Megan’s Law violations cover multiple crimes

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I know you don’t print too many letters from inmates, but I really need for you to read my letter and feel the impact it would have.

I am on the Megan’s Law registration list, and because of this, hundreds of people have been classifying me as a pedophile, child molester, etc.

I have been in 14 assaultive incidents and everyone turned their backs on me.

The bad part is I am tired of assaults and explaining.

I have never been convicted of any sexual charges with anyone under 18. All of my convictions, two, involve adults. One was for solicitation and another in 2009 for indecent assault.

But because I am on the Megan’s Law list for it, people assume I am a child molester. They don’t know Megan’s law is for offenders with adult victims.

I really need for you to express this by printing my letter to the editor. I have a sworn affidavit and also permission from the warden to write.

Dale Metrocavige,


Lawrence County jail

Beginning tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the NHL playoffs. So, who ya got? And in how many games?

Penguins, in five games or fewer. Too much firepower for the Blue Jackets, especially if Evgeni Malkin is ready to go.
Penguins, in six or seven games. It’s a pretty even matchup on defense, but Pittsburgh will grind it out.
Blue Jackets, in five games or fewer. Sergei Bobrovsky in goal for the Blue Jackets spells trouble for the Pens.
Blue Jackets, in six or seven games. Bobrovsky gives Columbus the edge, but it won’t be easy.
