The Morgan County DA's office arrested and charged Greg Steenson months ago on multiple criminal charges for his part in the Title Mart activities. Attorney Barney Lovelace, attorney for Sheriff Ana Franklin, a public official, appears to be soliciting investors, family, friends, and employees of the sheriff's office to join a class action lawsuit against Harold Jeffreys. Barney claims Mr. Jeffreys shared information with the whistleblower about those who invested, worked, friends, and family of the sheriff that invested in the Title Marts. The Title Mart was involved in criminal activity which caused the Performance Auto Sales Aka Title Mart to file for bankruptcy protection.
How ridiculous and how like Barney. Barney takes a business that Greg Steenson ran on a daily basis and conducted criminal activity behind the "real owner's" back and tries to encourage people to file suit against the honest owners of the business. The people who knew nothing about what was going on behind their backs.
In the scheme of things, Barney's actions are not really that bizarre. As we discussed in previous blogs about an incident involving a lady who had Title Mart assist her in selling her deceased husbands vehicles. Greg Steenson cheated the lady out of more than $38,000.00 dollars. Barney being the gracious, honest, and reliable attorney that he is was successful in assisting the lady in getting her money back by contacting the good sheriff for assistance. Did we mention that the lady was ready to press charges against Greg Steenson for theft of her money? The good sheriff delivered thousands of dollars in cash to Barney along with two checks which Barney gave to the lady compliments of sheriff Ana Franklin. The money subsequently saved Steenson from being arrested at least for a while. Now, the question is why would Sheriff Ana Franklin and Barney Lovelace work so hard to keep Greg Steenson from being arrested? At that time Franklin had a vested interest in the Title Mart and Greg Steenson.
Did we mention that Barney sat in on the meeting in the sheriff’s office late one night where Sheriff Ana Franklin, Bones Wilson, Blake Robinson, and Justin Powell conspired to break into the whistleblower's office and collect information so that the sheriff could obtain a warrant to search the whistleblower's office? Did we mention that Franklin also had Keylogger software installed on the whistleblower's computer during the theft of documents that incriminated the sheriff and some of those who invested in the Title Marts? Better known as Bones Wilson and Blake Robinson. Did we mention that the sheriff bragged that even if she had the Keylogger software installed on the whistleblower's computers that she has immunity from prosecution? Enough about the whistleblowers and how Sheriff Franklin and Barney tried to stop the whistleblowers for reporting the corruption within the MCSO and the sheriff's connection to the Title Mart and Greg Steenson.
Ana and Barney have a desperate need to drum up a class action lawsuit against Harold Jeffreys. Ana is pissed because the names and relationships of those investors, users, and losers are friends, family, or employees of the sheriff. If Franklin cared about those people she shouldn't have involved them in her Title Mart schemes in the first place.
News Flash Barney and Ana. Harold Jeffreys has lived an exemplary life with many great accolades through hard work and due diligence. Harold and his family did not stand to gain 27% interest on their investment from the Title Mart businesses nor did the receive a 45% interest on their return as we believe sheriff Franklin and others did. Did we mention those investments paid out every 30 days? Did we mention that Harold Jeffreys and his family lost their money? Did we mention that Harold Jeffreys and his family did not have a clue about the outside investors that Ana Franklin and Steven Ziaja brought into the business; that those investors were paid out by Greg Steenson and not Mr. Jeffreys.
In most cases when you hear the name Ana Franklin it is synonymous with Barney Lovelace. Of course, Barney wants to file a class action lawsuit against Jeffreys, he won't say it is on behalf of the sheriff but this is the second attempt at a class action lawsuit. The first one Ana initiated and encouraged employees and others to join the suit. The sheriff has a vested interest in getting a class action lawsuit going. Ana and Barney have been on a mission to stop the whistleblowers since we established the blog. Ana and Barney need to discredit Mr. Jeffreys and bring him down to protect others within Ana's circle. They seem to forget that the Title Mart was conducting criminal business outside of the scope that Mr. Jeffreys or his family was aware of. Once the Jeffreys became aware of the criminal activity that took swift and prompt action to stop the activity.
We will keep chugging along while Barney and his client Sheriff Ana Franklin pull another trick out of their hats.
We hope that if Mr. Jeffreys has critical information Ana and Barney are so desperate to squash that he would share it with outside law enforcement sources. If he hasn't already. Surely Barney's class action lawsuit isn't because of the whistleblower's ability to dig through dumpsters and come up with credible information that Greg Steenson and others left behind. Surely, Barney and Ana do not really believe that Mr. Jeffreys shared information with the whistleblowers. If that is the case they probably believe that Mr. Jeffreys provided us with the counter checks that the sheriff wrote on the MCSO inmate food account, or that Mr. Jeffreys provided us with the $10,000.00 counter check that Ana used for upgrades on her house using a sheetrock finisher who was spending his time in jail for back child support.
As for the whistleblowers, we sent all our credible interesting information to outside sources. Guess we forgot to cc Barney on what we have.
Now Ana and Barney are scratching their heads because they know there is at least one person and maybe more sharing information with the whistleblowers. Class Action Lawsuits should be brought against the criminals and wrongdoers not the innocent.
