Cleveland Rape Case: We have already reported the last of the 21 defendants in the notorious Cleveland gang rape case was sentenced to prison earlier this month. Liberty County District Attorney Logan Pickett said as this unfortunate chapter in the county’s history is closed, he wants to provide area residents with some insight into the criminal justice system and how it worked in this case. He said prosecutors sought to protect the 11-year-old child victim while taking into account the strength of evidence in each case. They also reviewed each defendant’s criminal history along with their acceptance of responsibility and willingness to cooperate with the investigation. D.A. Pickett said he believes prosecutors fulfilled their obligation and justice was served. Now the district attorney hopes the healing process can begin as this chapter in the county’s history is closed.

Manslaughter Charge: Michael Gary Shannon III, 22, has been arrested in connection with the traffic death of a 2-year-old child back on May 23, 2011. Originally charged with failure to control speed, the 22-year-old Hull resident has now been charged with manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and aggravated assault. While Michael Shannon III was indicted last month, the grand jury action was sealed until he was in custody last week.
