August 31, 2012: Shocking and Disturbing information in the UNSEALED records come to light:
August 28, 2012
As the title of this blog stated in July 2012, I had a belief that there was favoritism… Today another Judge seems to agree that at the very least the manner in which this case was handled and the terms of the “PLEA BARGAIN” were abhorrent….
See the Article from the Courier Journal Newspaper:

Contempt charges against Savannah have been dropped . Still no reason known why the 2 were not charged as adults as most people without rich parents would have been? Why the Prosecutor did not recuse himself from the case? Will The District Attorney Assign the case to a new Prosecutor who will charge them as adults? If the Department of justice will Investigate this matter? If the Judge will be disciplined by the State Judicial Committee? Why they will not be on the sex offenders registry as most others would be? Or why the schools did not expel the boys? You can read the comments for more information submitted by outside interested people. Here is the news paper link concerning the dismissal of the Contempt Charges:
UPDATE: (at the bottom is the photo of the prosecutor and his name as I have been told by several people who know much more than I do)

This story stinks of what has become typical in Kentucky… collusion.. and the Judge appears to be part of it by doing what she did. I would guess that is a political or personal favor to one or both of the parents of these sexual predators … The prosecutors office should be ashamed they let this happen and the judge should be forced off the bench for abuse of power under the Judicial Code of Conduct and for knowingly and willfully violating this girls first amendment rights. And Judges wonder why people have so little respect for them anymore…. THIS is why!!!
And Where is the Justice Department in this matter… THEY should be investigating as well… I SMELL POLITICS at its worst!
I HAVE BEEN GIVEN THIS NEW UPDATE ON THE ATTACKERS: Alleged attackers are Will Frey III and Austin Zehnder as reported by http://rantsthoughtsmerde.com !
A Kentucky girl who was sexually assaulted could face contempt of court charges after she tweeted the names of her juvenile attackers.
Savannah Dietrich, the 17-year-old victim, was frustrated by a plea deal reached late last month by the two boys who assaulted her, and took to Twitter to expose them–violating a court order to keep their names confidential.
“There you go, lock me up,” Dietrich tweeted after naming the perpetrators. “I’m not protecting anyone that made my life a living Hell.” Her Twitter account has since been closed.
Attorneys for the attackers asked a Jefferson District Court judge to hold Dietrich in contempt for lashing out on Twitter. She could face up to 180 days in jail and a $500 fine if convicted. The boys have yet to be sentenced for the August 2011 attack.
“So many of my rights have been taken away by these boys,” Dietrich told Louisville’s Courier-Journal. “I’m at the point, that if I have to go to jail for my rights, I will do it. If they really feel it’s necessary to throw me in jail for talking about what happened to me as opposed to throwing these boys in jail for what they did to me, then I don’t understand justice.”
Dietrich was assaulted by the pair after passing out at a party. They later shared photos of the assault with friends.
“For months, I cried myself to sleep,” Dietrich said. “I couldn’t go out in public places.”
On June 26, the boys pleaded guilty to first-degree sexual abuse and misdemeanor voyeurism. Terms of their plea agreement were not released.
“They got off very easy,” Dietrich, who says she was unaware of the plea agreement before it was announced in court, said in her interview with the newspaper.
“They said I can’t talk about it or I’ll be locked up,” Dietrich tweeted after hearing, according to the paper. “So I’m waiting for them to read this and lock me up.”
“[Protecting rapists] is more important than getting justice for the victim in Louisville,” she added.
A hearing for the contempt of court charge is scheduled for July 30. Attorneys for Dietrich want it open to the media, while the boys lawyers want it closed.
Both the Gannett-owned Courier-Journal and Dietrich’s attorneys “have filed motions to open the proceedings, arguing she has a First Amendment right to speak about what happened in her case,” the newspaper said.
An online petition asking the judge to throw out the charges against Dietrich, launched Saturday, has already accumulated hundreds of signatures.
“[She] should not be legally barred from talking about what happened to her,” Gregg Leslie, executive director of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, told the Associated Press. “That’s a wide-ranging restraint on speech.”
OHH How Sweet… Someone sent me the link to the Blue Grass bats Team Photos with the following information in it… THESE are the actual photos of these two confessed rapists
Apparently the two males whose pictures were supposed to be here as well as on the Blue Grass Bats Web page are now gone from existence….I REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHY THEY WERE NOT KICKED OFF THE TEAM WHEN THEY PLEAD GUILTY OR EVEN WHEN THEY WERE ARRESTED… from the TEAM Site their pictures are gone as well as their names… an on this site their pictures have mysteriously disappeared…. HOWEVER if you read some the Last few comments or so a person or two has indicated she has them on her Facebook as others have also copied and downloaded the photos of these ”people” I am not positive but if they convicted as juveniles then it should have gone to Juvi Court.. but this was in fill District Court meaning they are convicted now as ADULTS???? So why are they not on the sex offender registry in Kentucky.. and why are their faces allowed to be used???
Here is a link to another place to view pictures as well:
I have posted pictures of these scumbags on my FB page, I’m letting more and more people know about this.
.. Gee I wonder Mitch McConnell that had that info taken down… well the fight for justice is not over yet!!!
#22 Will Frey. Trinity Midfield. Will is a 2nd year Bat and scored a hat trick at the 2010 Gait Cup. He is a strong athlete that loves challenges. He does not intimidate easily. His signature move the French Frey is a combination of face dodge and split dodge. He can score in any position. Will believes he resembles a Wildabeast, because he is a Wildabeast. Will is a Junior and would like to attend Centre, Denver, or Jacksonville to play lacrosse. When he is on the field he whispers in his opponent’s ear “Fear the BAT.” The last book he read was “Catcher in the Rye.” Will is known as “KING FRY” on the field.
#1 Austin Zehnder “the Zen master”. He is 6’1 and considers himself a “groundball vacuum cleaner.” A Trinity Attack, Austin hopes to attend college outside of Kentucky. Austin enjoys meditating, eating pizza, and waxing his lax stick in his free time. Hoping to become a doctor he feels he surgically debilitates his opponents, as they feel he has removed certain organs without anesthesia.2nd year BAT.
OH I FORGOT this is Mitch McConnell’s State of Kentucky.. NOW I UNDERSTAND THE CORRUPTION
Jefferson District Court
Hon. Deana “Dee” McDonald
Undergraduate: Western Kentucky University, B.S., 1974
Graduate and/or Law School: University of Louisville, School of Law, 1994, Night Division
Legal Experience: I have over thirty (30) years of Jefferson County courtroom experience. I began as a social worker, working with abused/neglected and troubled youth and was in court almost daily advocating for their needs. I put myself through law school at night and began my legal career as a criminal defense attorney. I served as Assistant Counsel for the Cabinet for Health and Family Services providing legal support for the workers and litigating Termination of Parental Rights cases to free committed children for adoption. I served as a prosecutor in the Jefferson County Attorney’s Office in the Domestic Violence Unit, the Felony/Misdemeanor, Warrant, Juvenile and Non-Support dockets, as well as all ten (10) of the Family Courts.
With over 30 years of courtroom experience I have the expertise and demonstrated ability to serve as District Judge. The quality and depth of my experience has been evidenced by the fact that I have received every single endorsement made in this race, including that of Citizens For Better Judges. In addition, the local attorney’s responding to the LBA’s Judicial Poll, rated me 3 to 1 over my opponent in the “Highly Qualified” category.
A career of public service in the court system has given me a wealth of experience. As a prosecutor, I took an oath to seek the truth and administer justice fairly and that required me to prosecute some cases and recommend the dismissal of others. My experience enabled me to know the difference. I bring over thirty years of experience with which to serve the people of this community.
I this really was the man who was the prosecutor of these boys then you should know him ….. Paul Richwalsky, chief prosecutor in the juvenile court division of the county attorney’s office, felt one officer was blowing us off in two serious cases. and was against a cop who did not show up to court on his day off ….
Seems to be that kids who are not white and are from poor families are dangerous, but those that rape our daughters are just boys being boys …
I Have been told he has affiliations with TRINITY … but I have not confirmed that .. if there was any connection no matter how remote I believe there was a conflict of interest in the PLEA agreement and the prosecution as a JUVENILE offender status these boys received. IN most any other case this offence from 16 years and up would be considered by most courts in the country to be ADULT Crimes… from what I have heard OTHER similar crimes in this jurisdiction were tried as adults… so why the special favor for these 2 boys… what made them so special… and are they still eligible to be tried by the United States Federal Court for Distribution of Child Pornography… If I were the lawyers for Savannah I would be pushing for Adults trials and if not then federal prosecution as there is no parole with the federal government convictions.
SOMETHING STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN IN JEFFERSON COUNTRY COURTS IN THIS CASE .. HAS SAVANNAH BEEN DEPRIVED OF HER CIVIL RIGHTS TO JUSTICE??
