No wonder Middlesex approved a much larger courthouse bc all the crooked politicians knew there day was coming. Maybe instead they should have approved an addition to the Saluda Hilton.

Lewis Filling sentenced yesterday, to 20 yrs with all but 3.5 suspended. Leave it to Chillemi to screw up an article. 5 charges, 5 years each is 25 years. 3.5 years suspended on each charge. That leaves 1.5 years per charge = 7.5 years.

Nevertheless, I'm glad to see him go away. He is a criminal, and a raging a-hole to boot. He deserves much more.

Well, Well, you steal $50,000 dollars, this then caused the Rescue Squad to loose over $100,000 dollars in lost credit, gifts, grants and other negative affects and the BUM get's 3 plus years that will actually only really be about 24 months of actual jail time OR LESS with all the " BS " GET OUT EARLY PROGRAMS, THAT OUR LIBERAL SOCIETY NOW OFFERS TO LOW LIFES.

Less than what is deserved for his crimes.

Judge Long threw the book at Filling and well he should. Fillings deserved more. Let's not forget that he was wearing a "trustee" uniform at sentencing. That is rich. He has only been in for a few months and the lying, cheating (let's not forget that he cheated on his wife)embezzler, low life is a trustee. What is up with that? I want to know who he wrote the bad checks to in 1981. He was arrested for nonpayment of child support back then too!! How does someone with a bad check convection get a job with the state government (town administrator) Also, how did he take the oath of office with a convection like that? If anyone has answers to this please post. The SS will not print this information. Now we get to watch Abbott go down too!!

Filling isn't the only one who stole from the town of Urbanna. We will see how Ms. Daniel fares.

Read this week's Sentinel article: Buddy Wyker testified on Filling's behalf. That gives you an idea of Wyker's character... he is as big of a slimeball as the rest.
Xray, you are right, he did not get enough / had too much time suspended.
I hope the State Police don't drop their investigation into the Town's finances. I'd like to see another set of charges come down against him and his cronies on the Council.
