When Deric Lostutter was sentenced to federal prison and was scheduled to report on May, 8th, 2017 I had originally intended to do my on location live webcast from where Deric would be housed which is tentatively the Federal prison in Butner, NC.


After I wrote this draft, Deric was remanded to the FCI Petersburg penitentiary in Lowell, Virginia. This will likely be where he serves his entire sentence.  

After doing a bit of research, I decided that going to a federal prison to cover his arrival would not work since the likely hood of seeing Deric enter the prison would be slim to none.

It then came to Me that it might be more appropriate to go to where the story began and that would be Steubenville Ohio. It was the town that was the most affected by Deric and his actions and it seemed a good place to complete the story.

Steubenville is known solely as a place where the “rape of the century” took place. Little else about Steubenville is known outside of the rape case. I felt the need to tell the story of the good side of Steubenville and those who live there.

It is a town of history and community. It is the story of people who live their lives day by day, out of the national spotlight. It is this story I hope to tell.

Please join me on my journey to tell the story of a small midwestern town.

Stay tuned

    Alex didn’t involve Deric, Michelle did that on her own. That’s widespread knowledge and is something that’s never been secret. Alex’s involvement was that of blogging and reporting on the case, just like hundreds of others. Shit, even the blog post she was sued by Cody Saltsman for didn’t contain any defamatory content. All she did was post the tweets on that blog post with factual information, nothing inflammatory or defaming. It was her anonymous commenters that was blowing it up and those comments is what caused her to be sued.

    You can thank Alexandria for all the uneccasry drama that SHE started. The cops were handling every thing just fine until she got involved then her and Michelle involved Deric.
    The proof is everywhere.

    Are you seriously going on a road trip to Steubenville?

    How fucking bizarre you are to do this.

    Do you really think that REDACTED BY EDITOR was really all that traumatized by what supposedly happened to her? She got mad drunk, passed out, and some dudes touched her lady parts with their fingers a couple of times.

    Yeah, that’s bad (I guess). But it ain’t that big of a deal and is something that happens all over the planet every time a bunch of kids get drunk and stupid. And all you do, Murt, with this nonsense is feed into the BS claim that Lostutter had any role in this matter other than as a fame-whore.

    REDACTED BY EDITOR was not a victim of the “rape of the century”. (While some people consider digital penetration to be rape, I do not.) All you do, Murt, is show what a dumb ass you are by making such a claim. You wanna know what the “rape of the century” really is? The Japanese Imperial Army marching into Nanking is probably a pretty good place to start.

    The fact that you can afford to go on all of these silly road trips, yet still find time to pan handle for money, is surprising.

      My previous reply got lost so let me try this again. First. I had to redact the name of the person you are referring to in your comment. It is highly inappropriate to disclose who this person is regardless of your point of view. Next, Ohio has a law regarding digital rape. If you do not like the law, form an advocacy group to change the law. Since the law is on the books and the prosecution proved their case, it was necessary to levy the punishment to the two defendants found guilty of the offense.

      I have stated over and over again that Deric Lostutter had no business getting involved in the case. He did a LOT of damage. There was no reason to hack into the sports booster website and there certainly was no reason to change the contents of it and ruin the reputation of innocents in the process. My purpose for going to Steubenville is to paint the city in a positive light. I found the people there to be quite friendly. The city has a lot to offer. It is known as the “City of murals” and I was surprised how many of them there were. It is also the birthplace of Dean Martin and It was interesting to see the references to him all over town. What happened was an unfortunate incident that caused a lot of unnecessary to an otherwise ordinary midwestern town. I only wish the residents there well and hope time puts the matter to rest. It is time to move on.

      Regarding your accusation of panhandling for money. Where on earth did you come up with that one? I have no Gofundme sites or donation sites of any kind anywhere on the internet. I have not solicited funds from anyone. I was able to afford the trips and the expenses came out of pocket. I have no current plans to write a book, shop to sell any rights or set up any kind of pay per reading or view websites of any kind. ALL of my websites are accessible for free to anyone who wishes to visit them.

      I would suggest that the next time you make such an accusation that you do your homework. It is something Deric should have done as well.
