Why do you want someone to post it? Have you already read it? Why do you want to humiliate others?

Obviously they wanted someone to post it so they could read it, not because they already had. Ate a big bowl of stupid for breakfast this morning, did we?
And the perps had no shame in trading drugs for food stamps, so why should the be ashamed that they got caught?

FRANKFORT (AP)- A former corrections officer in Frankfort and his wife have been charged with illegally using food stamps that belong to someone else.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that a grand jury in Frankfort handed up the charges Wednesday against Christopher D. Blankenship and Shanda Blankenship.

Christopher Blankenship was charged with official misconduct, promoting contraband and making false statements to receive benefits over $100. His wife was charged with possession of a forged instrument and making false statements to receive benefits

A statement released by the jail said the charges were the result of an internal investigation of the officer which began "months ago."

Naah, They will get a slap on the wrist. Just like that deputy that shook people down, they wouldn't do anything till they caught him stealing their own money & then only made him quit. That state police investigation is just a DOG & PONY show. Nuttin will happen because this deputy knows a lot of dirt. One thing for sure, Meltons political career is over.

He has already done jail time. Sorry couldn't resist that one.:)

If he goes to jail, he might have a tough time based on his prior job.

I saw an ad for job openings at the jail a while back and they paid under $10 an hour. What a joke... I'm about 99% positive this was for a correction officer position too.

Working at the jail is terrible. Billy Roberts is an uneducated and unprofessional. He requires his employees to kiss his a$$ or he gets rid of them. The turn over rate at the jail is very high for some reason.

Because a poster asked if anything will happen to them for their crime & I used melton as a good example because elected leaders of this corrupt town will ensure that their minions only get a slap on the wrist for the same crimes that they arrest & jail others for. Thats why!

That's crazy!! Why would they need food stamps when she is a motel manager and zumba instructor PLUS his income. How in the heck would they even want to apply for benefits anyway?
She thinks she's ALL that??? This town just may think different now. Ya see hun, NOBODY really KNOWS a person...

Yeah I totally agree with ya. I grew up with Shanda. She was a good girl in a troubled home. She was the only one whom did well. But seeing this now makes me think old habits are hard to break. Maybe this will knock her down a few steps off her HIGH HORSE. That she thinks she SHINES down on!
