The town should of placed him on administrative leave while the investagation was on going. I am sure more charges will come out of this. What about his expenses while working for the town? I would look into to his actions while he was supposed to be proctecting the town in a county police car. I don't think sitting next to Bristow's with his girlfriend in the car was proctecting the citizens of Urbanna.

Lewis, is Andy Bury going to be your LAWYER,
maby he can help you become the treasurer of Middlesex Fire Department, contact the Cassells on how to embezzell them, and how they both got away with it. as the State Police look into more on the Sheriff, they should lock up most all of the Urbanna Democrats, Liberals, wife beaters, along with the towns drunkard old liberal democrat lawyer BP, and the rest of the faggots all at the same time, what a disgraceful bunch that are in this town.

Pineapple, good name for you, brainless, do you love the thief that steals from you, sure you do, and Monkees fly.
Filling is a small time want to be somebody just like most of the big time want to be somebody,s, good
at stealing other peoples money, being Barney Fife, and the thing is, all those Town Council Dummies who supported the Lewis Filling Police Department, should all resign, and admit thier stupidiy, same is true for them having that damn lawyer they have looking after things, right on, he's looking after things all right, wake up people, turn the town back over to the county, get the locals out of the power game they keep playing, Urbanna, does not need a Mayor, Administrator, Town Council, maintenance employees,
etc. Stop the Duplication and waste, let Middlesex County take care of Urbanna just as it does for Hartfield, Saluda, Deltaville and Wateview, shut down Town Hall and get out of playing politics.

xray, you got it right that time. Filling has been shaking down people in this town for years. He skimmed... what, 20% off the top for himself from each building permit that came through his office. Just ask a few local contractors and you'll get the story. Don't think for a second that he has kept it all to himself. It's all been spread around. Same thing goes for Bill Thrift. He's been pocketing the cash from the FD forever, the State Police just haven't caught up to him yet. And he bullied out Joe when he made a stink about it.

Oh well Town of Urbanna got what they deserve. Fillings had no business driving around in a marked police car and had not been through any police academy which means he was not certified as a police officer. That's illegal by State Law. Back in the early 1990's the town had a very nice young police officer that was from Gloucester who was run over real bad by the town and treated dirty and was never given any credit for some of good things he accomplished. Now their name is mud for sure.

Early rumors from the courthouse today say that while Filling was scheduled to face a 2-day jury trial starting today, he pled guilty to all 5 felonies. Apparently the judge was not to happy to be jerked around, and put him in jail until sentencing on Feb 14th.
Has anyone seen any news articles yet to confirm this? The Southside Sentinel is not always prompt and forthcoming with information.

He's in the Jailhouse, He's in the Jailhouse now, no more stealing, no more fun, just sitting and waiting for Abbott to come.

each count has a possible 20 year term, no parole, But, if he is in for 7, I will be surprised. Find out Feb. 15, 2012

Return Urbanna back to County Management, afterall, how many more mistakes can one simple town council make before the whole town is swollowed up into bankruptcy, law suits, ect, by wanna be politicians, who are playing congress in that town.

Come on people of Urbanna, WAKE UP, You had Sapione, then Fillings, Megan, Janet, Andy, how many stooges can one town elect or hire.

Turn the town back over to the Middlesex County board of Supervisors, a more efficient cost saving and professional manner of government.

You don't need a Mayor, Town Council, Town Administrator, tax collector, Embezzeler, and crooked cop, sheriff, and so on, Stop the insanity.

Do keep in mind, Mr. Fillings pleaded "GUILTY" to each of the (5) separate charges, so this say's it all as to his guilt.

As far a contributions to the Rescue Squad, they do a great job, and it could be your life they save, so please contribute to their work, they must have the
contributions to function.

These things happen in the real world, and as long as
they are brought to justice, all will be well, I am just hoping HE WILL SPEND MORE THAN 5 ACTUAL YEARS IN PRISON, WE WILL KNOW ON FEB. 15, 2012.

Now we wait on Sheriff Abbott's day of reckoning.

yes. Mr.Filling was jailed..but can we be sure it was in this alone? Rescue does do a wonderful job,that why it sickens me to think someone would take the little money they get to save lives.

Bushey days soon, once Lewis Fillings gets his cell all comfy with his pictures and things the way he wants them, he will get a cell mate, yeah, old Lawman Guy will be mosey on in soon, den we can sit back and wonder how long before his crazy hotheaded replacement takes to MUFF UP MIDDLESEX even more.

It will happen, just give him the rope, he will do it, just like Fillings and Abbott, he has a real power to the head way, what a jerkoff he is.

Ever notice a "GLF Lawncare" truck driving around middlesex? That's Filling's personal lawncare biz. Saw the truck today, don't know who is driving it. I take comfort in knowing that whoever is out there using Filling's mower probably isn't sending him a check. Filling's getting a taste of his own medicine now.

I want to know when the charges will come down on his misuse of funds during his time as Town Administrator and Mayor.

Fillings, oh my, wonder how the Thanksgiving Turkey was, think is was moist, tender, huuum, he could have had Thanksgiving at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond for the next 100 years for the $50,000 he must pay back with INTEREST, and with his xx years
in the Jailhouse with all the boys from the hood
as his new buds.

My-My, that was some big ass mistake, he is 66 now, will be, 67,68,69,70, 71,72, 73, 74,75,76,? one of them numbers is his out of jail birthday party, don't know which one. Maby he can get his old job back as Mayor of Urbanna, they are just backwards enough to elect him.

Turn the town back over to Middlesex County people, use your heads, it gives more benefits at less cost, stop being so elitist, the better than all others in the county attitude is wrong, and ignorant.

My my there is finally evidence to prove how crooked Middlesex and Urbanna really is. My business used to sell t-shirts stating "where in the hell is Urbanna". Guess we all know where Urbanna is. It is where all the crooks and want to be crooks flock to in drones. I always voiced my opinion about how corrupt the town government was all way down to the low man on the pole. That is why I left after on 18 months of being their. Between the Cassell's, the old drunk lawyer BP , Dwayne Hardy (ex Middlesex sheriff deputy), and Filling to just name a very few. Those along with many others turned my ex into a person of the same caliber as they are. A person that would smile to your face and offer solice and gratitude then turn around and stab you and run as fast a they can with your money. Many thanks to all the many Urbanna role models.
