EDITOR'S NOTE: Those charged with crimes are presumed innocent, until or unless they are convicted in a court of law. In civil cases, lawsuits filed against specific defendants represent only the plaintiff's side of the dispute. Every effort is made by this newspaper to report the final disposition of each case. However, in the event that we fail to do so, a call to the New Era newsroom at 887-3232 will prompt a courthouse check and eventual publication of the outcome of the particular case.
