Cleveland Officer Charged with 11 Counts of Solicitation and Prostitution!

Cleveland Officer Charged with 11 Counts of Solicitation and Prostitution!

CLEVELAND, OH – Monday morning, February 4, 2019, a Cleveland Police Officer was charged for solicitation of a prostitute 11 times. Sadly, the court charged the officer with 11 counts of prostitution.

The officer, Sgt. Michael Rybarczyk is 58 years old. Not only is this man an officer, but he is also a veteran. Cleveland Municipal Court issued a summons to Rybarczyk on first-degree misdemeanor charges. Unfortunately, the court did not announce a date for the trial.

The court’s charges lie anywhere between probation and six months in jail. The court charges a $250 fine that could easily increase to $1,000 by the judge.

Sergeant Michael Rybarczyk is a 29-year veteran officer. He is the supervisor of the First District. As of Friday, February 1, 2019, during the Internal Affairs investigation, the court put Rybarczyk on restricted duty.
Rybarczyk is on restricted duty until the case is over.

The sergeant has no former citations. Rybarczyk’s only offense in the past two years were warnings. These warnings were for failure to notify supervisors that he was the sergeant in monitorization of car chases.

Interestingly, in 2012 Rybarczyk received the Distinguished Service Medal. He recieved this award when he arrested two men who fired gunshots at Cleveland Security Guards.

Sadly, they have not released details of the crime yet. Cleveland Division of Police Internal Affairs Unit is handling the case.

Homicides in 2018 One Fewer Than in 2017

Homicides in 2018 One Fewer Than in 2017

CLEVELAND, OH — Just before the clock struck midnight to close out 2018, Cleveland reached its 129th homicide. Three people were killed 15 minutes before the end of the year outside a New Year’s Eve party at an Air BnB. The total of 129 killings is one fewer than the total in 2017.

The Cuyohoga County Medical Examiner and Cleveland police shared the grim total. To compare, there were 130 homicides in 2017 and 135 in 2016. The city has exceeded 100 homicides for the last seven years. This is the first time this has occurred since a 42-year stretch ended in 1996. The death toll at that time was high due to the war on drugs.

Out of the 129 2018 homicides, 114 people (88%) died due to gunfire. This figure is according to police records and the medical examiner.

Five deaths occurred during mass shootings. One mass shooting was outside a bar after a music video shoot. Six were shot in that incident. Another incident happened at a downtown strip club. Eight people were shot. The triple-homicide that occurred on New Year’s Eve is also considered a mass shooting. Two others were shot. However, they survived.

A full list of all of the victims for 2018 can be found here. The list includes 2-year-old Lorenzo Ealom. He was killed after ingesting drugs (cocaine, suboxone, and Benedryl). On the older side of the age range, a burglar beat 94-year-old Eucebia Garcia Gutierrez to death while she slept.

The homicide count may change due to a couple factors. One is that the Cuyohoga County Medical Examiner may rule on several questionable deaths. The number could rise if the medical examiner rules some of those deaths homicides.

Men Arrested in Connection to 2015 Murder

CLEVELAND, OH: On Saturday, police issued a warrant for the arrest of three men charged in the fatal shooting of California man, Nicholas Rowe, in November of 2015.

 

The men: Walter Watkins, 22, Nicho Fulton, 26, and David Dillworth, 23 – all from Ohio.

 

The Crime

According to court records, the men allegedly buried Rowe back in 2015. Officials found his body in the back of an abandoned home. three feet underground, beneath twenty pounds of concrete. He suffered several gunshot wounds to his head. Police spotted a handgun in the yard of the home, alerting to suspicious activity. Then, they brought a cadaver dog to the home to help search for the body.

 

Rowe – also known as Joshua Luckey – was 41 years old. He was from Chula Vista, California. Apparently, Rowe frequently flew to Cleveland to conduct drug deals. He was meeting with an associate on his trip that November, and supposedly paid the associate over 8 grand.

 

After a couple of days, Rowe’s friends and family alerted the associate that he was missing. Officials used a GPS tracking device on Rowe’s phone, which led them to his abandoned car. They found broken windows and blood inside the car. When the associate returned to the scene the next day, he called police. An officer noticed a disturbance in the backyard of the home, where they later discovered the body.

 

Arrests

Officials charged a fourth man, Andrew Watkins, age 23, with aggravated murder for the case back in March.  After his arrest, he pleaded not guilty to the charges. He is waiting on a trial date. Now, Fulton is on probation for the illegal possession of a gun in 2017. Dillworth was also sentenced to a probation period back in 2017, for an attempted breaking and entering.

 

However, it is unclear what is in store for these other men allegedly involved as the case unfolds.

Cleveland Has the Largest Economy of the State

Cleveland Has the Largest Economy of the State

ClevelandCLEVELAND, OHIO – The federal Bureau of Economic Analysis released a data according to which Cleveland has the largest economy of the state’s metro areas and the 28th largest in the nation.

 

The economy grew more than in other areas last year given a number of reasons. Last year, the city strengthened its mining and natural resources industries thus boosting the employment rate. Additionally, the wholesale trade and supply chain, as well as arts and entertainment reported growth.

 

Cleveland’s economy grew by 2.9 percent last year and was valued at $140 billion compared to Cincinnati’s growth of 2.4 percent valued at $138 billion and Columbus’ growth up 2.1 percent valued at $136.6 billion.

 

In spite of this, the economists believe that Columbus will surpass Cleveland due to its population growth. The improvement in GDP is a positive factor, but that doesn’t reduce the economic disadvantages of the city.

 

Bill LaFayette, owner of the economic consulting firm Regionomics, believes that Columbus has more population growth that will create demand for local services. Columbus was highly rated for significant growth in construction, health care, professional and business services in 2017.

 

Ben Ayers, senior economist at Nationwide, mentioned that the economy is when people are productive. The less people, the less productive is the economy.
