or the child molester that got treatment. sad situation and what is more sad is the fact he don't have money. if his parents had of been somebody then he would be back in school, with his scholarship still playing ball and graduating with his class. keith bartley is doggin' him but he was right in there fightin' for the goble woman that basically raped a child. he is pathetic.

He is 18 years old and an adult..Poor? maybe, most crooks and dope dealers are poor. That's why they commit crimes, to get money. Not a lot of wealthy people get out on the street to sell drugs.

Nope, he won't tell who he was selling for. Also, he got caught after two 13 year olds got caught smoking dope. They told the police Warren was selling out of his truck ON THE SCHOOL GROUNDS! The drug dog was brought in and made a hit on Warren's truck. After arrest he admitted he was dealing in the school but refused to tell who sold it to him.

It is not possible to know the details of each case as it proceeds through the legal system and all the obstructions that get in each case's path. However, if this kid was caught in the act by undercover officers and then he confessed, well he probably did this selling which is sad. It is even more sad if he did it for his mother and I hope that is not the case but if it is, I hope he turns her in to get her off the street and him another chance at life.
I hope the prosecuters give this kid a chance at a normal life and do not convert him into another Charles Manson type character who spends most of his adult life in prison which would be a loss for both society of it's youth and the boy for his life would be pitiful in it's entiety.
But he would need to be prepared to be honest, forthcoming, and follow the stringent parole standards allowable by law in a free country with drug testing, monitoring, a job to pay fines, agreeing to help authorities with identifying his suppliers, etc.... He should be willing to help them to end this type of crime at schools and render the access to the young people he sold to unavailable for future kids who think of this idea and the places identified where these drug deals went down in the school itself.
For you people on here supporting this boy and profess to be his friend, why not get together with a local youth minister, I heard that both Allen Baptist and Irene Cole,as well as the big Methodist church at Allen, have really involved youth ministers. I believe one of those church's pastor is a lawyer and may defend the boy himself if it is ethical and he feels his convictions tell him to do so. I heard they really work closely with their children in attendance on lots of issues, and can help set up fund raisers to help aid him with his legal representation and maybe hire him an attorney and show him he does have an extended family of supporters who care for him, love him in a Christian manner, and hire him a law firm that does criminal defense such as Pillersdorf, DeRosett and Layne that advertises that they help the underdog, as it sounds as if this boy is the underdog.
Maybe if some defendant's lawfirm firm sees this boy has his classmate's support system established, either them or some other firm will help him at a reduced fee schedule, take payments, and also help set up the fund raisers and who knows, some attorneys offer pro bono services.
So supporters and friends of Mr. Blackburn, when is the first car wash, bake sale, or other fundraisers going to start in order to help him and show our community he has our support and is he willing to do the right thing, step up to the plate and be a man, and tell on his suppliers and rest his faith in the local law enforcement and prosecuters to be protected equally under the long arm of the law?

In my opinion, his future is up to him and his supporters need to step up to the plate !!! But make him step with you !!! This is part of growing up, doing the right thing, no matter how hard it is at times !!!

You sound like you teleported here from forty years ago. The kid sold POT, not Oxycontin. Marijuana is practically legal, grow up, focus on improving yourself and leave this child alone. As far a church being the solution to all problem, if these "good Christian people" would put some money in the community instead of building these big monstrosities they call churches then maybe they could make an impact rather than just getting on topix and acting judgmental.

Your just going to react by accusing me or using or selling drugs myself becasue that is all you schmucks know how to do, name call and paray. Lol

When someone crashes into your family on the roadway and kills someone then you find out the driver was smoking pot, which is illegal, I want you to still say it was ok because pot is practically legal.

There is an 18 year old black kid that was caught at the Job Corp selling pot last week, when do you start the car washes for him? Also, the 18 yr olds that have been caught selling at Wheelwright, South Floyd, Betsy Layne or even Prestonsburg that were from Middle Creek, David, Allen that didn't play basketball, I'm so sorry I missed their car washes and legal aid you all gave for them. Odd, I didn't even hear about them. My bad. Maybe I can make up for it by getting in on the one your having for the black kid at the job corp. Where and when will it be held?

Bottom line is what he did was illegal. He should have to pay the price for what he did just like everyone else does that gets caught. Who cares if he's 18 or 100. He knew what he was doing was illegal. It's no ones fault but his that he's in this mess. He need to be a man, step up to the plate, plead guilty, do his time, and learn from it.

If you want to talk about hypothetical scenerio's then I'll let you in on some fact. I've had that happen to me. I've lost family members because of someone thinking its ok to smoke pot and get behind the wheel and drive. The guy was so stoned he didn't even know what happened.

People I've gone to school with I've seen die because the OD On drugs and guess how they started down that road. Marijuana was the first drug that they did and after smoking it for a while they could get high anymore so they move on to something harder like pills, cocaine, meth.

The legislature pass criminal laws to prohibit acts considered harmful. immoral or bad for others. They passed on making it a felony to sell pot in the schools or on school grounds. Then that excellent boy Warren decides about a year ago to get into the drug business. He starts selling a Prestonsburg High School.All's well till the city police catch two boys who broke into the old grade school, sitting there smoking dope. They finally explained they buy dope from that excellent boy Warren Blackburn at there high school, and the way you do business with that good , excellent young man is you go to Warren and put in your order of what you want and Warren will have it for you by the end of the school day. The City police take a drug dog to Warren's truck, parked at the school and the dog makes a hit for drugs. Then they go get Warren, he confesses, the drugs are retrieved from the truck and he is arrested. Warren is offered generous treatment if he will cooperate. Warren tells them no way is he going to name anybody, he may be a dope dealer but he is not a snitch. Now excellent Warren that 18 year old MAN, who sells drugs to 13 year olds has been indicted for a felony. The penalty is 1-5 years in prison. The law should be enforced. The LAW says 13 year olds should be protected from drug dealers who sell right in their school. Excellent Warren knew the penalty when he choose to become a dealer. That is how the world works. Warren and the students at his school need to see it.
He is not a kid

My grand son is 18 years old and is in a combat unit in Afganistan, along with 2 other young men from here and Pike county. This "boy" is a man and many of those who should be his class mates are fighting and dying. Just because he choose to hold back in school and be a drug dealer don't make him a kid. He is a man. He is a slacker and dope dealer. Want to give him a break? let him chose between the marines or prision. I bet he will take prison.

I just had to reply to your last sentence. 13 year olds need to be protected from drug dealers who sell at school?

You mean two 13 year olds who broke into private property and are obviously hooked on pot already. Are they being punished?

How about protecting my child who is neither a drug dealer or a delinquent. I bet Warren isn't the only person they bought from.
