Probation and Prorole is a second chance. PO oficers should help the clients and not treat them like crap. Franco treated all the clients like crap and threated them with jail. I hope he gets whats coming to him. I also believe the hole DOC and all police in San Juan county should be complety invesagated. There is too much cruption going on that is unbelivable .

He's a dirty cop from Nevada. Seems like another one slipped through the system only to hurt someone else. He treated people like crap and always thought he was above the law. He was ALWAYS out in the field with his #1 sex offender female officer Tina(all day long by the way), who has 2 young children also, and then they say he had no contact with offenders. He was seen with this female officer at her house numerous times late at night when they were supposedly doing their offender home visits. Where were her children then? She is as guilty as he is. They would also wrestle around on the floor in the probation office under the guise of practicing their defensive tactics. What a joke. And Internal affairs turned a blind eye....why? Something smells fishy here. I hope this investigation turns up all the rats involved. This man is agressive, arrogant, a predator, and a danger to society. He has no conscience. "And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him." Reap what you have sown Franco.

I agree that if this guy is guilty, he needs to be held to a higher standard as a probation officer. However, those that are complaining that he was terrible to them when he was their PO, think about this for a minute: You stand less chance of encountering law enforcement, corrupt or otherwise, if YOU'RE NOT BREAKING THE LAW TO BEGIN WITH.

If he's guilty, he needs to be punished to the max, but all you whiners who are complaining that he was "mean" to you shouldn't have broke the law in the first place. Get it?

Mr. Franco was a dirty cop that is a fact. Mr. Franco admitted to having illegal child pornography on his computer and admits to deleting them, which is another fact, regardless on how the courts redress those charges.

That being said, stating those facts does make one guilty of breaking the law. On the contrary, it shows how many people knew of this man's character, to include both current and former DOC STAFF & and CO-WORKERS alike. Many of whom also voiced their complaints that went to Internal Affairs, only to have Internal Affairs white wash those complaints.

People are People, everyone has a price. Some sell out cheap.

Or, as Grandma use to say, "There is a LITTLE larceny in the Best of Us,....there's a LOT in the rest of us".

Innocent until proven guilty perhaps. But it is amazing how sleaze follows him wherever he goes. Perhaps the whole world is against him. Are you kidding me!!! The present time and his past history speaks for itself.
Has anyone bothered to check his military records, if any? Article 15s, reductions in rank, denials of reenlistment. How about the type of discharge, etc.

And why did the jail shut down when he was brought in???? Shut down so no one would know he was there....normal procedure or covering up for one of their own???? And why was the bond set at ONLY $15000.00? You try getting arrested on that charge and get a bond that low....wouldnt happen for you or me!!

Ignore Mr. Franco's supporters. My question is did Dept. of Prob and Parole do a background check on this guy? Or, did they know his background and simply ignore it. What else has he done while employed with Prob and Parole? Criminals policing criminals? And the big question is what else has he done within the Farmington Offices of Probation and Parole, how many of these people did he abuse or there family's.
**Obviously The Background Was Not Thorough Or It Must Have Been Ignored. I Feel Violated!! This Creep Came Into My Home!!! Grrr! My Children Were Home!! UGH!!! Makes Me Wanna Move If Farmington Is Not Capable Of Keeping Us Safe.
