To all of you who THINK they know this story just by the media and small talk around this place, maybe you should get your facts straight! I know this couple very well! No! I'm not related but I DO know what happened and how it took place. It is a very sad situation. Very good people. If you think for one second that them making a plea deal is any indication they are guilty, think again. Put yourselves in their situation. As dirty as this county is, I wouldn't want to take anything to trial here. Bollinger and that whole prosecutors office is corrupt! I talked with them today. They are doing what is in the best interest of their children. Our whole family is here for you Tom and Cindy!

I also agree if you take anything to trial in this county you are found guilty no matter what and you get the worst sentence possible i think all is corupt as well i hope there can be some justice for the ones from this county who have been wrongly accused and when they stand their ground and swear to the end that they are innocent and take it to trial hoping for a fair verdict but then you find out the jury was even corrupt what do you do to get justice in this county or at least be treated fairly and not prosumed guilty right off the bat ,

It's obvious that you don't know them very well! Or you would know the job offer he has had! You're probably just one if his dead beat family members or neighbors that think they know it all! ROFLMAO!!!!!

I hope someone catches this bastard out that he has put behind bars for finding a pill in the poor guys pocket and beats the mortal piss out of him and his nasty cuntass wife. Nothing makes me see red more than people that are susposed to protect and serve the people but choose to harrass people for nothing and be more corrupt than anyone. I think all law enforcement that breaks the law should recieve no less than the death penalty. Watch how fast all the corruption stops in law enforcement then. I get a major hardon when I see cops going to the pen because I know they are going to pay dearly and hopefully with their lives. I do have respect for good cops but theres way to many corrupt ones anymore and Iam sick of it. I have seen way to many men,woman and childrens lives turned upside down by making a little mistake and the cops that destroyed these peoples lives do the samething but will never be prosecuted for it. This shit has to stop sooner or latter.

To Hate Corrupt Pigs: Are ya stupid or just plain dumb? You don't know what happened! You are basing your hatred words on "hear say". They are great people! I agree with the comments above..pleaing to this doesn't mean they are guilty! It just means they are trying to do what's best for their kids. And let's face it.. Lawrence county is corrupt! They would Never get a fair trial! At least this way he will be on probation and home with his kids! He is NOT a pig! He is a loving father! Who , by the way, has done nothing wrong!! He is looking out for his kids! Let me tell you, you sound like a dumb a**. Innocent people get wrongly charged everyday! Especially in this corrupt county! His wife is a great person, who loves her children dearly! If you don't know them or the situation... KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!

His training as a patrolman knowing how drugs have moved thur this area should have known better. Just as his wife from hearing it from his job. They even plead guilty. They made mistakes and will pay or them. Not knowing the situation means that I do not make excuses for their behavior. Just because they were good people before they still made a mistakes/mistakes. Good people make mistakes. Sorry the kids are caught in this but they should have thought of that before. They were the ones who put their kids in this situation. This has nothing to do with the county being corrupt or any other excuses. They are adults.

Yes bitch theres been alot of people thats behind bars that loves their kids but the whole family has been turned upside down because of POS corrupt cops thats doing the same thing. Your stupidity and compassion for a corrupt cop and his wife are not getting no tears from me or no one else. They should have their kids removed to a foster home just like everyone else thats fucked with drugs and be prosecuted severly for being a HSP and breaking the law. Tell me bitch,did you feel the same compassion for the people that this man has arrested and went to the pen for the same thing or less?????????? People like you make me want to vomit! Your lucky Lawrence CO is corrupt because all your POS friend will end up getting is a smack on the rist. But if He does walk he needs to keep walking out of this area because he will eventually run into someone that hes fucked over.

I do know them both! And not only should they not have their children they should be kept from them forever! It's bad that Tom is an Ohio state trooper (was) but she was an R.N.! They both were supposed to be taking care of our community and helping others...until they became greedy and only started to care about themselves! And I am right!!!! She was a drug addict I heard it from her own mouth!! And I'm not a neighbor!! Thank u!

its not hear say when you are investigated for over 2 months. and how can you say they didnt do this? was they set up? And I say again how can you not be trafficking when you try to obtain almost 5000 pills like the news said? They are lucky they didnt get trafficking charges added. Tell me what would you receive for having 5000 pills? probably 20-30 years.
