crimes
4)Her best friend ( girl) also said in investigation that she knew her as a habitual liar.
5) During this woman's interrogation, she said " she does not speak to her mother or father. Plus she said she has no friends/
6) Even her preacher father said in investigation " He puleed up behind Patrick's little red car in Jan/Feb. 2012 and he knew it was Patrick." Only problem was Patrick got rid of that car in Sep. 2009.
7) she has 9 miscarriages and Patrick was responsible for her pregnancies.
There were other issues as well but I will not expound on that.

How can it be logical to require a one million dollar bond,10% of it cippola will never see again, subjecting a person to seemingly unwarranted persecution and exposure in papers only to have case dismissed within moments of bringing it before a judge?
Sounds ignorant and unresponsible to everyone involved,especially the supposed victim.
I believe in justice. Reason. The way that Sexual Conduct is presented these day's as guilty until proven innocent smacks of an old fashioned witch hunt. So the same with much of the current justice system.Why did cippola walk out of the court a free man? lack of evidence,as the judge said.And of valid opinion that would of saved everybody involved the trouble or lack of correct procedings to justice.
Lots of victims
