Yes it was in my pocket, stuffed with cash and I had a fresh hot cup of coffee in my hand from the pot they keep out for customers to help themselves from.

Good people usually don't conduct themselves by defrauding potential investors and laundering money. Have they handed down a sentence yet?
Guilty Plea

By pleading guilty it probably makes one think well if I pead guilty to this, that will be it and they won't check back into the previous years misconduct. This was not a one time event people, it will be proven that it had happened before, mark my words. I am sorry for the family because I don't believe they knew there was any wrong doing, just great luck in their investments. Look at Maddoffs son that committed suicide this week, this man was a small child when his father started that con scheme, I can see him and his brother growing up with a silver spoon in their mouth, truly just being rich kids never thinking my dad steals from others, they probably just knew their dad looked like a successful business man and growing up living the life of the rich and famous I'm sure dad didn't sit them down at 15 and say I'm a con man, my investments are fraud, There are some innocent families that get hurt and are as shocked as the public is when the truth comes out. These schemes cause so much pain and people lose their entire savings in some. What kills me is the innocent worker that loses their job and after 15 years no income their home is foreclosed on by these corrupt bankers that are pocketing stolen money the same time they are selling someones house on courthouse hill. A paper trail of many years is hard to follow sometimes and piece back together but this was not a one time inside deal...

A 2% RAISE WHICH IS NOT EVEN A COST OF LIVING RAISE. KENNETH IS THE ONLY ONE THAT GIVE A CARE ABOUT THE EMPLOYEES. NO ONE HAS TO TAKE MY WORD ON IT BUT WATCH THIS BANK SELF DESTRUCT IN THE NEXT 2 YEARS. THANK YOU KENNETH FOR YOUR HELP WITH THIS BANK AND WHAT AN IMPACT YOU MADE ON SOUTHWEST VA. NO ONE CAN DENY WHAT YOU HAVE DONE WITH THIS BANK BUT BET YOUR BUTT THAT THEY CAN SEE IT WHEN YOUR GONE. BY THE WAY NEW PEOPLES BANK YOUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND WORTH NOTHING WITHOUT THE EMPLOYEES AT THE NUMEROUS BRANCHES THAT DOES THE HARD WORK. YOU OUGHT TO BE MORE THANKFUL FOR THE HARD WORKING PEOPLE THAT MAKE THEM PROFITS INSTEAD OF SPENDING YOUR TIME DITCHING A CEO THAT CREATED THE HORSE THAT YOUR RIDING ON NOW. THANK YOU KENNETH FOR SPENDING A LIFETIME OF HARD WORK FOR THE PEOPLE OF SOUTHWEST VA. ONE LAST THOUGHT FOR THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS: NOW YOU HAVE THE TORCH IN YOUR HANDS WITH NO ONE LEFT TO GET BURNED BUT YOU.
Well after all the investigation, its just another Bernie copycat that finally got caught. Good con artists have the game down and if he had set up more than one dummy to buy the stocks and sell, he wouldn't have gotten caught yet. I can't believe he didn't think that someone wanting to buy 500,000 stocks wouldn't have someone smart handling their affairs and would not catch that all the stocks came from the same name , Owens???? Even me just being a low man on the totem pole at a bank would know that would be a RED FLAg. When you've played the game for as many years as he did, it was time to get out, but like movies just one more deal......Greed in wanting more is when you get caught.....

He done plead guilty, not sure what you are getting at there... It was pretty much an open and shut slam dunk case. Judges ignore sentencing recommendations all the time, too.

Sorry that I wasn't clear in my writing --what I was stating is when will the others be charged that are just as guilty. They all need prison time.....
