Justice Kilbride pulls ad over Terronez investigation
A source close to the case says the allegations center around a 19-year old junior college student and a 17-year old high school student, both under the legal drinking age of 21.
Mr. Terronez Thursday said he couldn’t comment on any investigation or allegations.
A spokesperson for Supreme Court Justice Tom Kilbride confirmed Mr. Terronez’s taped endorsement was edited out of his campaign commercial late last month. A new version without the States Attorney began airing October 1.
Kilbride spokesperson Aaron Chambers released this statement to News 8 Thursday:
”Upon learning of a possible investigation, we removed Mr. Terronez from our campaign materials. As a father of three daughters and as a grandfather, Justice Kilbride is outraged by the allegations. As a Judge, however, he respects the investigation and has faith in the justice system to handle this matter”.
A family member of one of the girls says State Police have been involved since early September.
