AG: Office has no power over Maryville sex assault case

Tuesday, 15 October 2013 14:16 Published in Local News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri attorney general's office says it has no power to reopen an investigation into allegations that two teenage girls were sexually assaulted by some boys at a party.

The case is drawing renewed attention after The Kansas City Star published the results of a seven-month investigation into the case in Maryville.

Melinda Coleman says justice was denied when Nodaway County authorities dropped charges in 2012 against the boys who her 14-year-old daughter claimed had sexually assaulted her and a 13-year-old friend.

County officials say the case against the boys fell apart because the Colemans would not cooperate. Coleman denies that.

A spokeswoman for Attorney General Chris Koster says Koster's office lacks the authority to review a local prosecutor's decisions in particular cases.

East St. Louis Firefighters avoid layoffs

Tuesday, 15 October 2013 13:04 Published in Local News

14 East St. Louis firefighters will keep their jobs after the Firefighters Union and city officials reached an agreement over past due wages.

Mayor Alvin Parks says the firefighters agreed to take a deal that cuts a quarter-million dollars from their back pay. 14 firefighters, or about 1/3 of the city's force, had been targeted for layoffs on September 30. Union and city officials delayed the cuts until October 15 while they worked on an agreement.

Parks says he will use the $250,000 in savings to keep the firefighters on staff.
