That's why Chadwell is a treasurer and not the attorney general-he's clueless about the crime against the people of Lee county...even though they made it right, that is only part of the restitution. The two, at minimum, should be convicted and have a record, so they never hold a job of public trust. As for ikey joe, he should resign -not because of the crime in his office-but because he doesnt see the wrong or harm to the county...the people of the county trusts him with the treasury??

I think Ikey has suffered memory loss. He seems to forget about the teenaged girls that broke into his home and stole a vcr, etc., nothing valued near 6000.00 , one was Ott Cowden's daughter, and Ikey did NOT give them a second chance nor worry about their futures. He took them to court. I guess he has double standards when it comes to the people he serves, and his own money/posessions. Was it his son that left a door open at Ed's grocery during business hours only to come back after hours to steal and be caught? Yes And the same son made bad decissions and a man from Dryden lost his life. How can we get him removed from office, fired? He doesn't deserve a chance to resign, he has maade a lame attempt to cover up a crime

Isn't it interesting that when one goes to the courthouse to pay their taxes they are told to write the check out to Ikey J. Chadwell, NOT to Lee County Treasurer's Office...I rest my case, 1984Hokie...

I am acquainted with of the 2 females. It takes about 30 seconds of talking to her to know she has "mental problems" so did Chadwell have his head up his A** or was he just looking at her usual low-cut shirts when he hired her?? And before i get slammed on this one--I KNOW HER (unfortunately) and most others do not! Besides being a mental case, she is dumb as as a stump too and should never have been working there to begin with!! Too bad she got busted in Lee County--she will get nothing but endless probation!!

I do not know either. Exactly what are the qualifications to work in that ofice? When I got robbed there aka paid taxes, the kids there were hs graduates. I'm not cutting them down, actually quite proud of them.Was one of them some relation to IJC? Does anyone think they have learned their lesson? I sure hope. They are young and should pay back, etc. and get on w/ their lives. We All make mistakes? True? Stupidity or ignorance is not something that needs punished, but fixed!
