North Dakota involvement in child sex assault case omitted from news reports

Something is wrong in the George Robert Lyons child sex assault case.
The case of the man that announced his engagement to a North Dakota state prosecutor after he was charged with 1st degree sexual assault of a child, has taken yet another wild turn.
Court files of an extradition hearing held for George Robert Lyons disappeared from the North Dakota state court website after Write Into Action began investigating extensive anomalies in the strange case – and focused on that specific hearing.
Write Into Action contacted a North Dakota judge and Chief Prosecutor about the issue and the files were subsequently re-published on the website.
“If you search the public website now, the extradition should appear. Thank you for the inquiry,” said Alison Fiala, Deputy Clerk of Court, Grand Forks County.
Write Into Action asked why the record was removed in the first place. “The IT department had to complete some configuration upgrades,” Fiala said.
The file is gone again.
The explanation citing ‘configuration upgrades’ seems odd because the ONLY record that comes up missing from the Register of Actions for George Lyons was the January 4, 2016 extradition hearing.
Obtaining court records regarding the Lyons case has been strangely cumbersome for Write Into Action from the beginning.
Lyons is charged with 1st and 2nd degree sexual assault of a child in Minnesota.
Write Into Action initially started asking questions about the January 4, 2016 ‘Extradition” hearing in North Dakota for George Lyons, because the Minnesota website featured no records of the rape case at all, and the East Grand Forks Police Department said no police records could be released because it’s an ongoing investigation.
An extradition hearing is a process of the court required when transferring a person that is in custody, to another jurisdiction.
NORTH DAKOTA LEFT OUT OF ORIGINAL REPORTING
George Lyons was actually arrested in North Dakota – but that fact was never reported by local news – they simply skipped over that part.
Initial reporting of the Lyons case by Valley News Live and the Grand Forks Herald cited “court records” and a “criminal complaint” as sources.
Therefore – both local news agencies possessed the records and were well-informed; but neither news agency told the public what actually occurred.
They completely left out North Dakota from their stories; and an ENIRE DAY is missing.
The Grand Forks Herald reported Lyons was arrested by the EGFPD on January 6, 2016 and incarcerated in Polk County, Minnesota.
According to Grand Forks States Attorney David Jones, Grand Forks County Corrections released George Lyons to Polk County, Minnesota authorities on January 5, 2016.
George Lyons was arrested in North Dakota at some date and time prior to the January 4, 2016 extradition hearing.
The Herald and Valley News literally skipped over the fact that Lyons was arrested and incarcerated in North Dakota. They then published articles reporting Lyons was arrested by the EGFPD on January 6, 2016.
Time may show that was not an innocent mistake.
Evidence shows law enforcement in Polk County, Minnesota are tangled up with child sex traffickers and pornographers involved in the Caylee Anthony murder and HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping. If you want to see what the hell is really going on READ THIS
