Dan Kovarbasich is an animal. It was a miscarriage of justice when Burge handed down his so called "sentence." I think Prosecutor Will has a duty to appeal this in the interest of justice. I am so sick of all of the comments about how poor poor Daniel has suffered enough and how he was abused. BS. Daniel is a homosexual who was engaging in a consensual relationship. Nobody, except for his atty, ever said that he was being victimized. Victims don't get cash and cars. I hope a righteous judge gets this case and locks this scumbag up for a long long time.

Spec you don't know anything. The County gave Daniel all the psych. tests they have. Had any raised a red flag that he was something other than a victim and a normal boy who was being abused for YEARS Burge would not have given him probation.. Piss Off

I know more than you think. Dan knew full well what he was doing. He was willing to trade sexual favors for stuff until things didn't go his way. Show me the EVIDENCE that this was anything else. Oh, that's right, you can't. Hurley is dead. Easy to attack a dead guy. Where are all of these other victims coming forward? Oh right, there are none. Where is the EVIDENCE that Daniel wasn't a willing participant? Before you ask for the evidence that he was, let me remind you of all of the stuff he received from Hurley in exchange. Money, use of his car, etc.. If he was such a "victim" why did he keep going back?

Keep your victim crap to yourself. Nobody in the community is buying it. Lock him up. That scrawny little "boy" will see what being a victim is all about in Lucasville. So long Danny Boy. Have fun in prison.

And as far as Burge being so righteous.....please. He is exactly what's wrong with the system. He is still a defense attorney who is incapable of being fair and impartial. He has proven it time and time again. His days as a judge are numbered. The voters will see to that.

EVIDENCE.... Dan was not old enough to consent to sex... The community believes Hurley was a pedophile... You DO NOT speak for the community FREAK...

Name calling. Very mature. I speak for a lot of people in the community. I have yet to find anyone who is more concerned with Hurley having sex with Dan than Dan stabbing him 57 times. Monster. May want to check the law in Ohio. 16 is the age of consent for sex. Next?

Dan was a very willing participant. Now he is understandably embarrassed.

Ha. Not quite. Just somebody is very familiar with this case, and knows Dan. Anyone who has known him knew this day was coming, this was just the excuse he used. IF what they say about Hurley is true, then he should have been held accountable. Unfortunately, Hurley wasn't the one on trial. There was no evidence presented or witness that came forward that said Hurley was a pedophile. Dan's ATTORNEY is the one that came up with this crap. Dan never even said it happened. Easy to make a bunch of accusations toward a guy that has been stabbed 57 times and beaten to death with a pickle jar.

There are different reasons for rage. Victimization is certainly one. Dan has anger issues. The simple fact that he couldn't get what he wanted is enough, in my opinion, to cause him to rage too.

I still maintain that there was no PROOF that anything other than a consensual relationship was going on between those two. How did Hurley get what he deserved? If you have proof, please come forward with it. I will change my stance on this then.

Not necessarily. In Ohio the age of consent is 16. Having sex with a child under the age of 13 is rape. Next.

Why am I sick? It's the law. Get educated. I never said I do it, The Ohio Revised Code states that the age of consent is 16, not me.

Yes, he got psych tests and based on those and everything else the COUNTY you refer to probation department's recommendation to Burge was MAXIMUM SENTENCE, but he ignored their recommendation, and the recommendation or the prosecution.

They always side with the prosecutor regardless of what psych tests say. Burge examined all the evidence.
