I am appalled by the justice system in Magoffin County.On Monday monrning Wayne Craft was arrested for assault on his wife Wanda Craft in Magoffin County. This was a severe case of domestic violence. An EPO was faxed to and and received by the Johnson County Detention Center at 4:17 pm on Monday, December 12. He was not released until after 10 pm that night. However, he was never served with the EPO. In fact he was not served until Thursday, and this required a visit to the Sherriff's office to accomplish.
I was under the impression that failure to serve a protective order was illegal. So much for Amanda's Law and all of the "serious" laws and measures enacted to prevent such tragedies.
Domestic violence is in and of itself a heinous tragedy and the failure of the sytstem that is supposed to protect victims is an even greater tragedy!

I too can NOT believe he was allowed to just WALK FREE after what he did to her! I have had her on my mind all day today and pray justice will be served to him. I know Wanda, and he could have never asked for a better soul to live his life on this earth with, yet she has had to live a life of fear for so many years. The main fear she has lived with is that the "system" would not help her.
From all I gather, her worst fears became reality as those in authority in Magoffin County ignored his criminal acts, and simply ignored serving the EPO because of the pathetic mentality that Wayne Craft is just one of the "good ole boys." This is outrageous, and it makes me sick! Sending prayers up for justice to be served!

I was in court room this past Thursday. I saw the pictures from where I was sitting of Wanda, from the violence that was done to her. U are right the system has fail, again. We have very little that we can be proud of in our county.
Look's like we must take care of our own. So I say, watch out who ever hurt a child of my or my mother. See ya!

I think any man that bets a women is the biggest piece of shit there is.I think wayne craft is very low life to bet on a women.Wanda will never have him back after this.He goes to court thurs and I hope they put him in jail for 6 months.Wanda is such a good person I don't know how he could lay down and sleep at night.

May this sorry excuse for a man reap what he has sewn. To think that a man would get mad at his wife, and burn her clothes and household things for DAYS before brutally beating her, it proves he didn't act in haste, yet he pre-meditated harm to her both physically and mentally. A man that would do the things he did to her is a psychopath. Magoffin County, stop tolerating abuse like this, and put people like Wayne Craft in their place.

OMG..I have been hearing about this but could not believe it. She is such a wonderful person who put up with his shit for so many years. I have known her for quite a while and just could not figure out what in the world she saw in that scum for the way he treated and talked to her. I hope she fights this psyco tooth and nail in court to show that women don't have to let these kind of men keep doing this to them and get away with it scott free. I am praying for her and wish her all the best of luck. Wake up Magoffin County justice system, what is going on here,,we want JUSTICE for this innocent victim of domestic violence!!! You fail one.. you fail all "WHAT ABOUT AMANDA'S LAW????"

This is so sad what this woman has been through with this man, but now what is going to be done about it before something worse happens. It does not matter who you are, if you beat a woman this way..you are capable of doing anything to anyone. I would call the media and whoever else I have to in order to make this known how Magoffin County Justice System is handling this case of domestic violence. No one deserves to be treated this way.
Sickened

I too am sickened by this brutality and Wayne Craft in general. I have known Wanda for many years and know how well she was treated and how much she was loved by her first husband Willard. To know that she fell victim to a low life like Wayne Craft after her first husband died is a tragedy. I know how this man for years verbally, mentally, emotionally, and physically abused her. He had nothing of his own when he married Wanda and began immediately trying to force her to put his name on the deed to her farm that she and her husband Willard had bought. For years, he has threatened to burn the house down with her in it. Yet this man walks around acting like he is a decent human being. How someone as honest, decent and loving ended up with such a violent, controlling, manipulative man consumed by greed is a question only God can answer. I will continue to pray for Wanda. I know God will deal with Wayne Craft.

I know what you mean. She is such a loving and caring person who did not deserve this abuse (no woman deserves this). But she is a strong willed person who will overcome this. He may have had her down for years but she is getting stronger everyday and I hope her nothing but the best. She has lived a life of fear and hell with this man, he deserves to be behind bars for what he did to her.(He cannot blame this violent act on drinking or pills because he was sober that morning from what I understand, he is just a low life coward with no heart). But instead was let out of jail the very same day he did this to her. I just don't understand how a friend of both of them would pay his bond to get him out of jail after what he did to her,unless he does his wife the same way. From what I have been told Wayne has shot people before and got away with it,so what is up with this? He has always thought he was the cock of the walk and every woman's dream,he needs to be in jail to see what he really is in everyone's eyes. I am praying for Wanda and I know she has alot of family,friends, and supporters who will bend over backwards for her.
True Colors Revealed

The one positive thing to come out of this tragedy is that Wayne Craft's true colors have been revealed to the world. To those that really know him, this incident didn't come as a shock. For all of the years I have know this man, he has been extremely cold hearted, violent, and controlling.

One would only have to look at his history of abuse with his first wife to know that this is not some new development in his character. He has always been this way. I can't imagine what Wanda's life has been like all these years. I know that this verbal, emotional, mental, and physical abuse has been a big part of it. He is really beneath contempt. I only hope that he receives the justice that he truly deserves. The person that said he acts like he is the cock of the walk certainly knows him. He thinks he is above the law and answers to no one. I am truly glad that this man's true nature has been brought to light. It isn't as easy to walk around with a fake smile on your face pretending to be a decent human being when the ugliness of your character has come to light.

Let justice be served in this matter!

The thought of this man sickens me. His wife is a very special person and has always tried to help others. Our judicial system is a joke. Wayne better be glad that I'm not his stepdaughter or wandas family because he would have done had a big dose of his own medicine!

This man is pathetic. His abuse is bad enough, but he is sitting in a house she had to leave out of fear, a house that sits on a farm paid for by Wanda and her first husband. He really does think he can get by with anything. It is so sickening, and he is the worst kind of pathetic coward...the kind that makes themselves feel big and bad by bullying, abusing, and tormenting anyone they think they can.

I find it interesting that my post a while back was somehow removed from this website.It seems that I was the only one promoting the revelation of actual fact in this case instead of siding with those who seem to only want to smear the name of a good man. I have known Wayne for a good number of years and he is not a wife beater,or any of this other fertilizer that Wanda and her minions have represented him to be.Hell,she had to bring up a fight between Wayne and another man that happened years ago to try to portray him as violent.Yes,he burned her clothes,but any bruises inflicted on her were the handiwork of her sister to make her case in court stronger!As far as her falling into his trap after Willard died,let's tell the truth here,she was screwing Wayne long before Willard died and Willard knew it! Why doesn't anyone want to tell what really set Wayne off suddenly after all these years? He's followed the same routine for years,rides his 4-wheeler with Ray,drinks a little shine,then goes home and goes to bed.Why now,out of the blue does he go off? What did he catch Wanda doing? It must have been bad,and Tonya must know it because she's probably the only one in that family intelligent enough to have removed my last post. Wayne Craft is NOT a wife beater! Wayne is a good man that has been lied on by a bunch of greedy,system playing,crooks who will stop at nothing to get a free dollar.

Although I find this site disgusting and a waste of time in general. When I was informed of this so called "Beaver Doctor" post I was again reminded of the saying: "It's far better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt." I have no idea what your previous post was, but if it was as full of lies and ignorance as your last, it was worthless. I am no one's minion,but I have known both of these people for years. One is a decent, caring, loving human being. The other is a low life who in fact is a wife beater that beat his first wife and has abused Wanda mentally, emotionally, and physically for years. The fact that you try to denigrate the victim is always the low life ignorant tactic of the friends of the abuser. I know it is really a waste of time to even comment on the pathetic rantings of one of his few friends, but as someone who saw Wanda, the large amount of blood throughout the house, and all the police photos, it is such an endorsement of your complete asinine ignorance to say her sister beat her up that I need to speak the truth. Her sister did not arrive until after the police. Just the facts. As for your friend Wayne Craft, he did not SUDDENLY snap! He has been guilty of his abusive, controlling and evil behavior for most of his life. As for Wanda's daughter, I think both she and her mother have much better things to do than post on this site. So, even though any conversation with ignorant people is pointless, I will refute your statement. WAYNE CRAFT IS A WIFE BEATER and not just of Wanda! If you think he is such a wonderful good man, maybe you should try living with him for a while. See how wonderful you think he is after that. And really it doesn't matter what you or anyone else has to say on here or anywhere else. The man can lie about every evil thing he has been guilty of in life, but God really does know the truth, and there is a time when we all must answer!

I have also known these two people for many many years and "Beaver Doctor" if you really know them as you let on then you know every word in your comment is bull shit. You know how he is and to refer him as a good man makes me sick. For a man to do his wife this way needs locked up forever so he can't hurt anyone else. He himself knows what he did and will have to live with it the rest of his life which wouldn't bother anyone who doesn't have a heart so I guess he will be ok with that.And as for the comment drink a little shine,go home,and go to bed...You need to wake up....everyone knows how he is when he drinks,,noone needs to fertilize anything against this man.
