How did that “Diversion ” sentence work out? (May 14th 2013)

ELYRIA — Former Lorain County Community Action Agency Director Robert Gilchrist pleaded guilty Monday to four felony counts of illegal voting, but those charges will be dropped if he completes a year-long diversion program.

The program gives Gilchrist the chance to emerge from the long-running controversy over where he voted in four separate elections without a criminal conviction on his record.

“As long as he’s successful, this goes away,” Anthony Baker, Gilchrist’s attorney, said……………………..

………………..Baker had been preparing to argue that Gilchrist was singled out for prosecution because he is black or because of his association with former Mayor Tony Krasienko, who was defeated in the 2011 Democratic primary. He contended that people who had made similar voting missteps in previous elections weren’t prosecuted.

Will and his office had repeatedly rejected that argument, saying they were pursuing a violation of the law that had nothing to do with race or politics. They also pointed out that not every issue brought up by Baker was referred to prosecutors by the county Board of Elections.


Wonder what this latest Gilchrist “Diversion” this will take?

October27th 2014

Robert Gilchrist, a former Lorain service director and ex-Lorain County Community Action Agency CEO and president, faces drug charges after a traffic stop.

Police said they found four packages of suspected marijuana in a vehicle driven by Gilchrist about 8:35 p.m. Friday. The 44-year-old Gilchrist is due in Oberlin Municipal Court today facing charges of trafficking in drugs, aiding the sale of schedule III, IV or V drugs, possession of marijuana and impeding traffic. He was being held without bond at the Lorain County Jail on Sunday night.

Quite the Monday morning “diversion”-

    An idiot does not change his spots…I remember when I challenged his voting…his men saying I had singled out the black man..and dennis flores saying…” I don’t see any white robes here”…it made me sick..playing the race card…when there was the proof he was deceitful in his voting….and all he got was diversion program…this is why I have lost all confidence in voting…there was no justice…so why even have the voting rules to follow. He is a fraud,,in life and in practices…

    well I had to write something to the ct…”.In the CT today “Police said they found four packages of suspected marijuana in a vehicle driven by Gilchrist about 8:35 p.m. Friday”. Well why am I not shocked. I took him to task regarding voting fraud and all he got a slap on the wrist and to complete diversion program. When I was at the BOE meeting regarding my challenge of Gilchrist’s fraudulent voting…others such as councilman “Tim Howard” was busy at his computer sending out messages to his men to attend that meeting. Here is what Mr. Howard sent out:

    Date 2011.07.28.10:34

    “Good morning all as some of you may or may not know this afternoon at 4 o’clock the Board of Elections Robert Gilchrist will be having a hearing on what they are calling voter fraud. This in our minds is an attempt to discredit one of our people again with bull crap. If any of you have been watching the political climate here in Lorain lately it’s not pretty. Back in May Chase R. broke a FEDERAL law by working for the city of Olmsted Falls and running a campaign, I say again a Federal law and we didn’t see him going up for any hearing in front of the Board of Elections. All that being said we need to show some support for Mr. Gilchrist this afternoon by attending this hearing and watching the bull sh—process unfold..etc….Thanks for your support! Tim Howard”

    Frankly I am sick and tired of the race card being played out. What is Mr. Howards’ message now huh? Still going after one of their own? In my opinion Gilchirst is a fraud in well as in practices.

    and here is the latest of bobby talents….

    “He stated he found the U.S. Postal bag in a bathroom stall in Oregon, and he was going to do somebody a favor and drop it off at FedEx,” Lister said.”

    Gee..who else traveled that Oregon trail….didn’t know it ran so close to home…and I guess not his.
