I cannot begin to express what an absolute LIAR Sheriff Ana Franklin is. Franklin claimed several times through her Attorney Billable Barney Lovelace to a Federal Judge that Ana paid back the inmate food funds she illegally took in June 2015. Specifically the $150,000.00 she used to invest in the Title Marts. This has been the story since December 2016. Did Barney know when he submitted documents to the Federal Judge that it was a lie; that the money did not go back into the sheriff's office official account? Did Barney know that the funds were deposited in the Traditions Bank in Cullman, Alabama in Sheriff Ana Franklin's personal account that she named inmate funds? Was Barney just mincing words for the appearance so that we the citizens of Morgan County would be satisfied that the money had been paid back to the real inmate food account that belongs to the sheriff's office?
Franklin was found guilty of Contempt of Court. What does that make her now that we know that she lied through her attorney to a Federal Judge? Forgive us for being suspicious of Lovelace but he does have a history. Lovelace was part of a conspiracy to gain access to the whistleblower's office and home when Ana planned the break-in at the Lockhart business to collect documents and place Keylogger software on the computers. Before getting a legal search warrant. Now Ana has tried to use those records in an investigation against Warden Bradley and Lockhart to prosecute them in a court of law. Really, Ana, you are trying to use documents you took illegally to prosecute Lockhart. It is important to know that Ana's attorneys had to admit there is not an investigation of Lockhart. Now Franklin wants to try to use documents from Lockhart's office she collected illegally to prosecute Bradley.
Sheriff Ana Franklin you are a liar and liar is a very strong word. You are a pathological liar. You do not deserve to be the sheriff of Morgan County. Your corruption goes to the bone. You have ice water running through your veins. Can you folks imagine what would happen to anyone of us had we lied to a federal judge and got caught?
Sheriff Ana Franklin disgraces the badge that she occasionally wears for the media.
