After 201 days on house arrest and being accused of a crime I did not commit, my charges have finally been dropped. I did not drive that evening. The person who did drive notified authorities immediately after & I still remained charged for over 7 months— Will Burge (@WillBurge) January 17, 2019
To be clear, I know Im not a victim. The woman who was hit is the victim & thank god shes ok. But from the beginning my attorney fought to provide as much evidence as possible to the prosecution cuz the truth was on our side— Will Burge (@WillBurge) January 17, 2019
For those who expressed anger or disappointment with me, I understand. With the info you were given that was more than fair. And for the very few who stuck by me or even just reached out once, I appreciate it more than you could ever know.— Will Burge (@WillBurge) January 17, 2019
With years of prison hanging over my head, ppl harassing my son and the ppl I thought were closest abandoning me, one thing became apparent: I have to use this experience to improve myself as a man and help others. Its a miracle were not dead. I wont waste that miracle— Will Burge (@WillBurge) January 17, 2019
We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.
It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.
A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.
