I can say with a full heart that I believed the public and the officials over Ms. Rist and I am truly sorry. She made history today and the men should be held accountable. Also glad to see tribune have the link to the website so we, the people, could see the truth. Good Luck to all.

Just like her job, she will lose the suit as well. She's just looking for another handout. The city settled once to get her out of their hair. They will now embarrass her publicly. Big kudos to Chief Carey and Mayor Blankenship for not bowing to her threats and demands.

As I said earlier, she did not win anything. The city asked that the entire case be dismissed. That is standard procedure. The judge said to allow it to go further.

It will now continue further toward a trial or possible settlement. The insurance company knows what it will cost to go to trial and made an offer simply to reduce their total costs. Beth declined the offer. The settlement option was always out there but both sides were way too far apart to settle it.

So it proceeds further. This was not a win or loss for either side. It is just part of the ongoing saga.

Pauley and Crum were falsely accused and I'm sure Beth will answer for that later. Carey has not lied about anything concerning this case. Beth has won nothing and will not win anything. Sorry Beth. I heard Wal Mart is hiring.

What does your statement even mean? Are you implying that Christians would not Rule on her favor? Possibly because she is a homosexual? I sure hope that isn't what you mean and if so you seriously need to come out of Bedrock.

I am not sure that anybody realizes how damaging this is to our city. Who will protect us from our "protectors"? City of ironton better settle this and soon, something tells me Rist realizes she has a wounded enemy though.

Pauley and Crum had sex while on duty? Ur a flipping idiot, if they did and there was proof, they would no longer be employed. Better watch with ur slanderous comments, these men have wives and children, never know, u could be next in a lawsuit for straight printing false statements

Beth did not testify about anything concerning pauley or crum. Jamie sparks offered that testimony and had witnesses to the fact of their visits. Once again it appears that is to be a threat towards Ms. Rist life. Carey perjured himself and this judge sees it. The mayor should worry about taxdollars instead of his election.

This judge went by the testimony of Carey,Crum and Pauley. They falsified a document and were all in covering it up with the mayor.
As the saga goes

Jaimie and Beth are looking at spending more time together due to their both committing perjury. It is far from over.

A Federal judge didn't see it that way. The judge has the proof and the jury will get to hear it. Your right it is far from over for the men who lied under oath in a federal deposition. Keep commenting and you can be added to her topix lawsuit. Thank you so much. What does the community think now about Chief Carey and his church. The testimony he gave is for all to see. When you mistreat people for no reason, it will come back on you. It appears this was the story in this case. Whether she wins or not his career and reputation are forever tainted as he tried to do to Beth.

Topix lawsuit for what? Beth's such a great employee and person that she doesn't need to work. She'll just sue you for her income. Sue, sue, sue. She knows that one well.
well

she's one for one. Don't think this Judge can be swayed by politics or corruption like local authorities can.

He doesn't need to be swayed, as long as he hears the REAL truth and not a fairy tale from Beth's fantasy land.

So according to you "beth supporters"it was okay for beth to lie but not the chief? And no one can say anything about her but her fans can slander chief carey and the rest of the police? Without your typical oh so what someone else did it to, what about the fact that she addmitted she was guilty? How would she ever be able to go and testify in court and be of any help? She couldnt, she ruined her own reputation!!!!!I guess the city was supposed to bring her back and have her sit in a desk and do nothing all day since she cant be around felons, carry a handgun, etc while she is on probation, and we should all foot the bill cause the city hassss sooooo much money?WHat is wrong with you people?????? YOU all MAKE ME SICK
