Police Looking for Additional Victims of Washington Man

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department is looking for victims to come forward following new sex crime charges against a Washington man. According to Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney Bob Parks, 41 year old Sean Geisert was charged with two separate statutory sodomy and child molestation charges between 2009 and 2013. Parks dismissed the original charges when a new victim came forward. The second indictment comes from a forcible rape charge against an adult back in June of 1996. Parks says Giesert will be arraigned in circuit court, at which point he will enter a plea or go to trial. Any additional victims or anyone with information is asked to contact the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department at 636-583-2560.

Thomas Jefferson, proponent of the Bill of Rights, could never have conceived just how many venues there are today for First-Amendment protected speech.

What he also could not have conceived is how this phenomenon of pervasive media has actually stymied, not enhanced, the free speech expression of presidential candidates.
