Mr. Thibodeaux as more and more charges against this pervert, Merrick are filed only very close die hard mislead friends and family will continue claiming what a good innocent family man and coach he is. I think you and LNO do a fantastic and accurate reporting job. I am a personal friend of the parents of one of his rape victims and we are looking forward to the trial and finally justice with this monster finally taken off the streets. Mason Dougherty I feel sorry for you because very soon your’s and Merrick’s world and life will soon change drastically. I don’t think Merrick will last very long in prison, convicted child molesters don’t seem to have a very long life expediency, and as for you I just hope you haven’t burnt too many bridges.
