PROSECUTOR O'BRIEN OPPOSES COMMUTATION
REQUEST OF NOTORIOUS
SERIAL RAPIST---DOCTOR EDWARD F. JACKSON
Prosecutor Ron O'Brien was notified this week by the Ohio Parole Board that Dr.Edward F. Jackson had applied for a commutation of his lengthy prison sentence.
O'Brien immediately fired off a two page letter to the Parole Board, copied to
Governor Kasich, in which he said" I am adamantly opposed to this commutation
request by Dr. Jackson", and that Jackson" is probably the most notorious serial
rapist in the recent history of the city of Columbus" .
O'Brien recounted the history of Jackson's arrest and the two trials in other Ohio
cities after a change of venue.
Speaking for the victims O'Brien said" None of his many victims would agree that
the sentence was excessive and there are few if any cases to which his seven year
crime spree could be compared".
O'Brien has opposed parole in the past for Jackson, and again expressed the
opinion that Jackson should never be released from custody due to the serious
harm inflicted on at least 36 known rape victims.

FIRST VEHICULAR HOMICIDE WHILE TEXTING CASE INDICTED IN FRANKLIN COUNTY
February 10, 2011
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announced that the Franklin County Grand Jury has indicted the first known aggravated vehicular homicide while texting case against Daniel R. Jacobs, age 56, in the death of Dalton Ludwig, age 16, and for the serious physical harm to Floyd Evans, age 62, in connection with the crash that occurred on Interstate 270 near U.S. Route 33 on July 1, 2010, at approximately 6:00 pm. Ludwig suffered life-threatening injuries, was flown to Grant Medical Center, but passed away later that evening. Evans was also transported and admitted to Grant Medical Center, and was treated for numerous serious injuries. At the time of the crash, Floyd Evans was Dalton Ludwig’s driving instructor. They were in the middle of a driving lesson and had pulled onto the shoulder of the freeway. It is alleged that Daniel Jacobs was texting when he failed to control his car, changed lanes without safety, and ran off the roadway striking the victims in the vehicle stopped on the shoulder of the roadway. Jacobs has been indicted for one count Aggravated Vehicular Homicide (F-3) and one count of Vehicular Assault (F-4), for a total of two counts. “This case tragically illustrates the importance of minimizing distractions while driving”, O’Brien stated.

ART SCHLICHTER CHARGED IN THEFT, SURRENDERS AT PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE
February 14, 2011
Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announced that Art Schlichter has been charged with Theft from an elderly person in an amount exceeding One Million Dollars, a first degree felony under Ohio law, which is punishable by a maximum penalty of ten years imprisonment and a $20,000 fine.
A complaint was filed in the Franklin County Municipal Court this morning by Detective Scott Davis, Dublin, Ohio Police Department, that charged Schlichter with theft by deception. Davis’s charge alleges that between 2009 and November 2010 Schlichter obtained in excess of One Million Dollars from Anita L. Barney in the form of cash, checks, and credit card charges under circumstances where the various forms of property were obtained by misrepresentation of material facts regarding the purpose of the transaction. At age 68 Barney is an elderly person as defined in Ohio law, which increases the potential penalties for the theft.
Davis requested an arrest warrant, which was issued by the Clerk of Courts.
Schlichter voluntarily surrendered on that arrest warrant at O’Brien’s office with his attorney, Sam Shamansky.
Shamansky surrendered Schlichter with an offer to cooperate with the continuing investigation of investments, loans, or sale of Ohio State football tickets and 2011 Super Bowl tickets that is being conducted by Dublin police and O’Brien’s office.
As a result, after his surrender Schlichter met with state and federal law enforcement officials for several hours in O’Brien’s office before being taken to the Franklin County jail to be slated on the Barney theft charge.
Schlichter likely will remain in custody until his case is considered by the Franklin County Grand Jury because he is on probation for similar offenses in Marion County, Indiana (Indianapolis). O’Brien expects Marion County to put a probation violation holder on Schlichter based upon the new charge. That holder would keep Schlichter in custody even if he could otherwise post bond on the Barney charge.
O’Brien called upon any member of the public who believes that they were a victim of a scheme involving Schlichter, where there was a financial loss, to contact his office at 614-525-3555 to determine if a police report should be filed.
