This guy stole money that relates to a triple murder case. The case will probably not go to trial due to this, and no jail time. This is sad, shame on you judge Bouton. The same old s**t!!! SAD,SAD,SAD

This is why why collar criminals will continue to commit white collar crimes. Until we bring the hammer down on white collar criminals they will continue to be incentivized to commit these crimes.

Here's the point of the story...if you're ever proposed a plea deal, TAKE IT! It makes things easier when plea deals are accepted. No trials, no making sure all witnesses show up, etc, etc. A lot of white collar crimes are plead because it makes life easier for all involved. It's not just the judge to blame; it's the whole judicial system.

While what you say is 100% true; it's also why a lot of innocents get convicted.

Prosecuters love plea deals, less work. One problem with that is there are lot of charges that get dropped as a result. Like say gun charges. Happens all the time. Prosecutors get a good conviction rate and crimes go unpunished.

Yes, a sereant testified for him at the sentencing. Its still "The Good Ole Boy" system! I got my first and only DUI in Greene County, got me 10 days in jail. I knew Shifflett personally and most others that worked at the Sheriffs office. They were and will always be "The Good Ole Boys"! So much for an adversarial justice system!

I told you he would get the usual slap on the wrist. The good old boy network is still in effect for this area. They think they are above the law because they are. It's not whether they are black or white, blue is the color required for leniency in the courts these days. They look out for their own and don't care what the public thinks, they know there is nothing anyone can do about it. If it were anyone other than a member of law enforcement his ass would be in jail, period.

I agree with you 100 percent. Why cant we just fire Steve Smith? He is just as crooked as those other clowns are down there. But you are right about one thing, election time will be here soon.People lets work hard to get someone honest in the greene county sheriffs dept.We deserve it, Greene County hasnt seen that for a long time!

And you would have thought by electing a new sheriff, would have changed the good ole boy system. The new sheriff is just as bad as the one Greene County had before.

the sheriff has nothing to do with the sentencing. At least he wasn't afraid to go in and get his hands "dirty" by calling in the investigators and getting to the bottom of things. He could have easily washed it under the bridge and kept his department from getting a black eye. All he can do is be upfront and honest and let the chips fall where they may.

Bouton made that decision not steve.
