The Sheriff and Judges lets the Gettys Boys, James Marion (2531 Eric Rd., New House community) and his daddy Jimmy Walter (Jack Moore Mt. Rd. Ext), biggest METH dealers in western NC off with just a slap on the wrist. Both have served prison time for trafficking in illegal drugs, stealing property, resisting public officers. Makes me wonder who is getting paid off ??

Check out the Gettys Boys criminal records at - Offender Search and at - Criminal Calendars for their latest drug charges in Cleveland and Rutherford Counties. Cleveland County Deputy Kevin Pruitt lives in the New House community and must know about the local drug dealers. Why isn't he doing anything about the Gettys Boys driving without a license (DWLR) and racing up and down the highways at 90 miles an hour. Where is the Sheriff Raymond Hamrick, Assistant District Attorney William Carlos "Bill" Young, and the DA Rick Shaffer in all this drug trafficking right under the noses of the Deputies in the Sheriff's Dept.

Tommy R. Pruett, Sr. his son T.R., Jr. and brother Ricky Lee Pruett feeds the Gettys Boys cows, works for Judge "Charlie" Horn, and runs drugs for the Gettys', while Judge Larry J. Wilson lets them off for stalking his neighbors, Magistrate Larry Ware lets Tommy off for traffic violations - all of the Pruett Clan claims to be disables and draws maximum Social Security benefits,$2200 per month; Tommy had polio as a young boy, T.R. claims to be mental incapable of working, while Ricky Lee claims to be an epileptic but the Sheriff and DMV allows him to drive all over western NC - a "bunch" of welfare free loaders.

Having known " the Gettys boys " all my life I have to wonder where the polkville tarhill gets his information. While some of his information is correct over half is not accurate. Does he even live in Polkville ? Please get the story straight before you begin slandering your neighbors.

Has anyone even read that article ? To my knowledge no Gettys were even mentioned ( fine people too I might add ). How did the polkville tarhill connect one with the other ? Seems he might be on the inside looking out.

Sounds to me like the Polkville Tarheel has some grudges against the Pruett boys. It almost smells like A Buck a roo to me.

Seems to me Robert A. Williams (814 East Stage Coach Trail-Fallston, NC), editor and publisher of his own "newsrag" ( ) that has slandered and defamed judge Anna Foster, former Sheriff Dan Crawford and then assistant district attorney Rick Shaffer needs to update his comments and involvment in getting his Pruett friends, who run drugs for Jimmy Walter Gettys, off with just a slap on the wrist for stalking from Judge Larry J. Wilson, November 20, 2006. RAW has admitted according to court records that he fabricated the lies he published about Judge Foster, Sheriff Crawford, and ADA Rick Shaffer. According to his own publications, he admitted in a April Fool's joke that he and his gang of drug dealers, John Mark Keatley, Jr. and sex offender brother Timothy James Keatley from Wooster, Ohio ( ), were responsible for the abduction of Asha Degree on February 14, 2000.
