Compared to all the post when he first got arrested couple of weeks ago, it seems very quiet on this site about the magistrate today. I am sure he has his supporters but where are they now? Because it has become a tragedy and painful. I would not want to face myself if I were him. More to come out.

Like I said before , I hate it for his family....... But here's the deal ....... He don't think too much of his family if he is doing all this........how did the man have time to do his job? I mean it seems to me he must have been busy selling ....... And I'm suppose to feel sorry for him ? It was all good and fine till he got caught .......$20,000 in bail money ...... You think any of that was drug money ? This has been a long time coming ...... It's bout time we clean house...... To make change happen ..... It has to start with you and me ....... If the lawyers and judges are just gonna turn around and slap them on the wrists....... I say get rid of the judges and lawyers too........ Our country is falling apart fast ...... America has become soft .........if your gonna play ...... Then when it comes time to pay ......quit your crying ...... Man up ........ A drug dealer is a drug dealer ...... Don't care who you are ...... Who you know...... Who knows you...... Who you go to church with ...... None of that matters ....... What matters is...... You broke the law ..... Now your business becomes public ...... Honestly I can't wait to see who else falls ........ I hear it's coming.......... Stay tuned!!!!!!!

Lets talk the sympathy card....... Everybody he has sold to was someone's daughter , son, mother ,father etc....... Are we saying that it was okay to sell to them because of their addiction ? Seems a cowards way to make a living if you ask me !!!!!

I couldn't agree with you more! Maybe he will share the rest of them... I'd say more off the 1295 area too!

And he doesn't even have the courtesy to resign his position as magistrate. He was even caught selling the first day of the fair that he loves so much. Sad excuse for a so called leader of the community.

I forgot we live in the times where you are innocent until PROVEN guilty. I'm sure they had plenty if evidence to arrest him now they have to have enough to convict him. I just sit back and let the courts do their job. Public opinion don't mean a hill of beans and never will.

i follow you ...... But the facts are the facts ..... I do not doubt for one minute the charges will be pleaded down to a city ordinance fine or some shit like that ....... If that's what you mean ...... But otherwise , the innocent until proven guilty thing has already taken place for me ...... He wouldn't have been falsely charged by any drug enforcement agency ...... It's just not good practice !!!!!!!!

Oh no I'm not saying he was falsely arrested...I'm sure the proof was there by all means. What I'm saying is the courts will look and see if he has ever been in trouble before (which I'm assuming not) and will account for a lesser charge (again I am assuming). I know Garrard Co. Has bigger fish to fry as well. Drugs are a bad deal whether they are prescription or not...

Well, he is probably going to be good. We certainly do have a lot of little fish to fry before Ronnie. He was out Saturday evening, getting ready for his special night. Maybe a little pool as usual. Maybe a little fun. Always special to see him in his new suspenders, new tooth pick and grinning from ear to ear. But if you know how it works, you know it isn't to bad 1st drug offense. Had to be a silly error on his part. Hopefully he got that other charge expunged since he never plead guilty and fought...I was thinking of saying a prayer for him as he requested in the paper but just watching him out, I figured I would save that prayer for now.

For heavens sake save your prayer? Yep that's the thing to do....cause I'm sure you have never done anything wrong. You're problems just didn't land u on the front page of the paper. I can almost guarantee that most of the people writing on this topic have given a left over prescription pill to a friend at one time or another. I have. That too is against the law. So I'm as guilty as anyone else. I shouldn't have done it and NEITHER should he (sold them) but I'm not perfect and obviously he isn't either. All you can do is apologize, accept responsibility for wrong doing and face the consequences. Let him face the justice system and give him that prayer. The Lord will humble him...trust me.

My parents taught us to fess up, never lie about any ill deeds that we did. I stole apples from our neighbors orchard. But if you have no Lord in your heart, then there must be something else to humble you. Oh if you only knew the rest. I'm sure he is praying and I'm sure he is still doing other things. But part of his bond conditions might include drug testing, it should.

I agree with you and what your parents taught u, mine the same. I'm sure he has done more, and the system should be strict. Our system is broken.
