UPDATE ** – * SPIN THE POLITICAL AGENDA OF A COMMUNITY

     I simply cannot wait to receive Molly Henderson’s book “Pressed.” Years and years of LNP spinning the truth and lying to the public to line their own pockets. Simply unbelievable. Click here to read the below.

*********

**   Troy L. Metzger was sentenced to four years of probation for two different charges under different dockets that were combined. She was also, as in all of these theft cases, ordered to pay “restitution.”
       I will take a very careful look at the charges in all of these cases – who was charged with what and the degree of the charge next week. That will include updates on these other two white women who stole a lot of money (the original is here). Will either of them do any jail time?

*    The below article was published on this site on April 13, 2019 under the headline “CAN WHITE WOMEN STEAL IN LANCASTER COUNTY?” (click here for the original).
     Troy L. Metzger pleaded guilty yesterday and was sentenced by Judge Howard Knisely. So, will she go to jail? What do you think she was sentenced to?

UNBRIDLED LOCAL MEDIA!

From a review of “Pressed” on Amazon.com (click here).

      “However, Pressed gives those future historians the documentation to debate the effect of the power of an unbridled local media to spin the political agenda of a community, as Lancaster Newspapers did for decades up to and culminating with the Penn Square debacle.
     Exactly! That’s why the Lancaster Independent Press was founded years ago. The Steinman family, owners of LNP, did not care about journalistic principles, ethics or honesty. They cared about controlling Lancaster County and keeping it white and conservative and making a fortune for themselves off their readers who had no other source for news. And they are still doing it 225 years later.

    Why are you so obsessed with putting women (or men) in prison for non-violent crimes? That is not what prisons are for and attitudes like yours are why America has more people behind bars than any other nation in the world. What is your problem?

      I am worried about EQUAL justice! The black woman spent nine months in jail. Neither of the three white woman have even seen the jail let alone stepped foot in it! What do you think the punishment should be for women or men who steal $50,000 or $75,000 from their employer or scam someone on Facebook messenger?

        I don’t know, but W&O’s Ryan is free on $50,000.00 unsecured bond and you didn’t say a word about that. He will be gone before sentencing. My point is your methodology is unscientific, based on limited info in every case when there are so many variables as the other poster pointed out. EQUAL justice requires reform of the entire system, as D-A candidate Hobie Crystal pointed out in his op-ed piece today. The goal will not achieved through righteous indignation over piecemeal cases with an eye for an eye attitude over what has been going on for decades….everywhere. This is not a Lancaster County problem, only. It is a problem everywhere that cannot be fixed by continuing to demand JAIL time equally applied so that lives are destroyed proportionately. Please read Hobie’s article and compare it to his opponent – a white woman and (nearly) career prosecutor who will surely maintain the status quo that you and I an so many others now abhor.

    A problem with comparing the aggregate sentences of these two women is that Shaunta didn’t just plead guilty to theft like Troy. She also pleaded to two counts of money laundering (in Pennsylvania its called “dealing in proceeds”). That’s a more serious offense in Pennsylvania and carries a higher sentencing guideline range (which, I believe, starts at 9 mos. for someone with no priors). That means she got the very bottom of the guideline range for those two charges. I notice she too received only probation for the counts of theft…..same as Troy.

    • Becky says:

      Aha! I knew you were coming! As I just published, I am going to take a very careful look at the charges and sentences in all four of these cases next week. And you failed to mention that Troy has priors – bad check charges in Lancaster and Cumberland Counties.

      • Anon says:

        Not enough to change her sentencing guidelines (still a prior record score of 0). https://www.pacode.com/secure/data/204/chapter303/chap303toc.html

        The fact is that both of these women got concurrent sentences at the VERY bottom of their guideline ranges and they both got probation for the charges they had in common. The difference maker was the money laundering offenses.

        I have not looked at the other cases you speak of, so cannot comment on those.

      • Anon says:

        If you really want to do a fair comparison of sentences in Pennsylvania, you have to consider the sentencing guideline ranges. The more telling thing to look at would be who receives aggravated sentences (those above the guideline range) v. mitigated sentences (those below the guideline range) v. sentences within their guideline range and who receives concurrent v. consecutive sentences.

      Peggy Steinman ???

        I think Peggy Steinman is maybe running out of money.

        Sold their mansion on Plum and Orange for ~half million due to complete state of disrepair.

        In process of selling another mansion on 200 block E Orange that wont fetch a good price due to complete disrepair.

        Selling their Conestoga house at auction. (assessed at $1.8 million).

        Selling all the LNP real estate…

        All this just in the last less than 2 years.

        • huh? says:

          I’ve said all along that once the lady with the big hair goes to that great hairdresser in the sky you are going to see the LNP off-loaded before her hair wilts. They’ll all relocate to a country where we don’t have an extradition treaty with.

          I knew about the Conestoga house being on the market. Didn’t know about the other two.

        • Tony says:

          Hey let me ask this how much did she make in profit selling them? How much would it cost to repair “Older Mansions” ? She knows she ain’t living forever their is a time to sell stuff in life maybe she is there.
