I guess that Hullette must have ratted out his coworkers since he is not in court.

Nah. Hullette will get his comeuppance when the Grand Jury returns the true bill indictments this week. Can you say "R.I.C.O."? Hopefully, he's going to spend the rest of his natural life in prison.

Nelson and Adkins pled guilty to only those charges their attorneys knew they couldn't even mount a defense against. There will be more charges, and more people in the defense docket, shortly.

Hullette is a crook! About time FBI came to town to look at him! He was great at keeping his girlfriend (now wife) a secret for years from his first I'm guessing he is pretty good at "hiding" other things! FBI will find it all assured! KARMA!!!!!

FBI should go after all involved.... Someone please publish the names of the contractors that "grossly overcharged" the airport for services. These people should go to jail along with the two brother.... Publish their names and everyone should boycott them as contractors...Then let's all escort them to JAIL..

I have always heard that Scarface and Triggs were into smuggling at the airport.

Hullette has used Triggs for years (even after Triggs got into trouble). Must have too much information on Randy for him to take his business elsewhere. His own father-in-law was a police officer and tried to put him away for years...i think he knows someone high enough up to keep him safe.

Eventually "higher-up's" get tired of saving underlings! Too much bs and attention won't bode well for Hullette!

Why can the airport employees get into trouble but Amy Greer Morgan, formerly of the sheriffs office/ sex office of Caldwell cannot? FBI you read these, I know you do, when will we hear about an investigation into our Sheriffs Dept. Promotions of the even more corrupt.

I don't know about prison, that is extremely harsh, unless they are doing something wrong and breaking the law. Then that would be up to a Court to decide. I just wonder with this economy, how can they purchase new cars when the other cars aren't a total loss? Washington DC, Arlington, VA, Maryland, NY, Homeland Security cars driven around the capital, many larger more thriving cities drive what this tiny small county dept drove years ago. This small town having newest of the new makes you scratch your head. These cars aren't cheap by any means. I don't remember the NewsTopic reporting a freak accident where a slew of cars were totalled in the parking lot of their office so they just had to buy top of the line newbies. Or did I miss that paper and they just had to buy all new cars? Then promote cough, cough, somebody who has had a complaint filed against them in Jan 2012. Don't understand it, just don't understand it.

Alex goes to jail today! I hope they traumatize him over and over again. Three years isn't nearly enough for what he did. I just hope he comes out so psychologically ruined that he can never hold more than a minimum wage job for the rest of his life.
Brad Atkins got off with time served. Maybe his druggie friends will eventually put an end to him for us...
Now, let's see what pumishment Randy Hullette gets. As he is the ringleader of the group, the judge should lock his ass up for as long as legallu permitted. 30 years isn't nearly enough, but it'll have to do.
Did you see his sob story in the Lenoir news topic how he didn't take any of the airport money and how he was not given a fair chance to prove his innocence. Such bull crap. He has finally got what is due him. All I can say is run Tammy run while the devil is away.

Why did the Lenoir news topic decide to write about Alex now when they wouldn't put anything in the paper before. Nobody wants to read about how Alex was not treated fairly. Just a bunch of lies and a pity party cause his dumb a$$ got caught this time. No more trips to Florida for awhile for him. LMAO
