    What Tom should or should not have done is no longer up for debate. Tom had already left the state of Ohio BEFORE this matter had gone to the Grand Jury. Tom came back last week to turn himself in and take care of this matter.  However one issue that has not been addressed is his health. Tom has been in the hospital 5 times in the last 6 months, and just had “emergency” surgery 5 weeks ago.
