New York Times Article

Folks, I just read the article in its entirety.  As I have said all along there is proof that Sheriff Franklin had Keylogger software installed on my computers.  We have worked very hard to ensure that we told the truth about our lying and conniving sheriff.  Justice will prevail in the end because we told the truth.

The Times article states that the sheriff's denial of the Keylogger software installation is undercut by four people who told the Times separately that they had knowledge that the sheriff's office taught Mr. Lockhart how to install spyware.

The Times went on to say that among those that knew about the software was Ricky Brewer.  Ricky Brewer told the FBI that his replacement acknowledged giving the grandson the software.

Thank you, Ricky Brewer for your honesty and integrity.

  1. I'm not from Morgan County, I'm just here after reading about you in the Times, and came here just to say one thing: Thank you. Even though I live halfway across the country in the midwest, I know that democracy and good government lives and dies through the dogged determination of people like you, speaking truth to power. Thank you.

  2. It is nice to see someone that isn't from here has no opinion on anyone in the article before hand and was able to figure out that Sheriff Franklin is in criminal activity and profiting off of the office she is supposed to protect and serve. Maybe the next sheriff will bring a good name back to Morgan County Sheriff's Office. Something the deputies can be proud of.

  3. I learned so much from this article about local sheriffs. Never knew how much unchecked power they actually had and how easy it is for them to skim all kinds of cash off of people. I praise you for your work. Once your finished you should teach others how to hold their elected sheriffs accountable.

  4. Just read the article. Two points.
    First, one of the worst kinds of criminals in a democracy are those that perpetuate a kleptocracy. Their actions degrade the foundations of a civilized society and infect our democratic system with corruption and injustice that is very hard to reverse.
    Second, because the sheriff is allegedly participating in theft of funds, she is directly assaulting the rights of everyone in the county. Here dereliction of duty and corrupt practices should be severely punished, otherwise there is no real law and order in her jurisdiction.
    LOCK HER UP!

  5. Here is another point...Glenda has endured so much crap in the last 7+ years from Franklin. It was for you, me, the county, deputies, and all Glenda wanted was peace of mind. She spent her time, money and energy to a cause that wasn't beneficial to her. Franklin never and I mean never took her serious. Franklin laughed at her, threatened her, rounded up her employees to get a search warrant based on false information and broke into her business to steal computers amongst other electronics that by the time it was returned to her by a federal judges ruling they destroyed the equipment. During that raid, they take her sons death certificate who passed recently as a slap in the face. Do not cry when Karma has its way with you!

  6. I would like to think corruption, ignorance, and gleeful disregard for observable fact is hitting a zenith in 2017. However, what I'd like to believe is irrelevant. Keep blowing the whistle on this pathetic sheriff and anyone who aids/abets her. A free press is integral to a functional democracy.

  8. I am a government lawyer in another state (not a county sheriff), and am here after reading your New York Times article. Your story is amazing and I want to thank you for your bravery and persistence. What is disturbing to me is how much these local sheriffs run amuck and get away with it because most of their victims don't have the means, time, or ability to fight back.

    Your civil lawsuit against the county is very promising. The violations of the 1st and 4th amendments are flagrant, and you are not only likely to win damages under Section 1983 (the federal civil rights statute under which you have sued) but also an award of your attorneys' fees. In other words, the court would likely force the county defendants to pay money to compensate your lawyers for their time on the case.

    I have no idea how the county expects to criminally prosecute anyone based on evidence collected in such an illegal manner. As a blogger you have certain 1st Amendment rights and are probably in the safest position of anyone with respect to potential criminal charges by these yokels. But I also suspect that anyone else who provided information to you is safe, under the "fruit of the poisonous tree" doctrine of 4th amendment law. In general, the police can't prosecute people when the evidence on which the charges are premised was collected by the police illegally.

    By the time you are done with this litigation, you may well have established some significant legal precedents establishing the boundaries between citizen bloggers and county sheriffs, not just in Alabama but around the country.

    1. Thank you Sir for your post. And no, this is not Glenda. Just a reader that is very happy that she had the guts to go as far as she has with these crooks, trying to get justice for employees, ex-employees, etc, etc. I am one who can not wait to see the handcuffs on Ana and her gang.

  9. Thank you Ms. Lockhart for doing the things around here we all know need to be done. The law enforcement corruption in this state is exceptionally pervasive and needs to be dealt with. Stay strong!

  10. The sheriff and her attorney claim that Ms. Lockhart is under a criminal investigation yet the sheriff doesn't appear to know the name of the agency conducting the investigation. At the same time, the sheriff's attorney claims he is not at liberty to say who is investigating Ms. Lockhart. I don't know about Alabama but when I conduct an investigation I question the suspect. Based on the content of the article it sounds as if the sheriff is the one under investigation.
