Maryville teen allegedly raped by football player

And wasn't prosecuted (probably) because the rapist's family was politically connected. There's no excuse for at least statutory under the facts as presented. Also. dude should probably avoid saying rape-y things on social media if he's still within the statute of limitations.

Quote:
Here's a depressing story that will bring back memories of the Steubenville rape case. It begins with a 14-year-old drunk girl getting dumped on her porch by the high school football player who had just allegedly raped her, and it ends with her family being driven out of town by an unsupportive community.

A horrifying story out of Missouri: A mother was run out of a small town after her daughter blacked out at a party filled with older high school athletes and was left, with clear marks of rape, on the front lawn of her home in freezing weather.

The Kansas City Star details how the small town of Maryville turned against a newly-arrived family after 14-year-old Daisy Coleman reported that an older athlete had sex with her while another older male videotaped, after she was given an alcoholic drink at a party that left her barely able to stand. Her friend, a 13-year-old, was also made to have non-consensual sex.

After a thorough investigation by the local police however, clearly implicating 17-year-old Matthew Barnett in the sexual assault, charges were inexplicably dropped by the prosecuting attorney. Barnett, coincidentally, is the grandson of a prominent former Missouri state representative.

Star reporter Dugan Arnett writes,

Sexual assault cases can be difficult to build because of factors such as a lack of physical evidence or inconsistent statements by witnesses. But by the time his department had concluded its investigation, Sheriff Darren White felt confident the office had put together a case that would “absolutely” result in prosecutions.

“Within four hours, we had obtained a search warrant for the house and executed that,” White told The Star. “We had all of the suspects in custody and had audio/video confessions.

“I would defy the Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department to do what we did and get it wrapped up as nicely as we did in that amount of time.”

But no prosecutions ever came. The charges were dropped by the prosecuting attorney who didn't believe the evidence was strong enough. He dismissed any idea that political influence had anything to do with his decision.

In the meantime, the town had already begun to turn on the Coleman family. Threatening phone calls and online threats were directed at the family. Melinda Coleman had moved to the town with her four children after her husband, a physician, had died in a car accident. She was easily targeted by the community for being an outsider.
The parent of one of the teens at the Barnett house that night was the only one to comment briefly to The Star: “Our boys deserve an apology, and they haven’t gotten it yet.”

In a later interview, Rice [the prosecuting attorney] called it a case of “incorrigible teenagers” drinking alcohol and having sex. “They were doing what they wanted to do, and there weren’t any consequences. And it’s reprehensible. But is it criminal? No.”

Robert Sundell, who represented Barnett, echoed that sentiment: “Just because we don’t like the way teenagers act doesn’t necessarily make it a crime.”

After the charges were dropped, things just got worse for Melinda and Daisy Coleman. Daisy has struggled with depression and attempted suicide. Melinda had to move away from Maryville and back to the town she had lived in with her now-deceased husband. In April, the house in Maryville she still owned burned down under mysterious circumstances.

And Matthew Barnett, the young man accused by Coleman of raping her? He's attending the University of Central Missouri and apparently having a great time:

In a recent retweet, he expressed his views on women — and their desire for his sexual attentions — this way:

“If her name begins with A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z, she wants the D."

I'm so very very tired of arguing this point with other people. But how else will justice be served?

Prosecute the parents who allowed these minors to drink too.

End of story and if you don't agree, kindly piss off.
Wait. Are you saying that the parents should be prosecuted because their 17 year old son got drunk and raped a chick? Is that what you're trying to say?

Maryville, Mo., is just like Steubenville, Ohio.

That's what so many are saying, and if that doesn't concern the prosecutor's office of Nodaway County in the far northwest part of the state, then perhaps it doesn't know what has just begun, or fathom what is still to come.

Steubenville got thrown into international spotlight over the past year after members of the local high school football team sexually assaulted a drunken 16-year-old girl. It was a horrific crime made even worse by the gutter behavior of onlookers, which included crude jokes on social media, a cellphone filming of one of the acts and a complete lack of concern for the well being of the victim.

Yet in Steubenville, authorities not only charged two players, they handed the case over to the state's attorney general's office to run the prosecution. Both boys were convicted last March and are in the juvenile justice system to this day.

Even still, the city was brought to its knees by allegations of corruption, cover up and favoritism. Local bloggers printed wild, unproven allegations. The internet hacking group Anonymous tormented some locals and staged street protests that washed the city out. It focused pressure to make sure the case was pushed – and continues to be pushed – forward. It was devastating and divisive to Steubenville. Even locals freely repeated the most outlandish of rumors.

And, again, its worth repeating: the two defendants weren't just charged; they were convicted.

In Maryville, the main suspect, a one-time high profile local high school athlete, is accused of assaulting a drunk 14-year-old girl before dumping her passed out body on her front lawn in sub freezing weather. He isn't even standing trial; all his charges dropped earlier this year.

Like Steubenville?

No, what is likely to come for Maryville – fair or not, reasonable or not – is probably going to be far more intense.

Until the Kansas City Star published a lengthy story about the case on Sunday, the details of what happened on Jan. 8, 2012 weren't well known outside of this 12,000-person town about 100 miles north of KC.

The story went viral over the next 24 hours, attracting additional media attention, including national outlets such as the Associated Press and CNN, and the attention of Anonymous, which immediately began an action campaign against local officials. A street protest demanding justice is already scheduled for Tuesday morning.

You could call it the next battle in the fast changing way in which online groups have put significant pressure on communities, particularly in cases involving sexual assault and bullying.

"If Maryville won't defend these young girls, if the police are too cowardly or corrupt to do their jobs, if justice system has abandoned them, then we will have to stand for them," Anonymous said in a statement. "Mayor Jim Fall, your hands are dirty. Maryville, expect us."

According to the Star, on the winter night in question a then 14-year-old girl named Daisy Coleman, along with a 13-year-old girlfriend, convened at Coleman's house for a sleepover. They hung out in her bedroom watched movies, drank some stolen booze and texted with an older football player.

By 1 a.m. they snuck out, got picked up by two boys, Matthew Barnett and a friend, and returned to a small party at Barnett's home. They had to climb through a basement window to get in without his parents knowing. A few older boys were there, all popular, prominent athletes at Maryville High School.

It was then, according to court records and media accounts, Barnett, 17, handed Coleman a glass of clear liquid. She drank it and maintains that's about the last thing she remembers. What happened next isn't apparently of much dispute. Barnett and Coleman wound up in a bedroom and had sex. At one point a friend filmed part of it on an iPhone. In another room, the 13-year-old had sex with another 15-year-old boy even though she testified that she repeatedly said no.

Eventually the girls were driven back to the Coleman's. The 13-year-old, who was at least capable of walking, was sent into the house. The boys said they would wait with Coleman, who was incoherent and had been crying when she was carried to the car in the first place, until she sobered up. However, instead of waiting for her to sober up or getting her help, they dumped Daisy off on her front doorstep, shoeless and coatless in temperatures that dipped to 22 degrees. The guys left.

At about 5 a.m., Coleman's mother, Melissa, heard a scratching noise at the front door. She opened it to find a shocking sight: her daughter lying there, having crawled up to knock, her hair frozen, her feet turned red. Melissa is a veterinarian, so she brought her confused daughter in and drew a cool bath to warm her up, worried about potential frostbite. As she undressed Daisy she noticed marks on her genitalia.

"Immediately," Melissa Coleman told the Kansas City Star, "I knew what happened."

There was a call to 911, then a trip for both girls to the local hospital, where vaginal tears were found and Daisy's blood alcohol level, even at 9 a.m. – seven hours after drinking that clear liquid in the basement – was 0.13.

Nodaway County Sherriff deputies arrived soon after and went to work. The story was obvious. The boys were brought in immediately to talk and later put in custody. A search warrant of the Barnett house was executed, and blankets, underwear, booze and other items were seized. Cell phones were culled. It was quick and seemingly thorough.

Sherriff Darren White has repeatedly told the media he was certain there would be prosecutions.

"I was actually pretty happy with it because we had what I considered to be a very serious crime and within a matter of a few hours, we had warrants for their arrest and they'd been arrested," White told KCUR-TV out of Kansas City last summer. "… Did a crime occur? Hell yes, it occurred. Was it a horrible crime? Yes, it was a horrible crime. And did these boys need to be punished for it? Absolutely."

Only, it didn't turn out that way.

The then 15-year-old boy who had sex with the then 13-year-old girl was punished, via the judicial system, which keeps all names private.

Barnett was charged as an adult for sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child. He never denied having sex with Daisy Coleman or that he knew she had been drinking. He just said it was consensual. In Missouri, statutory rape is defined as either having sex with someone under 14 or if a person is 21 and the victim is less than 17 years of age. Neither distinction applies here, an important legal bullet dodged.

The case would largely hinge on whether Coleman was incapacitated by alcohol and thus incapable of consent.

Meanwhile, then 17-year-old friend Jordan Zech was charged as an adult with the sexual exploitation of a minor for videotaping part of the encounter on his iPhone. The video was later deleted and unrecoverable.

(While Yahoo generally doesn't release the names of sexual assault victims, the Coleman family, including Daisy, now 16, have given the media consent to do so in an effort to publicize the case and have given multiple on camera interviews.)

The charges brought little relief. The Coleman children, who include Daisy and two siblings, say they were harassed at school and online. The family was new to Maryville, having moved from Albany, about 40 miles to the east, after the death of their father in an automobile accident.

The boys involved, including the Barnett's, are prominent long-time residents in a community where almost everyone knows everyone. Many locals rallied around Barnett, who was facing a potentially long prison sentence.

Soon Melissa Coleman was fired from her job, which she believes was related to the alleged assault. Daisy went into depression, including, the family said, multiple failed suicide attempts. When the Colemans moved back to Albany seeking a fresh start, the old home they owned and sat unoccupied in Maryville suspiciously burnt to the ground.

It was something out of Hollywood.

Making matters more difficult, the charges against Zech and Barnett were dropped by local prosecutor, Robert Rice.

Melissa Coleman said she's never gotten an explanation why. Rice has said little, although he did disclose to the Kansas City Star that there wasn't enough evidence.

"There wasn't any prosecuting attorney that could take that case to trial," Rice told the paper. "It had to be dismissed. And it was. … They were doing what they wanted to do, and there weren't any consequences. And it's reprehensible. But is it criminal? No."

The case may have drifted off into history if not for the Colemans pursuit of the media. Most notably, an extensive story by Dugan Arnett of the Star that blew it up.

The spotlight has zoomed immediately on the town and prosecutor Rice, who, if nothing else, has done a dreadful job explaining why he didn't at least take the case to a grand jury or hand it over to the state's attorney general's office. His defiance hasn't played well.

Instead, the narrative has been left to snowball across the internet.

The obvious and first reaction here is one of anger. A young girl taken advantage of, raped, discarded in the frost grass by callous older boys, who because of their athletic ability and family connections are protected by the powers that be in this small backwards town.

That may be a true version, although to make that immediate conclusion is to engage in stereotyping. It is to assume that in Maryville no one cares about sexual assault or young girls. It is to conclude that judgments have been blinded by loyalty to a local powerhouse high school football team. It is to presume the possibility of some political muscle – Barnett's grandfather is a former state representative –– trying to make this go away and a prosecutor bending to it.

Those are huge leaps to make here. At least at this point with what is currently known.

Yet these cases aren't necessarily about perspective and patience. Anonymous, for one, is demanding that the state's attorney general reopen the case, even if the AG says it doesn't have the legal power to step in and overrule a county prosecutor. It isn't just Anonymous that's confused though. No less than the lieutenant governor and a number of prominent state officials have asked for the same thing.

And consider Anonymous' statement calling for action, which declared that the city's mayor has "dirty hands." He clearly has no authority over the county sheriff, which conducted a seemingly swift and thorough investigation, or the county prosecutor.

He was listed by name anyway. He might as well get used to it.

It wasn't all that different in Steubenville, where much of the initial speculation about cover-ups has yet to pan out with actual fact. The police, by all current public accounts, did a proper job. Meanwhile, a state-convened special grand jury is still investigating pretty much all aspects of the night in question in an effort to alleviate concerns. It has delivered one indictment, a school official, although the details aren't likely to be made public until a pretrial hearing on Oct. 25.

Regardless, the damage was done.

In Maryville, it's just beginning. This is not all bad. While it has its negative aspects, online vigilantism does bring attention and a relentless force that can create action. There are reasonable questions here to be answered. How did the charges just get dropped? How could this not be enough to at least take in front of a grand jury? How could a girl who passed out not have been incapacitated?

Rice is refusing to talk to the media or make any public declarations beyond a prepared statement that answers virtually nothing. He says a state law prevents him from discussing a closed case.

He's making a huge mistake, however, if he thinks that is going to satisfy anyone.

"The article recently published in the Kansas City Star did not include all the facts as to what transpired in a 2012 criminal case," Rice said in the statement released Tuesday. "There was insufficient evidence to prove a criminal charge beyond a reasonable doubt. The State's witnesses refused to cooperate and invoked their 5th Amendment privilege to not testify.

“The personal attacks made against me are malicious, wrong, and never happened.

“Law enforcement authorities and I are prohibited from commenting on the facts of a closed criminal case.”

Perhaps they are, but Sherriff White keeps giving interviews. And conflicting reports remain over whether the Fifth Amendment rights were invoked. (Coleman told the Associated Press she didn't; her former attorney, bizarrely, says, she did.)

It's all enough to continue to spark the outrage, even if there should be an equal amount of confusion.

We're a long way from knowing exactly what happened that night in the Barnett basement, but the details are too powerful, the pain too obvious, the anger too pronounced for anyone to think it just fades off now.

Anonymous doesn't back down and whether that's a good thing or not, it's completely changed the game. This is a new day for these old cases, which, pretty much everyone would agree, in the past were too often swept under the rug.

Robert Rice thinks the personal attacks and insinuations of corruption against him are malicious, wrong and never happened.

He may be right. But they aren't going to stop. They have hardly even begun.

The entire community would be well served reopening that case and handing it over to someone in Columbia for fresh perspective and real answers. It's the only way to move on.

The scars are still deep in Steubenville, the resentment against the attacks are still real, the case and fallout still going, but even they knew early on to walk away and let outsiders handle the justice. Even Steubenville understood that.

BREAKING: Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder Calls for Grand Jury in Daisy Coleman Case
Posted on October 15, 2013 by Duane Lester


Just received this via email from the office of Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder:

Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder today released the following statement urging Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster and the Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice revisit a controversial alleged rape case in Nodaway County.

“Since Sunday I have read with growing dismay the media accounts of the Daisy Coleman case in Nodaway County. I make no claim to knowledge of all the facts. Still, facts revealed in exhaustive media reports, including the 4,000-word piece in the Kansas City Star, raise all kinds of questions that it is now clear won’t be put to rest. These questions will fester and taint the reputation of our state for delivering impartial justice to all.

“I am disappointed that the Attorney General would wash his hands of the matter through a brief statement by a spokesman. The appalling facts in the public record shock the conscience and cry out that responsible authorities must take another look. I call on Attorney General Koster and Prosecutor Rice to join me in asking that the Circuit Court convene a grand jury to review all the evidence, hear all witnesses, and issue a decision as to whether charges should ensue.

“I hope that responsible officials will join me in this call for a grand jury to make the final call on whether criminal charges should or should not be filed.”

Holy crap. This is going to be a mess.

The article above claims that Coleman may have invoked her 5th amendment rights at the time. I suppose this is possible and makes sense, she was probably ashamed and afraid, as most victims are. Sounds like the cops did their job. The reasons not to prosecute...who really knows. I agree that it seems unfathomable that it was just somebody making it go away, but it's not impossible.

Sounds like the cops did their job. The reasons not to prosecute...who really knows. I agree that it seems unfathomable that it was just somebody making it go away, but it's not impossible.
It sounds like it was the witnesses that invoked the 5th, not Coleman. So, basically, they were trying to turn the suspects against each other I guess? Maybe I'm interpreting that wrong.

Having never been to Maryville except driving through it I am interested in hearing about this divide and what the town is like.
