Student arrested in BB shooting of bus window

WEST CHESTER TWP. - An 18-year-old Lakota East High School student was arrested Tuesday and charged with firing a BB gun round that shattered a rear school bus window.

The driver of the bus and four students onboard - three 12- year-olds and a 7-year-old - were not injured, Police Chief John Bruce said.

Timothy Tiemeyer, of West Chester, was charged with five counts of felonious assault and one count of vandalism, Bruce said.

A 17-year-old Lakota East student who accompanied Tiemeyer was charged with a drug paraphernalia offense unrelated to the shooting, the chief said.

The shooting occurred about 3:30 p.m. on Blue Bird Drive near the intersection of Kinglet Lane.

Eviction hearing for Bristol's Club canceled

LEBANON - An eviction hearing for Bristol's Show Club & Revue, set for Tuesday in Municipal Court here, has been canceled and the case could be dismissed this week, a court employee said.

Further, the strip club is asking a Warren Common Pleas judge to rule that the club possesses a valid five-year lease for the premises at 1009 Lebanon Road, Monroe.

The club, open in the Warren County section of Monroe since November 1994, has generated controversy over its nude and nearly-nude dancers.

Professor gets 5 years in child porn case

A former part-time professor at University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music will spend five years in prison for downloading 28 child pornography images and videos onto his computer.

Michael Luebbe, 50, of Clifton, told court clinic evaluators that he was curious about child pornography and "looked over the fence."

His attorney, Mark Krumbein, described Luebbe as a brilliant and well-liked professor, saying his client was a Fulbright Scholar who dedicated his life to teaching music.

"It doesn't take a Fulbright Scholar to know this is not a victimless crime," Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Ethna Cooper told the man.

Luebbe pleaded guilty Nov. 10 to 28 charges of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a juvenile - images and videos of child pornography he downloaded over a period of three to four months this year.
