Highland Heights, KY -- A university professor who was forced to resign after leading a group of pro-abortion students in vandalizing a pro-life display has attacked pro-life advocates in a private email to the students involved. The email also encourages the students to "make it hard" for police investigating the vandalism to find them. News of the email is surfacing just hours after Northern Kentucky University professor Dr. Sally Jacobson issued an apology for her actions.
Jacobson apologized Tuesday evening in an interview with a local television station, but told the NKU student newspaper she will no longer grant interviews on the advice of her attorney.
Meanwhile, Jacobson emailed the pro-abortion students involved in the vandalism and urged them to obtain attorneys and to resist being charged by police in the matter. She worries and charges will aid the pro-life movement.
"If you are named, my advice is to get your attorney to plead you down to a misdemeanor," she wrote, according to The Northerner student paper. "The well-funded Right to Life groups that are pushing for this need felony convictions, I believe, in order to file civil suits for damages."
Jacobson also told the students about the current investigation the NKU police department id conducting, even encouraging the pro-abortion students to make it difficult for police to locate them.
"In the meantime, the campus police continue their investigation," she said. "If you have not yet been interrogated, you do not have to talk to them without an attorney. You can make it hard to find you. Again, I am so sorry."
Jacobson and the students involved could face as much as a Class D felony for their actions. Charges have not yet been filed against those involved in the destruction of the pro-life display but NKU Officer Rob Yelton told the student paper they are forthcoming.
"The [pro-life] group has indicated that they are willing to press charges," he said.
However, The Northerner reported that the bulk of the charges will be directed at Jacobson.
"At this time, we don't anticipate the students being charged," Lt. Col. Jeffrey Martin said. "They were intimidated by an authority figure into believing that this was not a criminal act."
Commonwealth Attorney Jack Porter, the local prosecutor, will make the final decision on the charges, and the officers indicated they thought he would grant the students immunity but charge Jacobson for her part in the vandalism.
Jacobson clearly hopes this is the case, according to the paper, as she wrote the students that she wants to help them avoid prosecution.
"I want to do everything I can to keep any of you from being specifically named," she said. "And I am very sorry I got you involved in this."
Jacobson, whose classes have been given to other professors to complete for the semester, also warned the pro-abortion students to stay away from her office on campus.
Well, it certainly won't help the baby killing crowd that's for sure.
Ha Ha! You lost your job (I wonder if she's getting her retirement benefits still?)
Doesn't matter what you think anymore - you lost your job. Now why don't you go to place that celebrates Abortion like China?
So now she is engaging in obstruction of justice...
Good thing she isn't teaching law.
Gee, ya think the police will subpoena her email account to see who she sent this out to? What a dope. These people never grow up. Ever..
So as usual, the left-wing nut job apologizing is not really apologizing, just trying to cover her sorry butt. They need to get that email....sounds like obstruction of justice or interfering with an investigation. Also sounds like an idiot.
Once she's convicted, she'll turn martyr, start a speaking tour, and get rich.
No kidding - LOL!
A candidate for retroactive abortion.
Good thing she isn't teaching law.
No kidding. Maybe she'd like to explain how O.J. got nailed in civil court even though he didn't receive a felony conviction...
So she emails them and the email surfaces on the net. The names are attached to the email. Perfect way for the cops to get a list of names. Thanks for the help, teach.
If she wanted the students to be given immunity from the charges, then she would not be advising them to avoid the police.
They will obviously only be given immunity under one condition: that they testify against Jacobson.
She has a vested interest in them not being given immunity and in them not cooperating, as she has abundantly demonstrated.
She must have just sent it out to a class list and one of them forwarded on that wasn't involved in the incident.
Seems to me that Email must violate one or two laws all by itself. Obstructing an investigation? Conspiracy?
What a moron and drama queen.
Hmmm ~ so the old bat's unaware that instructing other people how to evade or break the law is usually a criminal offense.
She just keeps digging that hole deeper and deeper.
So she's not sorry she did it, she's just sorry she got caught.
I don't get this position. They were college age students, not minors. Seems like selective use of the law to me.
I certainly wouldn't charge them - assuming they were willing to cooperate in the case against their nutty professor.
I can't cite a source (could have been from Rush), but I believe she is being allowed to retire and will collect all retirement benefits.
She did not resign, simply went on terminal leave pending retirement.
Anyone, please correct me if I'm wrong.
"urged them to obtain attorneys and to resist being charged by police "
What does she want them to do, tell the police they refuse to accept the charges?
One point that has become clouded in the reporting of this is whether she is being allowed to retire as originally reported or whether she has resigned her post before her retirement. Next, what effect, if any, will this have on her pension?
She deserves to have her tenure and her pension stripped.
Does this sound like an apology?
The ex-professor said: "'Any violence perpetrated against that silly display was minor compared to how I felt when I saw it.'"
As with most members of the Far Left, she simply doesn't "get it"!
Her "violence" was not against the "silly display." It was against the principles and ideas of liberty embedded in our Constitution and its First Amendment.
She views "how I felt" when she "saw" crosses placed there by other citizens commemorating the untimely deaths of babies as a greater "violence" than her leading students in an act which trashed a most basic concept of our Constitution.
No apology here: just a defiant attempt to avoid justice.
She probably just read it on DU and passed it along without really thinking about it.
"You can make it hard to find you"
Isn't this obstruction of justice?
Frankly I think my picture of her is more appealing.
That Prof is going to get an education on how the Justice system works.
Can't she be charged under RICO.
Promoting baby killing and destroying crosses displays the madness mind of this prof kook....So much for the 'liberal' all-inclusive ideas of the university setting. This insecure liberal witch rejects the free speech of others...
she should be prosecuted for destroying property.
lol. Closeup vs. long shot!
"Another photo of the petite flower
doing her worst:"
Hey..its Humpty Dumpty's girlfriend......ahahahahaha..
I certainly hope so.
Someone needs a hug.
That was the first thing that popped into my mind, but IANAL. I wonder if one of our FReeper legal eagles could give an opinion?
And she is also STUPID! She emails students...that she is supposedly trying to "protect"..and implicates them. She basically "outs" them...not that they will be charged. That sounds doubtful. But she should have been fired for just being stupid.
I wonder if he'd say the same thing if they had torn down gay rainbow flags.
Wouldn't that be delicious. Now that Joe Scheidler's been cleared of those bogus charges, let's arraign someone worthy of facing that kind of prosecution.
"she said. "If you have not yet been interrogated, you do not have to talk to them without an attorney. You can make it hard to find you." Jacobsen to pro-abort students
Idiot....after outing them via e mails now you encourage them to avoid the authorities ...you foolish blinded donut loving weeeeeeetch.......
Maybe so......quite very possible...
Advising her co-conspirators how to avoid prosecution and game the system... Why she's acting like some kind of Racketeer (that's it!)... Like some Racketeer with Influence over a Corrupt Organization...
