The Question

Let us know what kind of news you are interested in? Seriously?
Dear Mr. Marrison:Now, after the public who read your work realizes that they are being handed Kool Aid, I am sure many realize that selective responsible journalism, isn’t responsible journalism. Your article about Cain and why you did what you did is interesting. Certainly, the situation should or could be considered news. Cain hasn’t been charged with a crime; however, you reported the story. Cain denied having sex with his mistress at the station; you still reported the story. Frankly, to my knowledge, Cain hasn’t even been disciplined; however, you reported the story. If his mistress recants down the road, you will still have reported the story. Where your credibility and that of the dispatch crumbles is in the “selectiveness” of the “responsible journalism” to which you claim to engage. When one thinks of a story that makes Cain’s conduct pale in comparison, one need look no further that your own newsroom. Buried in the pile of “What is newsworthy but lets sweep it under the Rug”. As you are well aware, Sgt. Terry McConnell of the Columbus PD is a Supervisor in the SVU. That is the unit that investigates and prosecutes sex crimes. When you look at the documentation that is in your possession, you will see that McConnell reported a burglary at his Reynoldsburg home. The report and burglary were suspicious in and of themselves but once the R.P.D. investigated, they came up with the name of a young boy whose fingerprints matched those retrieved from McConnell’s residence. McConnell was questioned about the name of the young boy and whether he knew the child and as this fiasco began to unravel, he was forced to admit that he did know the child. In fact the investigating officer interviewed McConnell who ultimately admitted to meeting young boys on a gay internet website and seeking them out for “dates”. During interviews, it was established that McConnell had anal sex with the young boys at his home. McConnell claimed that he did not know the age of the boys which is laughable because you would think that a Detective with Columbus Police who is meeting unknown boys on the internet and taking them back to his home would certainly inquire as the their ages. The case was referred by the detectives from Reynoldsburg for Felony prosecution for at least Gross Sexual Imposition but miraculously, it has been buried in hopes that everyone will forget; kind of like what the dispatch is doing. Letting it linger hoping that it can soon head to the shredder because everyone has forgotten. I guess that is part of responsible and professional journalism. How does an agency claim to protect children and prosecute child molesters when it hides and protects one of their own who admitted to more than enough facts to warrant indictment and undoubtedly obtain a conviction. The reports on McConnell are public record. One can only wonder what would happen to McConnell if he were charged and arrested and O’Brien goes on T.V. encouraging other “victims” to come forward. But for now, McConnell will enjoy the protection of the brass. Who by their cover-up are endorsing his conduct. To add to the reality of these facts, Detective Amy Welch, McConnell’s subordinate and close friend on the Special Victim’s Unit, assisted MAC by going out of her jurisdiction and into that of Reynoldsburg to interview to protect McConnell. She had no authority to engage in any investigation pertaining to McConnell. Ironic, how a detective in the SVU meets children on the internet for “dates” takes them back to his home, is investigated and he is referred for felony prosecution and another Detective in that same SVU department works to cover-up his indiscretion. Not every CPD officer is happy with how our department covers this up. What is good for CFD should be good for CPD.
Thank you for your article. Keep feeding the public the kool aid. Much more to come.
Sincerely,
Non Kool Aid Drinking Citizen

See, that's the mistake Yolanda's husband (Todd Smith) made. He was getting his dates from Centennial High School, and that is not legal. Had he known which websites to go to, he could have had some young snatch and nobody would have known or cared because it's legal.

*** Some of the smaller counties try to prosecute these cases as "contributing to the delinquency of a minor" ... but I think it's generally accepted that 16 is the age of consent wether people like it or not.

You see ABC 6 run that same question over and over. After reading the post by the question, which I initially questioned, I found out it is true. There was an entire investigation in Reynoldsburg where Child Sexa Cop lives. They referred the case for prosecution to franklin county and they buried it. ABC 6 how is that for news that parents may want to hear about? Special Victim Unit Detective Terry McConnell admits to meeting underage boys on gay website and taking them back to his home. Interviews confirm Detective having anal sex with two minors at his residence. In fairness to McConnell he claims he didnt know their ages and was only cooking meals for them. Maybe not only interesting and newsworthy but also a great warning to the public to hide your underage boys if this CPD cop is out and about.

Hmmmm, it sounds like he was tossing salads rather than cooking.

You can't prosecute someone for not breaking any laws, moron!

The legal age of consent in Ohio is 16. That means no matter how old you are you can have sex with a 16 year old if it is consensual. Between the ages of 13 and 15.999 having sex with somebody that age is only illegal if you knew that they were under 16. THAT IS THE LAW.

You sound like some jilted and lover of Detective Terry McConnell. So sorry he left you for younger and more attractive meat. Get over it.

Repeat: He has to KNOW they were 15. If they advertise themselves as being 16 on the internet, then that's good enough. He's not required to ask for ID before they share a special evening of buhtt sex together.

THAT'S THE LAW!

So you think an experienced detective (in law I mean - lol) wouldnt think that he needs to ask a minor how old he is before he plugs them? I guess anyone that has consensual sex with a child can say "I thought he was 16".

I gave you the ORC section in the other thread.

The answer is NO. He had no duty to ask. If the kid says 16 that's good enough

nah got it right. It would be stupid to think that someone can say "Uh, duh, he told me he was 18" when common sense tells you that he aint and walk away from a child porn case. Too bad no one ever checked his computers. CPD! CPD! CPD!How many more kids did you Victimize CPD Detective McConnell?

Not really an excuse. I'm sure the cop had printouts from the website where they list their age. I'm sure he knew exactly what he was doing and did the right things to cover his "ass". Pun fully intended

The small counties are the once that prosecute these cases. That might be how Walt found himself in not to mention the fact that Lyndsay Woodrum Hoti was 14 and he lied about being someone in her age group.

Don't get me wrong now, I don't condone this. But I'm at the point where I just understand there are stupid people that are going to do stupid things and as far as I'm concerned let them go at it.

If nothing else, its not only amusing but it gives you an example to point out to your kids about what not to do. People like these and I'm talking both the kids and the cop provide a vivid example for illustration. let them be as hedonistic as they want.

It doesn't matter what you think he should have done, it matters what the law says and the part of the law that applies says the following:

1. No person who is eighteen years of age or older shall engage in sexual conduct with another, who is not the spouse of the offender,

a. when the offender KNOWS the other person is thirteen years of age or older but less than sixteen years of age

NOTE THE RELEVANT WORD HERE IS THAT HE HAS TO KNOW THE KID IS UNDER 16 AND THAT IS IT. IT DOESN'T SAY HE HAS TO ASK FOR ID OR PERFORM A BACKGROUND CHECK.

b. or the offender is reckless in that regard.

RECKLESS IN THIS CASE I WOULD ASSUME MEANS SOMEONE WHO OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T LOOK 16 OR SOME OTHER UNIQUE SITUATION.

c. Since only sex between the ages of 13 and 15.9999 is only illegal when known to the person over 18, by default that means that sex with someone 16 amd older is legal.

d. Sex with someone under the age of 13 is always illegal whether you know their age or not.
