Ziegler: No more reports to court

Seeks early end to probation to work as truck driver

January 27, 2013

WARREN — A man who was associated with the shuttered Sunset Lounge, and whose felony conviction and probation stint left the door open for city officials to label the business a nuisance, now wants......

How convenient to get a CDL license to get out of his probation. Liker Becker stated then, he could go do the time in jail and not worry about reporting. First of all if he just got his CDL license, chances of getting a over the road job driving is very slim. Most companies require or want 2 to 3 years over the road experience, before they will hire you. But if he has had a CDL prior to this motion being filed, why now is he wanting his probation lifted. That should of been discussed at his sentencing, not now. This is just another ploy, and a very cleaver one to get out of his regular sentencing. Criminals will say or claim anything, to get out of court ordered probation. He has already been proved that he lied about about hidden ownership in liquor establishments. So why should any judge believe him now.

I agree with Becker. 3 years of reporting or 3 years behind bars, which would you like?

Maybe he is trying to obtain legitimate employment and move on. Why not give him a chance?

What reputable company would hire a convicted felon to begin with? NONE Why would the court show leniency to an individual with multiple violations of the law? THEY SHOULDN'T

Well, what should be and what is in the matter are two different things. This is Warren and I won't be surprised if he get's everything he wants. Sorry but it is the TRUTH based on what other DEALS that I've seen take place.

Hopefully the Judge in this matter will "require" the trucking co. to submit proof that Zigler was "indeed" hired as an "over the road truck driver".If this is just another case of trying to "deceive" the court, then simply give Zigler the 3 years in Jail and put this farce to bed once and for all.

The trucking industry is highly regulated by the federal government. What company is he working for? Trucking companies have to hire people after background and drug testing. As a point, any convicted felon would find it difficult to obtain a passport and most long haulers have to get a passport or be eligble to get one. Some even have to be investigated by Homeland Security....depending on what they haul. This story of why he can't report has a lot of wholes in it and I certainly hope someone in the court system really investigates the entire situation. It just doesn't sound right.

Zig, keep your head up and I pray God begins to shine so light your way. It's not Zig's fault that these thugs choice to commit crimes in his establishment. Do we blame the owners of banks when they are robbed? I don't think so. Furthermore, I can't believe time was spent writing this article aimed suppressing this man. And for the person who's said it's Obama $s. It's President Obama. Have some respect!

We should all remember the 3 marine recruits who were killed by a Strimbu (TRL) driver!! From what I've heard the driver had a record and he was hired by them, so maybe that is who Ziegler will work for since this trucking company doesn't seem to care who they hire and pay them just a little over minimum wage!!

I wonder how much it cost that trucking company in fines and settlement? And that is not even considering the loss of life to those young men's family and friends. There are reasons for rules and regulations--whether it be in the trucking industry or, for example, the running of an establishment with liquor licenses. It is better to follow those rules and regulations than have loss of life, loss of two good jobs someone worked hard to obtain, or pay high fines and settlements. And yes, the world isn't all squeaky clean, but you better have all your ducks in a row when something goes wrong with your under the radar world.

He violated his probation period! Time to man up to his faults. Do not pass go take your sorry behind to jail.

Am I the only one who thinks truck driving is perfect for drug trafficking?

Looks like Zenith along with every other moron who has no job & life is jealous to see a black man prosper in spite of set backs. There is no reason why he shouldn't be allowed to earn a living and move on with his life. You racist dung holes are the very worst of human garbage. Just because you don't hire black folks doesn't mean others are equally as dumb. Cleveland is a world away from Warren Ohio where it concerns respect, equality and opportunities for all. The rest of society is up to speed!
