Folks, do any of you believe that Sheriff Ana Franklin comprehends the simple word "corruption"? Sheriff Franklins attributes to the sheriff's office is corruption and destruction. What a disgrace. Most people leave office with high praise and accolades. Going back to January 2011 could we have imagined the outcome? Will she ever realize what she has done? Will she realize what she has put the employees of the MCSO through? Even if Franklin graces the halls and walls of prison she will never believe she has done anything wrong.

Blogger Comments June 19, 2018. Folks, it has long been known that if you are a relative or a relative of one of Ana Daughters husband you get special treatment. Oh! You also get special treatment if you happen to be Jonathan Stebbins who is Alyssa Franklin's common-law husband.
Attached you will find copies of Documents that a Gentlemen sent to the State of Alabama in the form of an Ethics Violation. No action was ever taken against the Morgan County Sheriff for hiring her common-law son-in-law. The evidence shows that the common law son-in-law, the sheriff's daughter, and their child lives in a home that is owned by sheriff Ana Franklin and her stepfather Huey Sharp. You decide! Is this an ethics violation, abuse of power, or illegal? There are several concerns regarding Mr. Stebbins hiring by the Sheriff.
1. See Revenue Commissioners Property Statement of Home belonging to Sheriff Ana Franklin:
2. PERTINENT LAW PERSONAL USE OF OFFICE – Section 36-25-5(a) states: "No public official or public employee shall use or cause to be used his or her official position or office to obtain personal gain for himself or herself, or family member of the public employee or family member of the public official, or any business with which the person is associated unless the use and gain are otherwise specifically authorized by law. Personal gain is achieved when the public official, public employee, or a family member thereof receives, obtains, exerts control over, or otherwise converts to personal use the object constituting such personal gain.”
3. Mr. Stebbin's personnel actions: See uploads attached.
4. Mr. Stebbins did not meet the minimum requirements of the initial background check as identified in the Morgan County Sheriff's Manual. Nor was a background check conducted on Mr. Stebbins as is required by the Morgan County Sheriff's Office.
5. Mr. Stebbins was arrested for and subsequently convicted of 1st Degree Burglary.
6. Mr. Stebbins was spending time in the Limestone County jail during part of his employment with the Morgan County Sheriff's Office. As verified by Morgan County employees. He was charged with Contempt of Court and 3rd Degree Burglary and was reportedly in jail on his first day of work. His supervisor was told by the sheriff if they had any problems with his absence from work to contact her directly.
7. Mr. Stebbins was arrested on during his tenure with the Morgan County Sheriff's Department as a Corrections Officer.
8. Mr. Stebbins was paid holiday and or overtime during his arrest on December 23, 2012. The News Courier article stated that Mr. Stebbins was arrested for Contempt of Court 12/23/2012. The contempt of court was reportedly a Burglary 3rd. See paragraph 10 below Leave and Earning Statements.
9. Mr. Stebbins was given favorable treatment by the Sheriff allowing him to receive overtime and or Holiday pay prior to meeting his probationary status which would have ended June 13, 2013 as identified in his personnel action at paragraph 3. See paragraph 10 below Leave and Earning Statements.
10. Mr. Stebbins time and attendance below.
11. The Morgan County Sheriff's Office allowed Mr. Stebbins to resign w/o Adequate Notice approved on February 4, 2013.
Ah! The perks of being the common law son-in-law of Sheriff Ana Franklin, Morgan County, Alabama.
What would the Alabama State Attorney General do if the sheriff involved was a Democrat?
Blogger Comments: We have heard all the comments by the press questioning why a man convicted of manslaughter held in Decatur Corrections was allowed out on work release. One report from Channel 48 news reported that inmate Brown was assigned as a minimum custody and that the inmate had no disciplinary actions over the past 12 months. The story goes on to say that inmates convicted of homicide or manslaughter who are within 3 years of the end of their sentence or parole may be considered for minimum custody. The article goes on to say that Brown was eligible for parole in December 2018.
All mugshots of Timothy Alan Hall have been removed from the internet.
Fortunately, we have the blog...
We want to remind our readers that Timothy Alan Hall who is the first cousin of Derek Sheats, Sheriff Ana Franklin’s son-in-law was charged with vehicular homicide and convicted of manslaughter in Limestone County. Franklin placed an in-household on Hall and within a week he was transferred to the Morgan County Jail. Hall will never see prison walls for the crime he committed while drunk and on dope during the time when he killed the victim. We have heard that Hall drives a vehicle around town. Is that True or False Sheriff Ana Franklin?
Hall has been on work release since he entered the Morgan County Jail. Our sources tell us Hall is out on the streets more than he is in jail. Why didn’t the press ever pick up the story on Hall? We have been reporting on Hall since he entered the Jail in Morgan County.
This is another one of the cases from the Morgan County Jail that people have chosen to ignore. We believe Hall is scheduled for release in 2018. Not that it matters. The only thing Hall does is sleep in the jail. The rest of the time he has had the privileges of freedom that citizens who have never been convicted of a crime hold.
Two sentenced to prison in fatal DUI wrecks in Limestone, By Jean Cole
Two people pleaded guilty to manslaughter Monday in Limestone County Circuit Court and were sentenced to prison in connection with separate fatal wrecks.
In a plea agreement offered by the Limestone County District Attorney's Office, Jessica Jean Lewter, 51, of Huntsville, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in exchange for a 20-year prison sentence, said Limestone County District Attorney Brian Jones. She avoided trial on a charge of reckless murder in the 2013 death of Terrell Kent Hollingsworth, 45, of Decatur.
Also, Monday, Timothy Alan Hall, 31, of 1833 Woodmont St., Hartselle, who was indicted on a charge of reckless murder, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in connection with a wreck that killed Mark Henry Holt, 48, of Toney, on Huntsville-Browns Ferry Road on Aug. 19, 2012. Hall - who apologized to Holt's family for what he had done - was sentenced to 15 years in prison, Jones said.
"They are both eligible for parole sometime in the future," the district attorney said.
Records show Lewter had three previous DUI's before the fatal wreck. She received her fourth DUI — and the reckless murder charge — when she struck Hollingsworth's vehicle on Interstate 565 near Mooresville. The wreck occurred about 7:30 p.m. Sept. 25 in the eastbound lanes of 565, just east of Interstate 65. At the time of the wreck, traffic on 565 was stopped because of a 4 p.m. accident that had killed an Athens mother, Marissa Baugher, and her unborn son, Micah, as well as the driver of the other car, Fredrick Bender, 66, of Vestavia.
Hollingsworth had slowed or stopped his 2006 Range Rover and was waiting at the end of a line of traffic when Lewter’s eastbound vehicle rear-ended his vehicle. He died two days later at Huntsville Hospital. His passenger, Leighann Turner of Trinity, was treated for injuries and released, according to state troopers.
Lewter was traveling about 70 miles per hour in a 60-mph zone and in traffic that had stalled from the previous wreck, according to troopers and Huntsville Police.
Records show Limestone County charged Lewter with DUI in November 2010 in connection with a traffic accident. While the case was pending over an extended period, she was arrested two more times for DUI.
Decatur Police arrested her Feb. 6, 2012. Five months later, on July 4, 2012, Limestone County arrested her again.
After her second Limestone arrest, Jones filed a motion to revoke Lewter's bond on the first DUI case. However, before she was arrested, she pleaded guilty to both Limestone County charges and was sentenced.
These three charges occurred before the wreck in which Hollingsworth was killed.
Authorities said Hall was eastbound on Huntsville-Browns Ferry near Gray Road when his 2011 Volkswagen Jetta crossed the center line and struck a westbound motorcycle driven by Holt about 4:30 a.m.
Holt, the father of two, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Hall was also initially charged with driving under the influence of combined substances and driving on the wrong side of the road.
