No Charges for Minn. Lawmaker in Rest Stop Incident
KSTP.com (ABC Minneapolis) ^ | 08/16/2012 | Scott Theisen

Posted on 08/16/2012 9:42:42 PM PDT by voteNRA

State Rep. Kerry Gauthier won't be charged in an incident involving a 17-year-old boy at a freeway rest stop in Duluth last month, the Duluth News Tribune reported Thursday.

...(snip)...

Democratic House Minority Leader Paul Thissen said in a statement that Gauthier was hospitalized for "an unknown health issue."

...(snip)...

Gauthier was elected in 2010 with 73 percent of the vote. Republican Travis Silvers is challenging him this year, vowing in a campaign video to make "God, family, marriage" a priority.

Oops, a dem caught with a live boy in a park.

He represents the Duluth area which suffered major flooding earlier and is undergoing a rebuilding effort while their "honorable" representative's attentions are with a 17 year old boy he met on craig's list.

Of course there will be no charges, now he can sleep soundly while he recovers in his hospital bed.

Probably is a room mate of JJ who is also recovering from "unknown health issues / corruption" in a Minnesota hospital.

Yep, this story has been "developing" for a few days here.

Primary was Tuesday - truth comes out late Thursday evening.

Convenient?

You reckon that he can be “cured” from this health issue? Physically or mentally?

It wasn’t a park. It was a highway rest stop in a public restroom.

The guy’s a pedophile freak but it’s northshore Minnesota so it’s a-okay. I’ve mused about it a thousand times, but why do the freaks get to take over all of the beautiful places in this country?

It’s SOP these days.

No charges for politicians if they f**k up.

No charges for cops if they kill someone innocent.

No charges for bankers if they go to the casino and blow like a bazillion dollars and throw people out in the streets.

Rule of law. What a joke!

You're right, wcco reported the dirty occurred at a picnic table earlier - guess that sounded more "romantic" to them.

I don't care about any more details, I've heard enough already.

going for more "mind bleach" now

If you are a lender and you don’t use due diligence and vet your borrowers, then you are just as responsible.

I still believe in the jury box before the cartridge box.

But REAL juries. Where they are given ALL THE FACTS. Where they are able to VOTE THEIR CONSCIENCE. Where they don’t treat some homeless bum ANY DIFFERENT than they would treat some famous celebrity. Where the judge cannot order or threaten them in any way.

I always was a bit of a dreamer...

;-)

And when those things don't square, they nullify.

What we have now is not so much failure of the jury system, I mean it does happen, but there is a worse problem.

Basically prosecutorial negligence. It’s entirely up to some DA to decide to file charges or not.

He can (and DOES!!) let things slide when it comes to his buds. Or like in Holders case, his home boys.

And it is up to a judge to decide to empower a grand jury, giving him almost entire control of whether charges ever even get to the DA.

Under the original construct of law (common law) in this country, anybody could start a grand jury. I think there is still one or two states where it doesn’t take a judge to start one.

Indeed it's a dream, FRiend. :)

As dumbed down the average American citizen is, I honestly wonder if pleading your case to a judge or a panel of judges is better or worse than appearing before a jury of strangers that really aren't your peers.

"Faggotry prevails in Minnesota"

NO, it certainly does not.

We vote in November on Biblical Marriage

The homosexuals have confused "Minnesota Nice" with acceptance of their lifestyle. Tolerance of their existence does not equal approval of their Sin.

A majority of our fine State feels the same way - please reserve judgment

#17: Good one - “choking to death”.

How about he got his Barney Frank bitten off?

Got something in his eye?

Slipped on a bar of soap?

Forgot to open the bathroom stall door on the way out?

The 17-year-old was legal to consent and willingly and deliberately met this guy.

Without solicitation or an age-of-consent issue the DA has to ask if a prosecution on misdemeanor Indecent Conduct be worth the resources when the state lawmaker's arrest and reasons thereof will be news everywhere?

It seems unlikely the lawmaker's case was treated differently than any other similar case.

Not if Federal law, rules and regulations forbid you from using due diligence or vetting your borrowers before making the loans.
