Local Man Found in Contempt in High Profile Murder Trial

A Lake Towhship man who served as an alternate juror in a high profile local murder trial is found in contempt. 62 year old Richard Stuck was fined the max of $250 and ordered to pay court costs as well. Stuck had been removed as an alternate juror early in the Chester Crank trial after someone reported seeing him looking at CantonRep.com on his iPad in the jury waiting room. Apparently the witness said there was a photo and a headline about the Crank trial on the screen. Jurors are often told not to read or listen to any media reports related to the case. Crank was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison for the 2007 murder of WWII Vet Benny Angelo.
