Stephanie Cook appealed her guilty verdict to the State Appeals Court. During the time frame that Stephanie Cook was appealing her conviction she had not gotten into any additional trouble. Stephanie Cook is not a hardened criminal nor were any of the other folks who have made allegations against Joe Coburn.
Stephanie Cook is the caregiver for her grandfather who is home bound. Mr. Cook lives in a world that many of us will eventually advance into. Home bound with dementia, and is not even capable of using a toilet or shower. He is completely dependent on his family as care givers. Stephanie has been that care giver for a long time. She has been sitting in jail since March 21, 2016 awaiting a hardship request submitted to the court. The family has no choice but to allow Stephanie's younger sister, who is not 20 years old. to be her grandfather's care giver.
Hasn't Howell been fired before?
Howell: friend of Sheriff Ana Franklin.
Howell: friend of Joey Coburn reference Coburn and Howell FB. Didn't Coburn just wreck a MCSO vehicle going 115 mph without cause?
If you are a friend you get a free pass. I am pretty sure Stephanie Cook is not a friend of Judge Howell. Nor is Stephanie Cook a hardened criminal. If she was Franklin would have her on work release.
