What is wrong with our system? A must read!

What is wrong with our system? I was in court this morning and witnessed a man change his plea from not guilty to guilty on 2 counts of sexually molesting an 8 year old little girl. Judge Hernsberger made him tell the courtroom what he did and told him he must do this in order to get the “deal” offered by the state. He began to explicitly go in to detail and I will spare you the graphic details. It literally made me sick and I thought I was going to vomit. He was sentenced 120 days in jail, a $500 fine and 6 years probation. I could not help but think about how many years of therapy and counseling this little girl will have to have long after his sentence is complete. The very next case was a man charged with drug paraphernalia. He plead guilty and was already on probation for possession of marijuana. His attorney plead on his behalf for the judge to allow him a long term rehab something he has never been offered and he had no other charges or convictions on his record. He was sentenced 5 years in ADC and was ordered to pay a $2400 dollar fine due 30 days from his release. If that is not a hole in our system I don’t know what is! I’m so angry and outraged. That’s your tax money working for you!

PRESS RELEASE from HSPD

On 2/25/18 at approximately 8:20pm, officers responded to a residence in reference to the potential tampering to a case of water bottles. It appeared that two bottles appeared to have been tampered with. The reporting person stated that he had tested the water with a “over the counter” drug test kit and it showed a presumptive positive result for PCP.

The department tested the water with a law enforcement recognized test kit that is PCP specific. Each of the bottles were tested with a negative result. We have taken the bottles and sent them to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for additional testing to confirm our negative results. We have requested the State Crime Lab to expedite the testing, so we can provide the public with accurate information. We are also in contact with the vendor to check for any additional possible tampering. Our detectives are conducting a thorough investigation into the matter. We have had no other reports of similar incidents.

We will update when more information is available.
