simply copied and pasted what WSAZ news has reported on their site. I doubt they would stick their necks out and report lies. I also saw it on the noon news report. It is sad, I know, but when it is a matter of public record people are going to talk.

Yeah....I know that now. The information that was passed along was that Social Services had been called regarding any children in the home. It's a little hard to sort out facts from rumor sometimes.

Yes the family has made mistakes, but they aren't bad people. I know them all very well and they aren't big drug slingers. They were only dealing enough to feed there addiction, and make enough to get there basic necessities. Jimmy has been looking for a job for a long time but in this day and age its not exactly easy to find a job. Steve and beth are on disability and are unable to work. Unfortunately disability checks aren't always enough to keep your lights on. So before you start running your mouths about them think about what you would do to support your family if you were jobless. They really are good people and if anyone knows a good lawyer they need one.

Honestly.....I haven't seen too many crazy mean comments on this subject(that's why I looked on here, to be sure nothing really nasty was being spread around). They are really nice people for the most part.....just went in the wrong direction.

Hoping for the best possible outcome. I don't like to rejoice in the pain of others.
I know it is wrong to sell drugs and they need to learn their lesson, but I was just wondering if the dad is taking the rap? I saw on here where he is only being charged with tampering with evidence.
I bet if he had a do over, things would be different. I hope the wrong person doesn't get punished the hardest in this unfortunate situation.
Thoughts and prayers for the extended family and for these 3, who are obviously in need of God's love and forgiveness.

You don't have to assume that someone wears a wire in that area for the police to get a search warrant. Hearsay is considered probable cause when from a reliable source as defined by the constitution. As far as my opinion on reliable, and the police's, that is two different things. I was arrested on hearsay twice on the word of drug addicts, but i can't complain because i was guilty. I am sure that the neighbors, and the traffic at the house was enough. The police wait until they think there are drugs there, by doing illegal cellphone taps and things of that nature, then get a warrant. Beth's daughter has had to grow up with this crap her whole life. I only hope that things get better for her. Stop spreading narc rumors. That gets people killed in prison. For real.
