Bones Wilson. We believe that Bones is a very dangerous man. He is known for doing Ana's bidding without challenge. During the 2014 campaign, he was seen in a white commercial van throwing out two letter plastic drink bottles in the ditches of Morgan County. What was in those bottles, Bones? Bones is too lazy to do real work. Many families on New Center Road recall an illegal Halfway House for women. The inmates we spoke to told us that METH was being made in the halfway house and the house was sponsored by Sheriff Ana Franklin. Franklin claimed an enormous number of METH bust in 2013 and 2014 but didn't acknowledge that she sponsored a halfway house where inmates alleged they were making METH. Bones invested thousands of dollars in the Title Mart and received a hefty compensation for his investment with a 30-day return. In addition, Bones Wilson received over $100,000.00 dollars in overtime he did not work.
Blake Robinson. Another one of the golden ones. Assisted Ana in the Keylogger software installation. Makes false arrests. Has no fear of the FBI and challenged them to a shootout on the Sheriff's Office front steps. Blake Robinson is a thug with a weapon. Blake also made thousands and thousands of dollars working overtime at the sheriff's office while he was detailing vehicles at the Title Mart in Hartselle. He used the Jeffreys property, facility, and detail equipment bought by Steven Ziaja to clean vehicles so that he and Ziaja could split the money.
Justin Powell. Corrections Officer turned Information Technology Specialist under Mama Ana's guidance and instruction. Franklin taught Powell how to monitor his co-workers, and to do things that most honorable Information Technology Specialist would never do. Justin Powell handed over the Keylogger software to his informant with instructions on how to use it which allowed the Sheriff and her goons to steal documents, emails, and to video the offices prior to lying to an innocent judge to get a legal search warrant. The Keylogger software was placed on two computers. What's interesting about Powell is that he did all of his nefarious work without overtime. How did Sheriff Franklin manipulate Powell into conducting illegal acts on her behalf? Granted Powell went from a corrections officer with benefits to an Information Technology Specialist without competition for the job. Powell is definitely moving on up. The question is will he land in jail or has he self-reported to outside agencies?
Sheriff Ana Franklin Queen Bee aka Mama Ana. The sheriff of Morgan County. An impressive position for a person who is shallow, a thief, who has committed abuses of power, a dysfunctional defunct leader who is responsible for serving and protecting the citizens of our county. A sheriff who has lied at every turn. Franklin lied to the press, the citizens, the Decatur Daily, her employees, she cheated her employees out of pay, she lied to her employees and has no respect in this county. Ana claims that the whistleblower has multiple criminal arrests. Ana denies any activity in the Keylogger. Ana denies the property in Saraland exists. Ana fires employees because she doesn't trust them to keep or know about her dirty little secrets. The 55-year-old Franklin living a life of crime while hiding behind her position. Franklin was instrumental in setting up her gang of goons to install Keylogger software on the whistleblowers' computer, having the office broken into, stealing information, claiming that the whistleblowers had committed over 170 felony counts of crime, claiming that Warden Bradley sent the whistleblower sheriff's office confidential information via email. Everything to date that Franklin and her attorney Billable Barney have said are lies. Franklin is the kind of dysfunctional sheriff that you read about but you would never expect in your own backdoor. The backdoor being Morgan County. Corruption is alive and well in Sheriff Ana Franklin's world.
Greg Steenson. What can we say? Steenson is a criminal with a long history of manipulating others, stealing their money, stealing money from banks, money from individuals, and from his own family. The kind of guy that only a mother could love that is except that this time around with the Title Mart debacle he involved his family, cousin Ana, Steven Ziaja, Bones Wilson, Blake Robinson, and a host of others. All with the plan of screwing Mr. Jeffreys. Plans to circle their wagons and blame Mr. Jeffreys for everything. How's that working out for ya Greg? Did you mention what came out of the creek? Did you tell Ana? She sure made multiple calls on the day of the creek dive trying to find out what was going on at the creek.
Larry Berzett. Ana promised him the moon. How's that working out for ya Larry? Will you be caught up in the criminal conduct revolving around the Sheriff? We know you partake of posse funds. Did Ana buy you the new truck she promised you? Is it in your name personally? Did you pay cash for it? Larry a speeding fool but when he is stopped by law enforcement he wants the law enforcement officers fired for doing their job. Larry Berzett the Jail Administrator with no respect in Morgan County. Larry the big man on campus. Tell us, Larry, where you get the food to feed the inmates these days?
Ron Livingston. A man worth mentioning. Where are all of the lost weapons Livingston was responsible for? Ron Livingston whom Sheriff Ana Franklin now wants to get rid of. What's a sheriff to do? Franklin claims that Livingston is old and she can't place him in positions to support the troops. Too old to do his job. Franklin also fumes that right now she cannot do anything to get rid of Livingston or Bili. Livingston and Berzett do not get along. Who does Ana side with? Berzett of course. Franklin wants to know what the hell Bili is doing with the deputies. She has no faith in any of the command staff to include suck up Corley.
Steven Ziaja. Sheriff Ana Franklin's ex-boyfriend. Lover for years. That is until she sucked him dry. Ziaja supported Franklin then and now. Ziaja was at an event a couple of weeks ago singing Ana's praises. He loves him some Ana. Ana, on the other hand, would just as soon as run over Ziaja with a bush hog. Oh! the disappointment when a relationship ends. Ana blames Ziaja for the Title Mart debacle. She blames him because he gave her all his money. She blames him for involving her family to include Alyssa in the Title Mart. She blames him for her investment and those of her employees such as Blake and Bones. She blames him for stepfamily involvement, the only person Franklin hasn't blamed is herself. Franklin stole money from the inmate food funds to invest but don't be fooled Ana began her thieving ways of partaking of the inmate food funds in 2013. Ana has told so many lies that she can't remember the truth. The only truths Ana knows are the ones she makes up in her head. Ana also claims that even if Keylogger software was installed on the whistleblowers' computers she has immunity. Franklin thought she had immunity for causing a wreck in South Alabama that severely injured two elderly people. She was not immune. We could go on and on with Ana's accolades but we believe most folks already know about Ana's adventures. Thank You, Morgan County.
