Jury Returns Not Guilty Verdict on One Hell's Angel, Still Out on the Other

Late Friday afternoon, March 18, 2011, a Medina County jury returned three not guilty verdicts in the case of State of Ohio v. Justin M. Seliskar. The jury, which got the case early Friday afternoon, is still deliberating regarding the case against Mr. Seliskar's co-defendant, Mr. Scott Stage.

Judge Kimbler instructed the jury on the original charge of Complicity to Commit Felonious Assault, a second degree felony, and on the two lesser included offenses of Complicity to Commit Attempted Assault and Complicity to Commit Assault. Those charges are a third degree felony and a first degree misdemeanor.

Following the announcement of the verdict, Judge Kimbler released Mr. Seliskar on his own recognizance since he still has a felony charge pending. That charge is for Having a Weapon Under a Disability. The two charges were severed for purposes of trial. That charge will be heard at a later date.
