[OH] Ex-police union president Det. Corey Earl blah, blah, blah - gets PLEA DEAL

Brad Dicken | The Chronicle-Telegram
[Excerpts] Former Lorain police Officer Corey Earl pleaded no contest Thursday to a misdemeanor charge of telephone harassment for a series of harassing phone calls he made to his ex-wife. Earl, 47, avoided jail time but was ordered to pay $250 in fines and will be monitored by Oberlin Municipal Court officials for three years. He also was ordered not to have any contact with his ex-wife, Laura Earl.

He said the charges stemmed from a disagreement between Earl and his ex-wife about visitation over the Christmas holidays, when Earl left a series of messages on his wife’s voicemail complaining about the situation. “He got a little carried away,” Wightman said. This isn’t the first time Earl’s ex-wife has brought legal action against him... Earl, the former president of the Lorain police union, also had problems with his on-again off-again girlfriend late last year when he allegedly harassed her with voicemails and text messages. Police investigated, but he wasn’t charged. Earl also had a series of disciplinary problems... including threatening to beat a county corrections officer with a baseball bat, pulling over the ex-husband of a woman he was dating and writing a joke traffic ticket...

  1. Corey Earl is now apparently, after everything he has done (domestic violence, writing bad checks, other crimes), being put in a program that will erase his criminal record and give him his gun and job back.

  2. Say it isn't so!
