Authorities Search For Sex Offender Convicted in '97 | WB...

Just a belated update: That case I previously mentioned was the Williams case 2011-ohio-3374 and it was decided on 7/13/11 that the AWA implementation in Ohio to certain offenders was unconstitutional per the Ohio Constitution. It was deemed punitive (punishment) and could NOT be applied retroactively. Over 4000 people are positively affected by this. Anyone whose "crime commission date" was before 1/1/08 it can't be applied to. Senate Bill 10 was purposely legislated to include anyone sentenced after 1/1/08. LEGAL battles are costly to the public. Experts tried to tell the legislature that they were going too far. So guess what? We elected those same people to make these problems. Now they complain there is such a budget deficit, well I ask you WHO CAUSED IT? Legislation by knee-jerk reaction or without proper investigations to just "not lose FED money" are not good. Research these issues for yourself, don't take my word on anything. Most likely someone you know will be affected by these laws sometime very soon. I would guesstimate that over 50% of all inmates in Ohio are in prison for some type of a sex offense. Not ALL offenses are child victim offenses, or non-consensual. Some are child with child offenses. "SEXTING " in Junior High cases. Romeo and Juliet cases. (Legal Marriages that your great grandparents may have had at one time are now illegal!) Go watch the Williams oral argument on the Ohio SC website. Prepare to get involved BEFORE it comes down on a family member or someone else you know. More than a few of these "crimes" are not what they really are portrayed to be, they are a lot less "evil" than the media portrays them. Be careful of the media SPIN.  (Sep 26, 2011 | post #16)

Clarification sought on sex-offender ruling | The Columbu...

A simple question for Mr. Dewine to answer. Why did he state this on his website, it it weren't true? www.ohioattorneyge neral.gov/Briefing -Room/News-Release s/February-2011/Re membering-Presiden t-Reagan-on-his-10 0th-Birthday 2nd to last paragraph: "And, when Washington goes too far and encroaches on our Constitutional rights, I will be there to defend Ohio." His office was defending Washington’s (the Federal) stance on the AWA in the Williams case. The encroachment of Ohioan's Constitutional Rights. Things that make you go HMMMM.  (Sep 11, 2011 | post #13)

Soft Drink Names - Columbus, OH

To those in Ohio, if you go to the PEPSI/COKE/Mt. Dew isle and look up in the "giant" or larger type chain supermarket stores, it says SODA on the hanging description sign in the store isle, so you tell me which is correct? Maybe someone's "adding" something ELSE to their soda? I just don't know who... LOL  (Sep 5, 2011 | post #35)

A "Pop" is a step-father, or step grandfather. I would call the SODA what it's true brand name is as a secondary. Accuracy counts.  (Sep 5, 2011 | post #34)

Instructor Charged With Voyeurism May Not Face Trial | WB...

Posted with dripping sarcasm) I beg to differ. According to the MedinaCountyProsec utor dot com website, right in his first sentence, you will TRULY see that your second sentence above does not apply AT ALL in Medina County. He punishes those who are indicted. And apparently he believes he's in the right for it. Key phrase here is "indicted for," not "found guilty of." Glad you aren't here huh? And I am STILL clueless and nuts, full admission here.  (Aug 31, 2011 | post #60)

Nuts and clueless huh? Someone must not take too kindly to the US Constitution and what is stands for. Probably a non-American anyway. Someone NOT secure enough in themselves to actually post a comment either. Try looking up the criminal cases from Seneca and Wyandot Counties from 2008 and 2009 for "failure to comply." ORC Code 2921.331 (Failure to comply with order or signal of police officer,) and you'll find some. Especially when Seneca had the actual arrest and Wyandot takes the defendant out of Seneca's jail to railroad him, then returns him when they are done. "Without " knowing Seneca had already indicted him on the same exact charge. Convenient. Don't take my word for it. Someone else seems to be in denial here.  (Aug 31, 2011 | post #59)

SB 5 outlook looks grim in latest poll

@ghosthunter, with regard to Ken71, he isn't always in the same location. He seems to toggle between Northern FL and Northern GA, so he may actually really be employed, and on the road, despite what you think... Not taking any sides, just noticed that fact going back a few pages. Check it out for yourself. Just being neutral.  (Aug 26, 2011 | post #1545)

SB 5 outlook looks grim in latest poll

<insert humor here> But, I thought that Ohio's BIG BUSINESS was PRISONS???? That is one way to get Private Businesses into Ohio, by privatizing the Prisons (which I disagree with, maybe only a couple at most, and only lowest security facilities.) All kidding aside, I thought that the DRC's budget was the biggest chunk of the States' total budget. Not meaning anything derogatory, pretty much the entire DRC workforce is Union. Makes ya' think. I see no.....thing. My name is Schultz... That's my 1½¢ opinion!  (Aug 26, 2011 | post #1544)

SB 5 outlook looks grim in latest poll

@Retired, go back a page and read my post #1425, we're basically in agreement. I know with so many posts one isn't going to read all 1400 of them.. I didn't. On topic: I just think that if there is a situation in a union that most members "have to," then all members "should, " just to be fair.  (Aug 22, 2011 | post #1445)

SB 5 outlook looks grim in latest poll

Thanks for, and I stand corrected. Better said, "Union Based Employees at all levels of government in Ohio." Still, the point I was making, was with the 15% contribution, and that still sticks. If the union employees are not chipping in that much already, then it should be upon them to do so like everyone else is in the State. All forms and levels of government are crying poverty. Every little bit helps. This I think will help in some small way. There is only so much cash to go around without more taxing, or the FEDs printing some more green colored paper without any Gold behind it.... (and,,,that's another topic altogether.. LOL)  (Aug 21, 2011 | post #1442)

SB 5 outlook looks grim in latest poll

Nothing is perfect, but I do believe in the ONE point that the State-employed Union members should chip in the 15% for healthcare that the rest of the non-state-employed union members must pay at least that much presently. If we're ALL a "union" (not the same exact union) member, we ALL should get the same basic benefits right? Or did I miss something? This SB 5 is aimed at only State-employees. NOT THE GENERAL PUBLIC. Everyone seems to be misrepresenting this as a global thing. It "may" end up having global ramifications, but not as it is presently legislated, and whether you or I believe in its content or not. I think,, not believe,, that the intention of this was to curb spending at the state level. It "may" (insert dripping sarcasm here so I am not misunderstood) NOT have been thoroughly thought out in its entirety. It does make some points that are valid, see one of them above.  (Aug 20, 2011 | post #1425)

Kudos to "Been There" well said, I completely agree with your posts. Unless and until someone either knows someone or is personally on the defense side of the law, they will not know how easy it is for a conviction nowadays. It is NOT supposed to be that way. Indictment does not equal conviction. There is supposed to be a little thing called DUE PROCESS, in between indictment and conviction. It seems that the "innocent until proven guilty" and those two words are losing their meanings by these cops and PERsecutors doing all these wrong things. Public Awareness is needed. Keep reading the news, and all these points will be proven.  (Aug 13, 2011 | post #58)
