he asked for sex from an 18 year old....adult....nothing wrong there, but the moment he offered money, he broke the law. I think it's pretty minor and a 25 year veteran should not have been made to resign....a much lesser penalty should have been called for.

What a corrupt joke.
Santos is described as a "good police officer" by Prosecutor Cummings.
So in Madison County, Indiana, "good police officers" can moonlight as felons.

Hold on here! Cummings, a Republican, is no longer prosecutor in Madison County. He was replaced by the liberal electorate in January by the "DEMOCRATICS". They are now serving up justice in a fashion that Cummings predecessor did for years. Watch for more examples like this.

As an officer of the law, let me say that I find it appalling that someone in my profession would solicit sex from a prostitute. I certainly hope, for the sake of justice, that the light sentence wasn't imposed simply because the defendant was a police officer. What a great miscarriage of justice that would be.

I must, however, disagree that we, as police, should be held to a higher standard in a courtroom than non-police. I don't believe that I surrendered my rights to equal protection under the law when I was sworn in.

I find it unfortunate that a police officer would be given a "pass" from the justice system. I would find it equally unfortunate if an officer was dealt with more harshly than anyone else would be.

My job as an officer of the law does not make me better than anyone else. It does not make me more important than anyone else and it certainly doesn't make me more popular than anyone else. It simply makes me the enforcement arm of the laws of society. If I break those laws, society should deal with me the same way they deal with everyone else. Fairly, justly and in a timely fashion.

Even the most corrupt of criminals get their day in court. Rapists, serial killers, molesters, murderers and yes....police officers who solicit prostitutes.

Deal with one the way you would deal with another.

If an officer is given a free pass...the system fails.

If an officer is given a harsher sentence...the system fails.

It's that simple...and that complex.

This girl is not a protitute. Santos tried to get close to this girl through the mother first. She asked him to live her alone and he did not comply. This man was married and had children. Sad, sad.

Young girls in Alex have been warned about this man for the last 20 years.

Doesn't Santos have a prior issue dating back to the late 70's or early 80's? Is this a new issue?

When I worked for CETA in Ohio in 1982, a V.W. County Sheriff's Dept. stole my social security number and used it to track every place I gained employment and bad mouth me (all of his buddies were in on it) I know because I was the secretary and they identified themselves. In the long run I could never keep a job, Unless it was voluntary. And 2 decades later they used my s.s.n.'s to steal my fathers assets from 38 years at G.E. to become Millionaires all the time messing up my records, and trying to make me appear insane. Police are often bullies by nature, in my experiences. And they always have access to your s.s.n.'s. Of course they were the most powerful people in the county, and no lawyer would help me, just them. Everybody is against having identity implants, but I can see where they would have helped my when my identity was stolen, to identify my protagonists as not me in court. And since I have had to live on welfare after having two children. Nobody cared! Not locals, not FBI, not state officials. At least in In. you have state police.

Why should he be held to a higher standard. By law, we are all held to the same standard. If you don't like our legal system, go someplace else.

what about alexandria city court that was ordered shut down by the Indiana supreme court in which the judge resigned after the fact. She was being investigated by the Indiana supreme court for Repeated erros: adminstration,constitutional and ethical erros. Why was she not charged? after all she was under investigation and under oath. what happened to this story in the paper. again why no charges
