He just needs to learn from his mistakes instead of being bailed out everytime he gets into trouble. He might learn this time.

he got in trouble approx 2001-02 for stealing a fire dept radio and the only reason the charges were dropped is because he somehow returned the radio to the owner. He has been in trouble over multiple things but somehow keeps it underwraps

If he did actually do it then he needs to man up. He has been in trouble before, I know first hand. I don't understand however how he lost his job in Hart Co. but yet its ok for him to work in Bullitt Co. To me this just seems wrong. The lost thing we need is another crooked thief working to serve the public on an emergency level.

I completely agree with you because if he did that in Hart County, what makes Bullitt County so sure he won't do it up there. Plus, everything he stole at Shepherdsville Fire and Rescue and they still keep him on the department, that seems so wrong. And how he treats the people in Bullitt County when they call 911 is so degrading, I even have a tape of his inconsideration toward a male on the phone and the fact of it is, is that he shared with others who weren't in the department, which, of course, is breach of confidentiality and if the coordinator finds out about that, he may not have a job there either. But who knows because he was fired from Bullitt County Dispatch in November of 2004. The fact is he seems to get away with everything. How is that?

How is it that a fireman and corrections officer who has felony charges against him is still able to work in Law Enforcement?
Just a thought... because he's still around... just a little further up North.
I guess backround checks really don't exist huh...

The only thing I can comment on is everyone who disagrees with the situation needs to call the coordinator at Bullitt County 911 and complain to him about it because I'm not even sure he knows about the felony charges. Anyone interested in knowing the # it's 502-543-7074.

Seems by reading all these comments there is many people who know a lot more on this guy than are realy telling. It appears he is very guilty about many things. Now is the time for truth,this guy needs to learn.

It sure is funny how when someone gets into trouble it seems all the former Fire Chiefs, disgruntled
Ex-Girlfriends, Ex-Wives, and former co-workers come out of the woodwork. It is easy to come to a public forum and bash someone without putting your name
on a post or offering any real evidence. You are nothing but gutless cowards who try and make your case by offering up rumors of past wrongdoings.
For everyone’s information the people in charge of all departments where Brent is employed or volunteers have been made aware of what he has been charged with.
I'm sure Brent has made people mad in the past and they are lining up to say bad things about him. Fact is that the personnel on Shepherdsville and Bonnieville Fire support Brent and don't rush to belittle him on the public forum instead giving
him the right to go to court and wait for the outcome. Brent has never been charged with
any crime before this incident. Once again, Brent has never been charged with any crime before this incident. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't have their facts straight and either needs to stop spreading lies or maybe Brent should sue you for libel. Maybe you need to go to court and lose your house and savings because you have nothing better
to do in Hicktown than post lies on here. For the person who knows first hand that Brent has been in trouble with the law before I would love to know who you are. I guess since you are another gutless coward who won't list your name you don't really know anything. For the people who don't seem to know why a person who has been charged with a crime can
still work, it's because you have to prove what you charge people with. Would you like it if someone accused you of something and fired you from your job without anyone bothering to check the facts? That’s the whole reason for the court system I do believe.
Oh and whoever has a tape of Brent on a call made to Bullitt County Dispatch that is a "breach of confidentiality" you need to realize that when you call 911 the call is public record and can be disseminated to anyone who requests it. If you want something to be confidential then talk to your doctor or attorney. By the way when Brent was fired
in August 2004 (not November 2004 as you incorrectly stated) it was because he missed an in-service training. The problem with that was because two others missed training they were not disciplined at all let alone fired. The county then called him and
brought him back to work avoiding any civil legal action. Check your facts kids.

In reply to a Michael Stephens statement,rumor has it that a Mike Stephens was in possession of one of the radios that this man had stolen. By any chance are you that person? And I agree,the courts will find the truth out and convict if he is guilty. I heard he had the radio,so what does that make him. I am sure there are a lot more facts that will surface before all is said and done.Hopefully all truths will come out and not just someone trying to protect their own guilt.

Ya know Michael Stephens, you're the one who is suppose to be Brent's friend but you ratted oh so fast when the detectives threatened to put you behind bars, so no one really has to give you their name just because you are already round a bout threatening them "hiding like a bitch" come on. You knew it was wrong to take that radio from Brent after he stole them, so what are you attempting to accomplish, trying to win his friendship back, or he knows so much shit on you that you are taking up for him once again. I'm sure Brent will get what is coming to him, you can't steal National Security Radios from the military and get away with it, even though he seems to get away with everything else, like, uh, stealing that scope from Hart Co 911 for his gun, shall I continue. So if you'd like to continue to insult other people and their comments then you need to look at your own guilty self and think a minute. By the way, you and Brent were awfully "close" back in Nov. of last year, so I guess I can understand you don't want to lose your buddy!

Thiefs always hide,,,,don't they. Military radio's!!!!!!!!Oh my goodness!!

In the last post I failed to address the issue of a scope Brent took from Hart County 911. I'm not sure as to what you are talking about. The only thing I remember was a problem in locating Brents property (i.e. a pistol) when the former Sheriff left. Regardless of what other petty crap you and your Mommy plan to pull out of your hats I find your attempts to one up me sad. I would expect something more colorful from a liar of your caliber. I guess you fooled Brent into thinking you were a different person than you were but now we see the other side of the coin. As far as Brent and I go he is my best friend and I wouldn't go to the lenths you have even if I decided not to be his friend any longer. High school was over a long time ago. Get over it.

I was wondering Michael Stephens.....You said you were his best friend then why did you sell him out to the officers over the radio???? I think that you need to grow up and stop backing a thief, but apparently you are one too, so I guess I can understand why you are still backing him!!!!! My question is why are you still loyal to him after everything that he has done? I believe that Brent is not only a thief but has many other skeletons in his closet as well.....as given in previous comments posted.

Yes, Brent does have skeletons in his closet, let's see, getting fired from Hart Co. 911,fired from Hart Co Jail, fired from Warren Co Jail, divorced, and managed to screw up his former girlfriends lives as well. I can come up with multiple other things, but let's just name a very few, shall we. Maybe everything became too much for him and now he knows his world is falling apart, God works in mysterious ways ya know.

HEY MIKE, I COULD BE WRONG BUT THAT SURE SOUNDS ALOT LIKE KIM FROM MEDICAL WHO USED TO WORK WITH US AT THE JAIL. FROM WHAT I REMEMBER SHE WAS FIRED AND ESCORTED OUT OF THE BUILDING BY THE CHIEF DEPUTY FOR FAILING A DRUG TEST AND LYING TO TRISH WHEN ASKED ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE. I GUESS IT'S OK FOR HER TO MOVE IN WITH BRENT BY TELLING HIM THAT HER HUSBAND ABUSED HER, BUT REALLY DIDN'T. HER TALKING ABOUT BEING A GOOD FRIEND, I GUESS A GOOD FRIEND SNEAKS YOUR 15 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER TO ANOTHER COUNTY SO SHE CAN DO DRUGS, DRINK ALCOHOL AND HAVE SEX WITH BLACK GUYS. PEOPLE IN GLASS HOUSES SHOULDN'T THROW STONES.
