FROM CHANNEL 7 KTLV NEWS and the KLTV NEWS WEBSITE: DECEMBER 30, 2010
News Story is at: http://www.kltv.com/global/story.asp ...#
The newstory and video is on the KLTV website
Three Upshur County Officials were charged with official oppression and abuse of official capacity by a grand jury.
Sheriff Anthony Betteron, Judge Dean Fowler, and precinct 3 Commissioner Lloyd Crabtree all turned themselves in after they were charged.
These charges stem from the Upshur County Commissioner's court ending public comments at meetings.
KLTV has also learned that Upshur County Judge Dean Fowler cast the tie-breaking vote to once again, allow public comment at meetings.
For weeks, residents taped their mouths shut in silent protest during the meetings. Some even wore their disgust with the rule on their sleeves, wearing shirts that read "Can you hear me now?"
Public comment will be allowed at the next meeting, but two new commissioners are expected to join the court after the first of the year.
"Sheriff Anthony Betteron, Judge Dean Fowler, and precinct 3 Commissioner Lloyd Crabtree all turned themselves in after they were charged."
I just checked the Upshur County Judical Records, not any of the 3 were booked in or mug shots taken. If your charged, you have to be arrested and if your arrested you have to be booked in. Are these 3 being given special treatment? I and the rest of the citizens of Upshur County would like to know why these three seem to have been given very preferential treatment.
Fowler is well known in Gilmer for using his "official capacity" to be harsh on those that are opposed to him and very light on those that are not. I've not run into him, but know others that have, so all I can say is,"What comes around goes around." I know most of Upshur County is getting a silent revenge on Fowler tonight through this news story. Many have started the New Year's Celebration early because of this.

Why did this guy ever take a job as a county judge. Most of the county judges I know are a bunch of bubba's with nothing better to do? I hear guy is an attorney.....he must be desperate for work.
