Shackled Visitor Has an Impact on Teens


Maraghy, Mary, The Florida Times Union


The tree surgeon from Mandarin, in cuffs and shackles, was

paraded before 650 students in the Mandarin High School

Rollo stood expressionless in front of the auditorium for about

two minutes while Borello explained that supplying alcohol was

he said.

For some, it was too powerful.

"I didn't even want to look at him," said crying junior Kelly

Briggs, a friend of the deceased Emily Moyer. "There's too much

anger. That was hard."

Emily's father, Ken Moyer, showed up at the assembly hoping to

see Rollo, but was too late. …
