I'd be willing to bet that he'll see no jail time. They will probably misplace this case somewhere along the line and nothing will come of it.

Personally, if convicted, I think he should receive the maximum sentence. He's an officer of the law. They should be held to a higher standard. Unfortunately, most officers have no standards now a days so we shouldn't be too shocked at this report.

I agree this guy won't see jail time and some "wanna be Judge" that is called a Magistrate will run the statutes on this one.-- This is just like most of the good ole' boy system that exists here. Until the citizens demand that "guys" like this police chief are put out of business and behind bars --things will not change. This is a community/state of "being a big fish in a small pond".

I love the reference about Magistrates not being real judges! That couldn't be more true. They have no training, education or background. All they have to do is run and get elected, lol.

Does anyone know if a judge can order you or a member of your family not to contact police or report a crime that has been committed?
