Steubenville Transcript: Deal or No Deal?

There’s some controversy as to whether prosecutors, including Mike DeWine’s office, offered any of the witnesses a deal that they are immune from any prosecution in the future. This section of the transcript seems to indicate that Anthony Craig was told he would not be prosecuted, however I don’t have a copy of the letter that is discussed here.

Is this a contradiction? Perhaps not. It’s possible that Craig was told he would not be prosecuted on the pornography charge, most likely because there is no evidence of it even though he is admitted to what he had. That is a limited deal that would not, for example exempt Mr. Craig from being prosecuted for other things. To reiterate: this is pure speculation on my part.


Ma’lik Richmond’s attorney Madison hands Anthony Craig a letter of some kind.
