OGDENSBURG – Republican District Attotrney candidate Mary Rain will continue her AccountabilityTour outside the former home of murder victimBernard Trickey Jr. Tuesday morning.
Rain will bejoined by members of Trickey family.
No case personifies my opponents failure more than the murder of BernardTrickey Jr. Rain said. Three times my opponent tried and failed to convict thealleged murderer, Wayne Oxley. Three times my opponent failed to deliver justiceto the Trickey family. Well, Nicole, three strikes and youre out- its time for newleadership in St. Lawrence County.
Rain added, My opponent says I shouldnt stand with victims during a politicalcampaign. I could not disagree more. I stand with victims every day. I am running for district attorney because my opponent does not stand for victims- she stands for excuses.
The voters need to remember the stories of these victims - everyday people living their lives who, in the blink of an eye, became victims of a crime. All they want after that moment is one thing, justice. My opponents failures directly caused the one thing this family deserved, justice. My heart goes out to this family and countless others who have experienced the same unacceptable and heart wrenching results, she said.
My Accountability Tour is about these victims. They shouldnt have to stand up andsay they didnt get justice. It is a DAs job to secure that justice for the victim and their families, she added.
And I want these families and the people of St. Lawrence County to know that the next family who experiences a crime when I am District Attorney will get the justice they deserve.
