Ashley don't listen to any of these sick freaks on here. Take care of yourself and don't worry about what people say. They will always be bashing someone. It's just you right at the moment. Just ignore these idiots! Shame on you all for bashing Ashley she didn't do anything.
No, the sick freak is her daddy!! No one cares about Ashley, she is the one that brought her name to this.

This is completely ridiculous you all are bashing a man and his family, but what gives you the right to judge??? Are you perfect? No, I didn't think so and i believe someone tried to pull the jesus card when they were bashing ashley for being lesbain Well you made yourself look real dumb there because this was started to dog a man for doing something that would be considered a sin right?? Being gay is also a sin but so is judging someone. And i dont know what your bible says but mine says that all sins are the same which means none are greater then the other. The man made a misstake just like i'm pretty sure everyone has but ohh yeah he's was worse so lets all condemn him. I have respect for ashley standing up for her dad because he did give birth to her, and we would all do the same if it was our family. Don't get me wrong what he did was wrong no doubt about it, but who are you all to judge and punish him. We have a judical system for that, and I'm sure none of you are smart enough to be part of it so don't try and act like you are. I also just want to say that I'm not ashleys friend even though I did grow up in the same grade as her. And both of the sides of argueing about the better mommy thing is dumb like dont get on here and bash people just shut your mouth do you and raise your kid to the best of your abilities. The best thing that could happen is this thread get deleted, because this is the wideman families bussiness and thats that

Hey "What a joke", I don't think her father gave birth to her. That would have been her mother. And as far as the Wideman's family business, maybe. But the father took it public as a result of his arrest and the children come in here and make statements to keep this thread going.

And you saying people here are not smart enough to be a part of the judicial system. Does that mean that should Mr. Wideman's case have gone to trial that anyone that might have posted on here is to dumb to have sat on the jury? That sounds like you are judging people. Are you not?

You say people should just shut their mouths. Might want to think about practicing what you preach. If you don't want to read about it, quit looking. If you don't want to hear about it, don't make a post.

Just to let you know, my brother and I only brought our names up cause we were stickin up for our father. I hope you would have done the same for your father. And to everyone on here. If he is such a "sick freak" then why is he out of jail? CLEAN? Oh wait! thats right. None of you knew that did you. cause you only knew what the news said. Get your shit straight before you go doggin on someones relative. THANKS!!!!!!

Listen, i don't know what the big fuss is about. What a man f
does on his own property is his own business. Me, I like to shoot cats, smoke weed and post fliers around town looking for an a fine Christian woman to share in these joys! I wish the government would stay out of the mans business!

If anybody wants to stop by to smoke a big fat joint, drink some rot gut and shoot cats with my rifle, the stop by wounded rig inc!

Again someone is posting under my name, the post before this one is not me, those of you that know me, know that is not the way I am.
To the imposture, maybe you could grow some balls and post you're opinions under your own name. Be warned, you might piss some people off by doing so.
Any coward can throw rocks from the bushes, it takes a man to stand toe to toe. I know you are most likely not smart enough to know what that last part meant, ask someone maybe they can help ya.

Wes is not a freak. If he did what he supposably did, wouldn't he still be in jail or prison? hmm...thats a no brainer. Maybe ya'l should get your facts straight before you start pointing fingers. Rumors rumors rumors. And Wideman is and will be a great mother, regardless of what sex she is interested in. Her love for her baby and the babies love for her will be unbreakable regardles if it has 2 moms or a mom and a dad. Get over it! The only reason why Wideman and I were going to "beat" up Hayli was because she threatened our babies in the first place. haha okay thats a terrific mom let me tell you. For those who have children, wouldn't you want to protect your baby? Hayli gets "esccorted" out of Callis, goes back to Callis for the halloween party, and the night that she was threatening your children she was not with her KID...Yes that is a great mom. Im pretty sure when you lay on your back and get pregnant is when you STOP acting like a stupid teenager and act like a parent or better yet an adult! Gosh ya'l are so stupid! Get your facts straight before you ruin peoples lives by trash talking, ignorant people!

He's not in jail because he accepted a plea offer. He ADMITTED GUILT! Part of the plea. So, get your facts straight.

The only reason why he took the offer was to see his grandson being born. I know my facts. I'm not so sure you do.

He pled to a felony and agreed to be a registered sex offender to see his grandson born? Instead of posting bond to allow him to be out of jail to see his grandson born and until his trial? Yeah. Sure. OK. Most innocent people take plea deals which require them to admit guilt and to become registered sex offenders. NOT!

You mean the part of how the images were reported? Or how they were found on his computer? Or how he blamed a family member then a friend? Or the part he was adamant on going to trial? Or the part of the plea he accepted in open court? I know more than you think.
