You have a local man that owns a drug store and has been in so much trouble with drugs, have you seen his name in the paper - no.

Sam and Jason lived in Mobile,Al. The story was published in the Mobile Register. Just because their parents live here doesn't make it local news.

Why does Sam have a house in George County? And why was Jason living with Russel up until the sh*t hit the fan? Are you family to them? Why did the Hattiesburg American run the story?

I couldn't believe the Kennedy reprints. I read that back in 1965. There are some interesting people in George County that would make interesting articles, what do we get? News 50 years old!!

We basically get no news at all - they may be turning into the GC Star with that Grass Growing Granny story.

Last yr. Samuel Kelley (son of Alton Kelley) and Jason Kelley (son of Russel Kelley) were convicted of selling hundreds of illegal anabolic steroids and sent to Federal prison Sam was convicted of 130 counts, including drug conspiracy, drug distribution, distribution to a person younger than 21 and money laundering. Jason was convicted of 127 counts, including drug conspiracy, drug distribution, distribution to a person younger than 21 and money laundering. However, GCT never mentioned it.
A little old lady grows a few marijuana plants and its all over the GCT.
I find that interesting. I guess the poor ole lady doesnt have the right last name.
That man is my dad. You should do some research. they are all innocent. it is a war on steroids and my dad was a caught in the cross fire. all prescriptions that my dad's company filled had written prescriptions from doctors saying it was a medical necessity. Also what the doctors and pharmacists do is no way make my dad liable. AND the alleged crimes were committed in Mobile, not george county, that is just where he grew up and recently built a home. not a single person was hurt in all of this and now it has devastated the lives of several families. Our last name has nothing to do with why it wasn't in a small town newspaper...

I do honestly believe that the owner of the George County Newspaper(I use the newspaper term as a joke)picks and chooses only the news he wants to put out. Some of his Editorials on many occasions had only what he as a person wanted to say in his paper, the truth did not matter whether it was included or even told. The name should be change to something other than a newspaper because newspapers tell all of the news not just the news the OWNER wants to tell.

The owner must have read some of my opinions, because I did not get a paper today. LOL Ordinarily I would not worry about it, but our Parrot's cages need the bottom lined.

Sam is your father? You have my sympathies.
He was selling illegal anabolic steroids and you say he is innocent? Why is he in Federal prison? You say illegal drugs doesnt hurt anyone? I wonder why they are labeled ILLEGAL.
He was also convicted of money laundering. It is my understanding that money laundering is also illegal in the USA.
It is also my understanding that Russell Kelley was accused of stealing a sh*t load of money from the union hall at the ship yard many yrs ago but was able to hire great lawyers who somehow got him off of the charges. I guess padding your pockets anyway you can weather you hurt others or not is somehow ok in that family.
LOL!

that post made no sense Ma'am. "all prescriptions that my dad's company filled had written prescriptions from doctors saying it was a medical necessity." I have glaucoma all over my elbows and a doctor in Calif said I could smoke marijuana but the George county deputies don't seem to understand that.I'm caught in the crossfire.

we are talking about steroids, not marijuana. and steroids are prescribed to many different people. the case here was doctors prescribing steroids to people that did not need them, my dad is not a doctor, he simply is the owner of a pharmacy. he doesn't oversee anyone, he sits behind a desk and makes executive decisions. How could he be liable for what the doctors and possibly the pharmacists do? I am a male by the way.
Marijuana is federally illegal in America, but it is legal to some people with medical needs on the state level in california and some other states. you can get arrested in every place in the U.S. for carrying marijuana by a federal agent.
my dads company just filled prescriptions. the real "bad" guys in this were the doctors. the doctors testified against us saying we knew about the whole thing and none of them got in any trouble, they also lied. one doctor left the country and another killed himself. we are taking our case to the supreme court later this month.

I personally do not believe a pharmacy will be prosecuted for legal prescriptions - this story has many holes in it - where were the prescriptions on file. I admire you for taking up for your dad and sorry for your circumstances.

I think there has to be a bug in the ointment somewhere. There has to be enough evidence to make an arrest and put a Pharmacist in Jail.
