Woman acquitted of assaulting Rapone

A woman accused of assaulting Lawrence County’s treasurer when he was working as a Penn Power employee has been acquitted.

Fawn Cox was found not guilty Friday of charges of aggravated assault and simple assault by a Lawrence County jury. She was accused of attacking Richard Rapone, Lawrence County treasurer in a 2006 confrontation.

At the time of the alleged incident, Rapone was employed by Penn Power and had shut off electrical service at Cox’s home for failure to pay her bill.

More details on the verdict will be found in Saturday’s edition of the New Castle News.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
