Skip to comments.(Rochester NY) Mayor-Elect Warren Reveals Husbandís Criminal Record
Posted on 01/01/2014 6:59:31 AM PST by Third Person
Just hours before her swearing in as Rochesters first woman mayor, Lovely Warren released a statement regarding the criminal history of her husband, Timothy Granison, when he was a teenager.
Warren said her statement came in response to a question posed today by a reporter about her husbands past.
She said in 1997, when Granison was 17 years old, he was was involved in a situation instigated by other youth that resulted in an encounter with the criminal justice system.
Because of his age and the nature of the alleged offense, he was adjudicated a youthful offender, Warren said.
The file is sealed, and he does not have a criminal record. Tim learned a great deal from the experience, and is now a loving husband, father and contributing member of our community.
What happened with Tim is illustrative of what happens to too many young people in our community who are growing up in very difficult circumstances and get caught up in things that they should not.
Warren did not offer any additional details about the incident. Her statement referred questions to Christopher Thomas, an attorney who has been co-leading Warrens transition team. Thomas could not be immediately reached for comment.
UPDATE: The 1997 incident was reportedly an armed robbery of a jewelry store.
Warren said Granison, who now works for Catholic Charities Community Services and for United Parcel Service of America Inc., was able to turn his life around, and the couple hopes his story serves as an inspiration for other troubled youths in Rochester.
Lots of young people make mistakes the important thing is that as a community, we dont give up on them and help them find a better path, just as Tim did, the mayor-elect said.
I have been very open about the challenges that I have put behind me to bring me to this point; and neither Tim nor I will ever be less than honest about our life stories.
Why? because his story and my story are not out of the ordinary for young people growing up in Rochester today. And our message to our youth is that you dont have to end up where you start. We are proof positive that you can make changes. You can find a better way.
It is good he turned his life around, and also, this should in no way reflect upon her.
I like it the other guys instigated it.....
This woman has to be permanently warped——who names a new born baby “Lovely” and calls her that all her life?
She must have been teased and taunted during her growing up years....
He turned his life around?
Isn’t it amazing what the media can dig up when they want to?
here is a sealed record that they dug up. Much like Obama had a sealed record dug up when he was running for Senator.
Funny though they cannot dig up anything on our Muslim no Church going Marxist pResident.
“He turned his life around?”
He discovered that robbery is safer and legal if done from elected office. It’s only the stupid who do it with a gun. So, yes, he learned a great deal.
I can't wait to hear his rap "music."
And Community Service is not a job...
“He had to know someone...17 is not a baby...He drove the get away car.
And Community Service is not a job... “
I agree. One of the Kennedy cusins murdered the girl next door. He even talked about it. But it took several Kennedy deaths before he could be prosecuted and I think that was 20-30 years later. I believe he’s in jail.
But you don’t have to have a Kennedy in your pocket to get away with crimes. Even just having a family connection to the local Democratically elected sheriff works wonders on immunity or leniency. Without a recommendation from the sheriff in my county, the prosecutor never even sees the case.
How long before the media vermin return to the ‘if only Trayvon had not been shot that night, he would have turned his life around, maybe become pResident in a few years.’ I mean, little barry bastard boy was dealing drugs and turned his life around, right?
Years ago...They actually issued Sheriff Cards. You put it near your driver’s license so both were visible.
Question: So, why does the sealed file still exist then?
Answer: Deer in the headlights stare from liberal lawyers and judge with crickets chirping.
“Years ago...They actually issued Sheriff Cards. You put it near your drivers license so both were visible.”
I remember my Dad, a union official, giving the deputy his driver’s license with a folded bill under it. He was handed back the license without the bill and told to drive carefully. The deputy saluted.
It’s just gotten a little more sophisticated. (BTW, if you tried that today you’d probably be in trouble. But I actually say Mexican police pull over Americans and demand $50 cash or they’d “go to jail.” This was late 2009.)
In case he decided to become a Tea Party member.
What bothers me is that he has no criminal record...that takes "someone" to make that happen. Who was the DA in 1997 and who were the judges?
We would have known this months ago if she was a republican.

I left Rochester, New York, because HE still lived in the vicinity.
Here’s Lonsberry’s take on it, published today.
Gone from Rochester since 1978, and not ever regretting it. Best move I ever made.
What's not to
Wish I had left decades earlier, myself!
About the only good things I saw when I was there a few years ago were the High Falls and Dinosaur BBQ.
Just Lovely. Rochester is on a fast track to join Detroit.
“...and Dinosaur BBQ”
And that is owned by George Soros.
> The 1997 incident was reportedly an armed robbery of a jewelry store.
And who among us didn’t commit armed robbery at age 17? I mean really, c’mon! /s
Thanks Third Person.
I enjoy reading Lonsberry because many of his local topics remind me of why I left that armpit. Rochester is better than Florida? That’s funny. I never hear anyone wanting to retire to Rochester or anywhere in New York. Sounds like Rochester deserves you.
Now now you two. You don’t behave and I’ll send you to the Bullshead area for a week.
