*** Raymond Corll’s attorney filed the below petition and motions Friday in Lancaster County Court.
** On a different and somewhat lighter note, the below is the third “Crime Watch” email from LNP in the last week that has advertising for the Marinaro Law Firm. If you recall, LNP sued Marinaro for payment and owner Mike Marinaro said in an email to this site that he was going to counter-sue (click here).
As expected, it looks like they have worked out their differences. Marinaro told me over the phone they could afford to pay the bill but were not because of principle. I never doubted for a minute that they could pay because his firm has been expanding rapidly and I’ve seen him in court and he is an excellent attorney.
And LNP would not want to lose a major advertiser and they most certainly would not want this from Marinaro’s email to be made public:
“…that LNP made false, misleading statements, regarding circulation numbers of its newspaper and digital consumers.”
Oh, my. Well played, Mr. Marinaro!
* A commenter brought up that there is a “Salary Study” on tonight’s agenda for the city council committee meeting (link below). Several months ago, Council President James Reichenbach brought up clerk Bernie Harris’ salary from out of nowhere and said it was “low” compared to comparable cities and they were going to look into this further.
If this is what they are talking about it is ridiculous. I don’t know what Harris makes but I will find out. Meantime, in the middle of a financial crisis there should not be raises for anyone!
AND CITY COUNCIL
Former Lancaster city police Sgt. Ray Corll posted bail Tuesday, allowing him to be released from prison while his case is under appeal.
From the June 28, 2017 LNP article, “Former Lancaster city police Sgt. Ray Corll released on bail during appeals process,” (click here).
Corll has been free on bail for almost two years pending first his appeal to the Superior Court of PA which was denied and then his appeal to the Supreme Court of PA. As reported here on Friday, the Supreme Court denied his appeal on May 30th.
When will Corll be returned to prison to complete his 7-to-23 month sentence? I will make calls today.
As to yesterday’s post regarding David Smucker, he is scheduled to have a status conference this Thursday at 9:00 am before President Judge Dennis Reinaker. A portion of a post from this site on April 2nd is below (the original is here): Finally, there is a Lancaster City Council Committee Meeting tonight at 6:00 pm. The agenda is here and includes an update on the marijuana ordinance.
There will be much more on this coming later today.
