Taylor Stevens aka Taylor Brianna on Facebook and Sheriff Ana Franklin Keeping it Quite

Folks, We recently found out that Taylor Stevens is the niece of Roger Dale Stevens who is charged with capital murder for killing his ex-wife Kay Stevens.  If you recall after Stevens killed his wife, he traveled to his workplace and climbed in his big rig truck and locked himself in.  Madison County Sheriff's Department had the stand off completely under control.  Sheriff Ana Franklin pulled up and took over the standoff.  Franklin and the Limestone County Sheriff got into the truck with Stevens and sipped whiskey with Stevens.  Stevens turned himself in to Ana Franklin.  Franklin transported Stevens in her vehicle with no handcuffs and no protective barrier between her and Stevens.  Franklin also promised Stevens she would take him by his daddy's house to see him before she took him to jail.

If you recall Judge Howell denied Kay Stevens protection orders.  Please see previous posts on this subject.

The Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin disgraced herself and her leadership position with her behavior in this case as did Judge Jennifer Howell.  Both of these two people should be removed from office.

It is well known in Morgan County, Alabama that Sheriff Ana Franklin and the Stevens family are close friends.  Did Franklin and Howell conspire against Kay Stevens in her plight to save her own life?  Is Howell's friendship with Franklin the reason that Kay could get no help with the court system? 

Getting back to Taylor Stevens.  Here we have just one more example of how intimately intertwined the Franklins and Stevenes are.   No doubt Ms.Steven is an innocent party benefiting from a questionable relationship among relatives.  But then, there is still one more instance of innumerable examples of nepotism in the wonderful world of Ana.  Corruption is corruption.

It is with deep sadness for the Kay Letson Stevens family that we feel we must blog once more about the relationship Franklin has with the Stevens family.  

Folks it is evident that Taylor Stevens was hired after her uncle Roger Dale Stevens killed Kay Letson Stevens.  This is no accident.

Our county like all other counties in Alabama suffers from a wide range of issues.  Domestic violence being one of those issues.  No person has a right to abuse any other person physically, mentally, or emotionally.  This is a lesson we learned too late to save the lives of Ms. Stacey Jones and Ms. Kay Letson Stevens.  

Most of our local judges are tough on Domestic Violence issues except for Jennifer Howell.  Yes, folks, you got it.  Jennifer Howell, a female judge in Morgan County, Alabama failed not once but multiple times to do the right thing and help Kay Stevens. Kay Stevens was gunned down in cold blood outside the bakery she owned along with her sister in Decatur, Alabama.  Howell said that Ms. Stevens case did not meet the criteria for the issuance of a protection order.  We provided Judge Howell the Alabama Guidelines that constitute justification for domestic violence protection after Kay Stevens death.  Aren't judges supposed to know these things?  Does it take a part-time blogger to show a full-time judge what the rules are?

After Roger Stevens killed his wife in cold blood, he ran.  He ran to his big rig work truck in Madison, Alabama.  Hid in the truck like the coward he is.  Our Sheriff Ana Franklin, yes folks Ana Franklin our female sheriff, rushed to the scene of the stand-off and took over from professional law enforcement who had the situation under control.  Franklin and her side kick Limestone County Sheriff Blakely (AKA Dumb and Dumber) got in the big rig truck with Stevens and sipped whiskey with Stevens until he agreed to turn himself in. Franklin placed Stevens in her vehicle with no handcuffs and promised him she would take him by his house to see his daddy before taking him to jail. 

I do not find this behavior acceptable whether or not it is male or female members of the court or law enforcement agencies. Two female elected officials disgraced themselves and their positions by their conduct in the mishandling of this case before, during, and after the death of Kay Stevens.

We also posted pictures of another woman, Ms. Stephanie Cook, who said she was physically abused by Morgan County Deputy Joey Coburn when she was arrested.  Stephanie Cook was found guilty of a misdeameanor in regards to that arrest.  To date Joey Coburn has never been investigated for that incident.  Stephanie Cook appealed her case to the Alabama Appeals Court.  The court upheld the conviction of the misdemeanor.  Stephanie Cook worked hard to ensure she did not get into any further trouble.  Ms. Cook is not a hardened criminal.  Ms. Cook is the sole caregiver for her Grandfather who suffers dementia.  Stephanie Cook is sitting in jail right now because Morgan County Judge Jennifer Howell decided that Stephanie Cook did not promply report the Appeals Court Decision to the county.  What Stephanie Cook did do was to call the Circuit Clerks office multiple times to ensure that once the documentation was received she was prepared to meet with the probation officer and put a closure to criminal aspect of this case so that she may pursue all other options for the physical abuse or domestic violence she believed she received during the arrest.  Stephanie Cook showed up for her first probationary meeting with money to pay her court fees/fines in hand to begin the final journey of completing her probation.  When Stephanie Cook was called for her meeting with the probation officer Morgan County deputies was there to arrest her for non-compliance.  The probation officer did not report Stephanie Cook for probation violations.  Judge Howell took it upon herself to decide that Stephanie Cook should not have waited for the clerks office to receive and process the official order from the state appeals court.  Why?  

We can make a difference.  Stamp out incompetence in our elected officials.  


Domestic violence and emotional abuse are behaviors used by one person in a relationship to control the other. Partners may be married or not married; heterosexual, gay, or lesbian; living together, separated or dating.
Examples of abuse include:
  • name-calling or putdowns
  • keeping a partner from contacting their family or friends
  • withholding money
  • stopping a partner from getting or keeping a job
  • actual or threatened physical harm
  • sexual assault
  • stalking
  • intimidation
Violence can be criminal and includes physical assault (hitting, pushing, shoving, etc.), sexual abuse (unwanted or forced sexual activity), and stalking. Although emotional, psychological and financial abuse are not criminal behaviors, they are forms of abuse and can lead to criminal violence.

The violence takes many forms and can happen all the time or once in a while. An important step to help yourself or someone you know in preventing or stopping violence is recognizing the warning signs listed on the "Violence Wheel."

ANYONE CAN BE A VICTIM! Victims can be of any age, sex, race, culture, religion, education, employment or marital status. Although both men and women can be abused, most victims are women. Children in homes where there is domestic violence are more likely to be abused and/or neglected. Most children in these homes know about the violence. Even if a child is not physically harmed, they may have emotional and behavior problems.

If you are being abused, REMEMBER
  1. You are not alone
  2. It is not your fault


  1. I could not agree more with both Howell and Franklin being removed from office. Both of these ladies are a complete disgrace.

  2. It’s a shame! Judge Howell sided with a fellow law enforcement officer over abuse of a child who is chronically sick. The Priceville Police Deparetment covered up for their friend and fellow law enforcement friend too. Apparently the officer who led the investigation couldn’t produce the recording whenever he traumatized the mother during his corrupt investigation....hmmmmm

    1. Apparently the DVD had a “scratch” on it! This law enforcement corruption is sickening. This mother had reached out for help multiple times...even to the mayor. All attempts were ignored!

  3. A blog needs to be started about the corruption of Judge Jennifer Howell! How she is still able to hold her seat on the bench is beyond me! She has violated the rights of so many Morgan County citizens (some including children) with her incompetent and corrupt rulings!
    My question does she get away with? How did she get away with violating peoples amendment rights and civil rights? Not only does she violate them, but verbally threatens to throw them in jail if they pursue defending their legal rights!
    It was reported by a neighbor of Judge Howell that her and her husband Johnny Howell (who works in law enforcement and has many “connections” with his law enforcement buddies in Morgan County) how they used inmates and transported them to do work on their property. Can anyone say.....Slave labor? Ethics violation? Abuse of power?
    Not to mention her being in cahoots with Ana Franklin! Having one another's backs, doing special favors for one another (and when I say “special” I really mean ILLEGAL). Judge Howell is partly responsible for Kay Stevens being murdered! Her friendship and loyalty to Ana Franklin (in Ana wanting to protect the man who murdered Kay because the former Sheriff was friends with the murder) trumped doing the RIGHT thing in helping to protect an innocent woman! And God forbid you go to court against anyone who works in law-enforcement… Because no matter how much proof you have… You will lose! Because of her history of her father workimg in law-enforcement as well as her husband… She shows favoritism! She actively participates in the blue wall of silence!
    But that’s Morgan County for you… Full of corruption...from the police department to the judicial system! It’s all about scratching one another's backs, covering up for one another, and protecting their matter the cost!
    Why hasn’t the FBI investigated Judge Howell? I guarantee you if the FBI made a public announcement for people to come forward with complaints and evidence...there would be a laundry list of legitimate complaints and evidence against her!
