Cleveland Rape Suspect Pleads: Yesterday, Walter Jamal Harrison became the latest suspect in the notorious Cleveland gang rape case to enter a guilty plea before 75thDistrict Judge Mark Morefield. However, while most of the other adults have received 15-years in prison in exchange for their guilty pleas, Harrison was sentenced to 7-years deferred adjudication. Of the 20 known adult and juvenile suspects, only 3 are still awaiting trial. They are Devo Shaun Green, Carlos Bernard Ligons and Xavier King. Prosecutors have said there is a DNA sample from one of the crime scenes that could implicate a 21stsuspect. No further information on that person’s identity has been released.


Collapsed Well: One of the three wells used to supply water to customers in the City of Dayton has failed. Dayton City Manager David Douglas said the more than 45-year-old well collapsed last week and now must be replaced. The cost, according to the Dayton city manager is estimated to be in the $2.9 million range. He said the remaining two wells are more than sufficient, at this point, to continue to supply water. A high demand this coming summer could change that.
