The Carlisle Mosquito Online

Friday, February 12, 2010


In a letter in last week’s paper, Laura Baliestiero took issue with a recent Mosquito article (“Carlisle resident summonsed for assault,” January 29). Carlisle Chief of Police John Sullivan confirmed in a phone conversation on February 3 that the details of the Carlisle incident were reported accurately and that Jason Baliestiero, age 23, is being charged (“charged” is not the same as “arrested”).

Regarding the prior arrest in Maynard on November 30, the Mosquito report, based on court documents, was correct in particulars relating to Baliestiero, who faces assault and battery charges stemming from that incident. However, the Mosquito mistakenly identified Charles Young as the brother of Jessica Young, when he is her father. ∆
