Orange Juice Blog Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Vern Nelson has it out for Anaheim’s Lorri Galloway since she accused him of sexual assault months back.
Vern continues to undermine Galloway’s credibility when he’s really the one with the problem. Nelson left a comment on this post at the OJBlog; he writes:
Nelson’s credibility for telling the truth is shakey at best. On Valentine’s day, Nelson has a court date at 8AM to turn over any firearms he owns stemming from his April 2016 arrest for his fifth DUI which is classified as a Felony. For a guy with no clear means of stead gainful employment, if he owns guns I’m not sure how he could afford them and do you want someone with his drinking problem possessing a firearm in a home where small kids are present?
A blog comment yesterday here suggested Nelson was sentenced to three years in jail. That’s true, as it turns out.
Nelson was sentenced on January 16, 2018, and the sentence was stayed and he’s on three years probation and must enter an 18 month program for chronic alcohol abusers. Additionally, he needs to spend 10 days in jail and another 4 days in jail in lieu of a fine (which was unspecified). It’s not clear if Nelson can serve his jail sentence concurrently. And it’s also not clear if he’s served it yet or when he will.
Here’s the paperwork:
Nelson owes the employees of Eli Home an apology for his false statement. He owes Galloway an apology for much more.
And when it comes to credibility, I’ll take Lorri Galloway’s lifetime of public service as an elected official and the executive director of a battered women’s shelter over a 5 time convicted drunk driver who was called “lecherous” to women by his own managing editor.
