Too Many Foxes in Huron County
The probe of Sheriff's Detective Matt Spencer by the Huron County Sheriff's Department reminds us of the probe of the Gravelle family by the Ohio Department of Health and Human Services.
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation should have been called in to investigate the crimes committed by Huron County Children's Services and the Huron County Sheriff's Department instead of asking a State department to investigate a local HHS department.
Perhaps, then, the following facts would have been made known:
Detective Spencer was fired from the sheriff's department for presenting false and/or inaccurate information. Why has nothing happened to Jo Johnson, Detective Sommers or Sheriff Sutherland?
Public prosecutors and judges have an ethical duty to seek justice in a proceeding and not to taint the jury pool by making statements about a case to the media. Why did it take 5 months to "build a case" before charging the Gravelles criminally on the same day as the permanent custody hearing? Sounds like more foxes guarding the hen house.
