The charges were all dropped against Daniel R. Pattie. He was falsely arrested, and his name was cleared. Please feel free to check the records.

The Kent Patch is so quick to report, but not so quick to undo damage they may have brought to a persons name, even when it is brought to their attention. I have written two e-mails to Matt Fredmonsky and the Kent Patch in regard to the false arrest of Daniel R. Pattie. He was cleared of all charges from this arrest. The Kent police dropped all charges, and were in the wrong. However, I never have seen an article published about that. Great job Matt Fredmonsky, you are quick to muddy a persons name, but do nothing to clear it up. We have asked you to follow up, even offering my phone number to tell you what actually happened, but no response. Yet, your article will follow my son, as to anyone that googles his name, will find your article. I urge you to clear his name on this site. What ever happened to innocent before proven guilty. Your Kent Patch just wants to throw the book at whomever! Might I suggest you find your sensationalism, not on students, but on real criminials.
Debbie Pattie March 04, 2013 at 09:02 PM
Matt Fredmonsky, I am still waiting for you to contact me. It really would be nice to get this cleared up!
Steve March 05, 2013 at 03:15 AM
The police did not drop the charges against your son. A simple review of the public records shows that the prosecutor's office ultimately dismissed the charges, which certainly doesn't mean your son was falsely arrested. Six days after the prosecutor dismissed those charges against your son, your son plead guilty to underage consumption in a separate case. Are you going to blame Matt for that as well? The media routinely reports arrests, which are public record. The media does not, understandably, always report the thousands of cases when a defendant hires an attorney and gets certain charges dismissed. Your son can have his record expunged in the future. Why you're bringing more public attention to his arrest, I cannot understand.
Debbie Pattie March 05, 2013 at 05:49 PM
Steve, who is afraid to use your last name, do you really think that the charges would have been dismissed if he was not falsely arrested? The Kent prosecutor would have never given up the extra revenue, had they had a case against my son. That alone should tell you something. You or Matt have no idea of what really happened that night. My point was for this to follow my son, due to bad police work, is ridiculous. I never "blamed" Matt for his article, as I figured he receives his information off police scanners, or goes daily to check arrests. I simply was asking him to remove the article, so this does not follow my son, as it was a mistake that he was arrested in the first place. I still am more then willing to share with Matt what actualy happened that night, and how the Kent police were in the wrong. As far as the second charge, is it not ashamed a 20 year old can fight in wars, vote, pay taxes, and have babies at any age, however they can't have a beer. Give me a break! Bet you were an angel, and never had a beer before turning the magic number 21. Not sure where your interest or anger came into play here, but my comments were simply directed to Matt, asking to have this article removed. Your input is really not appreciated.
Steve March 05, 2013 at 06:16 PM
Debbie, you chose a public forum to gripe about the Patch editor, so i have every right to give my input in response. You obviously do not know how the legal system works if you believe that the dismissal of a charge means that someone was falsely arrested. Having said that, I have no idea whether your son was falsely arrested. If he was, that is a shame, and the police department should apologize to your son. But Matt never said your son was guilty. He simply reported that your son was arrested, which was true. Whether your son was rightly or wrongly arrested, an arrest is public record. Reporting arrests it is not sensationalist journalism. All newspapers report arrests, and journalists cannot be expected to follow-up on the outcomes of thousands of court cases each year. If the police department issues your son a formal apology, I'm guessing Matt would report it.
Debbie Pattie March 06, 2013 at 12:59 AM
Steve, I had no choice but to use a public forum to try to set the record straight, as I e-mailed Matt twice, but had no response. I also did not say you did not have a right to give input, I simply stated it was not appreciated. You are right, I do not know how the legal system works, as I did believe that dismissal of the charges was the same as dropping them. Had I realized that, I would have taken this to a jury trial, to make sure the false charges were completely dropped. I thank you for that information. The police department absolutely owes my son a formal apology, you and I know that will never happen, so Matt will never report it. I also never stated that Matt said my son was guilty. I know he was reporting from the police records, which only shows what the acting police officer puts in a report. I realize the Kent police have a tough job, however they need to control their adrenaline, and find out correct facts, before making a mistake like they did in my son's case. Due to this article, he will most likely have to explain with every job interviewer, who googles his name. I realize that reporters don't follow up on all their stories, however when contacted about a wrong, a follow-up would be in order. All I was trying to accomplish with my post, is to make a sincere, honest effort, and ask Matt to have this article taken down. Not sure why there is such resistance.

helicopter parenting at its finest, your son will have to live with his mistake, and his mommy pleading his case when potential employers google his name. life, deal with it.
Andrew Polcyn March 06, 2013 at 05:34 AM
Where are the other parents wanting this article deleted? Don't they care about their kids and how a google of their name will ultimately ruin them when it comes to applying for employment because of a misdemeanor? And then we get the same tired argument of "Well if at 18 you can fight and die for your country, surely you can drink then." You arm kids with a weapon at 16. Should they be allowed to drink then? </sarcasm>
Yuberniz Yubi Orengo March 06, 2013 at 06:39 AM
Honestly, if they could just AVOID PARTIES WITH UNDERAGE DRINKING IN THE FIRST PLACE, Helicopter Mommy up there wouldn't have to try to set records straight, or any of the other parents for that matter. Seriously, it's not that hard. Why does it seem like every student's idea of a good time here is underage drinking that has an inevitability of getting caught? My group of friends seem to survive without it, our idea of a good time is a board game night in the basement of the student center, and my legal age boyfriend imbibes a dark stout every now and then, what the FUCK is wrong with these kids? Oh and I don't care if they're 18, they're still children if they freaking act like it, and mommy has to come to CLEAN UP THEIR MESSES. It's not even a case of raising kids right anymore or environment, I'm Dominican, we drink cervesa like water. I had sips of wine on New Years, but this is kids getting SLOSHED out of their minds and getting arrested for idiotic antics. I iwhs my peers had more sense than this. IT'S FRUSTRATING HOW MUCH I SACRIFICED TO COME TO THIS SCHOOL, MY FAMILY, MY MONEY, AND I'M BASICALLY SURROUNDED BY GRADE-SCHOOLERS WHO THINK MONKEY-SEE MONKEY-DO IS COOL. No one is doing anything constructive about this, and I don't even know how someone can anymore. Throwing them in the clink doesn't do anything, posters don't do anything, lectures don't do anything but incite giggles. You can't tell me this is ok.
Debbie Pattie March 06, 2013 at 08:23 AM
I kept my postings to the point, not one of you know what really happened that night, so to judge is a mistake on your part. As I stated earlier in a post, the prosecutor would never have dismissed the case, had the officers been correct in their actions that night. It is apparent that you silly saly, Andrew Polcyn, and Yubeniz Yubi Orengo have no lives if you must sit around reading posts on the Kent Patch that have not a thing to do with your lives, I am sure there is something more educating to read then this. Call me names such as "Helicopter Mommy" if that is what makes you feel mature. I simply stated facts. If you kids can't realize that employers do look up crap like this, then you are mistaken. My point is, a false arrest should not follow anyone. I would not be a good parent if I did not care. Hopefully you kids have loving parents also. Now how about cracking some books! Oh and by the way Yubi, your drink is spelled "cerveZa", and your parents should have taught you not to use the "F" bomb, especially in public writings. It seems to stay with you, if you hadn't noticed.
silly sally March 06, 2013 at 08:29 AM
give it up. you have no idea.
Andrew Polcyn March 06, 2013 at 01:01 PM
Before I get ready for work, I'd like to thank Debbie for explaining how people should comment on stories. Commenting on posts that have nothing to do with my personal life makes me not have a life. I didn't realize there was such a rule. But then again, I was one of those responsible college teens that didn't get in trouble for underage drinking. And if I did ever, my parents would not have fought to keep my angelic image. No. They would have instead told me, "Sure you screwed up, we can help you, but you made your bed, now you can lie in it." And thanks for the compliment of calling me a kid. I know I look young for my age, but I haven't been at the "kid" stage for a good 25 years now.
Teresa K. March 06, 2013 at 02:40 PM
Debbie: did Daniel reside there and was it his party? Has your son emailled Matt / editors and asked for the article to be removed? If you are so concerned with clearing up the charges: you dont need MATT to do it. JUST WRITE IT HERE. If anyone googles your son's name, this page will come up with YOUR side of the story, too. lifes pretty simple.
Debbie Pattie March 06, 2013 at 03:24 PM
Your writing speaks for itself Andrew. Aslo if he were at fault, I would not be spending my time on this, because I am a parent that would say exactly what you felt your parents would. That is the point, he was not at fault. What part of that do you not get? In fact, don't bother answering that, because I do not care what you have to say. As far as calling you a kid, I apologize, us old folks have a habit of calling anyone younger then us a kid. My parents are in their 80's and I am still called a kid by them. It makes me smile! It was not meant to be an insult to you. I am sure you can catch your own parents calling you a kid. I also am not telling you what stories you can comment on, I simply was stating there must be something more important to you, then writing about something you know nothing about. I guess reality tv makes a person's life everyones business. Life use to hold a value in regard to respect for neighbors, "He without sin, throw the first stone". Well with that said, if it makes "young adults" happy to try to tear down others, and not realize that the police are capable of making mistakes, then enjoy the police state that this country can turn into. God Bless all of you, and I most certainly hope you don't find yourselves in a similar situation, because remember the police are always right. Right!

i'm sure mommy will be sitting right next to him, holding his hand during his first interview, ready to explain it all.
Debbie Pattie March 06, 2013 at 04:16 PM
Teresa K., thank you for your sensible post. I was amazed at the negativity that came my way, by just trying to reach Matt at the Patch. No, Dan was not having a party at the house. However, there were parties all over the street. It was the first weekend of the school year.The boys at the house are mostly seniors, and knew better, they had the doors locked so strange kids would not come walking in. Four of the kids arrested for drinking, were on the sidewalk and not even in the yard, which is stated in the police report. One was on the edge of the grass. The police made no arrests from inside the house. They actually went around the back of the house, opened my son's window, separated the blinds, and began to question him about what was going on out front. They had him unlock the front door, when he did that, one officer put their foot in the door, my son asked if they had a reason to do this, and at that, they pulled him out of the house, arrested him, and charged him with obstruction of justice, and a nuisance party violation. Later we were told by the prosecuter that Kent had to pay $90,000 in overtime that weekend and they needed to get revenue. It was obvious in this case, that is exactly what they were doing. The arresting police officer actually lied and said his first contact with Dan was on the front lawn, and did not report how they pulled him out of the house. The charges were dismissed, which I took it as dropped. I now wish we took it this to a jury trial.

thanks for the life lesson, debbie. i'm a parent, also, so with that credibility mentioned, let me respond with a little advice. for starters, take 2 steps back from your grown college-aged child's life. stop calling him every day. same goes for texting. make him get a job and pay for things himself. let him fail and allow him to work his way out of whatever mess he gets into by himself. why are you even arguing about this on here? it's your son's issue, not yours. if you and all of the other helicopter parents out there don't end this madness, you're gonna end up with 40 year-old children who rely on you for every financial and relationship failure they experience. and those failures will be all. your. fault.
moral concerned kent historian neighbor man March 06, 2013 at 04:35 PM
were you there? how do you know the truth? kids who are caught drinking underage lie to get out of things. but not your son, right? god, just let it drop already and go visit your youngest child's school, just to make sure they're allowing your child enough time to finish his/her lunch today...
Yuberniz Yubi Orengo March 06, 2013 at 05:10 PM
Ok the woman who apparently thinks it's just fine to argue online defending her angelic baby's cute little mistakes is saying I have no life. Cute. Sorry if I want to read up about what's going on in my community and keep getting articles like this. In your opinion it's a false arrest, but why do I get the feeling that you know absolutely nothing about your child's life and seem to believe everything they tell you? My point IS that employers won't have anything to look up on me and like-minded students because we're not idiotic enough to even be around such events. And I imagine an f-bomb or two isn't really going to block me from employer prospects, unless the employer is so high strung (which I imagine wouldn't be someone I'd want to be employed by anyway, lest my life be miserable. Yes money, but what about quality of life?) My parents don't have to clean up my messes, I don't make any, nor would they if I did, and I have the best parents that I could ever ask for, sacrificing a lot for me, and I try to take as little of their help as possible, hoping they can do/treat something for themselves for once one day. And btw, it's funny that you'd be correcting me on how to spell a drink's name, sorry if I only read labels on alcohol every once in a good while, maybe that's why I don't know how to spell it, desgraciada.
Yuberniz Yubi Orengo March 06, 2013 at 05:12 PM
Thank you moral concerned kent historian neighbor man. Thank you.

Mr. Moral Concerned, you think and write like a child! Your not worth responding to.
moral concerned kent historian neighbor man March 07, 2013 at 02:40 AM
it's "you're", not "your". obviously you're not doing your son's homework for him...that's a step in the right direction. learn your grammar, mama!
