Lebanon Middle School teacher found guilty on charges revolving student On Tuesday, January 11, the Commonwealth' of Virginia rest- ed its case in the two-day jury trial against the former Lebanon Middle School teacher, Connie Beth Klewer, who was charged with four felonies and one mis- demeanor offense for having inappropriate contact with a for- mer student. After hearing clos- ing arguments, it took the jury only 45 minutes to render guilty verdicts on all five (5) charges against Klewer. The case stemmed from inci- dents occurring in July, 2009, in which Klewer, the 37 year old teacher was charged with multip- le incidents of inappropriate con- tact with a fourteen year old student. Klewer was found guilty of:. (a) Three (3) counts of Using communications device to solicit a'minor; (b) One (1) count of Possession of child pornography; and, (c) One (1) count of Con- tributing to Delinquency of a Minor. Brian Patton, Russell County Commonwealth's Attorney, was the prosecutor on the case. Dur- ing his opening statement, Patton summarized the case, which was largely based on graphic images, and sexually explicit emails and text messages sent by Klewer to the victim's cell phone and emaii account. The inappropriate con- tact was first discovered by the victim's mother who had be- come suspicious and checked the boy's phone. The victim and his mother reported the crimes to the Rus- sell County Sheriff's Office on July 9, 2009, at which time the Detective Division conducted an investigation and an undercover sting operation against Klewer. Patton told the jury that the victim trusted Klewer and even warned her that his mother had found his phone, however, she still continued to send explicit test messages to him and made arrangements to meet him at a local park. On July 9, 2009, Klewer was arrested while wait- ing on the 14 year old boy, sitting in her car with her phone in her hand. At the sentencing phase of the trial, Klewer's mother testi- fied that her daughter may have suffered from bipolar disorder caused by a change in air pres- sure following a June, 2009, trip to Colorado, however, no medi- cal evidence was presented ver- ifying this information. After one hour of deliberating over a punishment for Kiewer, the jury recommended a 32 % year sen- tence. Following the jury's recom- mendation, Patton stated, "We are blessed to have such talented and dedicated teachers in the Russell County school system. Ms. Klewer's actions are cer- tainly not representative of the educational community. I believe the jury considered that Ms. Klewer was in a position of pub- lic trust when she committed these crimes. " Patton further stated, "I also want to commend the victim and his family who had the courage to come forward and report these acts to auth- orities, and I hope that he is now able to move forward with his life and put this negative ex- perience behind him." Patton declined to comment on the specifics of Klewer's case until after the official sentencing date on March 31, 2011. Klewer is presently being held in the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Abingdon, and will remain there until after her official sentencing date.

CLINCH VALLEY TIMES, St. Paul, VA, Thursday, January 27, 2011 Page 3 II I Topics of ruth Compliments of Pastor Jessie M. Jones 762-7963 Many places in the Bible it teaches of being set free. In Genesis we read how the Lord told Noah to build the ark. He obeyed God and when the earth was covered by water he, his wife, his sons and their wives and two of each and every animal were all that survived the flood. When Noah sent out a dove and it returned with an olive leaf, he knew the water had receded from the land. He set the dove free and the dove never returned. Then came the time when Jesus Christ came on the scene to be the only true and redeemed sacrifice to save a lost and dying You're invited to Ashes to Beauty A women's group that meets at First Assembly in Dante, 6 p,m, every third Saturday, invites others to come and .share in fel- lowship, worship and ministry- from Ashes to Beauty.

Pilate urged the people to free Jesus, but instead they insisted that Barabbas, a murderer, be freed instead 'of Jesus. Many of us are not in prison and never will be, but we are all still under the bondage of sin. But regardless of creed, color, or nationality we all have a pathway'to freedom and it is this simple -, " Follow Jesus Repent Exalf Christ Escape Hell CV'i:imes Deadlines: Editorial copy (birthdays, anniversaries, press' releases, calendar items, weddings, etc.) 4 p.m. Monday Advertising (classified and display) 12 noon Tuesday Here to serve... coucH- e HOME MEDICAL 276-762-0146 Hamilton Pharmacy I& Couch Home Medical Our pharmacy will compete with the big boysl Plus we have jewelry and watches also a wide selection of much ne0ded $1 itemsl We are buying gold and coins.Top dollar paidl Layaway jewelry for your special occasionsl Couch Home Medical can provide you with all your home medical ds.
