So much for the small bussiness loan that they applied for , and all this work and they will turn it over to our prosecuter , who in turn will cut a deal and have a plus mark on her record , lets see , 6 months probation and 10 days community service , reasonable ? NO WAY

"In addition, Tyler is accused of giving an undercover agent he thought was a corrupt banker $99,980 to invest in businesses and place in bank accounts"

Maybe not so smart after all.

Legalize marijuana. This is just silly. Tax it, monitor it the sales like we do with alchohol and tobacco, the we will have more room in our prisons and court systems for rapists, child molesters, murderers and burglars. Plus we will get the tax income and we will help irradicate the whole underworld created from the illegal sales of marijuana.

(Oh, and I don't even smoke it.)

If they would leganalize marijuana they could pay off the national debt in 5 years with the tax money generated. If the legislators are too stupid to see that then more power to guys like these.

How can y9u say Kevin is a good man. This idiot destroyed lives and families with his product. He rode around in the finest of cars, traveled the world, nice home and spoiled himself off someone else. He should have gotten a job after his last stent in prison. He should have instead of opening up a club (Elite Lounge), car washes, beauty solons and whatever else he is doing with this money, gotten a job and paid taxes. He is and always will be a drug dealer because he knows nothing else. If he was so smart he should have know that, that drug dealing game is not a successful business. Some how some way you always get caught. I personally think all guys need to stay in jail forever.

What does that have to do with anything? Judge a person by his actions, not people to whom he or she is related.

they should keep peoples names out of the paper, for the sake of their kids and families and they should respect the fact to stay anonymous untill their found guilty. Thanks 4 your openness to accept comments.

Doing something fr the community? What is he doing, keeping people hooked on illegal narcotics? Making himself rich off of other people's addictions?Yeah just what Akron needs, more people like him keeping the city down.
