    No End In Sight For Stebic Visitation Case

    PLAINFIELD, Ill. (STNG) -- Lawyers attempting to arrange visits between the family of missing Plainfield woman Lisa Stebic and her children, who are cared for by her husband Craig Stebic, were in court again Friday for a closed-door conference with a judge.

    Apparently, they didn’t get much closer to their goal of a second visit.

    “The judge gave recommendations to settle or address the difficulties the parties are having,” Dion Davi, Craig Stebic’s lawyer said outside the courtroom.

    The case will return to court later this month.

    Stebic lawyers back in court over visitation
    .............snip.....................


    The visitation agreement is confidential, as well as the date of the visit between the grandparents and grandchildren that occured this summer.

    Last week in court the Ruttenberg’s attorney Timothy Daw accused Craig of unreasonably withholding a second visit. Davi denied that and said the dispute centered on the Ruttenbergs rejecting the date and time Craig chose for a second visit.

    By JANET LUNDQUIST
    The Herald News

    ..........snip.............

    The case will return to court Sept. 29, when both sides will report whether they were able to resolve their differences.

    In July, the parties reached an agreement on a petition filed in November by Lisa Stebic's parents and grandparents - Lawrence and Judith Ruttenberg and Milton and Charlotte Ruttenberg - seeking visits with the two Stebic kids

    UPDATE: Stebic Family Calls CBS 'Reckless' And 'Malicious'

    CHICAGO -- Craig Stebic’s family filed a lawsuit against CBS and several of the station’s reporters Friday, claiming their coverage of the relationship between Craig Stebic and former NBC reporter Amy Jacobson was false, malicious and illegal.

    Stebic’s sister, Jill Webb and her husband Robert Webb claim they and their children suffered “severe emotional distress” from the media attention surrounding Jacobson’s swim with the family last summer in Stebic’s Plainfield home.

    The suit, filed in Cook County Circuit Court, claims that CBS Broadcasting, Inc. and its employees, Joseph Ahern, Carol Fowler, Mike Puccinelli, Rob Johnson, Michele Weldon and Alita Guillen were reckless in reporting the Jacobson incident, which has allegedly alienated and damaged their family.

    Stebic family: CBS 'reckless' and 'malicious'

    .............snip...............

    The Webb&#8217;s claim that Stebic&#8217;s neighbor, Tracey Reardon, maliciously videotaped the outing from an upstairs window and gave the tape to CBS reporter Puccinelli, who the family &#8220;did not trust.&#8221;

    &#8220;At no time&#8221; did the family indicate that their meeting with Jacobson was going to be an &#8220;adult pool party&#8221; or had any purpose of being &#8220;social,&#8221; the suit said.

    Puccinelli accused of naming Craig Stebic as a &#8220;person of interest&#8221; in his wife&#8217;s disappearance more than a week before authorities did. Despite the fact that Craig was ultimately named a &#8220;person of interest,&#8221; the Webb&#8217;s claim Puccinelli's reporting was &#8220;reckless&#8221; and &#8220;incorrect.&#8221;

    The suit asks for more than $40,000 in damages from the incident, claiming the media frenzy has caused &#8220;extreme mental anguish,&#8221; &#8220;ongoing medical bills,&#8221; and &#8220;severe emotional distress&#8221; for the family.

    It also says Jacobson&#8217;s relationship with the family was of no &#8220;legitimate concern to the public.&#8221;

    &#8220;At no time did [the Stebic, Webb or Jacobson families] authorize videotaping,&#8221; the suit said, accusing Reardon and CBS employees of invading their privacy and &#8220;spying on&#8221; them.

    Jacobson filed a similar suit against the network in July, claiming the videotape from that day was maliciously edited and the story had destroyed her career.

    In a statement following Jacobson&#8217;s multimillion dollar lawsuit, Channel 2 said, "CBS 2 stands by its reporting. Ms. Jacobson's claim has no merit, and we look forward to vigorously defending ourselves in court."

    In November 2007, Lisa's parents, Lawrence and Judith Ruttenberg, and grandparents, Milton and Charlotte Ruttenberg, filed a petition seeking visits with the Stebic children, now ages 12 and 13.

    During the case, Lisa's family asked Craig to confirm some things he may have said in front of his children, including an alleged threat to "cut Lisa Stebic into pieces and no one would ever find her," according to court documents.

    Or the time he allegedly said Lisa's face "would be on the back of a milk carton someday."

    Craig never had to answer the questions, as he and his lawyer offered to compromise on visits soon after the request was made.

    Amy Jacobson Wins Round One in Court Battle Against CBS
    February 23, 2009

    "Former NBC-5 news reporter Amy Jacobson has won round one in her defamation suit against CBS. According to the Chicago Tribune, Associate Cook County Judge Elisabeth Budzinski ruled that four of Amy Jacobson's eight counts could go forward, paving the way for what is sure to be a high-profile showdown in court.

    All of this stems from Amy Jacobson's involvement in a scandal that ignited a media firestorm back in in July of 2007. Amy Jacobson had been covering the mysterious disappearance of Lisa Stebic, a Plainfield, Illinois mother of two who went missing on April 30, 2007.

    The Will/Grundy Major Crimes Task Force, consisting of 36 local law enforcement agencies, will begin operating June 1.

    Fifty-seven officers from departments large and small will share resources when called to investigate a homicide or mass shooting.

    Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow cited the April 2007 disappearance and potential homicide of Plainfield's Lisa Stebic and the slaying of five woman in February 2008 at a Lane Bryant store in Tinley Park as examples of the types of cases the task force would work on.

    Stebic charged with assault

    By STEWART WARREN swarren@scn1.com/swarren@scn1.com

    "He was arrested for assault on a matter that is not related to the disappearance of his wife," Plainfield police Cmdr. Ken Ruggles said Monday afternoon.

    The incident involving Stebic, 43, happened at 1:37 p.m. in front of his home, 13244 Red Star Drive, Ruggles said.
    "He was arrested for the charge of assault after he made a threatening statement to a neighbor," Ruggles said, although he wouldn't elaborate.
    The police went to the neighborhood after receiving a complaint about fireworks, Ruggles said.
    "Beyond that, I can't comment on who was directly involved at this point," Ruggles said.

    From hearsay to testimony
    Lisa Stebic's husband is the only suspect is her disappearance. Could his alleged threats be used against him?

    March 7, 2010
    <snipped>
    People said a lot of bad things about Drew Peterson after his fourth wife went missing. The same thing happened to Craig Stebic, whose wife Lisa vanished in April 2007.

    While seeking visitation rights to their grandchildren in 2008, Lisa's parents asked Stebic to confirm whether he said he could "cut Lisa Stebic into pieces and no one would ever find her," according to court documents. They also alleged he may have said Lisa's face "would be on the back of a milk carton someday."

    Previously inadmissible in court, some hearsay statements may make it into Peterson's trial, thanks to a new state law passed in 2008 that allows hearsay evidence from witnesses determined to have been murdered to keep them from testifying.

    Could Craig Stebic face hearsay testimony in court one day? The Stebics were in the midst of a divorce when Lisa disappeared, and the hearsay law applies to both civil and criminal cases.

    The day she disappeared Lisa sent her attorney a petition to temporarily evict Craig from their house while the case was pending.


    Dangerous law?
    Stebic's attorney, George Lenard, is part of the team representing Drew Peterson. Lenard declined to comment on the Peterson hearsay hearing because the judge has not issued his ruling.

    No new leads
    At this point, Plainfield police say they have no immediate plan to apply the law to the Stebic case, but are watching to see what happens with the hearsay law in Peterson's case. "It's something that's so relatively new that it's my understanding that the state's attorney is not looking at that angle in the Stebic investigation," said Plainfield police Detective Sgt. Troy Kivisto.

    Charles B. Pelkie, spokesman for Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow, declined to comment on whether the hearsay law could apply to the Stebic case. Perhaps new information will come up in the future, or Lisa will be found, to complete the puzzle of her disappearance, he said. But he did not rule out the option of the hearsay law, "should it become necessary."

    "I imagine they continue to look only at Craig Stebic. That's the way it's always going to be. That's a real problem," Lenard said. "They refuse to look anywhere else."

    Lenard declined to comment on whether he or Stebic have information that points to another culprit in Lisa's disappearance.

    PLAINFIELD, Ill. (AP) &#8213;
    A suburban Chicago police department that's been investigating the disappearance of a woman for three years is getting some help.

    A task force made up of officers and crime scene technicians from 36 agencies in Will and Grundy counties, the Illinois State Police and the FBI will assist Plainfield Police detectives in their investigation into the April 2007 disappearance of Lisa Stebic.

    In an announcement made Friday, officials said Plainfield police will continue to lead the investigation.

    Police step up search for Lisa Stebic

    April 30, 2010
    BY DAN ROZEK Staff Reporter

    Three years after Lisa Stebic vanished, police are stepping up — not scaling back — their search for the missing Plainfield woman.

    A new regional police task force will assist Plainfield investigators in trying to determine what happened to the 37-year-old mother of two young children who was last seen at her home on April 30, 2007.

    “It never hurts to have fresh eyes look at an investigation,” Plainfield Police Chief William Doster said Friday.

    Marking the anniversary of Stebic’s disappearance, Plainfield police announced they will begin working with the Will/Grundy Major Crimes Task Force to solve the baffling case.

    The regional task force, launched last year, can field more than 80 detectives and crime scene specialists to assist suburban departments in demanding investigations.

    The Plainfield department has five investigators.

    “Criminal investigations can be very complex, dynamic and challenging. When you have a team of highly skilled, well-trained, seasoned detectives at your disposal, it only makes sense to bring them in,” said Joliet Police Chief Fred Hayes, who chairs the task force’s executive board.

    Remembering Lisa
    May 16, 2010

    [​IMG]

    Thirty-seven purple balloons blew in the wind Saturday evening, along with four white ones.

    The purple balloons represented the years Lisa Ruttenberg Stebic was around to celebrate her birthday -- the four were for the birthdays she has been missing.

    "(Lisa) laughed loud. She was fun," said Melanie Greenberg, Lisa's cousin and a family spokeswoman. "She loved every celebration."
