All they got were fines. That's some BS. Both are 18I and should have done some jail time.

Don't worry. These 2 punks will end up in jail. The parents should too. Too many people having kids and turning them loose when parenting gets tough.

They both think they are above the law for some reason. The one was on probation a couple years ago as a juvi and did everything except what his probation officer told him to do. Some people can get away with shit but let any other person do the same thing they did and they will surely be thrown under the jail, not placed in it. Guess it all depends on who you know or who your grandparents are. Ron Morgan musta taught one of them well. He does illegal shit everyday and gets away with it because him and his wife are friends with Brookover..go figure!!

LOL you are so full of crap you stink..I agree there should have been more done to the poachers then what they got..But I am pretty sure it didnt have anything to do with Ron and his wife knowing Brookover, heck I know him there are a lot of people friends with him and the other officers. Um they have to have friends also. Brookover has nothing to do with how much time someone gets in jail or the fines they pay, neither do any of the other officers. The judge and magistrate judges decide that according to the laws. Heck you probably know that but wanted to run your mouth against Ron and his wife oh by the way her name is Debbie. She doesnt do anything to anyone so leave her out of this. If you want to talk about them getting off then talk about the laws that are set down for poaching deer, i read the laws for West Virginia maybe you should also. Conviction on deer poaching charges can result in $200 replacement costs for each deer, plus an additional fine of $1,000 to $2,500 for the illegal taking of trophy bucks. There are stiffer fines for repeated offenders, and jail time if convicted.

I believed those bucks should even be considered trophy bucks because they wasn't even that big

I know Ron and what he is about! Debbie is a nice person, but Ron is a freaking thief! And yes I know this for a fact! He has the nerve to sit and downgrade other people when he is no better. He still owes money to a kid for a truck he has. Karma is a bitch and he will get his. As soon as the people catch wind that he sold his 1 ton, it is all bad for him considering they have a signed and dated title to it, which was done by Ron until he paid off the other truck. This isn't the first time he has screwed someone over and I promise it won't be the last. I always thought Ron was a decent person until he stole from a kid!!!! Which is what he did by not paying for the truck and not returning phone calls when the kid or his parents call him. He always was and always will be a thief and a liar!!!!
