Did You Wonder What Happened with Mifflin?

Remember the sexual attack @ Mifflin High School? Wonder what happened with that?

The two boys are in negotiations for a plea bargain– decided upon to relieve the girl from the testimony and trial among other reasons.

Previously:
On June 1 two juvenile boys were charged in the attack. They are 15 year old Brandyn Hobbs and 15 year old Timothy Armistead. Both were charged with four counts each, including two counts of rape, sexual battery and kidnapping. The Franklin County, Ohio prosecutor’s office said the boys turned themselves in the afternoon of June 1 to Columbus Police. They were later released to the custody of their parents’ with electronic monitor devi[c]es.

Regina Crenshaw, principal at the time?
Almost five months after Regina Crenshaw was accused, the case is being switched to Franklin County Juvenile Court. Reported by the Dispatch on Tuesday, October 25, 2005.

The latest?

In her first public comments about the situation, Crenshaw said at her lawyer’s office that she is being punished unfairly.

“I know that I am a good person, and I know that I am an outstanding administrator,” said Crenshaw, who has appealed her firing.

so far:

…Three assistant principals at the school were suspended and reassigned.

….

The administrators also could face up to 30 days in jail and a $250 fine for failure to report an assault.

Assistant Principal Vincent Clarno told district investigators he summoned Crenshaw after learning of the situation. Crenshaw remained in a meeting about schedules and curriculum, Clarno said.

In her hour-long news conference, Crenshaw declined to answer questions about the school investigation.

When she did leave the meeting, she said she waited for police in the main office with the girl’s father, who had been summoned to the school by a teacher.

Columbus police, confused about the location of reported assault, went to the wrong school and did not arrive at Mifflin until about 4 p.m., about an hour after the father’s call and several hours after the alleged assault, police spokeswoman Sherry Mercurio said.

By then, Crenshaw and the father had gone home, Mercurio said.

Crenshaw declined to say why she left the school before police arrived.

  1. I am glad to see the updates. Additional information is available at http://www.tokilaw.com/ Readers may be interested to know that on the day in question 2 reports were made to the police–one of them at the direction of Principal Crenshaw.

    It would appear that the parties involved in the rape case were willing to plea bargain due to the ambiguity/weakness of the evidence. The blurry video showed one boy not two engaging in activity. Evidence that the activity was not consensual would have to come from the victim–who we know has speech difficulties, but whose testimony is also weakened by her own assertion that nothing had happened, as well as the fact that she was cutting class at the time of the incident.
