I want to know how someone can live in public housing and get food stamps,familys first,and tenncare can steal someones elses foodstamp card and get cought and get charged with three counts of theft under five hundred and all she gets is probation. Come on now if you live in public housing and get foodstamps and a utilty check you still have to go out here steal when you over 700 dollars in foodstamps and a 200 dollar check you can not make it. Ok sencond she is nine monthes prego and in her fourties. COME ON PEOPLE REALLY IF IT WAS US WE WOULD BE UNDER THE FEDERAL JAIL FOR FOODSTAMP FRUED!!!!! And really if u loved your three kids at home or the baby you are carring why would you go out do dumb crap.

You need to take this question to the judge and the Hamblen County legal system rather than posting this crap on Topix. Another Morristownian who would rather post trash on Topix rather than go directly to the source1

Legal Beaver, that's probably because the judge isn't going to do anything. That's all we, the people, can do is rant on Topix. At least you guys aren't as bad as the Rogersville PD.

I mean really people what is the government coming to when they allow people to do this? Wow she has to do probation that the state is gonna pay for with her getting families first.

It's so sad,for all of the working parents and individuals. Right now everything is overly expensive and it's hard to make ends meet, but if we were to need help, we would be told we make too much money. I fully support those that need the help, and are working as well. It needs to be a temporary assistance, not a lifestyle. It's like these people are being told it's ok to not work and not be able to stand on your own, because the government will support you. I fear for the day that it is so abused the people who truly need help will not be able to get it.

Nothing is gonna happen to this person. Wow she is now on probation for the crime. She didnt lose her foodstamps public housing or anything. While us hard working people are out here slaveing or her to live it up. What a crock the state has turn into now. Guess it turns to it depends on who you know and who you are willing to sleep with anymore. So they let her go for that now she sits up there racking it up her and her boyfriend are getting damn near 1300 in foodstamps and getting away with it. WTF really people that really need it cnt get it bt peolpe who dnt get all the help...

I know many that juice the system for all it's worth & still go out here and steal. It is unfortunate that these crimes aren't taken more serious. A hard working person runs a red light & gets a more strict punishment it seems. I think foodstamps should only be a temporary option, if a person can't provide proof they are looking for a job they don't need stamps.

I think you are very right.. I think they should have to do something besides sitting and drawing foodstamps. I know people that truely need help and can not get any then you have people who sit out here and suck the state dry. I think the state needs to keep a check on these people or something I mean a slap in the wrist for stealing foodstamps when she get almost $700 her self. Thats all that happeed se gets to keep hers and her free home that housing pays her to live in and the churches pay her light bill and gives her more food. Plus gets food from the central services I mean the living the good life while other people sit out here and starve. Or get put in jail for less crimes. What has THIS STATE came too reall?
