Assault victim deserves justice

Posted: March 5, 2014 - 4:48pm

Is anyone else questioning the delay of the Resetarits trial? The young man assaulted in September 2012 deserves better than to have this go on and on, without any accountability. It has been more than 17 months since he was assaulted. He was undeniably assaulted, the photos clearly show the details.  

Judge Margaret Murphy and lawyer Moberly are a bad combination when it comes to justice. Homer, pay attention, don’t let them abuse the victim as they have been known to do before. This young man deserves justice, he has waited  too long already.

This newspaper has failed in it's duty to inform the public of what is happening and why there has been no accountability.

Perhaps they think people would be outraged to know that the perps will be enjoying their freedom together in Hawaii shortly. This article is from the peninsula clarion...

"On Feb. 18, a status hearing for Joseph Resetarits was held at the Kenai Courthouse. Joseph Resetarits, who lives in Anchorage and participated telephonically, requested the court’s permission to move to Honolulu, Hawaii to attend an Emergency Medical Technician program at the University of Hawaii Capuano Community College.

State Prosecutor Kelly Lawson said she was concerned with allowing him to move to Hawaii because his brother lives there. She said Anthony Resetarits had been seen drinking at a bar, despite his court order to not consume alcohol and she is concerned about the brothers violating court orders by living together.

The court lifted a waiver of extradition, allowing the brothers to move out of state to attend college. Bauman said there is no requirement of supervision of the brothers because the court did not assign a third party custodian.

The alleged victim’s mother, who participated telephonically in the hearing, said she doesn’t understand why Joseph Resetarits needs to go to Hawaii to enroll in an EMT program.

“I’m not comfortable with both of them back together,” she said. “I don’t trust him. There will be no supervision to keep them in check and that bothers me.”

Joseph Resetarits was enrolled in a firefighting academy in Louisiana but moved back to Alaska. He said he has looked for EMT training in the area but would prefer to live out of state because of the party incident.

“It is hard to live here,” he said. “A lot of people know about this.”

State Prosecutor Kelly Lawson said she "was concerned with allowing him, Joseph Resetarits, to move to Hawaii because his brother lives there. She said Anthony Resetarits had been seen drinking at a bar, despite his court order to not consume alcohol and she is concerned about the brothers violating court orders by living together."
Where is Homer's judicial accountability for the male underage victim of 2012? This young man has suffered at the hands of the well- documented- disturbed Resetarits brothers. Now the brothers are together in Hawaii with no requirement of supervision because the Homer court ((Judge Margaret Murphy) did not assign a third party custodian. Homer Judge Murphy and Resetarits lawyer Moberly are making these allowances for these men to carry on without any consequences. Who will be their next victim? Who will be Murphys and Moberly's next victims?
