Investigate actions of Robert Rice, Sheriff Darrin White, and evidence used

17 year old Matthew Barnett was charged with sexual assault against a 14 year old girl, and 17 year old Jordan Zech was charged with felony sexual exploitation of a minor for filming the assault of 14 year old Daisy Coleman, as well as another assault that occurred at the same time where a 15 year old assaulted a 13 year old girl, the filming occurred with a cell phone.

The assaults occurred January 8, 2012. On March 13, 2012, felony charges against Barnett and Zech were dropped. Barnett only faced a misdemeanor charge of child endangerment.

Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice was interviewed by St. Joseph based TV station on March 14, 2012.

“We did have all the medical, and all the information where we could make a decision based on the evidence, and I am absolutely convinced it was the right call to do, and it was the right decision to dismiss it,” he says.

However, the rape kits performed on both the girls hadn’t even come back yet for investigators to see. There was video evidence, also the 15 year old boy plead guilty, confession to his part of the assaults, as well as possibly details pertaining to what Barnett and Zech did.

Matthew Barnett is also in a very influential family in Maryville. His grandfather is (former) Missouri Representative Rex Barnett, and Rex served on at least one committee with Sheriff Darrin White.

The conduct of Robert Rice and Darrin White is at the very least, questionable in this case. These assaults occurred in the Barnett home, while family slept upstairs, yet the charges were dropped before the rape kits even came back. The girls have been taunted, and cyber-bullied, the Coleman family had to leave town. Has the Barnett influence reached Rice and White?

Prosecutor Making Excuses? #Opmaryville #Justice4daisy

Is Robert Rice, DA of Nodaway County, making excuses on why the Daisy Coleman rape case wasn’t prosecuted?

I’m sure he’s feeling the heat now that every media outlet is calling his office.

#opmaryville Missouri family becomes target in small town after teen says she was raped

daisy-coleman

A Missouri woman says her family was run out of a small town and their home burned down mysteriously after her teen daughter accused a high school football player from a prominent local family of rape, according to a local report.

Melinda Coleman moved to Maryville from Albany, Mo., three years ago looking for a fresh start after her doctor husband was killed in a car wreck in 2006.

But the new life she was building with her four children in the rural, tight-knit town turned into a nightmare after her daughter Daisy, a 14-year-old freshman at Maryville High, accused a popular football player of raping her while she was drunk, the Kansas City Star reported in a bombshell story written with the family’s cooperation.

Press Release:
 
Greetings, World.
 
We are #OpMaryville
 
Two young girls have been raped in the town of Maryville, Missouri. Another high school football star, the grandson of a Missouri state official, has walked free. The people of Maryville turned their backs on these victims and one family has been forced to flee the town. Their house was later burned to the ground.
 
On January 8th, a 14-year-old girl named Daisy Coleman and her 13-year-old friend were both raped in Maryville. Evidence of this assault was captured on film. Daisy’s unconscious body was later dumped into her family’s yard, left alone for hours in freezing weather. One of Daisy’s attackers was initially in police custody, where he admitted to having sex with her while she was under the influence. He claimed it was consensual. The hospital states the young girl’s blood alcohol level was almost twice the legal limit and they discovered three tears inside of her body, 2-4 inches in length. When asked if a crime occurred, the Sheriff told the press, “Hell yes, it occurred… And did these boys need to be punished for it? Absolutely.”
 
One suspected rapist is Matthew Barnett, a student at the University of Central Missouri. He’s the grandson of Missouri state Representative, Rex Barnett. At 17, Barnett was legally considered to be an adult. All charges against him have been dropped.
 
We demand an immediate investigation into the handling by local authorities of Daisy’s case. Why was a suspect, who confessed to a crime, released with no charges? How was video and medical evidence not enough to put one of these football players inside a court room? What is the connection of these prosecutors, if any, to Rep. Rex Barnett? Most of all, We are wondering, how do the residents of Maryville sleep at night?
 
We have heard Daisy’s story far too often. We heard it from Steubenville, Halifax and Uttar Pradesh. In some cases, it was too late. Both Amanda Todd and Rehtaeh Parsons, girls not much older than Daisy, took their own lives after the adults, the police and the school system, failed to protect them. 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. Mayor Jim Fall, your hands are dirty. Maryville, expect us.
 
We Are Anonymous.
We Are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Join us.
