I could have told you that something stunk with IBR ten years ago. I predict that many more people in Page County will see other "community leaders" fall as the full results of this investigation.
My suggestion to anyone who has had any charges filed against them by Presgraves or his deputies is to challenge them again in court; how could anything they said under oath be trusted?

I am a new "part time resident" of Page Co., and not sure what the IBR thing is. I try to keep up with things by reading newspapers that cover Page Co. I have been talking with people in law inforcement as well as politicians from neighboring counties. Most speak highly of "Sheriff Dan" and think that partly , he was set up for some of the charges. Others, he may or may not have had a hand in. I for one discount a lot of stuff that is said by people who make a deal to save their own ass. If I were facing a prison sentance and could get out of it by changing my story, by god, I'd tell the fed's that I'd say whatever they wanted me to say. So, I say to the people that will sit on that jury.......... Go in with an open mind and listen to everything that is said by everyone, and decide for yourself who is telling the truth. If you have an oppinio0n that is contrary to everyone else, stick to your guns. Take each count seperately and give "Sheriff Dan" a fair trial.(Guilty, Not Guilty, OR A Hung Jury)

Being here Page County for the last 4 years, what I have found is that there is A LOT of rumors, grudges etc. I don't know how anyone could get a fair trail in this area regardless of the case. So many people are out for blood and will do everything in their power to make the person being brought up on charges pay, regardless of that person being innocent or not. This is an area that has history and along with that history comes grudges.

I am long time resident , and moved to get away from the drama of the Page Co., there not much fair unless you got deep pockets. I seen some of the best people go to jail for stupid stuff and the things the deeppockets got in trouble for was far past worse...and they WALKED!
I for one , know Danny and as a man he is good hearted, but got that badge and it changed him. He and the whole peanut gallery chanced..I for one thing IBR.. should not have walked, that I know FIRST hand.. the things that go on in that company and they way they treated one of my family memeber was a SIN... the whole darn gang needs to be put in church and ask for all their SINs to be forgiven..{be there a long time.. if they do!} I think everyone deserves a fair shake.. but like I said PAGE COUNTY, its who you know and who gets blown..

IBR is a company that came in and bought a bunch of land and farms. I personally was effected by them having worked on a dairy farm. You should be more in touch with the county if your going to be a part time resident, and leave the locals alone.

I was a long time resident as well, and IBR makes me sick! One of the reasons that I left was to make a better life for myself, and my family. I know danny as a person and can say that he has a good heart too. He is not the only person in that county cock fighting. That has been going on since I was a boy growing up there. You simply have to let those kinds of things go.

Page County is a beautiful area. Which my family came and settle in (1991), my mother loved the area and my family did as well. AND I loved raising my boys there, but had to leave. I know both parties here, and the thing that gets me is why?
Danny does have a good heart, or thats what I have seen, he was a family friend of my boyfriends and he never ,ever.. used a cross word to anyone I know of. But as far as the GANG of IBR..they are all really croooooooooooksssssssssss and well others words a lady cant use.THEY need to be locked up ! Only thing I can say for this whole mess.. COCKFIGHT'n will always go on, Danny was caught , and not the others. SAD, but Just know there are people who do believe in you DANNY!
