Eric Bodenweiser Arrested

   Former candidate for the 19th state senatorial district, Eric Bodenweiser, has been indicted and arrested.

    Bodenweiser faces 113 felony counts, 39 charges of first-degree rape and 74 charges of unlawful sexual contact in the second degree; all charges involved a minor.

   According to the cape Gazette, Bodenweiser turned himself into the Delaware State Police and was arraigned in Superior Court and was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $250,000 secured bail.

   The alleged crimes took place between October 1987 and August 1990.

   Bodenweiser was the GOP nominee until rumors of these allegations began to circulate, forcing Bodenweiser to first disappear from the campaign trail, then suspending his campaign, then actually officially withdrawing from the race.

  I hope that our many visitors here who were upset that we would not put voice to the allegations now understand that due to the seriousness of the allegations, it would not have been prudent to spread a rumor.
Also remember that charges do not mean guilty, only that there was reason enough to bring charges.
I would also ask that we all remember that there are many lives at stake here.
