Sac County, Iowa, wake up! How long are you going to coddle these corrupt public servants and elected officials? The county needs to investigate County Attorney, Ben Smith and Sheriff McClure once and for all. This policy of protecting your good old boys has got to stop!

This is not the only time Sac County Iowa has ignored protecting its citizens.

Sac County Attorney; Sheriff and assistant attorney general Douglas Hammerand, allowed felony kidnapping charges to be dropped against three Sac County residents after prosecutors failed to file the formal charges in court before a deadline.

Sac County is also the center of attention in the Prosecutorial Misconduct of unheralded proportions in the Tracey Richter murder trial.

How much longer will the residents of Sac County and Early going to have to put up with an unscrupulous District Attorney and inept Sheriff. Dean Stock, Rick Hecht, Ranell Drake, Jack Bensley and the county is leaving itself wide open for many problems, the ramifications could be very costly to tax payers along with criminal cases being overturned.

Tracey Richter is guilty. Stop defending this monstrous murderer who even while in prison sent pictures of her own children to a convicted child molester in prison with a note that said kids are cute and asking the chimo to help by finding a friend to take the rap for her crime. She is willing to sacrifice her own children to a chimo to try to get an alibi. Sick, sick sick!
