It's about time. We in Gaston have been suffering because of the misdeeds of this man and his cohorts. The town is in a shambles and former friends are not speaking to each other as so many were not willing to believe that their friends would steal from the town. One has to wonder about remorse which appears not to exist. Jessica Poole looks like she is posing for a yearbook picture. I've never seen anyone under arrest looking so happy.

I can't believe these people are stupid enough to smile in their mug-shots. That in itself shows how they still think what they did to this town wasn't serious. Now, the former mayor (a county prisoner) can't cast stones at others, GREAT JOB SLED.

I know all three personally. I can't say that Larry is innocent of all charges, but I truly believe Jenny & Jessica are innocent! The truth will come out soon. Hang in there girls - we love you!

Maybe it's easy for them to smile when they KNOW they haven't done anything wrong intentionally. Jenny has put her whole life into the Town and Jessica was just trying to get experience in the workforce. They both love the Town and what it used to stand for. It's hard for them now seeing all the pain that Larry has caused. He's the one who even looks guilty - like he hasn't slept all night. I just hope the TRUTH comes out soon and Jenny & Jessica will get their normal lives back.

I'm so surprised! Who didn't know that would happen. That man has put this town in debt and cost woody and the rest of the police dept. thier jobs. I wonder who will be the first family member to jump on the forum and proclaim his innocence? Justice is being served. If only we could get Woody back.

I also know them personally. And while i would love to think that Jenny & Jessica are innocent it's too hard to believe that they did not know anything was wrong. They worked to close together.
I hope i am wrong but i doubt it.

Sounds like Jessica is experienced, in stealing.

Stealing in itself is bad enough but to put the finances of a whole town in jeopardy is just plain sick. Throw the book at him or them (as it may very well be.)

Orange is just not a good color on anybody. But then again, I hear the fashion police had to disband because of lack of funds.
