They had found her walking on 99. I was very grateful they only wanted to bring her home.....the school blamed her, and the school board still thinks that I am just terrible for wanting change here in Kansas.
    I am sorry to hear that siriusun. I hope your daughter is doing well now. The school should have been responsible for where you daughter was at all times. Keep pushing for change because we can't let this happen again. Schools need to be held responsible for where children are at even at sporting events.

    Keep up the fight and when you can let us know how it is going.

    Jacob should not be getting away with what he is doing because of his family, that is wrong and the law needs to quit protecting him. They need to protect each and every citizen!

    Porn history admissible in trial of Jacob Ewing, Holton, Kan., man accused of rapes

    Jacob Ewing’s pornography viewing history will be allowed in next month’s rape trial, a judge has ruled.

    The Holton, Kan., man, who was acquitted of charges of aggravated criminal sodomy and indecent liberties of a 13-year-old in April, now faces allegations of rape, aggravated sodomy and battery brought by two women. Earlier this month, the prosecution argued scenes in porn videos that Ewing viewed around the time the alleged crimes occurred mirror the acts he’s charged with.

    Jacob Ewing’s second trial reopens wounds in Kansas town divided by sex crime allegations

    HOLTON, KAN.
    A few miles outside of town, a faded yellow sign hangs from white fence posts. Against a rustic backdrop, it flutters and declares, “JUSTICE FOR JACOB,” reminding the town that one of its own is locked away.

    .....

    “It’s put such a stain on our community,” said Ewing’s grandmother, Julie Hawthorne. Holton “is quaint. The people are so nice. Then you’ve got this. The news portrays anybody who supports Jacob or us as being these hicks. ... We’re not these backward people.”

    .....

    Meanwhile, the mother of one of the alleged victims, who won’t be named under The Star’s policy to not identify alleged sexual assault victims or their immediate family members, has endured her own version of hell.

    “My daughter says that now people look at her either one of two ways,” she said. “Either, ‘There is that poor girl that got raped,’ or, ‘There is the whore on a witch hunt.’ ”

    Much more info at the link!

    I pray they can find an un-biased jury for these next trials. This guy need to be put away for a long time as it appears he will not quit committing these type of crimes! jmo moo and imo!!!!!!

    I agree, however; this is an interesting conundrum. Rural communities in Northeast Kansas have a history that they have denied for many years concerning the ways they try to subvert the law and corrupt justice when they find it inconvenient to abide by the law. I have been warning them for years that this cannot help but implode on them, sooner or later. Now, it looks as if those who wanted to deny reality are going to have to give this a closer look. If the defendant was not a long term resident of his town, with the right surname, race, and social connections, he probably would not have fared so well in court during the last trial, regardless of guilt or innocence. The law here in this part of Kansas is usually used to harass people or drive people out of town; not to protect people or obtain justice. That said, most of the people in Holton are very nice, and I wish this had not happened.

    Jefferson County woman tells jurors Jacob Ewing sexually assaulted her in Holton home

    HOLTON — A woman who has accused Jacob C. Ewing, of Holton, of violently sexually assaulting her remained calm Tuesday as she took the stand, detailing to jurors for more than an hour her memory of a night in May 2016 when she alleges Ewing raped and sodomized her.


    After a party at his home, the woman wanted to go to sleep in Ewing’s bed, but he persisted in trying to remove her clothes. Eventually her clothes were removed and Ewing forced her to have sex, she said.

    I doubt if Jackson County would stream this trial, especially when a jury is involved. It was hard enough to seat a jury in the first place, because so many people in NE Kansas cannot get past their worries about what other people think of them. Any accidental footage of the jury would only exacerbate that problem and possibly corrupt justice, here.

    Sadly, this whole situation goes to the flaws in the culture, here in Kansas. While this guy definitely owes accountability to the victim and the community for his violence, the wrong message was sent by the victim when she slept in his bed.....even if the whole thing was arranged beforehand. Another problem I had in Kansas, involving my daughter, had to do with a classmate of hers inviting a friend from another state to have relations with my daughter. She had never done anything like that before, and I not only stopped allowing her to have any contact with this classmate's family, I got a lot more strict with all of my children. The principal of the school went on a smear campaign against me, and lectured me on how cruel it is to stop children from socially getting to know each other! Sexual exploitation is a thing, here in Kansas, and the people here DO NOT understand the difference between assault and affection, or age appropriate friendships, or the difference between right and wrong. No kidding. It came as no surprise to see the thirteen year old regarded as collateral by a "quaint" small community in Kansas, but looking more closely at the whole thing.....what kind of message is sent by sleeping in a guy's bed? That is when the current victim's power disappeared, and she gave it up, it wasn't taken away. She should never have been in that situation in the first place, and a community that values sexual exploitation as a social game should not have been important to her. That said, most of the people in Holton are nice, and I am sorry to see these things happen.

    If the key does not fit, it's the wrong key.

    I understand what your experience was and what the culture is in small town America is. I live in a small town in NE Kansas also and it probably has the same mind set here, I didn't raise my children here they were raised in a small town in Missouri. I saw to many times where we moved from in MO the natives got treated special and the transplants like we were treated different. It is not just in Kansas, it is all over is small town USA.

    I think the judges could make a difference in these small towns if they wanted to. I know they have to follow the law, but they can also accept special circumstances. jmo

    How nice that not only can Ewing break the law and get away with it, so can his family members.
