Day Two: Deputy Cindy Benner Trial

Day two for Deputy Cindy Benner Trial in Ashland Municipal Court on Four Charges of Dereliction of Duty brought a surprising ending when the state rested and the defense requested a Rule 29 motion.

You may ask, What is a Rule 29 motion in Ohio? I had to Google it.

According to Google:

“The court on motion of a defendant or on its own motion, after the evidence on either side is closed, shall order the entry of a judgment of acquittal of one or more offenses charged in the indictment, information, or complaint, if the evidence is insufficient to sustain a conviction of such offense or offenses.”

Ashland Municipal Court Judge John L. Good grants the motion dismissing two of the four charges.

The trial is expected to end today.
