    The county seems to be behind in preventing and prosecuting these cases. The county Coach, Russel Simpson, Charged over a year ago, ordered to have no contact with minors, is still out. And of course out having contact with minors. He braggs about it on facebook how he “texts/talks with minors more than his wife. lol” The community needs a wake up call. The community needsto adopt “Erins Law” and teach children it is not always a stranger that will take advantage of you.

    We need a real Commonwealth’s Attorney. Our guy is too soft on criminals. Plus we need public outrage when criminals get off easy.

      He’s soft unless he can get in the paper or on TV. Then he tries to make a name for himself.

    Those guys in the District Attorneys office do a good job. I doubt they ever get much praise when they are successful and if they don’t win a trial hundreds of armchair morons that got their legal training by watching NCIS or law and order come out of the woodwork. Also, I understand that they really aren’t paid as much as others in their field. When my business was brokeninto, they did a good job, kept me informed and got a conviction with a fair sentence. No complaints here!
