When former mayor of Hubbard, Ohio, Richard Keenan, confessed to raping a four-year-old and plead guilty to dozens of sex related charges the onerous burden of court proceedings on the young victim and her family was lightened. But his family seems to have forgotten who the victim is as they lash out at the media as if they are somehow in charge.
When the former Ohio Mayor, with ties to the Elite Washington D.C. pedophile ring, plead guilty to multiple counts of child sex crimes, it was the start of President Trump’s vow to take down the illegal sex ring practices of our elected officials.
Democrat, Richard Keenan, confessed to dozens of sexual crimes including charges of rape, attempted rape, and gross sexual imposition and agreed to a sentence of life in prison. According to court records, when Keenan was arrested, he claimed that the 4-year-old girl “initiated it”, telling police, “she came on to me.”
That all ended with his confessions. When Keenan’s wife confronted him about the allegations, he responded, “I did it.” Keenan also confessed to the allegations to his pastor, a social worker and his brother and sister-in-law, according to documents filed by the assistant prosecutor.
Keenan admitted himself into a psychiatric facility after the admissions because he said he was feeling suicidal. Filings obtained by the Youngstown Vindicator go into extensive detail about his purported admissions during group discussions at the psychiatric ward.
Its a good thing he confessed and agreed to a life sentence with the eligibility of parole after ten years.
“It gives the victim some closure. Obviously, keeps this young child from having to testify and I think it’s a good result given all the facts and circumstances,” said Assistant Prosecutor Gabe Wildman. “Not bringing her in here to have to testify in the small courtroom with this man in there as well.”
Yes, that was good of him, it avoided a lot of unnecessary pain and heartache for the victim and her family, but it doesn’t exonerate him from his atrocities, nor does it give his family the right to tell the media what they can and cannot show the public. Denouncing the media’s coverage of his crime and demanding their rights as they lashed out at reporters after the hearing and tried to block him from the camera’s view. What are they thinking?
Of course it was rough on Keenan’s family, of course they are going to have to deal with this for the rest of their lives. But they seem to have forgotten someone, a little child who’s life he has scarred, and a family that will forever be altered in a way that no family should have to deal with — ever.
The conviction of Keenan is a real victory in the destruction of Pedogate, with officials claiming that the first high-ranking Democrat to plead guilty in court, with connections to the D.C. pedophile ring, will “sing like a bird” in the hope of having his life sentence reduced.
