Paul Tucci visits Laura, Alex Rideout in jail
Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - One week after being acquitted of murder and tampering with evidence in the Craig Rideout trial, Paul Tucci was at the Monroe County Jail.
Tucci visited his girlfriend, Laura Rideout, and her son Alex in the jail Wednesday morning. Both Laura and Alex were convicted of tampering with evidence; Colin Rideout, another of Laura's sons - was convicted of second-degree murder.
On his way out of the jail, Tucci talked with 13WHAM's Amy Hudak about the visit. He maintained Laura is innocent of murder and that Alex is innocent of the tampering with evidence charge. He said the jury got it wrong.
Tucci added that he did not visit Colin.
Laura, Alex and Colin are all scheduled to be sentenced on September 1.
