However, I've been contacted privately from someone in Stephen Gressett's camp, who was our initial article for this thread. They have respectfully requested that I post the following and I will honor this:

    In related news, charges against controversial BJJ instructor Gene Simco (spelling?) seem to have fizzled after much discussion. He pleaded guilty to a minor charge which basicly was letting a minor (14) have alcohol while at his house (while apparently her parents were also present).....

    True, because he was already innocent.

    Okay, I just got back from Milbrook New York and here are the results.

    1) Gene Simco was originally charged with two misdemeanor charges. Sexual Abuse in the Third Degree and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

    2) Tonight Simco pled guilty to Endangering the welfare of a child. A violation of P.L. 260.10 which is an A misdemeanor. The Sexual Abuse Charge in the Third Degree Charge was dismissed.

    3) I have a letter from Ken Benzinger, Esq who is Gene's lawyer repeating what he said at the time of plea and sentencing which is that the plea reflects Gene's contention that "he never had any sexual contact with the complainant" (When I have time, I'll retype the entire letter)

    4) Gene says that he is pleading guilty to the charge of endangering the welfare of a child because he admits the 14 year old complainant had access to alcohol at his house and was drinking it, and he (Simco) did not take the drink from her. He also says that her parents who were at the party did not stop her from drinking either.

    5) Simco received a conditional discharge. (If he does not get re-arrested he will not serve any time). He is paying fines and court costs of $455. There is also a five year protective order forbidding him from having any contact with the complainant/victim.

    Only in the eyes of the law. Innocent means he didn't do it. That may not be the case here. I am just commenting on how his "camp" made Gene post this as a sort of "AHA see he didn't do it." But that document does not show he is innocent, just says he is not being tried (yet?)

    why were the charges dropped ?

    a lot of times that happens because they were not real in the first place.

    I dont know one way or another in this case as i have not followed it. but the reason for the charges being dropped is important as to whether he is truly guilty.

    if they were dropped because they were never true, well....

    OJ was found to be not guilty. That doesn't mean he didn't do it, it means the state couldn't prove their case to that jury.

    He is still innocent because to only way to not be innocent is to plead or be found guilty of a crime.

    Again all of this has nothing to do with if he really did it or not, and only he knows for sure.

    It also happens alot because the "complainant" doesn't want to testify against her assaulter because of emotions (either scared or "in love") I wouldn't trust my 9 year old in his MA school.

    Also, there are lots of difference between a 9 year old and a 14 year old.

    That's no excuse for fooling around with a 14 year old but many girls by that age are alcoholics or drug addits with 3/4 years sexual experience under their belt. I mean you see a girl with a beer in her hand that looks 20....some people, especially those that have a few drinks themselves, don't think about asking for ID!
