Charges Against Dow Dismissed/ Kear To Be Charged

Kear To Be Charged
Charges were dismissed for an Austin man who was jailed last month on the allegations of a 21 year old Ulysses woman. The woman is facing charges of giving false statements to law enforcement authorities as a result of written statements and interviews with State Police that falsely accused the man of crimes that resulted in his incarceration.

On November 7, 2009, Patrick Daniel Dow, 29, of 237 Route 607, Austin, PA was jailed as a result of an incident in the driveway of his home in Portage Township involving a 21 year old female, who police did not identify at that time.

As a result of the woman's allegations at that time, State Police released the following report: "The incident occurred as the female and Dow became involved in a physical altercation. Dow grabbed the female by the arms and held her to the ground. At some point during the altercation, Dow slapped the victim across the mouth with an open fist. He also punched her above the eye with a closed fist."

"The female suffered several lacerations to her lip and mouth area."

"After a brief struggle, the female was able to get free from Dow and return to her vehicle where she locked herself in the car. Dow then jumped on the hood of her car as she was attempting to drive away."

"The female backed out of the driveway with Dow still on the hood, while he kicked her windshield, telling her he was going to kill her and then himself."

"Dow rode on the hood of the female's vehicle for about 2 miles, when he finally let go and she was able to drive to safety."

On 11-7-09, charges of: Terroristic Threats; Unlawful Restraint; Simple Assault; Recklessly Endangering; Criminal Mischief; Disorderly Conduct; and Harassment were filed against Dow through District Court 55-3-01 by Coudersport State Police.

On 11-8-09, Dow was arraigned before District Judge Barbara Easton and bail was set at $50,000.00. Dow was placed in the Potter County Jail when he was unable to post bail.

On 12-22-09 at 12:30 pm, the Pennsylvania State Police investigated an incident where it was determined that Katlyn Marie Kear, 21, 528 Grove Street, Ulysses, PA, did intentionally provide law enforcement authorities with a false written statement while knowing it not to be true. Within the provided written statement and in subsequent interviews, Kear did wrongly incriminate Patrick Dow.

At that point, the charges were dismissed against Dow and he was released from imprisonment.

Charges against Katlyn Marie Kear will be filed with District Judge Annette L. Easton in District Court 55-3-01. Those charges will include Unsworn Falsification To Authorities; False Reports To Law Enforcement Authorities; and Fictitious Reports.

Finally they find out that the woman was lying. Do you know how many times a guy gets charged with this crap and it isn't true.....sorry Ladies but this one wasn't at the mercy of the courts...she got burnt and deserves it. Unfortunately he spent time in jail for nothing....she should get time in jail now for as long as he was in there plus a little bit more. Lying will get you no where!!!

So where are all you smart mouths now who had lots to say when they thought this "story" was true. Maybe now you'll keep your smart ass comments to yourselves till you know the whole truth. We forget innocent until proven guilty. Now don't start jumping all over her now either. She needs help, just hope she gets it. Patrick still needs help with his addictions. But that is up to him, not you nothing to do jerks.

It is not neccesary to swear, you can get your point across without using swear words!

Yeah....false statements....she beat herself up. Maybe the pictures should be posted! No one knows the whole truth! I guess if you are drunk and don't make completely accurate statements because you don't remember ...where you really beat up?...of course he was not drunk or high either...go figure. Hope his daughter meets someone just like him when they are 15 so they can teach her the right path to follow.

Way to go Pat. Now may be you can change those door knobs so she'll quit walking into them and stop blackening her eyes.

There must be something in the water in Ulysses that effect the women in that town.
She is not the first one up there that has been untruthful in statements the last few years.

But as the old saying goes, "Once a woman beater, ALWAYS a woman beater." Pat is still NOT the innocent one. He could have avoided any type of confrontation with Katlyn, but did he? No he just added more fuel to the fire. So, Yes, I'm glad Pat was sent to jail. Maybe next time something like this happens, he will think twice before engaging. And Yes I agree Katlyn should also be sent to jail for false reports.

Saw this coming !! Not a surprise that Pat keeps getting off

Does anyone here know the whole truth? NO!! I wouldn't run your mouths without knowing what the hell you are talking about. For all of you that say YEAH KATLYN WAS PROVEN TO BE A LIAR.. WRONG!!! She stood on the stand in a court room where the assistant DA was not only and rude when she asked to read a statement..whom was supposedly representing her so she indicated " I will testify for the defense" and did so accordingly. Was she in the wrong that night.. ofcourse she made poor choices and was so drunk she was carried out of the bar in less than ten minutes this happend. On the stand she indicated that she was not sure if she initally hit Patrick or not. She was too drunk and her memory was vague. Does that call for him to be dismissed? Does that mean that by hitting someone your door handles and wiper blade arms get torn off? Does that mean you get dents on the side of you car? She may have made VERY POOR decisions but for charges to get dismissed is BOGUS! Guess none of us have ever gotten drunk to the point that our memory was vague and better hope your children never do either.. they just may get blamed for stuff they didn't do either. Everyone also fails to mention everything she said on stand was told to two police officers prior to trial. One of which denied under oath! This is not for the JULY incident where she was beaten so severe either, LETS SEE HOW THIS ONE PLAYS OUT!!!

Ya gotta love Austin one soap opera after another !

Uh Oh! Did the press get ahold of this story when it was already too late? Hmm! Maybe the press got this before they were supposed to. I would say don't believe everything you read... Guess we will see how this pans out! Charges dropped against who? We will find out in the near future where this will truly lead. Will Pat still get his? I think so. Don't judge anyone until you see how this plays out. There's more on it's way! :)~
