On the 22nd of every month, Robert Olds publishes a post on Facebook. Each will usually include a photo of her niece, Rikki Olds, or a memento in her honor.

It has become a tradition, part of his ongoing efforts to keep his niece’s memory alive. Rikki, 25, was one of 10 people killed about a year ago at the Table Mesa Drive King Soopers where she worked.

In the immediate term, a mass shooting weighs heavily on the spirit of a community. But this attention often fades.

“Too often, it’s the reality: everyone thinks about it in the moment. One month, two months, three months… their life goes on,” Robert Olds said. “When you’re a victim, you’re kind of stuck in that moment.”

In addition to Rikki, Boulder Police Officer Eric Talley, 51; Denny Stong, 20 years old; Neven Stanisic, 23 years old; Tralona Bartkowiak, 49 years old; Teri Leiker, 51 years old; Fontaine Suzanne, 59 years old; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Lynn Murray, 61; and Jody Waters, 65were killed in the shooting, which happened just before 3 p.m. on March 22, 2021.

The ten people killed March 22, 2021 at the Mesa King Soopers Table were Officer Eric Talley, top row from left, 51; Tralona Bartkowiak, 49; Denny Stong, 20; Rikki Olds, 25; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Jody Waters, bottom row from left, 65; Lynn Murray, 62; Neven Stanisic, 23; Teri Leiker, 51; and Suzanne Fountain, 59.

South Boulder King Soopers remained closed until February, when the store reopened with a new design in response to community and employee feedback. King Soopers is planning a memorial tree garden in remembrance of those lost in the shooting.

Rikki grew up in Lafayette and graduated from Centaurus High School in 2013. She started working at King Soopers in 2016, starting as a deli clerk before moving on to deli manager.

At the time of her death, Rikki was a front-end manager, usually responsible for supervising all employees in a particular section, such as cashiers and customer service representatives, and was training to become a store manager.

As he reflects on what he has lost, Robert struggles to remember that Rikki will no longer be around for the everyday moments of life.

“For me, personally, it lacks the randomness of going into the house,” he said. “Me teasing her hair color of the month or any new tattoo she got.”

And perhaps even more than his own stories, he was comforted by the countless stories he heard from friends and colleagues in the months following Rikki’s death: jokes about interactions with customers and times when she went out of her way to make people laugh.

“I think it just reflects his character,” Robert said. “Also, I think it was kind of her way of healing from the trauma she faced in her life.”

Rikki’s mother left when she was young and she and her brother ended up living with their grandparents, he noted.

A fight for justice

Losing the chance to celebrate birthdays and holidays with Rikki or hang out with her randomly has usually been the hardest part of the loss.

But the most unexpected difficulty? The paperwork and more bureaucratic steps that must be taken when losing a loved one, especially in such a violent and public way.

“No one logically thinks they’re going to have to mind their 25-year-old relative’s business,” Robert said. “It’s really difficult.”

In the aftermath of the shooting, the Olds family was one of the few to regularly agree to be interviewed and speak at press conferences when there are updates in court proceedings. The other nine families declined an interview for this story.

“If I can keep the memory of my niece, so that people don’t forget the story and don’t forget her…she was part of it,” he said.

“It’s my way of fighting for justice for her and for everyone else,” Robert later added.

Overall, Robert hopes what happened at this store will inspire company-wide training and safety changes.

When King Soopers reopened the store earlier this year, it declined to share any specific changes or upgrades made to the security of that particular store or any member of the chain, citing security concerns over the revelation of measures. security in place.

Still, while his various efforts for justice have helped him cope, Robert acknowledges that his feelings about losing Rikki continue to evolve.

Survival, anger, therapy

For the first few months after his death, Robert remained in survival mode.

Then he got angry. He said rage ultimately cost him relationships with people he cared about.

Mental health resources

BoulderStrong Resource Center: 2935 Baseline Road or 303-545-0844Colorado Crisis Services: 1-844-493-8255 or text “TALK” to 3825Crisis text line: Text 741741 from anywhere in the country to reach an advisorNational Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 800-273-8255

“It’s something that I don’t think gets talked about a lot – you as a person and as a victim of it, you change,” Robert said. “True, false or indifferent, there are relationships that are affected.”

This experience is common among people who experience trauma, according to the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies.

“No matter what traumatic event or circumstance a person endures, whether it is the sudden death of a loved one, an air disaster, a hate crime, communal violence, child abuse childhood, sexual assault, war or refugee, it is natural for the experience to affect relationships with others,” the company noted in a report.

After much conviction and encouragement from his support system, Robert began therapy. He said it was a necessary step as he processed his grief.

But everyone deals with trauma differently and on their own timeline, according to Karen Schweihs, director of the Boulder Strong Resource Center, a resource center run by Mental Health Partners of Boulder and sponsored by King Soopers.

“We know that trauma happens at times that are unpredictable for people,” she said.

The Boulder Strong Resource Center opened in the days following the shooting and moved to a permanent location on Baseline Road in June. Rep. Joe Neguse, D-Lafayette, secured $275,000 in federal funding for the center, which continues to serve an average of 200 visitors each month.

The center, open to those affected in any way by the shooting, offers several services, including comfort dogs, counseling, massage and art therapy.

As Boulder marks one year since the shooting, the families of those lost, others inside the store, and the community at large continue to deal with the aftermath.

Ensuring people stay connected and have continued support in the aftermath of mass violence is critical, according to a report by the American Psychological Association.

For this reason, Schweihs expects the Boulder Strong Resource Center to remain open indefinitely.

“We know that after a tragedy the impact is long term,” she said. “These 10 people will never be forgotten and the community needs to heal. This takes lots of time. There is no quick fix.

Locked content for Slate Plus members Dear Uncensored Prudence: “Rose by Any Other Name” To […]]]>

Our advice columnists have heard about it over the years. Every Sunday, we dive into the archives of Dear Prudie and share a selection of classic letters with our readers. To rejoin Slate More for even more advice columns – your first month is just $1.

Dear Prudence,

My ex remarried a few years ago to a woman 15 years younger than me, with a doctorate and quite wealthy. I basically owe him my life. My boyfriend was arrested, I got pregnant, and our house nearly burned down. She provided my children and me with an apartment she owns, paid for a nanny and helped rebuild the house. My kids spend most afternoons with their dad (including my 3 year old son, which saves me childcare costs). I’m back on my feet and stifling the nasty comments whenever my kids talk about her. I just simmer and sometimes I’m so ashamed that I make myself sick. What’s wrong with me, and how can I stop it?

You have been through an incredibly stressful and painful series of events, were saved by your ex’s seemingly perfect new wife, and are now exhausted from sitting in a position of constant gratitude. I don’t think anything is wrong with you – you feel resentment, insecurity and shame next to this remarkable woman who has done so much to help you, which is quite understandable – but I think there is is wise of you to seek to reduce your feelings. It’s wonderful that you are now able to take care of yourself and your children without outside help, and I think at least some of this newly freed up time and funds should be used to pay for a therapist. You are right to swallow your disparaging remarks in front of your children. They have a warm and loving relationship with their mother-in-law, and you shouldn’t try to damage it, either for you or for them. But you need someone to share your unpleasant and uncharitable feelings with, and a therapist will help you work through your resentments without hurting your relationships. —Danny M.Lavery

From: “To help! My ex’s new wife put me through a tough time, and now I’m resentful.(December 29, 2015)

Dear Prudence,

Before meeting and marrying my husband 11 years ago, I felt like I was bisexual. I fantasized (and still do) about being with women and men; however, the opportunity to be with a woman never presented itself and I never pursued it. I’ve made jokes about being with a girl, but my husband says it “doesn’t matter” to him. Fast forward through the years and I still feel like I’m missing something sexually and blame myself for not doing it before I settled down. Our sex life has been hot and cold – my desire is much higher and I like more variety than him. I have a good friend who recently told me she is bisexual and we briefly discussed experimentation together. We are both secure in our marriages and not looking for a relationship outside of friendship and nonsense together. Plus, I think it can actually help me get what I need sexually while taking some of the pressure off my husband. I thought about going without telling my husband just to see if it’s something I like. However, I don’t like the idea of ​​doing this behind his back and I’m just as nervous about telling him. I don’t want him to question everything in our marriage about this. Am I crazy to have thought of that?

I can’t tell if you were really honest with your husband about your sexuality. Joking about how you’d like to tour with Beyoncé isn’t exactly explaining that you think you’re bisexual. Since you are seriously considering finally following through with your desires, I think it is time to explicitly confess them to your husband. I recognize that sneaking around with the other woman can actually increase the thrill of this romance. But you’ll really put your marriage in jeopardy if you get caught. So talk to your husband about it. It will be a complicated conversation that will stir many emotions in both of you. He can be devastated. Alternatively, he may surprise you and say he sanctions your exploration. You, of course, have to be ready for him to express some of his hitherto unexpressed desires that he would like to act on himself. —Emilie Yoffe

From: “To help! My husband won’t take my hints about having a threesome seriously.(April 15, 2013)

Dear Prudence,

When my wife and I got married in college, we discussed and planned a future: finish our degrees, live abroad for several years, then come back to the United States and have children. Then her father was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. We both dropped out of school and moved back to his small Midwestern hometown. I took over the family business while my wife supported her mother and helped raise her younger brothers. It was four years ago. My stepfather is fortunately healthy and in remission. My wife was able to telecommute to complete her education and works for the local school district. His brothers are in their senior years of high school. Last month we had a pregnancy scare and I panicked. I felt nothing but relief when it turned out to be a false positive and my wife and I had a serious argument. I love his family, but the business is tedious and mind-numbing. I’m good at it, but I want to at least TRY to live my dream, if only to say I gave it a shot. I told my wife that I wanted children but not now and not here. I want to come back to our plan. We have a lot of money saved. Even if it’s only been a year or two of hikes, hostels, and ridiculous hopes, I feel like it’s my turn. I need this. My wife tells me that I obviously hate her family and her hometown. I pointed out to her that I came here for her, took over her family business and gave up on doing my masters and seeing my family every day (we lived an hour away from them) . I’m happy enough to talk about having kids and moving here after our adventures. We still fight and spend most of the time in polite silence when we see our families. I do not know what to do. I love my wife and I don’t want to see the world without her, but I resent it. I gave and gave and now I feel lied to. Help me please.

Looks like it’s a conversation you postponed (maybe because you felt like you couldn’t have it while your wife’s father was still sick) until the only way to get it was to explode. Now, you two have to be scrupulously honest about what you want in order to catch up with the last few years of tiptoeing and guesswork. Does your wife want to stay in her hometown forever? Would she like you to run the family business for the rest of your life? Tell her that you thought you were both okay with graduating together and traveling for a few years, but she seems to have changed her mind – does she still want to? Is she ready to do anything other than live near her family? If she’s not willing to, are you willing to compromise and stay? Couples counseling will help you answer these questions, as there are many options between “traveling the world” and “staying by my father’s side until he dies” that could be available to both of you. But you need to make it clear if you’re not able or willing to spend four more years (or even a year) on your current situation, before the next pregnancy scare happens. Use protection while waiting. —DL

From: “To help! I gave up my dreams to help my wife take care of her family, and now I’m resentful.(December 13, 2016)

Dear Prudence,

I recently found out that my husband has been texting a co-worker for over a year. I knew they texted about work, but now I know they texted mornings, evenings, and weekends about random things. None of the texting is romantic, sexual, etc., but it really made me feel betrayed. I knew nothing of friendship and constant contact. He frequently tells me about text messages he receives from other friends but this person has never been mentioned. He maintains that they are just friends and that nothing has been hidden from me. How can I pass this up when I feel like he’s been lying by omission for so long.

I may just be a misanthrope, but I don’t understand the thrill of an open line to exchange the banalities of life. You say your husband and his co-worker are texting endlessly about their day, so it looks like you’ve read the whole book. You’re the only one in the marriage, so you have to figure out if your husband is just one of those people who’s compulsively welded to his phone, or if he’s getting some kind of thrill from texting him messages like “Why is this that the person in front of me at Starbucks always buys for the whole office?” Under these circumstances, a semi-intimacy can develop which is not entirely fair, but which also leaves no incriminating traces. Your husband is in constant contact with a co-worker and they don’t discuss sales reports.I take it your question about how you let it go is one forced on you by your husband who insists you don’t “You have nothing to worry about. But at the very least, he owes you an honest exchange about it. It’s fair for you to say that you feel caught off guard by the fact that he has a seemingly close relationship with someone.” one at work he never lied about given the name and with whom he remains in frequent contact during your private time. —EY

From: “To help! My husband texts his co-worker all the time.(March 10, 2014)

More advice from dear Prudence

My brother is 30 and used to making bad choices including a DUI and probation. After several years adrift, he finally seemed to pull himself together. He was accepted into graduate school and did well enough to be offered a teaching job after graduation. However, I recently found out that my brother had been accused of sexual assault by an undergraduate student.

The Assemblies of God recently settled a sexual assault lawsuit brought by a group of men who claimed they were abused as children while attending the Royal Rangers Christian youth programme. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed. This case marks an ongoing trend in which various religious organizations have had to settle lawsuits for clergy sexual abuse in one of their youth programs.

About the Royal Rangers

the Royal Rangers Activity-based church ministry for boys of all ages. It’s kind of like a Christian boy scout program. The Royal Rangers are affiliated with the Assemblies of God Church. The stated mission of the Royal Rangers is “to evangelize, equip and empower the next generation of Christian men and lifelong servant leaders”. The Royal Rangers have chartered parties in several states, including Oregon, Pennsylvania, California, Idaho and North Carolina.

The adult mentors who participate in the Royal Rangers program are church members or ministers. Individual churches assume the obligation to select mentors and oversee their activities with minor children in the program.

Sexual abuse charges against the Royal Rangers

In August 2021The Assemblies of God has settled 2 separate lawsuits for an undisclosed amount with a group of Oregon men who participated in the Royal Rangers program as children.

The first lawsuit was filed in 2016 by 3 plaintiffs who alleged that Assembly of God pastor Todd Scott Clark and Royal Rangers leader Ralph Wade Gantt sexually assaulted them in the 1980s. claimed the abuse took place while they were attending Royal Rangers activities and events. Both Clark and Gantt were convicted of crimes of sexual assault in 1988 for incidents that were unrelated to the Royal Rangers.

Two years later, in 2018, another group of 6 men in Oregon filed a lawsuit against the Assemblies of God making almost identical allegations. These men claimed to have been sexually abused and raped by Todd Clark and Ralph Gantt as children. The alleged assaults happened while the boys were attending sleepovers as part of the Royal Rangers scheme. The lawsuit claims the boys informed church leaders, but their claims were summarily dismissed and nothing was done.

Both of these lawsuits sought to hold the church liable for sexual abuse under an agency theory. Since the church was responsible for the Royal Ranger program and supervised the mentors participating in the program, it could be held legally liable in a civil suit for acts of abuse committed during the program. The 2018 lawsuit was made possible by recent changes to Oregon law that extended the statute of limitations for bringing lawsuits like this involving childhood sexual abuse.

Another Royal Rangers mentor charged with sexual abuse

In September 2020, Michael Schechterly, a Perry County judge in Pennsylvania who was also a mentor in the Royal Rangers program, was charged with sexually abusing a 12-year-old boy. Schechterly met his abuse victim while on the Royal Rangers scheme, although it is unclear whether the incidents of sexual abuse occurred at Royal Rangers events or programmes.

Verdicts and Settlement in Other Sexual Abuse Lawsuits

Although the amount of the recent settlement in the Royal Rangers sex abuse lawsuits has not been disclosed, we can get a good idea of ​​what the settlement amount might have been by looking at the payouts in the abuse cases. previous sex.

2021, Florida: Verdict of $6,000,000. A 17-year-old girl has accused her high school teacher of sexual harassment and abuse. She alleged that school employees had received complaints about the teacher’s sexual predation. The girl also alleged that the school board failed to investigate these complaints and protect students from its abuse. A jury awarded him $6,000,000.

2019, Illinois: verdict of $2,500,000. A woman has accused her former kindergarten teacher of sexual abuse. She claimed her abuse had left her in severe emotional distress. The woman alleged that the school district failed to check the teacher’s background, failed to supervise him, failed to enforce sexual abuse prevention policies, prohibited him from being alone with her and had not trained students and employees in the signs, prevention and reporting of sexual abuse. The jury awarded $2,500,000.

2019, Florida: Verdict of $4,500,000. A woman has accused a United Methodist minister and a licensed mental health counselor of sexual abuse. She reported that he manipulated her into having sex during counseling sessions. The woman claimed that the abuse caused her to suffer from depression, severe emotional distress, anxiety, humiliation, difficulty concentrating, nightmares, eating difficulties, post-traumatic distress disorder and suicidal thoughts. She alleged negligent retention against The United Methodist Church. The jury awarded $4,500,000.

2019, California: $1,975,000 settlement. A woman accused two police officers of sexual assault. She reported that this happened after they arrested her for drug possession.

For the first time, the National beat Labor in a major poll.

NATIONAL: 39%

WORK: 37%

GREENS: 9%

ACT: 8%

Maori Party: 2%

This is a shock wave from a poll.

As TDB pointed out at the time, more than 50% of the protesters on the lawns of Parliament voted Green/Labour and came from rural and provincial electorates.

TDB recommends NewzEngine.com

Labor of course lost that vote.

Labour’s failure to do anything meaningful about the cost of living crisis is pushing those who voted Labor hoping for transformative change straight into the arms of the National.

I think the way highly identifiable Labor and Green proxies on social media branded everyone who protested as “Nazis” probably didn’t help.

The Woke’s alienating devotion to attacking anyone who disagrees with them is also a problem.

It’s hard to pretend to care about poor brunettes while shouting NAZI at them.

The real danger for Labor now is that they cannot win without the Maori party and with the current level of criticism aimed at anything to do with co-governance, the ease with which ACT and National can paint a Labour/Green government /maori party is making the election almost unwinnable for the left now.

The political left has spent too much time on identity-based signals of political virtue and not enough time making people’s lives easier.

We could have done more to feed the kids, make public transport free, welfare, housing and supermarket duopolies, but we decided to do a whole lot of woke bullshit instead.

As economic anxiety mounts for the working classes in New Zealand, watch the response from the New Zealand political left.

  • Gerrymander sexual assault laws so that any man accused of rape is convicted.
  • Declaration of emergency on climate change that does nothing.
  • Strangle free speech with a blasphemy law and criminalize the misuse of pronouns.
  • End gay conversion therapy that proponents can’t quantify.
  • Theory of critical racism in 0range Tamariki.

For the 200,000 children living in poverty, 25,000 on emergency housing waiting lists and the generations excluded from home ownership, the response from the New Zealand left is a wakeful commotion.

Rather than focusing on jobs, homes, and poverty (because they’re tough), we get signals of virtue from the middle class.

The right cannot believe their luck.

You know things are bad when Chris Luxon, who owns 7 properties, can make Jacinda seem out of touch when it comes to a cost of living crisis.

After Cara Wald leaves her position, Bethel is looking for someone to fill a role focused on Title IX enforcement and support for victims of sexual assault.

Since its passage as part of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title IX has protected individuals from discrimination on the basis of sex for education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance.

The Civil Rights Act states that “No person in the United States shall, because of sex, be excluded from participation in, denied benefits, or subjected to discrimination in connection with any program or service.” ‘an educational activity receiving federal financial assistance’.

Title IX obligations encompass many different aspects of the education system, including recruitment, admissions, counseling, financial aid, and athletics. Much of the law deals with sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence.

Bethel University remains consistent with Title IX and, as stated on Bethel’s website, is “committed to maintaining a Christ-centered community free from discrimination, including sexual harassment in all its forms.”

All members of the Bethel community are expected to comply with Bethel policies regarding sexual misconduct and sexual harassment. If this does not occur, community members may report instances of sexual misconduct or sexual harassment to Bethel’s Title IX Compliance Coordinator/Officer. Employees are required to report cases unless they are Confidential Contacts. These people include employees in Counseling Services, the Office of Christian Training and Church Relations, and Health Services.

Cara Wald, who previously served as Title IX Coordinator/Compliance Officer as well as Vice President of People and Culture, announced her resignation on October 15, 2021, with her last official day being November 19, 2021. Since On November 17, 2021, Dean of Student Success and Retention for the College of Adult and Career Studies, Ryan Gunderson served as Acting Title IX Coordinator. He has taken on Title IX coordinator responsibilities in addition to his position in Bethel’s CAPS program and will continue to do so until someone new is hired.

The Title IX Coordinator position was posted on Bethel’s job postings in early February and was updated on February 11th.

Vice President of Finance Amy Blaz was in charge of the hiring process. However, President Ross Allen announced on February 10 that Blaz would step down from his position. Blaz expects another cabinet member to become the head of the Title IX coordinator hiring process in the coming weeks.

Asked about the position, the hiring process and the need for an interim coordinator, Blaz said, “At Bethel, we are committed to maintaining a Christ-centered community free from sexual misconduct, sexual harassment and harassment. sexual violence. Our Title IX Non-Discrimination Policy serves to protect students and employees from discrimination based on gender. The Title IX Coordinator position specifically manages this process for us and is also required by Title IX legislation. »

Gunderson did not respond to inquiries from Clarion regarding these matters.

Blaz hopes the position will be filled by mid-March. Until then, Gunderson remains the point of contact for all matters relating to sexual harassment or Title IX and its policies.

Nearly six years have passed since state prosecutors and Comal County Sheriff’s Office deputies alleged that a Canyon Lake man sexually assaulted an 11-year-old girl.

A Comal County jury selected Monday opened Tuesday hearing testimony in the trial of Stephen Charles Hernandez, 60, charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child and sexual assault of a child under 14. .

Comal County Assistant District Attorney Jessica Frazier is suing the state while defense attorneys James McDermott II and Jackson Lindsey represent the defendant in 466th District Court Judge Stephanie Bascon.

The two charges in the indictment, handed over September 28, 2016, stem from separate incidents with the same accuser. The aggravated charge, a first degree felony, was around December 1, 2015, and the lesser charge, a second degree felony, around March 8, 2016.

The day after the second incident, CCSO deputies responded to Mountain Valley Middle School in Canyon Lake, where a school counselor reported that a girl, then 12, had told stories about her relationship with the boyfriend of his mother, dating back to the age of 11 in 2013. .

The arrest affidavit said that in interviews with the school counselor, counselors and investigators from the Children’s Advocacy Center, the alleged victim said he had performed oral sex on Hernandez on several occasions – dating back to when the family lived in Iowa and had sex with him at a Houston-area hotel. She said Hernandez gave her an iPad, iPhone and other items as a reward.

Hernandez was arrested on the second sexual assault charge on April 24, 2016 and arrested after the indictment on the aggravated charge on October 10, 2016. He was released from Comal County Jail the following day after have filed $50,000 or each charge.

Sexual assault of a child under 14 is a first degree felony punishable by 5 to 99 years in prison to life and a fine of up to $20,000.

However, due to Hernandez’s conviction on similar charges in 2011, prosecutors are seeking an enhancement that would sentence him to mandatory life imprisonment.

A handful of background witnesses testified on Tuesday. Bascon ordered jurors and litigants to return at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

CARLTON — A Scanlon man was sentenced to life in prison for sexual assault and kidnapping after a jury found him guilty of the crimes last month.

Dennis Michael St. John Jr. received the sentence from Judge Rebekka Stumme on Monday, February 28.

Stumme said the verdict reached by the jury and the evidence presented at the trial was proof that the victim had been tortured and that St. John had control over her to hold her against her will.

“I hope that when you are in prison you can review your life and take on your role here,” she said.

During the trial in January, St. John’s defense attorney JD Schmid argued that the defendant and the victim had consensual sex, which was the cause of the injuries the victim suffered.

Some of the injuries included bruises on one side of his body.

The evidence, testimony from the victim and others, and the verdict proved that the injuries were not due to consensual rough sex, Stumme said.

“Honestly, you’re going to be locked up for the rest of your life,” she said.

Dennis Michael St. John Jr.

Contribution / Carlton County Jail

St. John was sentenced to 98 months in prison for kidnapping and life in prison without the possibility of parole for first-degree criminal sexual conduct. The two sentences will be served concurrently.

Carlton County District Attorney Lauri Ketola also requested a $12,000 fine for St. John, which Stumme said was a minor issue for the court in light of the rest of the sentence.

Schmid argued that the fine was cruel and unfair because the defendant risked life in prison and qualified for a public defender due to his financial circumstances.

“Mr. St. John is going to jail for the rest of his life. It is virtually impossible to pay what is being asked,” Schmid said.

Stumme decided to make her own way when it came to the fine, raising it to $1,000 with an additional $85, as she had never seen that apply to someone going to prison for life. .

While she can’t ask St. John to apologize for what he was found guilty of, Stumme said he needs to make amends.

“The small amount of fines should go to the state and be used to help other victims of sexual assault,” she said.

Although he did not comment in court during the hearing, St. John gave a farewell statement to the prosecution after smacking his lips on his way out.

“I like getting a kiss when I get f——,” he said.

Ketola said defendants sometimes make comments as they leave a courtroom after a sentencing hearing.

“I want to thank the jury for looking at a really tough case and making the right decision,” she said. “They gave a fair verdict to make the community a little safer.”

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) – For Sheriff Tyree Jones, it was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Jones had just walked into a meeting with prison architects, when his prison administrator, Major Kathryn Bryan, played “I Shot the Sheriff” on his cell phone.

“It was very unprofessional and put me in a compromising position,” he said. “I needed to be separated from Kathryn Bryan and Kathryn Bryan needed to be separated from the county as a whole.”

Testimony continued Monday at a testimony hearing that could determine whether the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond will be taken over by the federal government.

Monday marked the start of the third week of arguments and the first time the court heard from the sheriff.

Jones, who took office in December, spoke about everything from county plans to tackle the prison consent decree, to addressing current conditions at the RDC and increasing staffing.

He went into detail about his proposal to raise detention officer salaries and implement a phased plan to increase officer pay based on years of service. He also discussed county plans to build a new jail.

Much of his testimony, however, focused on Bryan and the court-appointed monitors.

The sheriff said Bryan often worked to “diminish my authority and administration” and said controllers were biased. He said a monitor, David Parrish, ordered him to do something illegal when he was captain of investigations.

A team of monitors has been put in place to oversee the county’s implementation of its 2016 Jail Consent Decree and 2020 Stipulated Ordinance.

The direction given to Jones was unclear.

The case was heard before U.S. District Court Judge Carlton Reeves.

Reeves said he hadn’t heard that the monitors were biased or that Jones was ordered to do anything illegal. He asked if Jones had reported this to the court. The sheriff said he reported to his superior at the time, the late Sheriff Lee Vance.

As for the prison administrator, Jones said Bryan would not brief meetings with prison guards or court officials and was often insubordinate to him.

Meanwhile, he said Bryan was using his position in prison to secure a federal post once RDC went into federal receivership.

“The culture in detention services is that she would be the receiver and also provide jobs for some (other) people,” he said.

Jones mentioned an email exchange between Byran and Priscilla Dawson, the sheriff’s department’s quality assurance coordinator, saying Byran would be a likely candidate for the “compliance officer” position.

The Quality Assurance Coordinator is a civilian position within the department also responsible for ensuring the county meets the executive order mandates.

Jones said the correspondence reflected “the fact that (prison management) was more interested in putting the prison into receivership than in meeting the needs of my administration.”

Prison Administrator Kathryn Bryan(WLBT)

Jones told the court that Bryan kept him in the dark at several meetings involving the prison and did not inform him of when Reeves was scheduled to visit.

He found out from another source that Reeves was visiting the prison and traveled to Raymond to meet him.

The sheriff was also unaware of a meeting in late January between court-appointed monitors and the architectural firm working on plans for a new jail.

“I didn’t know anything about it. The only reason I found out was because (County Administrator) Kenny Wayne Jones called me and asked why I wasn’t there. I dropped what I was doing and drove there,” he said.

He said about 20 people were at the rally. When he sat down, Bryan started playing “I Shot the Sheriff” on his smartphone.

“I found it very disturbing,” he said.

A few days later, on January 31, Jones made Bryan’s earlier resignation effective immediately.

She submitted her first letter of resignation on Nov. 10, in part to wake the county up to jail issues, she told the court earlier.

Bryan joined the county in June after being recommended for the position by forensic monitors.

Monitors have been put in place by the court to oversee the implementation of the consent decree at the county jail.

Hinds County entered into an executive order in 2016 to address unconstitutional conditions at the detention center. The monitors were to serve as the eyes and ears of the court and provide technical assistance to the county when needed.

Jones said he initially had high hopes for Bryan and met with her and Supervisory Board Chairman Credell Calhoun shortly after her election to discuss her role in his administration.

“I made it clear that I depended on his experience and expertise … to help me move the decree forward,” he said. “I called him my ‘field training officer’.”

The sheriff said he made several changes before he was sworn in to make Bryan’s job easier, including changing the chain of command structure so that Bryan reports directly to him, rather than through others.

“It was more appropriate with the consent decree itself to have the administrator report directly to the sheriff,” he said.

Jones was sworn in on December 3, 2021 in a special ceremony at Hinds County Circuit Court.

Jones said he also honored Bryan’s request to appoint several people to command positions within the prison.

“I asked her what she needed, and it was promoted staff – captains, lieutenants,” he said. “I told the undersheriff we needed to promote these people and it happened that day.”

The sheriff told the court he was also working on other plans, including one to increase starting salaries for new detention officers and to create a ‘phased plan’, which would increase officers’ salaries based on years. on duty.

Even with those changes, Jones said Bryan was often insubordinate, even refusing to attend a meeting with him to discuss releasing COVID-19 numbers.

Jones had appointed an employee to provide COVID numbers to the Mississippi State Department of Health.

He told the court that Bryan had relieved this employee of those duties and that he wanted to meet with her to discuss it.

“She called me back and said ‘I wasn’t going to attend,’ because she didn’t like the way I handled meetings with subordinates,” Jones recalled.

Jones also mentioned other concerns, such as Bryan refusing to use his county phone and email to conduct county business.

He said that on at least two occasions, Bryan also refused to provide federally mandated services to inmate sexual assault victims, and that she repeatedly tendered her resignation.

Federal attorneys say the county failed to implement a sexual assault program, and at least four PREAs (Prison Rape Elimination Act) went uninvestigated appropriate while the county PREA coordinator was on leave.

When the coordinator is on the spot, “her authority is limited by the lack of access to the investigations of the internal affairs service”.

Bryan was in jail when the coordinator was on leave.

Jones said Bryan did not act because he was unfamiliar with the county’s PREA policy. However, he said the policy was implemented under the late Sheriff Lee Vance and approved by the DOJ.

“I sent the policy to Bryan to confirm the policy and she acknowledged that it was the policy from which we applied,” he said.

Bryan originally tendered his resignation to Acting Sheriff Marshand Crisler on Nov. 10, saying the resignation would be effective in February.

Bryan told Jones that the resignation was still in effect and that she wanted to use this threat to resign as “leverage to get some of the things she needed.”

When Jones fired her on Jan. 31, Bryan said she rescinded that resignation.

“I said to him, ‘I’m the sheriff. If you cancel it, you have to cancel it with me,” Jones said. “I never received anything in writing.”

A receivership would mean the county would lose control of the jail and could be forced to staff and set up facilities based on warrants issued by a receiver. County officials say a takeover would have a significant impact on the sheriff’s department budget.
