Two People Conspire: One Guilty, the Other Not Guilty


CAROLYN’S DAILY POSTS: 2011

(January 12, 2011: All day snow, 21 degrees)

TWO PEOPLE CONSPIRE:

ONE GUILTY, THE OTHER NOT GUILTY

     A teen testified that on three separate occasions she awoke to find that DeWayne Calloway was touching her inappropriately.

~~~~~~~~~~~~    

     A Fayette County (PA) woman, Shayna Brown, admitted to drugging a 13-year old girl so a man could try to impregnate the teen. She plead guilty to a number of charges, including conspiracy, endangering the welfare of children, corruption of minors, and unauthorized administration of an intoxicant.

     The judge ordered Brown to serve two to four years in prison, and to undergo a mental health evaluation with an emphasis on sex offender treatment. For ten years after her parole, Brown must register her address, as a sex offender, with the police.

~~~~~~~~~~~~    

     Brown conspired with DeWayne Calloway to drug the girl. Although he had more than twenty charges against him, including attempted rape of an unconscious person. Calloway denied all the allegations on the stand during his trial, he was acquitted at trial, and a jury found him not guilty of all charges.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If they conspired, how can she be guilty and he not be guilty? Is he not, too, a danger to society?

     Just wondering.

  2. She admitted it and took a plea deal to testify against him. He took his chances with a jury and prevailed. Did he do it? Probably. The system, however, chose to believe him over others who testified. It may have been a case where one or more jurors chose jury nullification.
