Limberios Family Letter Writing Campaign

Several months ago the Limberios family came to me to help them get information about their son’s case out.  I was glad to help and things are picking up speed, although sometimes the wheels of justice do not turn as fast as we would hope.  Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office is involved and a special prosecutor has been assigned to the case.  However, the Limberios family is trying to get national attention on Jake’s…

#JUSTICEFORJAKE: Jake Limberios

I was contacted by the family attorney for 19-year old Jacob Limberios of Sandusky County, Ohio about the shoddy investigation by law enforcement, and the absolute failure of the county coroner to (1) even go to the home where Jake died, and (2) the refusal to autopsy Jake to determine a cause of death.   Rather than doing so, Jake’s death was ruled a suicide by accident.   Jacob died from a gunshot to the head…

Onward and Upward

This post is going to be short and sweet and one that is not going to address particulars, but one that is hopefully meaningful and provokes thought and ultimately — action.  The grand jury begins selection tomorrow and will convene next week.  Rather than pointing fingers and accusing others of creating a path of destruction through Steubenville, it is time to let go of the hate and move forward.

Life is About Changes

Third Wintery Weather Rally

I received this in an email the other day and was so touched by it that I wanted to share.  I can tell you that while watching all of the rallies, I have been so incredibly moved by the outpouring of support for Jane Doe, but for all of those wonderfully compassionate and caring people who braved cold weather to let their voices be heard. Third Wintery Weather Rally (Thankful good people like Prinnie were…
