i don't know any of these people, but you folks posting have no idea how Georgia Statutes work. these charges BECAME STATE CHARGES as soon as they were filed.....it is up to the STATE TO PROSECUTE these people (not a person or persons). the justice system in the United States (and states) is so screwed up, the last thing a court wants is a jury trial....they are protracted, long, AND EXPENSIVE...remember, TAXPAYERS pay the court costs (judge and prosecutor salaries, baliffs, court reporter, heat & cool of the building, power, security, jurors, clerk of court and records-keeping/retrieval, copying, administrative of fines,and on and on and on....again, that is at TAXPYERS expense).

now, that said, sometimes the guilty party is charged with some, or none, of these costs, in addition to a fine.......but SOMETIMES, not, too.

the important part to note, is that sometimes the guilty party may not be able to pay! sort of like someone suing another person or cmpany, and being awarded a sum of money....that's great.....but COLLECTING that money is a different matter.

but i digress.

my point is, the court, D.A. office, and State will prefer a negotiated 'deal' rather than a trial.

it is NOT up 'to the people' or the victim.

another way to say this, is this way: on a 'person-to-person' crime, once the charges have been levied and filed,it is incumbent UPON THE STATE to prosecute the perpetrator.....THE 'VICTIM' BECOMES NOTHING MORE THAN A 'WITNESS' TO THE CRIME THEY ARE A VICTIM OF.

Soooooo, unless someone (or several 'someone's) who had their car stolen doesn't stay in touch with the D.A., or fails to 'show-up' as a witness, you bet your bottom-dollar there will be a plea-bargain. that's not always a bad thing....the State saves YOUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS, the criminal (especially in 'non-violent' or 'personal-injury/death crimes, a la 'property crimes) gets punished (fines, probabtion, restitution, public-shame, humiliation, likely loss of job, family is shamed, sometimes loss of voting privileges (felonies, and YES, even jail-time).

just sayin....no need to further humilate and 'kick' people while they are 'down'.

it's not a rat in the barrel....it's just how the 'legal' process and system works in our State and Federal courts.

The funniest was these criminals who got on here proclaiming their innocence and then having their families do the same. Then plead guilty. I guess they wanted to prove they and their families could look more stupid than they did on round up day.

Polk County's finest are now disgraced felons. Trash.

Since everyone else has "been to court already", what did the woman over the whole thing get? Johnny is in prison and has been. Just curious why nothing is online about the "boss" of the whole ordeal!

I know. That's why I was curious about her. There is nothing online anywhere about her except the original articles about everyone getting busted.
