How can anyone not see that the victims would have obviously been in fear of immediate serious bodily harm when the guy ROBBED a bank? Thumbs down jury

VERY lax reporting, P.O.
Once again.

Who.
What.
When.
Where.
WHY.

Thus, WHY was it decided he committed a Felony 2 and NOT a Felony 1 crime?

WHY??

If your reporter knows that he took the stand, then what were his statements explaining the WHY in why the jury made their decision?

That info is not in this news story.
that explains it

I guess this is why everything in the court system gets watered down sentences and dropped charges since a jury won't convict a guy who ADMITTED to robbing the bank!!!

My thanks to the jury in this case... thanks for protecting the rest of us citizens from this dirtbag.

So what the victims say the felt was not of any importance to the jury? Seems to me thats all the proof one would need. Im certain Mr McNeal will be in the headlines again, and we can thank that jury if it happens in the time frame that he should be in prison.

I know this dirt bag from the Franklin County Jail where this low life currently resides. He is by far one of the largest nuisances in the facility. He undermines all the rules of the facility and given the chance will assault any staff member. This individual should be thrown in a state facility and forgotten about. The only solace that I take is that he will undoubtedly become someones bitch when he enters the state system. I am sure his family is very proud of the miserable scum they have produced.

Dear "someones sister" I can assure you that neither I nor anyone in my family ever robbed a bank or did any other highly illegal activity. On the bright side for you however it appears that your brother bamboozled the jury into giving him a reduced sentence that he most certainly did not deserve. It is a waste of my time to discuss this further with you however as I'm sure people of your caliber wouldn't understand it anyway. Take solace in the fact that the next time your brother decides to break the law you can blame others for his actions as I'm sure you and your entire family has done all along. The real victims of this crime are the people he terrorized, not Mr. Mcneal as you would like to believe.

tinman im not condoning what he has done and i am very upset that he done such a terrible crime i dont know why he did what he did. i do however blame him for his stupid actions.... my dad who was shocked that he stole his truck and came down here to do that tried to help him so did i. i gave up... but my only anger is that the name calling is hurtful to his other family members that are not involved in his life or turned their backs on him.... i however havent spoke to him or seen him since a yr ago when he moved south.... its hard to hear or read these name calling when i dont know half my family and i dont have family here... yes i agree he deserves what he gets and i know first hand that he cant be trusted but im not gonna sit here and call him names...his done this to himself but reguardless of the stupid crap his done im still his sister...

Wow..I'm almost sorry I looked at this page. First of all I would like to apologize to all the employees at the bank. I'm Charles' mom. I wish I could turn back the clock to the days before this happened and change them but I can't. Charles was doing so well. Looking forward to moving to Alabama with his dad. So many things started working against him. Our economy hit bottom, he was turned away for jobs, had fines to pay, no one to help finacialy, everyone was telling him that they were struggling to make ends meet. Friends he cared about were unable to put food on the table, pay their rent,water bills etc. He couldn't even help himself but wanted to help others around him. The reason they only found him with $500 was becasue he gave it all away. Matt & Cory got more than $100 by the way. His girlfriends mom got over $3,000. Where is that by the way? There is more than one person responsible but that doesn't matter now. However: if Charles' relationship with his probation officer would have been more professional this may not have happened.But thats just my opinion.
My heart goes out to mothers everywhere that struggle with the sins of the children.

wow MOM... i really dont think you can blame his probation officer for this and blame friends for not providing food for him how about maybe his mom who turned him away and wouldnt listen... or maybe showed you cared. dont blame the economy for it either.. u cant just push kids out into the streets and expect a happy ending. charles needed someone in his life and you of all people shut the door in his face!!! tell that to the people why dont ya. dont make it out like your a sadden mother who lost control of charles.... you shut him out and didnt care about what happened to him and why...well cuz you had it better and you walk around thinking that!!!talk about sins of children.... how about sins of parenting???

Don't you dare trivialize what this scumbag did. He commit a bag robbery you idiot. How do you think the employees and customers at the bank felt? People with husbands, wives, and children. People in fear for their lives. I get so sick and tired of every time a heinous crime hit the papers and the criminal is revealed there's always one or two people who pull the "well nobody is perfect" card. Screw you you liberal scumbags. You're represent all that is wrong with this nation and YOU should be sitting in the cell right next to McNeal.
