The signs are there just like they were for the cop who was shot by his brother in law a year ago or this Bobby Cutts. This gentleman has no business being a police officer and can;t possible keep his job after a felony conviction. Anything short of his firing would be unacceptable and if Robart allows this man to remain a public servant he should be removed from office. this is a no brainer.

Robart - we are watching what you do with this one. Bobby Cutts was reinstated and look what happened to Jesse and Chloe. Fire him so he never returns again tp police work.

In my opinion this is another story where a police officer, that takes an oath to protect and serve the people can get away with causing physical and mental harm especialy to a so called loved one. The punishment in no way fits the crime. It would be in Cutts
best interest to have his trial in the
court room so he to can get away with murder. Its a sad day when law officers
are given special treatment when they
get special treatment for commiting
crimes such as these. Makes a person
wonder just what would happen if his crime would have her crippled for life.
Maybe then he probably would have recieved more sympathy from the judge.
I can not belive this judge would actualy be so concerned about this police officers safety and not the victims. Do they not know that if they
give him a beer or two in jail he could
bring out the best in him and defend himself while being in prison. Whats this world comming to?

I think someone needs to evaluate this
decision and do something about it.
If a person gets drunk and drives they
get a jail term and they must pay a fine. But a policeman gets drunk and beats a female breaks her nose fractures
her eye socket causes her children to bare witness to this and gets away with this. Must be part of the fringe bennefits an officer gets. I think I need to get a job as a police officer.

I am appalled. Six months because he's a police officer, instead of the two-year sentence. First, the sentence should have been for more than two years and served in its entirety, even if he had to be segregated. Second, they haven't decided his employment status? Hello? He is not a low-level clerk. The job he abused requires that he carry a gun. Convicted of a violent felony!!! He should never be carrying a firearm again. What possible reason could they have to keep him on the force?

He should serve his jail time. Criminals go to prison but if your a CF cop I guess not. He beat a woman and if he gets a beating in prison so be it.

As far as I know, Ohio law says he can't carry a gun if convicted. He has been, so why would the police or mayor even say anything about his employment status being in doubt? If he appeals and it is overturned, he may be reinstated. Shades of Bobby Cutts? After due process, he is terminated. It is that simple.

Vote 'no' next time judge elinore stormer goes up for re-election.

This is absolute freakin bull$h!t.

How does he, because he's a police officer, get less time in prison vs. the average public.

This is a violent crime. Arent these the type of crimes we WANT people to do time for.

You said the magic words -- "due process".

Administrative law requires due process in dismissal proceedings. All of this is a foregone conclusion, becuase we all know that he will eventually be terminated from the police department. However, they still need to follow the proper procedures or they could face action for a wrongful termination case.

How do you think Bobby Cutts was able to get back on the force in Canton? It was because his due process had been violated in the termination proceedings. If they would have followed the proper steps, he would have been dismissed.

Okay, I'll call you on this.

Let's see your stats. Show me how much time other people got for the same offense vs. this officer. Use a one-year period.

Time to show your work. Or are you just full of BS?

Unless his case is overturned on appeals he will never work in law enforcement again under Ohio Law. Period. They can give him a desk job without a weapon but that is it. It is normal for a Police Department to put someone on restrictive duty till thier case is over. They do not have a choice b/c charges are just allegations until you are convicted. All this yammering about they should have fired him right away...what if they jumped to conclusions and found out tha she had gotten hurt by someone else and was blamming him? Then you fired an officer b/c you jumped to conclusions!!!!!! But I DO NOT agree with the sentence that he got!!! That is just crazy!!!!

Sounds like you're the one full of BS if you feel police deserve less of a punishment vs. the public for the same crime. 2 years is an appropriate punishment for a felonious assault breaking the eyesocket and nose of a lady.

This is not a self-defense case. Whatever she did/said, he should have just walked.

I'm not a police hater, but I noticed your post originates from cuyahoga falls, Im assuming you are on the force or this 'aho1e' is your friend.

Go out and break someone's eyesocket, cause possible permanent damage, and emotional damage beyond belief and see where it gets you.

Sorry folks but you don't know the half of it. Police regularly (except for the Highway Patrol...most of whom would ticket their own mother) let, not only other officers off the hook, but the wives and children of cops as well. You read about all these cops who have "drinking problems" but how many times do you hear of a cop cited for DUI? Remember the Lodi police letting a fellow officer who could barely stay on the road continue to drive? He was only cited after he ran his car into a ditch and was unlucky enough to have a Highway Patrol officer called to the scene. Or the Cleveland cops who falsely claimed thousands of dollars of overtime but were never charged?
I once heard a judge say to an officer in court that in his 20+ years as a municipal judge he had doctors, lawyers, bankers and even judges appear in his court but never a cop. He then asked, "Are you guys all such great drivers or is there something else going on here?" All he got back was a rueful smile from the officer.

He should do two years or more. This was NOT an isolated incident. This is a dangerous punk with an alcohol problem. Six months in county jail because Stormer thinks he might get hurt in PRISON? Vote against Stormer, she has no clue.

I think someone working in law enforcement should be held in "Higher Standards" then the average person.
When they commit to working for the people and they take advantage of their position then accountability should be that they pay an even greater price.
That would be like me being a banker who stole funds,asking the people to excuse me for theft due to the temptations of my position....
The laws instead cushion them from being prosecuted to the max because of their position being held against them in prison.
Don'tcha think they should have thought about the repercussions of their actions before they broke the law??
Maybe if the judges weren't so lenient to "Bad Cops" then maybe they would try harder to behave themselves.
They just think they are above the law and they simply don't have to abide by it.
This smacking them on the hand approach is a joke, as well as an insult to the tax payers.
Instead Robart is tougher on his non smoking policies then on his police force beating up on woman.

Ah, so now we go from statistics to your opinion. Funny how your tune changed when asked to post hard numbers.

And the point isn't whether or not he committed the crime (I wasn't there and neither were you). The point is whether he was given the same treatment as other people who had been convicted of the same offense.

You couldn't do anything but backpedal and offer nothing but your opinion after stating your BS "facts."

And be careful who you call a lady...
