Sigh.... you say that you believe nothing without evidence but then exactly what are you purporting to support here if not denying the facts in evidence. Read about this case. There are a ton of articles. Read the court transcripts. This lousy rich kid hid in ambush and used a rifle to kill-shot a young man. He confessed. Then daddy used his money to twist the system resulting in a plea that allowed him to admit guilt to manslaughter and be sentenced to time served. The Prosecutors also had evidently wished to spare the key witness another round of personal attacks of the vilest nature. Ragland then lost a multimillion dollar civil suit and moved to PA to evade garnishment laws. Not to mention his multiple DUIs in multiple states. His lack of consequence is appalling. The only thing scarier is what that socialpath will do next.
I'm not denying anything. Ragland was guilty as sin.

If you'd pay a litter closer attention, the "no evidence" comment I made was specifically referring to someone's allegation that the appellant judges were paid off by Jerry Ragland. That is what I said there is no evidence of, therefore I have no reason to believe it.

Ragland got a great defense because he could afford it. The prosecution blew it when they said in their closing argument that Ragland chose not to testify, therefore he must be guilty. That's reason enough for an overturned conviction.

Reality Check, maybe you were part of the Ragland Defense Team? The statement above would seem innocent enough to someone without legal experience, but in a court of law the defendent is not required to testify, and that lack of testimony is not to be held against him by the jury.

My understanding is, not only is not testifying not supposed to be held against the defendant, whether or not the defendant chooses to testify is not supposed to be discussed in front of the jury. That's where the prosecution messed up. Add that to the FBI agent who admitted lying on the stand, you've got grounds for an overturned conviction.

No, I'm not part of the Ragland defense team. I couldn't be a defense lawyer knowing someone was guilty. He got a bunch of lucky breaks and the prosecution bungled the case.

Didn't know OJ Ragland was back in town!! He's a dumbas$ just like OJ. Give him time and enough rope, he'll hang himself!
With his arrogance, he will be back in the news soon. His ego will not take a back seat for long.

It is so odd to see him around town eating or shopping. I used to like him but now my opinion is much different.
Ohhh yesss

Not saying that murdering someone is OK, but Trent D shouldn't have been sticking his nose in other people's business. He is partly to blame for his demise.

Wow, we have a lot of judges in the city of Frankfort! Judgment is reserved for the Maker, not the sinner. I believe that God will have mercy on anyone who asks for His forgiveness. Before anyone "casts a stone", think about the following scripture: "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." Luke 6:36-38
Here are some other scripture to chew on: "The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly."
Proverbs 15:1-3
"I get my knowledge from afar; I will ascribe justice to my Maker."
Job 36:2-4

Just a thought!

I have known Shane and his family for 20+ years. They are NOT the mega-millionaires people want you to think. In fact, Shane's Grandma lives in a modest neighborhood in a modest home.(Hardly the dwelling of the "Super-Rich.") In order to secure Shane's release while he awaited trial his Dad cashed in stocks, bonds, and sold assets. This was NOT a man who happened to have a million bucks just lying around in his home safe like the media would have you believe.
What people fail to understand it that our legal system has STANDARDS. When you convict someone with shoddy and/or questionable evidence and the conviction is overturned it has nothing to do with the financial state of the Accused. Had the State of KY prepared their case better and relied upon solid evidence to secure a conviction we would not be having these discussions. Shane did what EVERY convict in this State does; he APPEALED. It just happens that in his case there were enough questions raised about the Prosecution's evidence (and in the case of ballistics those questions were raised by the State's OWN people!!) to allow his conviction to be overturned. Since the State no longer had a strong case they offered him a deal- Manslaughter with credit for time served. Shane wisely accepted that deal and is now free because he completed his sentence.
If you really believe that Judges etc. can be BOUGHT, you need to be protesting on the court house steps and not on Topix. Our Justice system is flawed, but there are people with NO money behind them that walk out of prison everyday in this State because their conviction was appealed and they won that appeal. Shane's case is not that unusual and his Dad's money had nothing to do with his freedom. Facts are facts, and even Jerry Ragland doesn't have the power to manufacture those.

Hang in there Shane and keep your chin up. Your church family loves and supports you 110%!!

The murder was on the show called Sins and Secrets about two days ago. No one knows where Aimee Lloyd is today but thank GOD she told. That is correct, his daddy has money and when you have money, anything is possible. Now if this had been someone else, drug dealer, black person, etc., they would have been sent to the electric chair. I do not blame the boy's parents for suing him. It is a shame he got off.
