                    Some cases not prosecuted

                    At least three cases involving crimes against children have been retired to the files during the October court term.

                    Third Circuit District Attorney Ben Creekmore said he could not comment on the individual cases but that in general, sexual-based crimes are prosecuted like any other crimes, however, just because there’s been an arrest, doesn’t necessarily mean there is always a conviction.

                    See these cases and other results from the October Court Term in today’s EAGLE. (November 18, 2010, Page 1)
