Staff report


A U.S. magistrate has released a woman charged with assaulting a federal agent on bond pending her trial.

Rochelle Johnson, 36, was charged with slamming a steel door shut on the hand of Deputy U.S. Marshal Dean Michael as he and other members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force were arresting her son, Trevon Johnson, 20, on a drug possession charge from Columbiana County on West Chalmers Avenue in Youngstown on Wednesday.

U.S. Magistrate George Limbert released Rochelle Johnson on a $20,000 unsecured bond Friday after David M. Toepfer, the Youngstown-based assistant U.S. Attorney, withdrew his motion to keep her jailed pending further court proceedings.

Rochelle Johnson had to be stunned with an electronic stun gun before she could be subdued, according to an affidavit supporting the federal charge against her. Her case will be presented to a federal grand jury.

Now that lady has real political clout! For the next step will she sue for being stun gunned and collect a big settlement?

It's no wonder so many people choose a life of crime and thuggery. Why don't they just apologize to her for the inconvenience, give a half a million and kiss her a$$?
