Kelly Kidwell - Woman Arrested For Raping 13-Year-Old Boy. Arrest Comes One Month After Using Her Own Child To Shoplift From Store
Cincinnati, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) -- Here's a two-for-one outrage that may have you seeing red. Twice!
Kelly Kidwell, a 31 year old mother was arraigned Thursday morning on charges of having sex with a 13-year-old boy. Investigators say she had had sex with the boy on New Year's Day.
The charges come about a month after Kidwell and her sister, Karen Lienesch, were arrested for shoplifting. Police say the two women entered a Sears store on Glenway Avenue, layered up their children with over $200 in clothing and then attempted to leave without paying.
Police say Lienesch used her 4-year-old daughter to conceal the theft of several clothing items while Kidwell was caught using her two-year-old child to steal other clothing items.
Detectives say Lienesch had $300 in her purse at the time of the attempted theft.
Local media in Cincinnati fawned over the pair, painting the women as downtrodden misfortunates who stole the clothing because they needed to save money for food and rent.
Lienesch was quoted as being "sorry she tried to steal clothing for her kids, but claims she's a struggling mom who was trying to clothe her children."
"I didn't really want to spend [the money in my purse] because I don't have a job and I can't get no income or nothing," said Lienesch.
The media cranked up the drama a little more by interviewing Grandma, who howled about how little the women had because neither of the sisters have jobs.
"They tried to steal because they didn't have the money to put clothes on their kids backs. So they decided to go to the store so their kids look good," Grandma said.
Both women were arrested and then released after posting bond (and I'll get to the bond issue in a minute). Authorities believe the women will likely enter a diversion program instead of facing any jail time for the theft.
Details on Kidwell's child sex charge are still developing.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
Well if you haven't noticed yet, I'm frustrated. Here we have a pair of women who walk into a store with the preconceived plan of stealing - and our corrupt media spends half it's time justifying the crime because the women were trying to steal clothing for the children they spawned.
Hello media! The grocery store by my house always needs stockers, and there's a McDonalds on almost every block that needs it's hamburgers bagged up for customers. Our economy is tight, but it's not dead.
There are also countless charity organizations that have bags and bags and bags of donated clothing. Have you been in a Goodwill lately? You'd be amazed at what you can find in those stores sometimes!
Next..... there's the little issue about posting bond that never ceases to amaze me. It's funny how the the media sobs for these poor saps who have "nothing", but the bond always manages to get paid, doesn't it? Same goes for the cartons of cigs and booze that can usually be found waiting at home for more than a few of these folks.
Alas, we find out a month later - long after the sobbing media packed up it's cameras - at least one of these poor souls was "allegedly" busy raping a kid.
And media outlets just can't put their finger on why it's slowly going bankrupt? It's not ALL because of online media sources.
Sobbing media story if you can stomach reading it.
