Everyone knows she had been arrested for this before, yet they still act like the perfect family. Not!

Only know her from seeing her around town but never would have thought she would do something like that ! Her kids will suffer the most from her actions . She will probably only get probation like the rest of the drug users and be doing the same thing she was !

She was convicted in Cherokee County for 8, yes eight, drug felonies and only got probation. This time might not go so easy. May be the only way to get her to go for help is in jail.

Seems like she would be begging for help considering what she's putting her family thru . Not just her husband and kids , but her parents too ! Probation didn't stop her . Maybe time in jail would .

Her husband keeps covering up for her. Her father (the poor 70 year old man) has to keep working to keep her attorney fees paid, bailing her out of jail the many times she's been arrested. I agree, she, as well as, her family keep enabling her. She pure and simply an addictied drug addict. She's been allowed to do this for more than 10 years without ramifications. I bet her actions make her mother and father so proud. The King family had a choice, they could have washed their hands of her, but they too! only enabled her to maintain her addiction. Jail time and their "rehab" programs will be the best for her. I hope (for her children's sake) she gets jail time. If not, her poor old, tired, father will have to keep working until he's dead.

How can she manage a band when she can't manage her own life ? Her husband can make all the excuses he wants to but this has gone on too long he needs to do everything he can to get her off drugs ! The damage is already done to her family and there's no excuse for that ! I only know her mom from seeing her in the office at the hospital but her dad has always been friendly and a hard worker . Guess she didn't think she would be found out by going out of county to buy her drugs when she could have bought them here .

She was scheduled to be in court in Asheville on April 5, 2012 on two felony counts and 2 misdemenor counts. I haven't heard anything yet if she got any jail time. Has anyone heard anything? More than likely, she got probation again. The jails and prisons are overflowing as it is, with durg pushers/users. She just one of many. Wouldn't be surprised if she's already heading to Avery county to try and pass a bogus prescription. Again, I bet she makes her children proud, along with her mom and dad.

Haven't heard anything so far . I'm sure it will be kept hush/hush ! She most likely got a slap on the hand and probation . How many times does it take for these people to spend jail time ? they get put on probation and they are free to keep doing the same thing ! She is a disgrace to her fanily and her community ! The two drug dealers that work at burger king in court numerous times and are on probation but they have plenty of time to keep dealing . I for one won't go to BK because of these two !

No, he is her brother in law. Not sure how close they are, though. I feel sorry for her husband, he is a good person. The kids really need our prayers and support. It would have to be difficult to try to keep problems like this under the table.

Sounds like there are some bitter, angry, ugly, negative people who post on this site. I am certain there are many of us who have done things we have regretted and have skeletons in our closet that we hope never come out. To those of you who have made your negative comments I hope and pray that you do not claim to be christians.

Addiction is a disease and people need help to overcome this problem. So until you have experienced an addiction or issue that is this serious you really shouldn't comment about it. Because one day, in a different time, place or situation someone may be running you and your family down publicly..
Judge not least you be judged.

Concerned, how do you know what these people have been through? You are the one judging people. What is being said just might be because the high and mighty are capable of commiting wrongs as much as the regular person, its just likely the high and mighty try to hide what they do so they can turn their noses up and be judgmental. Is that what you are about? Maybe some people are just tired of hypocrites. Climb down and think before you speak.

Not judging, just stating the facts of the situation. Multiple arrests for drugs, bounced checks all over town, attempts to manage her sons blue/grass gospel group and wonders why the members quit......
