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!
MISTAKES?? I don't think choosing to steal is a mistake!! It is a CHOICE to steal because of no morals!

I am a close friend of one of the sons of the Chadwell's and Ike and his wife are honest people. It disgusts me to see the ignorance and jealousy of others.

Everyone is honest until they get caught. What does it matter if you get caught and there is no punishment? Where is the deterrent to stop anyone from being dishonest anymore. The days of a mans word and a handshake are gone.

My sentiments, precisely. With little to no punishment, crime will be encouraged.
I do know Eleanor well enough to speak and she is a very sweet, caring, loving, genuine.. I can't think of anything bad about her. She's pretty, dresses classy, cares enough to walk/exercise good example setter.superb teacher. Ikey is always friendly. Sometimes his appearance reminds me of a mystery novel pic.but hey, that's really cool He did a good job and didn't get the tax dmv stuff. He isn't a prosecuter or nothing of the same., so actually what the punishment was and his opinions on it aren't in the same page.
They are positive thinking people, they would want a young person to get a second chance, blame them for being overly kind hearted and forgiving.

You still need to be held accountable for your actions in some way besides saying " this was wrong" and getting a slap on the wrist and saying " don't get caught the next time.

Unfortunately, this IS Lee County...there will be no jail time for anyone. Only endless probation and suspended sentences. No wonder people joke that if they ever commit a crime they know to go to Lee County to do it since they will never have to do any jail time!

I think that the justice system is terrible no matter where you are, and I do think they should have to pay. Just because they come from wealthy families doesn't mean they shouldn't have to "pay" for their mistakes. Did they honestly think they could get away with it?

actually if the drunk ass man she ran over in the middle of rose hill hadn't jumped out in front of her to try to get some money, she wouldn't have hit him. and the answer to your question- she has had no more than 3 fender benders. woo hoo. who hasn't?

that wasn't a lie.. he was a drunk ass that did walk out in front of her, probably trying to get a little money to support his habbit. why is this any of anyone's business. that was years ago
