I hope Holbrook spills the beans and cleans up this corrupt town. I'm not saying that everything is corrupt about it but we all know it exists. I think Holbrook will plea to lesser charges and give up his connections. I also think there are a lot of nervous people out and about the streets of Morehead.

I hope you are right! Is he being kept in jail for his protection? How far up will this go I wonder?

Why does everyone think this will go higher up. How many Deputy's does it take to provide protection for a price.

Hypothetically, at $50,000 a year, all you need.

Why would he not spill his guts. What's he really got to loose?
I'm not buying his story that he was merely giving a guy a ride. The U.S. Marshall's wouldn't have made the arrest nor would they be keeping him in jail if there wasn't something there.
I hope a lot of people go down is what I hope.
This could be the biggest and best thing to happen here in Morehead as it relates to opening peoples eyes to what goes on behind the sceens here in town.
Good luck with it all Jack but in my opinion all eyes are on you. We all know how much time you spend in Florida.

I agree, he has nothing to lose at this point. Are they keeping him for his own protection or do they think he is a flight risk?

I can't imagine him being a flight risk. They must be keeping him in for his own protection. Or, waterboarding might just be in his future. I sure they don't have many rules and regulations in Carter County. Kidding about that, but I figure the longer he sits in jail the more he will speak. Purely an opinion.

he is more than likly running around the jail as a trustee free as a bird.

Now that would piss me off BUT you are probably right. Him running around the jail being a trustee, I kinda doubt it since the Marshals are involved. The ppl holding him don't want to appear like they are giving him special privileges do they???

I think the entire department and courthouse for that matter should be looked at.

It is on here and no one is forcing you to read it. It is really a big deal that a person in his status would have so much corruption in the sheriffs office. Why would not people be concerned, particularly because it is an ongoing investigation and no one really knows who else is involved. This is a large tragic event for this community and they should start overlooking it already. I do not agree with you at all. A clean community that does not revolve around corruption is worth discussing.

i agree with everyone else,there are bigger fish to be caught,and holbrook was put away by a smaller fish than himself,and the story will go on and on.

He will tell on who he has to to get himself out of trouble. I don't see how he can get around it. I don't think they(law) will be looking for the little fish, they want the big catch on this one and I hope he spills it.

"Holbrook has worked for the Rowan County Sheriff’s department for the past 15 years, and has been in law enforcement for a total of 31 years. He has been suspended from his job with pay."

I have read that last line OVER & OVER..w/ pay!!! Now that is some bullshit!! Getting caught w/ pills & still getting paid...& he's the sheriff's deputy!!
That's wrong!! Maybe he's getting paid UNTIL they find him guilty then he will no longer be paid. OR maybe he will be paid to sit in jail. It is Rowan County!! Glad I no longer live there!!
