Are the two young men arrested yesterday the ones that burned the barns? Noticed Joshua Haddox and Russell Sowers charged with 2nd degree Arson in the Paris detention center.

They need to find them all and punish them all accordingly. They and/or their families need to be held responsible for restitution and they need to do time. Serial Arsonists almost always end up taking human life if not stopped.

19-21 is plenty old enough to know better. Try them as adults. To do less does not do them any favors. If you pat them on the wrists they will reoffend and the only thing you accomplish is that you have additional victims in the future. If you agree speak up. You know law enforcement, the prosecutor, and judges read these posts.

When the parnets are held for the action of an adult,what is opening a can of worms.The two should have to pay the price for what they have done.And, I agree a slap on the hand is not the right way to handle them.But,we live in Nicholas County.

Who said anything about the parents? They are not responsible. Those young men are adult age. They should go to prison. If the parents are allowed to pay restitution those young men will learn nothing. I experienced having a 17yo rip off my motorcycle, take it to the hills and ride it in the mud until the fins were caked in mud and the pipes were destroyed. Not one day in jail, his grandmother paid restitution. A year or two later he was sentenced to 3 years in prison for another crime. All the restitution accomplished was restoring my monitary loss and allowing the boy to commit a new crime on another victim.
Quite possibly some in between that he was not caught committing.

19 and 20 year olds are adults! Anyone 18 or older is considered an adult!

Sorry, actually I did say prior that they/their parents. I do not think that the parents should pay the restitution. If the young men go to prison then restitution should be part of their sentence. If they do not go to prison and have to pay restitution as part of their sentence and they assign only restitution there is no way to know who comes up with the money, as in my case. Grandma should not have been saddled with that. It satisfied my loss, but knowing he did not earn money and pay it back made me angry.

I agree with you! They should make restitution or serve the community in some way! The parents or grandparents (if they are good parents) should make them accountable. This way they would learn a valuable lesson and get on to a productive life! It's a win win situation!

Public Service might work if these two are the remorseful types. I don't get that feeling looking at the one's booking photo, smiling a cocky smile ear to ear. He might need to do some actual time in prison to learn anything. I take it the third young man's crime had to do with an auto theft and Arson and is not connected with the two, but the proximity in time to their crimes and the nature of his, Arson, makes me wonder. They are close in age and no doubt know each other. If he only had to pay money he should at least be followed closely by the parole system.

I highly doubt that either one is remorseful, they committed the crime time & time again, if they had any regrets they would not have set the second fire. I say, if proven guilty let them serve time, not community service, thats what is wrong with this county, everyone gets chance after chance. Law abiding citizens are being victimized every day. I, for one am sick of it. I do not know the whole story but if the third criminal stole a vehicle, he deserves time as well.

doubtful, I could not agree more. Someone will likely be hurt or killed by them if they are dealt with leniently. That has been my experience without fail. I know what it is like to be victimized and it does not feel good or heal quickly.
