I apologize in advance for this long winded blog. I have to admit that I regret wasting time on more Sheriff Franklin's long winded commentary when I really want to work on the many different versions of the Sheriff's Financial Ledgers.
Sheriff Franklin continues by saying that inside my jail we have over 60 classes every week to help inmates make positive life changes. Sheriff Franklin, I hope that is one of the statements that you have made that is actually true. People who are incarcerated need positive reinforcement, education and training, mental assessments, parenting skills training, and counseling for domestic violence. I hope that this statement has more truth to it than the article where you reported that you have a mental ward and qualified staff to run the ward 24X7. I am pleased to report that the mentally challenged lady that was incarcerated in your jail from April 2015 – October 2015 has now been sent to Bryce State Mental Facility for proper treatment. I could ask why the lady wasn't housed in your mental ward with 24X7 qualified caregivers but I already know the answer to that question. The Morgan County Sheriff's Office Mental Ward with 24X7 qualified caregivers was another figment of your imagination.
Now onto the Sheriff's comments on bail and bonding.
