I am John's girlfriend. I have heard and ready everything that has been going on with this whole thing. John has never been violent. And he has a job back home in Florida. And for someone who is suppose to be so violent that's why he never touched his ex when she decided to hit on him. John is a very good hearted person and would do anything for anybody if they asked him too.

As it is stated Mr.Riffle was pushed-not beaten- he fell and broke his prior injured wrist.Mr.Riffle and Mr.Shiffner both had been drinking and ingaged in mutual combat.Mr.Shiffner is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.If you live by the sword you'll die by the sword.Court is not ajourned.Mr.Jay your name calling makes your statement weak -n- meanless.Grow-up or Shout Up.Mr.Riffle's case has not been proven beyond reasonable doubt.

John isn't a volient person.I don't think he really meant to hurt anyone.They were all drinking that night.I don't think that there should be to much to this than what it is made out to be.I think if one got charged they both should have .Cause both of them hit each other and there were more people involved in the situation than just John and Craig that was egging the fight on probably.John would have not of hit Craig if he wasn't provoked to do that.I have never known of John being volient to woman or men.John is a very good guy if u need help with something he would try and help you if he could.John liked going out singing karakoe on the weekends and having a few drinks.There has been times i have been with him to bars and he never tried to start a fight with anyone there.So i think there is more to the story than what is being told.

Just so as everyone knows. When the courts are involved it is out of anyones hands. Obviously This man did something wrong. There is Proof and The LCSD did everything they could to find this man so that this Family could be brought to Justice. I just hope that this poor family doesn't get harassed by this man or his sister that seems to be very much trying to get involved. The only people that know what happened are the people who were there. Obviously if within 24 hours This man pressed charges If HE HAD BEEN intoxicated the ER or Sheriffs department would have wanted his to take a acohol/drug test. Which would have shown If Mr. Riffle had been Drinking as has been said in the above statements. I do think that The Sheriffs department would not waste there time, If they didn't think they had a reason too!

he used that crap with me too. john is violent, he's lazy he won't work for more than a few weeks at a time, but honey girl if you'd of given it just a couple of more week you would of proabably found out how many women he was talking to behind your back, wake up, the last girl he was living with in south carolina was shoved through a glass door, i was assaulted choked slammed across the hood of my car and had personal property damage done by john there is also a cdv restraining order in pensacola florida for him. but, go ahead and believe what you want to believe I did, but then I got smart enough to go check things out myself, go to the escambia county website and pull his name up. but,i will leave you with one final warning, don't ever come home without his copenhagen, and don't turn your back on him when he's drinking his liquor.

ALL I CAN SAY IS GOOD LUCK.... YOU GONNA NEED IT, BUT, YOU CAN'T SAY YOU WEREN'T WARNED. YOU KNOW IT'S STRANGE IF HE IS ALL THESE THINGS YOU SAY HE IS, WHY DOESN'T HE HAVE ANYTHING TO SHOW FOR IT, NO HOUSE, MOST OF THE TIME, VERY FEW CLOTHES, A BORROWED SUITCASE, DID YOU KNOW HIS EX-WIFE AS YOU ARE SPEAKING OF PARENT'S PAID HIM TO LEAVE BECAUSE OF HOW BAD HE WAS MESSING UP HER LIFE. AND SHE WAS A PREACHER'S DAUGHTER, I'VE BEEN WHERE YOU ARE, I WORE HIS DIAMOND,OR SHOULD I SAY A DIAMOND HE BOUGHT WITH MY MONEY, AND I FELL FOR IT HOOK LINE AND SINKER, AND SO HAVE YOU, BUT, JUST LIKE, AND OBVIOUSLY SO HAVE YOU.DID YOU ALSO KNOW THAT FROM THE FIRST PART OF NOVEMBER OF 2005 UNTIL THE MIDDLE OF DECEMBER OF 2006 HE WAS IN "SERIOUS" RELATIONSHIPS WITH AT LEAST SIX WOMEN. SOUNDS LIKE A REALLY STEADY GUY, THINK ABOUT WHERE YOU MET HIM, IN A BAR, WAS HE DRUNK DID HE SING TO YOU, DID YOU KNOW HE DIDN'T PAY FOR OR DESIGN EITHER ONE OF THE TAT'S THAT HE HAS. IT'S ALL LIES. GUARD YOUR HEART, ASK AROUND I'VE BEEN WHERE YOU ARE AND TRUST ME THE LONGER YOU ARE WITH HIM THE FURTHER HE SUCKS YOU DOWN. AND IF HE WAS THE VIC WHY DID HE HOP A BUS AND HAUL BUTT BACK TO SC ON A TICKET THAT WAS BOUGHT FOR HIM, DID YOU ALSO KNOW THAT HE IN THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS HAS BEEN MAKING PLANS TO LEAVE FLORIDA? YOU CAN BELIEVE ME OR NOT BELIEVE ME THE CHOICE IS YOUR, BUT, EXACTLY WHAT DO I HAVE TO GAIN FROM TELLING YOU THIS, I AM NOW VERY HAPPILY MARRIED. I DON'T KNOW YOU FROM ADAM, BUT I KNOW HIM, AND HE'S EVERYTHING JAY SAYS HE IS.

his sister is not treyin to get involved it just shows she loves her brother and she knows that her brother isnt a voilent person the night that all this took place i know for a fact that Mr.Riffle was drinking that night .he did go to the ER the next day after he sobbered up so they couldnt smell the alcohol on him .the Sheriff's Department does not require u to take a alcohol and drug test at all in this matter

I drove my wife home right agter it happened and then went straight to the emergency room. Then Whent to the police deptment the next morning then had Surgery by 4pm the next day. So Whoever you people are that think you know about me, you dont. I do know when you say untrue things about people and things that are not true in genral that is slander. So if you were not there you have no right talking about what happened as if you were there. I will let the courts handle it. Thanks for the support of Lexington County and WLTX!

Craig is my good friend, and I have always known him to be trustworthy. If he says that he drove Jamie home (right-handed) then went to the ER, then I am sure that the evidence that will be presented in court will confirm his account.

If Shiffner is innocent, why did he give a fake name, then flee the authorities?

I hope that Shiffner will see fit to turn his life around--and do right by his victim, set up a restitution plan, and follow through with substantial recompense. Craig has suffered greatly, piled up very large medical bills, and lost substantial income as a direct result of Mr. Shiffner's behavior. He has 2 small children and can ill afford the costs imposed by Mr. Shiffner's rash behavior on April 26, 2006.

Craig told me tonight that he is not looking for revenge at all, and in fact he has learned to appreciate the God-sent blessings he used to take for granted. On the other hand, he could certainly stand to get some help in paying for the bills that have piled up, and Mr. Shiffner is the right person to take responsibility for that.

okay people this better stop this is going to far this man Mr Shiffner is paying now so all these comments and putting him down needs to stop.As yall dont know his family can press charges against yall for keeping on saying stuff like yall are doing on here and i will see to it .I was there and knowed what took place.Mr.Riffle shouldnt have been there nor his wife if they had small children at home.Mr.Shiffner is innocent until proven guilty.He did not flee .he had no idea there was a warrant for his arrest until somebody here called in and gave tips to his where abouts.Mr.Shiffner is a good guy like i have said before he wouldnt have done this unless he was provoked to and he was .Both hit each other and thats all im saying until court comes

I should clarify that I am speaking of Mr. Shiffner's financial responsibility from the perspective of civil liability, not criminal guilt. Criminal guilt will have to be settled via the standard legal process (although I have expressed why I have reservations about Mr. Shiffner's story). Civil liability, on the other hand, means that if you cause an injury to someone -- regardless of whether it was a criminal act -- you owe the injured party recompense.

If person A does not intend to injure person B, and sees that his inadvertant or rash action has injured person B, he would not walk away and leave person B on the pavement in agonizing pain. He would visit person B in the hospital; he would contact person B in the aftermath, apologize, and try to help as much as he could. Is this how Mr. Shiffner has acted?

I have seen my friend Craig suffer both pain and financial loss, and it is my opinion that he has a right to damages under civil law.
