The case was turned over to the Ohio Attorney General. Individuals in Jackson, regardless of their financial status, will not be influencing the case. It sounds like a pretty petty case anyway. Are we really going to waste money (tax payer's money) trying a man for a crime of writing "hurtful" letters. If the letters would have just been placed on their door step instead of being mailed through the US Postal system, it wouldn't even be a crime. Maybe, the Attorney General feels the same way.

Basically, this was a politically driven case. Charges were hastily pushed through by Jackson Prosecutor Before the election, to please his supporters... Which would be the Bowman's, Stockmeisters, etc. They knew they didn't have a case, but wanted to ruin Ancil's reputation. This was perfect timing. The prosecutor needed them and they needed him. It didn't turn out to be a "win-win" situation though.

Always read between the lines...

I don't know the Cross family that well, but I know for years, they have funneled their money back into the schools, the county, and into every charity they can. You won't attend one school fundraiser that they aren't there supporting. I have attended numerous fundraisers for cancer patients or for individuals with terminal illnesses. The Cross Family organized and held these events, donating their time and money to make these fundraisers possible.

Working hard and having money is not a bad thing...

Yeah. Really!!! He should be punished for the wrong he did. Why not cover your tracks, when money talks. To me that`s all he is doing in the community, making himself look good so it will cover the wrong. We the community do have skin and sick of money people stripping it!!

Look up the definition of Freedom of Speech. It does not include writing threatening letters to families.

He did a lot more than just send threatening letters FYI. The letters are just the one thing they can get him on in court. He has bought his way out of everything he has done to people over the yrs and threw more money at the community to get them on his side. Not everyone is fooled by all of this and certainly not the people he has made threats to, vandalized their property and slandered cause they didn't agree with his point of view. Get him the hell out of our school board.

I don't know where you get your information probably from Ancil himself Maybe you forgot about the hand writing analysis that confirmed it was his on all the letters. Hmmmm. And who cares about his cash as you put it what does that have to do with him writing threatening letters to families.
