Once indicted in Mahoning County, always found guilty.
That is expecially true if charged with rape.
The Mahoning County Prosecutors Office will go to any length to get a conviction.
Perjury, witness tampering, tampering with evidence, withholding of evidence, fabricating evidence, jury fixing, etc...
They do not allow any Constitutional safeguards to get in the way of their vigilante form of justice.
Confession? I highly doubt that any real confession was made. Trickery and creative editing is probably more accurate.
Can you trust any law enforcement official in Mahoning County?
The most important words that a person can say when talking with any law enforcement official in Mahoning County is, "I want an attorney", and then say absolutelly nothing else.
The second most important thing that a person accused of a crime in Mahoning County can do is hire an attorney who is not a member of the Mahoning County Bar Association.

Another interesting fact.
The number of police officers in the Youngstown Police Department account for less than 24% of all sworn law enforcement officers in Mahoning County.
No jurors were related to law enforcement officers of any other local law enforcement department in Mahoning County.
How likely is that?
No reasonable person, wearing judicial robes or otherwise, could believe that the jury was not purposely packed with jurors favorable to the prosecution in this case.
Combine the previous information with purposely withholding exculpatory evidence from the defense and the jury, fabricating charges and perjury by Detective Flara of the Boardman Police Department and what do you have?
Who is the person in the court room responsible for ensuring that the safeguards guaranteed the accused by the Constitutions of the State of Ohio and the United States are strictly enforced?

I failed to mention that one of the jurors was also related to an FBI Special Agent.

Judge Krichbaum is the kind of judge that would make Vladimir Putin proud.
The composition of the jury was analyzed by a published national expert on jury composition.
There were 7 members of the jury pool related to members of the Youngstown Police Department. The analysis concluded that the likelihood of that many persons being related to members of the Youngstown Police Department was 1,250,000 to 1. The professional conclusion what that it was highly unlikely that the jury pool was the result of a random selection process.
Who was the person responsible for overseeing the jury pool selection process? The Youngstown Chief of Police. What a coincidence!
The jury pool analysis did not include the following:
A juror who is the mother-in-law of a former Youngstown Municipal Court Judge.
A juror whose mother was the Director of Parks and Recreation of Mahoning County, appointed to that position by the Common Pleas Court Judges of Mahoning County, including Judge Krichbaum.
A juror who was a school teacher for one of the gymnasts in the case.
A juror who is a next door neighbor of Natasha Frenchko, Asst. Mahoning County Prosecutor on the case.
A juror who had a daughter that attended Youngstown Gymnastics Center at the time of the alleged activities.
A juror who is a friend of a Mahoning County Prosecutor and supported his candidacy when running for a judge seat in Mahoning County.
In addition, the defense presented absolute evidence that the software used for the jury selection was tampered with. This evidence was provided through Mahoning Common Pleas Court Judge John M. Durkin.

Paul Gains and his minions in the Mahoning County Prosecutors Office at it again.
The FBI should investigate the Mahoning County Prosecutors Office for public corruption.
Speaking of teflon, what about Paul Gains and Company?

Krichbaum is not tied to organized crime? Ask him where he got his expensive suits, how much he paid for them and ask him to produce the receipts.

Law enforcement and the court can make anyone look guilty by purposely withholding evidence, committing perjury, jury fixing, case steering, determining what evidence is admissible, giving false jury instructions, etc...
If anyone believes that this doesn't happen in Mahoning County they are completely unaware of the facts and living in a dream world. They had better hope they never have to experience it themselves. Their eyes will be opened to the truth... the hard way.

Judge Krichbaum has no conceptual understanding of the Constitution or of justice.
The primary role of a judge is to protect the citizenry against the unbridled power of the government. Krichbaum regularly conspires with the prosecution to ensure that those in his court are found guilty.
In the case of Dr. Dew, Krichbaum conspired with the prosecution to present the jury with false concepts of law and give jury instructions that were also contrary to the law.
We have a recording that clearly proves that Dr. Dew's case was purposely and illegally steered to Krichbaum's court contrary to the Ohio and Mahoning county rules of court. Why? Because Krichbaum regularly conspires with the prosecution.

Marc Dann should step down... and take his corrupt friend Paul Gains with him. Two peas in a pod.
If the Mahoning Valley wants to gain any kind of respect then Mahoning County needs to put it's own house in order. Get rid of the corruption for once and all!
It goes beyond Democrat or Republican. It is not a political issue.
As long as corruption exists among the prosecutors office, the lawyers, and the judiciary in Mahoning County the county will never recover.
When the wicked rule, the people mourn.

You have no idea what you are talking about.
Greg is not afraid to be responsible for his own actions. Greg should not be held responsible for actions that he did not commit.
Greg was not guilty of a single crime that he was lynched for. If you knew half as much as your presume... you already know that.
