Great news! A Grand Jury renderd a decision this week after hearing evidence presented by the prosecution against Dan Pollion - insufficient evidence to indict! For those who are unaware, a grand jury is like a regular jury, though they hear only from the prosecution. They then render either a decision to indict which leads to a full jury trial or they render insufficient evidence and no indictment. These are generally one-sided affairs as there is no defense given, the rule of thumb is that if a prosecutor cannot convince a grand jury then their case is awfully weak and charges are usually dropped. This is exactly what happened with Dan! We had two Sinclair College students, unassociated with us, testify on Dans behalf that there was no punch thrown and no resistance. The arresting officer and an additional witness on his behalf, a young student who happens to be going through the school security training program on his way to becoming a Sinclair College Officer, had conflicting stories of what happened. Praise God! Truth has prevailed!
This bodes well for the three of us who have trials coming up in what looks like will be the first week of October. Please keep us in prayer as we prepare for that - Caleb Green is facing trespassing and disorderly conduct misdemeanor charges, Candace Knapscheaffer is facing a misdemeanor trespass charge, and I am facing a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. No charges have been filed against Katie Carroll, the fifth member of our group arrested.
Here is the official online documentation from the county in Dayton regarding Dans charges:

“We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.” - A. W. Tozer
