I know people will start saying things after I leave my comment,but that's fine,everyone's entitled to their own opinion.But I am very good friends with Ashley and yes,she may have some problems,but she is not some horrible or terrible person that some of you would like to think she is. She has always been there for me as a friend when I needed her and has never refused me for anything. I think right now,she needs psychiatric help along with rehab for sure because she is going thru alot both mentally and being an addict. Unless you have never been addicted to drugs in your life,then you have no idea what a person would do to be able to make themselves feel better. Ashley has been thru some things that only a few of us could ever even begin to imagine,for one,she was with a man for a few years even though she knew he was dying of cancer,but she loved him with her whole heart and soul,she took care of him over the years they were together and didn't care and didn't hesitate,she did it because she was in love with him. He died on her and he actually took his very last breath in her arms which is alot for a girl her age to have to deal with. She never really got the chance to say good bye to him or go thru the entire grieving process the way most people do.She was headed on a path of self destruction after losing him because she felt like she lost her whole world and because she has done some messed up things and got herself into trouble does not mean she is a bad person because she's not,she is actually one of the closest friends and people I have in my life and has never once done me wrong. She needs the right kind of help,both psychiatric for the loss she suffered and for her addiction problem. Not that just going to rehab would solve the drug problem,but it would start her on the right path she needs to take to get back to living and having a normal life. So,before anyone passes judgement on her please stop and think,because this could be your daughter instead of someone else's,then how would you feel? You would want what was best for her I'm sure. No matter what,she will always be my friend and I will always be here for her!!

These "people" got arrested for using a shovel to force their way into someone else's home and the judge releases them on bail with a stern warning not to smoke marijuana? Granted it was another drug dealer's residence but they have more then demonstrated that they are a danger to the community and should be held WITHOUT bail!

Then why aren't her good friends and family helping her? Why not an intervention? Why isn't the justice system recognizing this. Instead she is being allowed to continue on the wrong path, she is stealing and hurting innocent people. She has no right to take and violate other peoples lives. I feel sorry for her if she has been through such traumatic events in her life but a lot of people face this everyday and worse, I know people personally and choose not to react in this way. Her friends and family should go to extremes to help her. I would for my family. Making excuses will not help her. Only your actions can. She is going to continue on this path until she has dug her herself such a deep hole with the legal system that prison time will not help her condition. She has already damaged her reputation in hopes for any kind decent employment with out a great deal luck. If and when she is able to over come this and she is a good person as you say, she will have a lot of guilt to deal with and never be able to replace the losses she has caused to people as I know personally from being someone has suffered from her actions. She needs to stop now, before it is so big she will never be able to over come her past. So friends and family help her if you feel she is worth help...It makes me wonder if certain people in her family would help due to the fact that her sister Jammie gave her information she shouldn't have....when she new it would only add to Ashley's demise. Then Jammie has the nerve to bail on her landlord owing her back rent. Just to get way from the problems she caused. Very sad....

I know Ashley i have my entire life! She is a caring n dedicated person . Addiction has sent her myself and MANY people not only in this town but in the world down a path that is uncontrollable. Noone has the right to pass judgment bc most of you on this site are drug addicts yourself n i would love to see your mugshot oh wait i probably have.! She is where she needs to be her life is about to change drastically for the better. I glad shes getting the opportunity she is most people in addiction cant get this lucky. She may have done wrong but thats not the person she is that simply what drugs do to you. So quit acting like your better take a look at your own life.! This website is shit n just goes to show you how people in this town dont appreciate or use anything the proper way it should be!! Thought for the day "when you point a finger at someone remeber theirs always at least 2 pointing back at you"!!! Take a look peers!

You must not be aware of addiction. Noone person matters to an addict its a very selfish consumed hole.! Family has tried to make her see where her life was goin but we are not the ones who can make her change it all has to be done by her. And once she makes her way into sobriety she will learn a new way of life and how to deal with everything she has destroyed including herself.! She can do this and walk out with her was held high its possible and trust and forgive can happen.!

All you morons can make excuses for her. Bottom line is she knows right from wrong and she was not held down and forced to do drugs.
She's just another loser who will sucking the teat of the taxpayers

Sad part is you know her scumbag sister jaime put her up to it. She prolly got money or pills or something. Had ashley do the dirty work.She don't wanna get her hands dirty.And as far as bailing on her landlord...doesnt surprise me she's a scummer who has never worked a hard day in her life.Had a bunch of money and p*ssed it all away.Now shes back to renting lmao.Nothin but a waste of space.As for Ashley hope she gets the help she needs.

Thank you for posting that Ashley is getting the chance to get help and make a difference in her life. I know addiction and loss is devistating, my post was a plea for someone somehow to help her. I am very glad to hear the process has began. Tell Ashley even though I was affected by some of her actions that the frustration I felt at first is now sadness for her and I am very hopeful for a positive outcome for her. Tell her to stay strong and wish her the best of luck for me.....

U really think the judge is off drugs? HAHAHA! That's the biggest laugh I've had in awhile.Judge Jerome Richards aka Jerry has snorted more coke up his nose than anyone in this town.He can pretend he's innocent and has never done a drug in his so called self pro claimed "perfect" life but he seems to forget about his past and the women he use to take out to the cemetraries for sex after hour parties.

this talk is ridiculous... I was actually at Jaime's when this crime occurred... want the truth?
Ashley ended up showing up at Jaime's the weekend I had stayed. She was with that La'sean guy for what reasons, I cannot and will not ever understand. On a trip to the reservation to get cigarettes, Ashley asked Jaime if there was anything for rent down her road... Jaime told her that there was nothing at the time but the lady next door was going into a nursing home at an unknown date.. Jaime never even said she wasn't home...
that night, Jaime laid down with a headache and ended up staying in her room the whole night.. as for my husband, kids, and myself, we were camping in the living room.. Ashley and the dude had a room in the back.. Ashley came out from her room with La'sean all bundled up and said they were going for a walk.. the place they broke into was next door.. I didn't hear a thing but a car door closed.. My husband got up because we didn't want them into our car.. he couldn't see anything outside... shortly after, Ashley and La'sean came back in... they brought stuff in with them that they said came for there friend Clarence's house... We didn't know anything until the next day...
As for Jaime, she never even said the place wasn't occupied.. and as for her moving.. that had nothing to do with what had happened.. Jaime planned on moving months before that.. It was more like camp living than feeling like a home.. plus the place was very hard to heat.. why stay somewhere that heats the outdoors?
As for her money that she had.. that is her own business... nobody should even care what she did with her money.. it was hers to spend due to medical issues because of the birth control patch from after her oldest daughter was born.. her illness, her money... stop being jealous that you couldn't throw money away...
and lastly...
it is funny that you can sit behind your computer and call her a scumbag.. must make you king of $hit huh? why not say the $hit you feel to her face.. oh yeah that's right.. Because she would BEAT YOUR ASS!!!
