    Nurse Indicted in Toms River Man's Death

    AHA! Seems to make sense to everyone except the detectives and prosecutor.

    It would have been good if an enterprising reporter delved more into the first dismissal and what the Grand Juror actually reported as errors by the prosecutor. That Grand Juror's letter was "sealed" by the judge--thus it may never be made public what actually happened in the proceedings. The goal SHOULD be justice, but to those close to Lorie, we do not believe that is the goal in this case. Thank you for acknowledging Lorie should be presumed innocent. That is one thing I have learned through this process when I read other such stories in the media--accused should be presumed innocent until proven guilty.

    You are correct. Grand Jury proceedings are secret, and I never knew how a Grand Jury worked until this happened to Lorie. What everyone should know is there is NO judge, NO lawyer present during the proceedings. It is just the prosecutor, the Grand Jurors, a court clerk, and whatever witness is testifying. The Grand Jurors hear only what the prosecutor wants them to hear. The defense does not get to present a case to the Grand Jurors, so they make their decision based on what the prosecutor presents to them. The first indictment against Lorie was dismissed because of prosecutorial errors.

    This whole thing really has been truly unbelievable. Because of legal reasons, Lorie cannot defend herself in the media and must go through the legal process which has been a nightmare for her and her family. She is completely innocent of this accusation, and someday the truth will come out. In the meantime, she is being ruthlessly prosecuted, has suffered career ruin, and will most probably suffer financial ruin before it is all over due to the legal expenses in defending herself against one person's accusation. She has been blessed by the support of her family and friends as well as the many nurses and doctors who know she would never have done what she has been accused of doing.

    They have not ruled out the patient's primary nurse because they did not even investigate HER! The police and prosecutor proceeded solely on HER accusation that Lorie gave this patient a paralytic. This has been a travesty for Lorie and her family. She did not give the patient any drug and simply held the man's hand while the accuser "went to lunch". Lorie has been a nurse for 17 years with an unblemished record. The same cannot be said for the accuser. Beware of covering for another nurse and NEVER EVER talk to police without representation even when you know you are innocent because they can twist your words and use them against you any way they can.
