Keeps on Going
Apparently it wasn't the end. The case went to court on March 11 and the prosecutor filed for a continuance until April 20 (Hitler's birthday and the anniversary of Columbine).
I get this information from my wife and she must have got something jumbled because she said that he was offered a plea bargain down to a fifth degree felony with no jail time and mandatory registration as a sex offender for two years. According to the Ohio Revised Code, only Importuning even comes close to those penalties and I don't think Importuning remotely fits the charges.
My niece is living with one of her mother's friends (which may not be good but at least is better than staying home). I hope, no matter the outcome of the trial, that she doesn't move back.
Now I don't know what to think. My wife gets most of this from her mother and some of it seems very distorted. At least this keeps whittling down the days until my niece's 18th birthday.
