How can you call someone a rapist when that's not what was alleged? The claim was attempted rape?

Left Ironton clearly said it was inappropriate to slander anyone. It is obviously not inappropriate to blame a rapist, but it is inappropriate to falsely accuse people and spread untruths. If the truth sets you free, how about waiting for the truth. Our founding fathers happened to think due process was a good idea and I agree. Remember...innocent until PROVEN guilty, not guilty because people who don't even have facts think so. And here's a thought...the public is accusing one person of rape and one of lying to be a victim, which one has actually done that specific behavior in the past. Things that make you go hmmmm...

He was there, he invited himself, the neighbors saw him and his car parked behind her garage. Text messages from him and his girlfriend bci have. Witnesses, dna, he admitted to being there. He took a lie detector test given by his own attorney. Not smart enough to call it a polygraph. Why did he take a test from his attorney but refuse test from bci. This man is going to jail. Did anyone ever wonder why he shaves his head? HAIR SAMPLES? Are you citizens actually supporting an accused rapist and and drunk driver for a mayor.
I think changes need to be made. After the truth comes out, those who have hated her will see the truth.

Not like two settlements settled out of court. She must know something or they would not constantly attack her verbally and physically. When Lutz got a dui it was low news, the female that has recently stole money is being kept quiet. What is going on with this town?

Marty Stillpass facing prison, jason smith is a waste, mose of these attorneys have been pulled over and let go. The mayor and his dui, well ky doesnt care who you are. The mayor is a disgrace. He will never come back from this. Even though tribune put in paper, they still havent printed any new information. WHY? because it is Ironton. SO, we have a drunk mayor that puts lives in danger, and a accused rapist also making decisions for the city. I say make all of the city council membes need a drug test. If they are clean they can stay if they are constantly impaired or under the influence. They should resign. Believe me, after all of the gossip, accusations, blame and hatred. The truth will come out , it always does.

Hey tame, we have a council member who lost their job as a cop because they falsified paperwork, jeopardizing every conviction that they ever were a part of. That council member is a public disgrace and should resign.

I agree that city, county, state, and any federal official should be required to pass a drug test. Why shouldn't they? I also feel anyone employed by the same above should be tested. Hell, you have to pass a drug test to work anywhere else. These people should especially be tested as the are in many ways in charge of our money and the quality of our lives. Also, many of these people are elected. If you didn't vote you should not bitch. That's a lot of Ironton's problem, everyone .bitches and is quick to accuse but few follow through and do anything about it.

WTF is up with this shit?.....If that had been anyone else in Lawrence county other than a council member or a worker for Ironton,their name would have been all over the paper and they would be sitting in the county jail. So what makes this person any better? What the fact they sit on the city council. Thats bullshit! Just like the big Mayor of Ironton Rich Blankenship getting a DUI. I hope Kentucky burns him a new ass and that he has to attend DUI school, pay fines and court costs and it would be great to see his face in the new Tri State Jailer paper. He should be treated like any other person being gotten for a DUI his title does not by any means make him SPECIAL

THe mayor got $200 fine, court costs, license taken away for 30 dlays in kentucky (what ever revoked license fine he may have to endure in ohio) and has to take a class.....i'm sure the dui, it is on his record..........that is what all first time DUI's get in kentucky..no special treatment

JB collier on his death bed calls this prosecutor that was his roommate at law school. JB asked this prosecutor to take the case, now we find out that this prosecutor let the defense attorney, for the suspect testify in grand jury which is totally illegal. Then the investigator lied about him testifying to the grand jury. This case will probably be thrown out because of corruption regardless of the pictures and dna plus witnesses.

YOU KNOW WHY? Because this town cannot function without corruption. Pray for the prosecutor to do his job and quit focusing on different things in this case. We wish other females will come out to speak about how he has done them. His wife could testify, his girlfriend will testify for him because she has no where to go. No means no regardless what little men do in big positions.
