Explain to me why an senior officer is caught by the ISP stealing over 150,000 dollars and is allowed to retire with a full pention and only has to pay back 110,000. And 3 years probation.....when I personally know people that have stolen far less that has went to prison. Where is the justice

Maybe because he worked a lot of years and earned it? He resigned so he could keep his pension. To answer your other question...maybe he hired a good lawyer?! Just sayin'!

Where did you get 150,000? There's no point of wasting jail space over stealing money that's being paid back. 3 yrs probation and a lifetime worth of police work forced down the drain due to a gambling addiction. What spawned that gambling addiction? That's for him and his own demons to deal with. Obviously that company wasn't hurting too bad. Took them 6 months to notice. If I had someone stealing off me I sure as hell would put a stop to it as soon as possible. Ignorance on their behalf. Plus I'm sure they had some sort of theft insurance so they are getting it all back some way or another!

So you're saying that it's ok to walk into a house, take a person's stuff, get caught, and then not go to jail because you'll give or pay it back?

Or walk into a bank, take money, spend it, get caught, skip jail and simply pay it back?

This is a simple case of the law was broken and he should have gotten some time. Others have done less and got more.

And it didn't take them 6 months to find it missing. Whomever reported that or told you has no clue. It did take several months of investigating by the ISP.

I bet if someone took your money and didn't go to jail and had years to pay it off would make you freaking furious.

Moron, that's what you are

If it was an average joe that stole lets say 10,000 they would go to prison!!!!!! Promise

No, but paying the money back sure isn't being punished. It's not even a slap on the wrist. I bet he's arrested guys who did the same thing in regards to stealing money and most of them did some time. Especially if it was several thousand dollars.

Anymore stupid questions, Moron?

Because of this response right here.

1. He broke the law
2. People who have done less have gotten jail time.
3. Because he's a cop and they are to uphold the law.
4. He made a choice to gamble.
5. He made a choice to steal.

You obviously don't understand that breaking the law requires your suffering the consequences.
That sounds like a moron to me.

Exactly!! Now lets talk to the immates that are setting in the DOC for stealing not even. a quarter of that. Shall we? And futher more the reasoning that he was a cop and served for many years. Should make the punishment that much more serious. Because he knew exactly what he was doing and didn't care. Cause he knew this would happen. And it's public knowledge now. That it was over 150,000 dollars. Sorry but you can hide it when the state and every news reporter in the state is watching and digging. Ohhh and it's an on going investigation by the state not the county. So I wonder who else got a piece of that pie. JUST SAYIN!!!!

There are people that have gotten the book thrown at them for stealing things from walmart in this town. And get more them 3 years probation. And the pension is adding injury to insult. Because it's the taxpayers paying that too. So basically he got to use a county vehicle at his other job to steal and transport this money. Use it to drive to the casino boats live like a rockstar and when the Indiana state police caught him.( because we all know that his co workers won't of said anything) the county swept it under the rug as fast as possible and left the taxpayers to pay it back. Ohh and guess who is going to be left holding the bag when the federal judge cracks the heads of the cops involved in the Snyder cover up. You guessed it. Bend over Frankfort!!!!! Because there is no doubt that her and her family is winning that case. Point blank period.

Wow, I see a lot of opinions on here and they will vary. But the truth is the truth no matter if you don't want to hear it or believe it. And a lie is still a lie even if everyone hears it and everyone believes it.

I believe the large amount that was stolen does in fact warrant some jail time being served. I really don't believe a regular citizen with no criminal record would get the same as this former officer did. That leads us to the next logical conclusion that the Frankfort court system is a very corrupt one and things like this prove it to be true. Corruption at it's highest level. Dirty Dirty Dirty!!!

I'd say a lot of blame goes to the prosecutor. Everyone knows the judge could veto the plea deal, but with the dockets being what they are, it was probably a rubber stamped deal.

Sad that a longtime cop gets less than a bank robber.
