What does it matter it's the Suffolk Sheriff's son? Was the Sheriff driving drunk?

dont worry. The officers will be encouraged not to appear and the charges will be dropped from lack of evidence. this is only one of the possibilities. Another is that he will never see a day in court because the prosecutor will not find any merit in prosecuting the sheriff's family member. Just be thankful noone was killed.

I agree, but they should be posted on the front page.

The son represents the father. Did your parents not teach you that when you were a child? I taught my sons when they leave the home they represent me. It's called family. It's called respect. It has been lost as a family value.

YEA,START SHOWING ALL THESE DUI DRIVERS IN THE PAPER ALONG WITH THE MEN THAT PICK UP POSTITUTES ON THE STREETS AND ARE CAUGHT. POST THEIR MUG IN THE PAPER. JUST LIKE THEY DO THE MOVIE STARS,,,WHEN THEY DO SOMETHING WRONG. THEY MOST THEIR MUG ALL ON THE INTERNET AND IN THE NEWS. WHY DON'T THE PO-PO, DO THAT. IN FACT WHY DON'T THE JUDGE ORDER THIS. I WONDER,,,,CAN THIS BE DONE? DO ANYBODY KNOW?

While I 100% agree on prosecuting the case and all, did anyone else catch the fact that he wrecked his vehicle trying to avoid a RED-LIGHT RUNNER?

Had Raleigh Jr. not been Driving Under the Influence, he would have had better reflexes to avoid plowing into a quaint and cute building.

He was 40 something years old. I teach my son the same but what can this guy do about an adult. You're simple.

Very good point and I agree with you fully. My point was, would he have been charged if it was just a routine stop and he had not caused all of that damage? Not making excuses, but how many times have I been pushed off the road by bad drivers.... there may not have ben anywhere to go other than the building...

Woah...It's about time! Just try to keep "Sr.'s" influence out of the courtroom. I know how it works. There are too many people bowing and scraping to the sheriff for "Jr." to be carted off to jail for any length of time. There's ALWAYS an excuse and too many lies that get through the system. Why is it that citizens of Suffolk don't vote "Sr." out of the picture, once and for all?! Me and my family have been victims of "Jr.'s" menacing & evil ways. That's why I moved away. Lock up the keys to the jail! Keep him in there! I'm sure there are many of his 'victims' out here that could write a book!

See, when the Jr's of this world laugh at the legal system because they know that Dad (the sheriff) Will make sure they get off with no charges, this is when the citizens of Suffolk should stand up and protest (if it does any good). I think I read something somewhere where another son had gotten a DUI..and that was the son of a sheriff, too. Unfortunately,
"Family ties" have made this nation what it is today. I got a sample of "Sr.'s" power and influence, years ago, and domestic violence was the issue. No one saw news of that, did they?

If I were in Suffolk, VA, right now, I'd want the drunks and the drugees off the street! And the sheriff out of office.

IT'S FUNNY THAT THIS MAN IS OUT HERE ON THE STREETS WITH HIS CRIMINAL HISTORY. OH THAT'S RIGHT HE WAS CONVICTED OF A FELONY SENT TO PRISON, SERVED TIME AND WOULDN'T YOU KNOW IT, JR HAS A CLEAN AND CLEAR CRIMINAL HISTORY! HOW DO YOU THINK THAT ALL DISSAPEARED? I DIDN'T THINK PEOPLE WITH FELONIES WERE ABLE TO CARRY FIREARMS, WELL SINCE HIS RECORD HAS BEEN WIPED CLEAN HE IS ABLE TO GO HUNTING AND GO TO TURKEY SHOOTS WITHOUT A PROBLEM. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS SYSTEM. JR SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS ACTIONS, BUT SR IS HAVING EVERYTHING SWEPT UNDER THE RUG!!!
