Franklin has been engrossed in controversy since taking office in January 2011. She has been blasted all over media for her infamous drug bust, firing of employees, multiple lawsuits, and investing in the Title Marts with Greg Steenson, and her ex-lover Steven Ziaja.
Once Sheriff Franklin is indicted for her crimes she has committed, our beautiful county can begin the healing process. We are very disappointed in the fact that our first female sheriff has disgraced not her reputation about our communities and our county. Franklin holds out hope that because she is a woman law enforcement will be soft on her. You do the crime you should do the time man or woman. Ask any number of inmates and ex-inmates that have been in the MCSO jail if the jail was soft on them. You will find that Sheriff Franklin has only been soft on drug dealers, manufacturers, distributors, and murders. Many of which have spent more time outside of the jail as they have inside the jail. Some of those inmates worked on both Sheriff Ana Franklin and Judge Howell's house. Want to know why Sheriff Ana Franklin is so angry with ex-warden Leon Bradley? Bradley knew about the inmates that were being sent out on work release, some of which were very bad people.
