Meantime former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleaders suing -- website reporting on her alleged.
-- -- North Carolina teacher escaped prosecution when she marries a seventeen year old boy she apparently had sex with -- fifteen -- now.
Mister -- you have this cheerleader.
-- She's going to be on your program Saturday night.
Saturday night 10 o'clock eastern time she's 27 years old and when she sued the web site really sleazy website called the dirty dot -- it seem like a good idea.
Because the debt the defamatory.
Posts about her were one that he has Bengals cheerleader.
Ben gal she slept with every one of the players on the team.
And her husband slept with fifty other girls and gave her two different STD citizen -- they put on a website the telephones why they even.
Cared about her if they were -- -- the dirty dot com is like it's like a -- market version of TMZ they've they -- as we would have involved in a criminal case right -- dad later that came -- -- -- asked that night like that so here she's you know she's been slandered by the dirty dot com.
I you know so she definitely has the elements it's it's false she did not sleep -- all the -- it was published she had a good case going -- guess what.
She also works part time as a schoolteacher.
-- you -- she did.
After the defamatory posts were made she -- that -- with a seventeen year old student.
All right so now comes the third element.
It's it's false it's published it has the course harm.
So what harm is caused.
The defense in the case alleged.
When I hear you or your sleeping with a seventeen year old student -- argue our slot.
Maybe you didn't sleep at all the Bengals and that you are that's -- -- -- -- -- come to a verdict did the jury today was talking a mistrial was declared by the federal judge today unions so the I believe the jury struggled with that last element I believe the jury wanted.
To find the web site.
Guilty of defamation.
But the fact that they had the bad behavior you live by the woman 47 year old teacher in the -- will -- be -- -- they gonna go.
You know she's exhausted a lot of money it's really up to the attorneys I can't imagine she can afford to process what -- they don't know if they're doing an outside agency anyway you know I don't know how much money the website hasn't even if -- -- It's -- thoughts -- not your strategy -- -- how much money could you get out of these mile long last they are tomorrow on the show.
North Carolina another teacher all right female 42 -- -- -- shipment right she allegedly sleeps with a fifteen year old student.
Correct -- the fifteen year old student so testifies to the police all right.
Then she marries the -- that.
So he can't testify against here's the way this she is married at the time the 42 year old teacher is married at the time he has -- there with the fifteen year old.
All right now she -- arrested the husband divorces her.
Five or six days later she marries the child who's now seventy years old the kids' parents.
At least his mom a custodial parent.
Gives permission for the seventeen year old to marry the teacher now there's something called spousal privilege what is spousal privilege here dot can't testify against the patient -- -- against the penitent except with the uncertainty.
And a husband or wife cannot be compelled to give testimony against their -- so now she has married.
The child that you strongly to -- seventy he's now seventeen and so the child I cannot be compelled to give testimony so there is no case she pled guilty to resisting arrest.
And that's over also.
Unbelievable is that you know you think American -- fall apart I might be.
Try to nor -- we broke last night we did get the 911 call to set it up real quick -- -- wanna get -- opinion on it.
To report is for the Virginian pilot driving in a neighborhood they stop at a light.
-- was rocket the car guide itself forced her to confront the rock thrower he's jumped by about five people about thirty people surrounded there watching.
They both -- -- injured they go to the hospital.
Upon police do absolutely nothing they file a complaint against the north for police to two victims.
And 117 year old gets probation so nothing really happened.
Here is a little bit of the 911 call by -- -- go.
Tell -- what only -- by Hamilton are.
-- -- -- -- -- I would have been the big guys but bill but I got it called little black -- -- -- -- not -- -- guy.
Okay so even today the media -- for the Virginia pilot did report -- They report on the fact of the I want without.
I think you know what do you think's going on -- I think you are absolutely right it is is hard is it is for me to cop to that I think you're absolutely right if this were two black young people out on a date in a mob of angry whites or whites who were -- -- hell bent on stealing their property or vandalizing their vehicle.
Had attacked them every newspaper in the country would have gone for I am perplexed why the Virginian pilot a long established locally owned newspaper has chosen when two of its own reporters were -- to ignore the story now I understand they may be in in -- kind of I don't -- kind of match -- view.
Now they don't want to admit that you are right and now it's a big you don't have admitted -- right but what I you can still read what they -- do in his wife initially they ignored the story how could they not -- the story and I can only surmise.
That they did not report the story because they did not want to exacerbate.
Racial tensions that's -- got a community that's -- did everything that their job but you're asking and I'm trying to give you why you'd best say because I am baffled otherwise.
I'm similarly baffled by the fact that the two reporters have chosen not to press the case they don't know what they say they are -- president against the cops that's still in play.
