What gets me is that Sheriff now is acting "shocked" that someone has a id card and badge. Those things were handed out like party favors by lots of Sheriff's over the decades. The best knwon case was in Franklin County when Sheriff Earl O Smith "sold" them for a $500 donation.
"Fund" and "Sale" was in the hands of Chief Deputy Lorenzo Farley who was convicted in Federal Court for this organized crime activity.
Over the past decades there were probably thousands of special deputy badges and id cards "handed" out. Usually to those who made donations of goods or services to a Sheriff.
Dispatch should gain access to the badge and id of this guy to see what it looks like and see if card was ever "signed" by a real Sheriff. As it now stands we have to take Sheriff's word it really is fake.
Such activity by corrupt Sheriff's made all Sheriff's and real Deputies look bad.

Retired deputy is 100 % on point! many Ohio Sheriff's had many levels of special Deputies and did give out id's and badges! Some were called POSSI's. Most had no tarining and there authority was having the sheriff's direct phone number!

What is troubling is many Ohio Sheriff's still give a badge and id to many "political cronies" and anyone that will give them $$$$ to run for office on.
And they won't stop doing it. Franklin County is hiding something in that they won't show the id card on TV or let the reporter who did this story have a copy of it. I would bet they make it go away via a shredder etc.

Maybe it was a "Merry Marvel Marching Society" badge! I have one! Marvel comic books sold them back in the 1960's.

"Well your Honor, we're only seeking a $10,000 bail. We don't consider him a risk to society, after all, he sincerely believed that he found a teenager who was interested in sleeping with a 71 year old."

Pro-tip: If you're above 40, and you find a teenage girl online willing to sleep with you,*AND* you don't look like George Clooney, you probably aren't talking to a real teenage girl.

On a serious note, the low bail likely reflects his age/health. He can probably only barely get around.

He can also probably only "barely get it up". I wonder if they checked him for Viagra in his system like they did that state rep Mecklenborg who got busted in Indiana.

I also wonder if they didn't want to house him in jail because of health issues.

If he's out of jail, medicare takes care of him.

In jail, the county has to pay his medical bills.
