Prosecutor: Henry's a 'lowlife'
Edmondson won't apologize to Bengal
BY MARK CURNUTTE | MCURNUTTE@ENQUIRER.COM

Kenton County Attorney Garry Edmondson on Thursday called Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry a "lowlife" and said he doesn't think he owes anybody an apology.

Edmondson on Monday had told reporters that Henry had failed a drug test, then later said results were "inconclusive."

His office has yet to issue any statement about the test results.

Henry's lawyer said Wednesday that test results show Henry is clean, and that he is owed an apology.

On Thursday, Edmondson said he's "shocked" anybody would be sympathetic toward Henry.

"This is a lowlife not worth the attention," said Edmondson, who made the comments in an interview with David Wells, The Enquirer's editorial page editor.

When told of Edmondson's comments, Marvin Frazier, Henry's New Jersey-based agent, said he was disappointed.

"I'm very upset about everything he said," Frazier said. "This is America. You are innocent until proven guilty."

Henry did not return a message left on his cell phone. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis declined to comment.

Edmondson told reporters Monday morning that Henry failed a drug test and violated his probation in Kenton County.

Later that day, Edmondson said the results were "up in the air. Some say he did (fail), and some say he didn't. It's inconclusive at this point."

Henry is randomly drug-tested as part of his probation in Kentucky and Florida. The receiver is on two years' probation in Orange County, Fla., for a felony gun conviction. He is on probation in Kenton County for allowing a minor to drink alcohol in his hotel room.

Two recent Henry samples initially screened positive, so they were sent to state labs for further analysis.

On Wednesday, a Kentucky government agency announced that its analysis of a sample Henry provided for the state of Florida showed Henry is clean. Also Wednesday, Henry's lawyer, Robert Lotz, said the results of the test Henry took for Kenton County showed the same.

Edmondson said the attention devoted this week to the Henry story is "partly my fault, no doubt," but he also blamed Lotz.

Edmondson said it all started Monday morning, when a Channel 12 reporter approached him and said Lotz had "acted kind of hinky" when he was asked in passing how Henry was doing.

Edmondson then told the reporter that his office had received word the previous week that Henry had failed the two preliminary tests.

"So I told him that the rumor around the courthouse was that he (Henry) had failed a drug test," Edmondson said.

The story was posted, and Edmondson said by the time he got back from lunch on Monday, there were several television cameras waiting for him.

"I was shocked," he said. "It was off-handed."

And he partially blames Lotz for the situation.

"He's (Lotz) the one who actually set it up when he acted 'hinky,' " Edmondson said.

Edmondson said he has no remorse and feels shocked "that some people are actually feeling sorry for this guy."

In January, Henry served two days of a suspended 90-day sentence after pleading guilty to allowing a minor to drink alcohol. He can be sent back to jail for the remaining 88 days if he violates the terms of his parole in Kenton County.

"Unfortunately we only got him on a minor charge," Edmondson said. "He should have been in jail for all the other things he did.

"I wanted the 88 days hanging over him," Edmondson said. "I thought we'd give him a taste and a chance to straighten out, but he didn't. He went straight to Ohio and was driving without a license."

Henry was ticketed in March for driving on a suspended license, failure to use turn signals and a seat-belt violation.

"I've been ignoring it," Edmondson said. "It's over. I've got important things to do and this isn't important."

You said it. A sign of intellignece in a sea of idiots.

It astonishes me that people still make excuses for him. "It's society's fault", "The Devil made him do it", and "He's being profiled". If this were some average joe on the Street this would've been settled, nobody's would've cared, and would've been just another then-and-gone story in the news.

Some of the article 'comments' even stoop so low to play the race card. How can anyone with a brain be so ignorant?

If anything it would appear he's been given more slack than the average citizen. Anyone else would be in jail now. In general, pro athletes get away with 10 times the crap they get busted for.

Why should people feel bad for Henry?He's a victim of his own stupidity.

He makes his own choices.He chose to give two underage girls alcohol.He chose to drive without a valid license,not use a turn signal,or wear a seat belt (all against the law in the state of Ohio).He chose to carry unregistered guns on him in Florida.

Nobody made those choices for him,nobody forced him to be so stupid.It's all on him,it's just sad that most of the people in that area can't see that.

A typical Bengals fan response (there are almost 500 of them on there now)....

I think Edmondson's comments are ridiculous. If the minor misdemeanors Chris has been charged with and found guilty of makes him a "lowlife," then a lot of our young people in his age group fit the same category Edmondson places Henry..."lowlife category." If most people look back on some of their conduct during their teenage years, college days and even into their early 20's, there probably are some things that most people may not be proud of, but that doesn't mean you would fit the "low life" category. I bet Edmondson has done some things in his past, that if someone were to scrutinize all of his youthful behavior, he may find that he fits into the same category he assessed to Henry. The comment was uncalled for and Edmondson does owe Henry an apology. Doubtful, it will be forthcoming from someone who appears to be extremely arrogant.


"Minor misdemeanors"......this is obviously NOT the parent of an underage female. Marv fits in well here.

To be honest Chris Henry got off cheap from Roger Goodell. Only suspended 8 games for the 2007? I would have thrown his sorry ass out of the NFL for life. Along with Pac Man.
