Comments for: Judge reverses decision, allows release of more info on alleged johns

PORTLAND, Maine — A Superior Court judge Tuesday afternoon reversed his decision and allowed the release of information identifying the men charged with engaging a prostitute in the high-profile Kennebunk prostitution case. Shortly afterward, at about 5:30 p.m., the Kennebunk Police Department released ages and addresses… Read More

    Dear God the legal system regarding this case is more dramatic than the actual case.

    I wonder what the headline of BDN will be tomorrow, “names of people who might know at least one of the johns will be released starting Monday…..or is it Tuesday.  Wait, maybe they will only release their middle names.”

    This case is getting national attention and the court system looks like complete amateurs…pathetic.

       35 years of the Dems ruling Maine has left government a dysfunctional mess at all levels. It’s sad really.

    Ooooohhhhhh…this is getting interesting.

    • You want interesting. GIS her name and read some other articles.

      •  Just curious, I’ve seen you use GIS twice.  What does it mean?

        • Google internet search.

          •  Thanks.  I do GIS (Geographic Information System) mapping for a living, and haven’t seen it used your way.

    This has gone beyond the circus stage. Talk about an embarrassment & not to the “Johns” either.  Could this case be handled any more incompetently?  That includes the PD, DA, & so-called judge.  Anyone wonder about the Maine “justice system”  inconsistencies (I dunno, drug, child abuse, etc. “sentencing”) & witnessing this cluster have any questions?  This entire thing is going to blow up into an even bigger embarrassment than it already is.

    They are trying to hold up a system that is irreparably broken. Release the information and let the chips fall where they may. Sorry, but that’s the only thing that will ameliorate the situation for the innocent, ie people with same names, embarrassed family members, or people who have been caught in extortion or blackmail. Do what is right.

    Seems to me these people who are fighting to keep their names from being listed and released are bringing more attention to themselves with all this trying to prevent it!  I probably wouldn’t have even read the article or list before but now my curiosity is up!

       Lawyers, mayors, business executives, married men – I can understand why people are freaking out.  Too bad they didn’t think of that before they hired the hooker.

        Allegedly “hired the hooker”. Nobody has been found guilty of anything at this point.

          Thats correct. when studying bookkeeping sometimes people makeup a business to practice with. The only thing that will be proof is the videos. (-;

            Goodness I do hope no one has died.

            Now let’s look at your second sentence. “This forum is not a court of law, so anyone can voice their opinion.”

            Does that apply to me or just people you agree with?

    People have similar names so, giving the info will protect those who may have a same name with different middle name and address.  This is the right action to protect those who were not involved.  The judge and the DA need to get their act together.

    • Anonymous

      I fully agree. All one needs to do is go to White Pages.com and punch in James White (one of the 21 names). More than a dozen James Whites pop up, many of whom have wives or loved ones listed who have absolutely NOTHING to do with the case, but will be inundated with calls, questions and embarassment. And, now it seems the judge has decided not to release more names. What a fiasco! The totally innocent people with similar names should sue them.

    Fare as I know its not against the law to have sex….It is only against the law to take money for sex.  A person can have sex as much as they want with whom ever they want and as many times a day if they want.    So this is what she did.  If he wanted to give her a little gift of money upon leaving what of it…
    Look we have a casino why not hookers…

      Exactly – job creation! Think of how many more people would be in the work force if Maine legalized prostitution, then prostitutes (male and female) can become legitimate and tax paying  responsible citizens; and just think, a politician could take credit for job creation if they had the guts to introduce a legalization bill…….

    “Moreover, please be mindful of the presumption of innocence under the law,” wrote Bean Burpee. “A summons is not a conviction; it is only a charge. No one should pass judgment prematurely on those to whom a summons is issued.”
    Good let convincing any of these righteous commenters that.

    In all likelihood, of course, these guys are probably guilty, but that’s not how things work in this country. You are innocent until PROVEN guilty, not innocent until PROBABLY guilty.

    You know this is such a great deal for this working woman.

     “She works hard for her money”.

    “Lealize it, don’t criticize it”.

    “Live and let live”.

    “Live it out”.

    Get the movie rights, stand your ground.

    You have a great story, I have no doubt.

    The 99% are always the ones prosecuted by self-rightous, contumelious, contumacious “nobleman”.

    I pray that you have the strength to endure.

    Peace be with you.  You are not alone.

    get over it  there would not have been a prostitution ring if no men existed so if she is presumed guilty and there are videos and names of the johns, then they should be held as responsible as the woman. I don’t  see anyone worrying about her reputation

    Just a thought, maybe the newspapers should wait until someone has been convicted of something before listing their name?  Seems like trial by newspaper is becoming way too common these days.
    Especially in a case where no addresses were listed and several people of the same name live in the area?  Gutter journalism at its finest.  Perhaps a few lawsuits would smarten up?
