He is guilty as charged. He would let my friend out every weekend for money. My friend was serving weekends for DUI but never served any weekend time at all. He would sign in to the jail as he was suppose to and then call a friend to come pick him up 30 minutes later, it was ridiculous. This guard Omar would sign him out then when he should have been being let out.

He is a good guy who made 1 bad choice. He is a wonderful father. The sheriff wanted a friend in that postion he had at the jail so it is a vendetta against him.

First of all this is NOT newsworthy!! Let him have his day in court then maybe report, he and his family have gone through enough!! It's funny how quick people are to be judge and jury but when and if it is about them or their family totally different story!! Enough seriously leave it alone!

How is this not newsworthy? He was in charge of making sure criminals were to be in jail and off the streets and he took there money instead so they could possible break the law again and possible hurt someone.It is funny how his friends are quick to also be the judge and jury an dbelieve he is not guilty.

It is not newsworthy. Its just plain politics. So glad when december comes and we actually have a sheriff who is all about his staff and the people in the community and not get a name forhimself before he is out of office by putting a decent man doing his job out of a job he is not guilty until proven so!!!

Citizen, This has beeen going on for two years now he was wrong and should pay this isnt about someone triing to make a name for himself.This is about someone that broke the law and must pay.If he didnt feel he is guilty then why has he been delaying it and changing lawerys for so long.
