Nothing wrong with putting murder's, child molesters and thieves in jail. Bad people need punished. But creating or grossly exaggerating offenses is a criminal act.

The problem is this guy has been in office for 20 years. If a person gets arrested for jaywalking, he will find some crazy felony charge attached (felony intimidation, maintaining common nuisance, conspiracy to ...etc.).None of it ever has anything to do with the facts. Don't worry his judge buddies are in on the game too.

When he started in office a little jail and a little police force and it was fine. The state had to order the county to make it bigger.

But, this guy thinks that the old movie "refer madness" is a gospel documentry. He stuffs juries full of retired teachers, and white angry geezers (with judges help). No one under 40 gets on a jury, and no one that isn't white.

Come on folks he throws over 10% of the county in jail each year (5000 prosecutions annually). The county has 40000 people in it and has a jail larger than Johnson County pop. 130,000.

It's not about crime. It's about keeping hoards of LAZY UNION cops, jailers, probation officers, house arrest officers, with cushy job, pension, health benefits, and btw I need a new car to take home!

This guy only had to face opposition once and he barely won. It's time for this angry midget to go, then his judge buddies on the bench.

He's so.Great that he slams everyone with all the bullshit he can but ... let Bryan Barrett wreck drunk and jump in the passenger seat and say I don't know who was driving to the cops and that is enough to not press any charges? Or a judges son gets in a high-speed chase with the entire PD and he turns a blind eye soon the same guy can become a cop? Your Mr wonderful is about as unethical as they come he was a mediocre lawyer that couldn't even become the top partner in an office with a drunk with a law degree and an ex-cokehead attorney Good Yeager Apply ring a bell so the twerp chose to become a prosecuter because he sucked at knowing the law. He wins by throwing numerous counts for the same offense and the fact that anyone that's dumb enough not to plea can't beat ten counts in a jury trial. Just the sheer nonsense of his cases should disbar him he follows no state law guidelines and Shelby county is a safe haven because I. The city his postdating of time sensitive court documents would have 75 % of his cases dismissed. He wins by fear and intimidation. Not to mention shelbyville's shallow gene pool and poverty stricken citizens. He's a joke!!!

Association of Indiana Prosecuting Attorney dropped this clown like a hot potato, as their leader, once they realized what a shady record he had.

Wasn't that "Good" attorney the one that embezzeled "power of attorney" accounts that he was entrusted too?

Along with voir dire racism, some discussion needs to go to the fact that HE DIDN'T pile on the charges on the Police Capt. Doug Hasecuster, after seducing a high school girl with alcohol, Hasecuster didn't have any time in jail and will likely get on to a police force somewhere else in the future. He got a slight misdemenor.

In fact Kent made sure you can't even access Mr. Hasecuster's records on Doxpop, the public internet court record service for Shelby County.

He has even made the New York Times, and major media outlets for his outrageous prosecutions.

Ok, Kent did not prosecute Hasecuster's case. They called in a special prosecutor. That is normal protocol for any case where there may be a possible conflict, and it keeps people from saying he got off light because the local prosecutor worked that case. You are the prime example as to why they do this. Too bad you didn't check to see who prosecuted this before posting. Oh, and the courts are the ones to submit the information to the recording websites. They quit reporting to doxpop a long time ago and report somewhere else. I would tell you the website, but you seem to know everything so you can figure it out. In case you are wondering, I don't work for the prosecutor's office or anywhere in the justice system. I just have an issue with misinformation and speculation in a public forum used to attack someone.

Fact Checker complains about anonymous commentors, while using an anonymous name him/herself. Typical of Shelbyville law enforcement double standards.

When you live in Shelby County, you learn quick that some people have special rights, and others have none at all.

Many of the founding fathers used pseudonyms.

Caesar & Phocion = Alexander Hamilton
Publius = James Madison
Senex = Patrick Henry
Silence Dogood & many others = Benjamin Franklin

Because, they feared being prosecuted for their dissent.

Kind of like the Shelbyville News, Editor that had cops show up at his door, "smelling marijuana", and was thrown in jail. Kind of funny, how all this happened after he stopped Sheriff Bowlby breaking state "sunshine" laws.

Fact Checker, tell us what "throw people in cages" job that you get a government check for doing?

Please explain to us, how Edward C. Zych, got fired for botching the "drunk cop, runs over civilan case" of David Bissard, in Indianapolis, only to be hired by Kent Apsley for his "DUI expertise".

To add insult to injury Kent demanded the County give him an immediate raise!

Also, please explain how intoxicated witnesses are only allowed to be called for the prosecution's benefit. But, seemed to excluded from testimony if they will benefit the defense ... more Shelby County double standards.

Finally, I need to understand why Kent's office charged people, who had marijuana in their vehicle, with possession and FELONY MAINTAINING PUBLIC NUISANCE charges, until someone finally had the money to appeal it while sitting in prison for a year.

The appeals court said the law was never intended to be used that way. How many people took felony plea deals for a bogus charge, because they were to poor or ignorant to fight it? Was Kent's department ignorant or the law, or were they simply abusing their power?

Small town prosecutors get away with this for years. Eventually people will investigate what has and is going on at that court house. It won't be pretty.

The internet is here to stay, no one reads that archaic paper. Try as you might Shelby County can't resist progress and true justice forever.

No place in my post speaks of "anonymous commentors". This is an excellent example of how people read whatever they want into things to further their personal bias. I wonder how you can accurately quote dead presidents when you can't even look two posts up and get it right. You should stick with copy/paste and quit trying to editorialize.

So no real answers ,anonymous, fact checker?

Everyone has personal biases, including those who receive a paycheck and job security from throwing more and more people into the cages and money/jobs machine called the Shelby County "justice ... ha" system.

Did you check the facts about the "we smell marijuana arrest", of the editor of the paper?

Did you check the facts of the misapplication and successful appeal of the "public nuisance" charge?

Did you check the facts about Mr. Zych's history?

Did you check the facts about Sheriff, Bowlby deciding to disobey the state sunshine laws of Indiana? You know ... deputies should get to shoot people anonymously?

Perhaps, you need to check the facts about Kent Apsley getting sued, for giving all of property seizure money to the police, "bang bang toy", fund, instead of schools, thus breaking the law.

If there is any cutting an pasting going on, its' the way charges are filed by the prosecutors office. Just pasting "felony intimidation", on to any altercation arrest and pasting "felony maintaining a common nuisance" on to any possession arrest, pasting, pasting, pasting.

This has been done regularly for years irregardless if the facts and the evidence...ruining lives and families.

Hey Fact Checker!!! Check your history Franklin and Hamilton were not presidents. Guess the lack of history knowledge explains the lack of understanding of civil rights. Like the right against self incrimination or right against unlawful search and seizure and freedom of the press. Man I am glad I moved out of that corrupt cop hole town.

been reading this thread. saw the words lost evidence and had to comment on my experience. I was falsley charged with domestic abuse. hired shelbyville attorney one right next to court house. He did not defend me just tried to tell me how mad the prosecutor was and how big of trouble i was in and how i should beg for mercy. I did not do what i was accussed of. He said they had pictures and i was happy cause pictures would show i was innocent. I asked the attorney to get pictures and show them to me cause i knew they would prove what i was saying.
he came back after months and months saying the pictures were not available but they were going to be bad. I said they were not and i wanted to see them. he said the pictures are always bad. i said that they would not be bad like that fat lawyer said and i asked why i had not seen the pictures. he said it was good because the pictures might be lost i needed to take the plea deal. this lawyer said he valued his relation with that prosecutor and said it would not be good to make him angrier. I had enough and fired the guy and went to franklin and hired Rus Johnson. Rus Johnson said my attorney had never been to a jury trial and was afraid to try a case.
Johnson made a big deal about the pictures that were missing and then my case was just dropped and all the charges. when Johnson came into the courtroom they acted afraid of him and treated him like he was famous. do not trust shelby county lawyers they are eating lunch with kent apsley and laughing at your charges. hire someone from out of town.
I know that someone is on purpose losing evidence at that court house.

Lurker you made a wise decision in choosing Mr Rus Johnson , I as well have used Russ as my legal council , an the man doesn't play ! He is infact aware of how Shelby county chooses to conduct their court system , and admits of the wrong doings that have played out in numerous cases in that town.. If the average joe knew where to file complaints , an more people that were so called made an example of in that town would step forward , over the down right lies an shady representation , it can be stopped!!! The Indiana Ethics committee , the State of Indana Bar association ,( not the Shelby co bar / chapter) do not report anything to Shelby's local unless its the initial complaint, you will not get anywhere , more than likely it will end up file 13 so to speak!!!! I know of a similar situation , pic got lost and word s were said on a police report, that were never said!!!!! Hmmmm !! A lot of them need to go!!!! Better sooner than later......

Kent will definitely go to jail if he tries to stay in office. The tide has completely turned. You go to a Barber Shop in town and everyone wants to gripe about him when the topic comes up. He's not popular at all. It's the price you pay for throwing everyone's cousin, nephew, daughter, or son in jail for 20 years for what should have been a misdemenor.

Usually the comments start about how they knew their relative had x problem, but charging him with felony y was total crap considering their was absolutely no evidence and ruined his/her's life. People and families have completely destroyed by some bogus charge that this tiny dude piled just to slight the justice deck toward his poor jury performance behavior.

I have done jury duty twice and both times this guy made an aweful impression he talked about pens being deadly weapons in one jury and just wanted to portray the girl as a bad person and never spoke to the facts.

Noticed that he just lost another one in jury. He's not even good in jury why don't the loser shelbyville lawyers go to bat for their clients once in a while. This guy is one th eway down.

Prosecutors have been abusing their "nothing to lose" positions for years by bumping up the charges to ridicules. They figure if they charge someone with 100 charges they will at least get one or two to stick. The idea being that juries will figure where there is smoke there is fire.

The jury selection process in this county is oriented toward ensuring the whitest, and oldest jurors are selected.

If Kent Apsley is so good, why don't county prosecutors office pay the legal expenses for the charges they drop or are dismissed. Meaning if he charges someone 100 times for the same crime and only gets 2 convictions he has to pay legal costs for the other 98 bogus charges. Bet public defender would be much more lucrative in this county?

Lawyers like they're numbers and status. Crappy prosecutors would have to walk around with high prosecution expense status over their head.

While we are at it, what is so wrong with letting the jury see the prosecutors plea offers. Let the jury see how serious the prosecution was about the case?

50% of judges in the US are ex prosecutors. The reason being is that decent lawyers find how to make more money elsewhere. Just a couple of changes would really separate the wheat from the government parasites.

your right lets blame the Prosecutors for the wrong doing of the criminals. O by the way lets not forget to blame the victims, who were robbed, killed and taken advantage of by the criminals. YOU GUYS ARE EAITHER STUPID OR HAD BEEN ARRESTED BEFORE.
