Alycia Layne is a man trap pure and simple--nothing good can come of any affair with her.

Mendte your full of it. Inappropriate relationship my eye. Maybe on your side, she was not thinking about you.

Nice try any way, Lane is going to sue the socks off of you in court regardless. Making up stupid stories will not help you.

If you broke it up why were you still in her business???? Why did you go as far as you did to destroy her career???? Why? Because she would not give you the time of day and you thought you were that guy. Your ego would not let it go so you went all scorched earth on the woman and screwed it up. Lane will be fine she will find another job and move on. You well, after your wife cleans your clock in divorce court and Lane takes the rest you may get a job selling cars.

Thank you for posting the full press conference. I think that while his actions are wrong and despicable, it was fair of you to publish the full press conference rather than the exerpts on CBS3, which were unfairly slanted. It gives me a more accurate picture of Larry's mindset (trying to learn a lesson) and, really, give us what he actually said without editing.
Thank you. I think CBS3 lost me as a follower because of this one. I'm sure that's not what they intended, but that's what covering up does for me. Good job 10.

Ha - back to say this ... Larry Mendte was having an affair with beautiful Ms. Lane IN HIS DREAMS !!!

I seriously doubt this gorgeous woman would waste her time on that loser!

I'll bet the truth leads us to find out she spurned his affections!!!!

I'm still stunned at what a jerk this man turned out to be!!!!!

Liberal thinking?
<blockquote>Nice liberal thinking. Generally speaking if a person compromises one area of their life they're willing to compromise other areas. Unlike the Bill Clinton believers, cheating in one area will most likely lead to cheating in others. You're naive if you think different.</blockquote>
I guess that makes John McCain the biggest liberal of them all since he was cheating on his wife with a woman 19 years his junior whom he eventually married after divorcing his wife.

I don't think Larry Mendte deserves jail time. Some serious community service would do, I think. This seem to be a spat between two co-workers gone sour.

I would like to see the "proof" of their "affair" that Dawn saw. They never mentioned anything except that they had a "firtatious, unprofessional and improper" relationship. That could mean anything, couldn't it? A little kiss here and there maybe? Some tickling? These are very broad terms, kind of like Bill-I-did-NOT-have-sex-with-t hat-woman Clinton and Monica.

I don't think anyone should pry any more about this. It will only hurt Dawn even more. She has my condolences, that's for sure.

the whole story sounds like something youd hear at the lunch table in 9th grade. i liked her, she didnt like me, she badmouthed me, i badmouthed her, she dissed me, i hacked her accounts. these arent adults, they are little kids with big contracts playing grown up. and since when are tv news people pillars of cummunity, they are glorified gossip mongers in fancy clothes and makeup.

Stop spreading lies about McCain, that story has been cleared up and even his ex-wife says its not true.

So - let me get this straight - she was involved in "inappropriate" activity with this married newscaster, sent 1/2 naked pics to another one, was drunk in public, slapped a cop, as well as tried to undermine this guy to his bosses but yet HE'S Wrong! She's the homewrecking pig that takes other women's husbands. She'll be making it big Jerry Penacoli did.
If you actually beleive Larry's story. Since he is a felon and she is not, I would have to take her version. he would say anything to get out of 500 felony counts.

I think Larry made a mistake but the bigger story here is - how this pig of a woman - Alycia Lane - is poison to people around her. She is trouble with a capital T and Larry was just another of a string of victims she will accumulate during her sorry life. I have met many women like her and as a woman - I make sure I keep them OUT of my life because they stain everything they touch.
Victims? I missed that story where her actions had victims.
And Larry bares no responsibility. Lane was single Mente was married. Whose the bigger pig?
Larry's list of victims is much longer.Plus how many other co-workers has he spied on and just never got caught?
It almost sounds like you are saying her beauty is criminal.

Sounds like jealousy to me. Perhaps thats why you can't find a man, bitter and ugly?

I am disappointed I watched Larry when he was on NBC 10 when he was anchor there. Kathy Orr and John B they were all great people I thought.
So when Larry went to KYW and so did Kathy I went to channel 3. Now remember we are all humans and humans make mistakes. Who was the evil one?
Lets see Alycia went to the general manager why because Larry said you can't put your makeup on in my office anymore? I doubt there was any sexual misconduct with Larry and her. He just got in way over his head and he cut it off and she got mad and he tried to get even. Any how they all lost their jobs and ruined there reputations so they got theirs in the end. Now lets pray for the children.
So you condone trying to get even? Perhaps murder would have been an acceptable felony to use to get even then?

I'm not sure I completely believe his story as I have not seen or read concrete proof as to him actually having an affair with Alycia. Doesn't really matter though...he was caught doing something criminal and needs to be held accountable for it. I feel sorry for his wife and kids...this must be very embarrassing for them, to say the least.

So all the flirting and Boink Festing didn't take place... He wanted more, and she didnt deliver, he was jilted and wanted to see what she was doing.
I think that he was a little obessed with her and got carried away, and now that his head has reduced swelling and his hind site is kicking in...

I knew there was more to the story...

It takes 2 !
