Judge finds Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin, 2 investigators broke the law, misled the court
POSTED 4:49 PM, APRIL 27, 2018, BY BRIAN LAWSONUPDATED AT 04:50PM, APRIL 27, 2018



MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. —  A Morgan County judge issued an order Friday that found Sheriff Ana Franklin and two investigators broke the law during an investigation involving former jail warden Leon Bradley and local blogger Glenda Lockhart.
The case that spurred the ruling involved a misdemeanor charge of tampering with government documents against Bradley. Morgan County Sheriff’s Office investigators alleged Bradley had taken law enforcement records from the sheriff’s office, gave them to Lockhart and had law enforcement records at his home.
The case is tied to the fact that the sheriff’s office didn’t like the Morgan County Whistleblower blog, according to testimony during a hearing in the case last Friday and Tuesday morning. The investigation was aimed at finding who was feeding the blog law enforcement information.
Sheriff Ana Franklin declined to comment Friday afternoon. On Sunday, she addressed the case on her Facebook page and said, “This is personally painful and difficult to watch my career and reputation be defamed and torn apart. But, I have faith in our system that the truth will be disclosed.”

Some of you have seen the media reports of the recent ruling Re : the Leon Bradley case. I’m sure there will be and are nasty awful comments about this everywhere. I have been told that posting this will give more opportunities for folks to continue with that. That’s just part of what comes with this job. I’ve had to be silent through this whole mess due to court proceedings and attorneys limiting what can be released for various reasons. I have followed the rules throughout the years of attacks and misinformation, false reports, and slander. I followed the rules when working this case as well.
This is personally painful and difficult to watch my career and reputation be defamed and torn apart. But, I have faith in our system that the truth will be disclosed. Neither The Decatur Daily or any other media outlet is the appropriate forum to do this. We will respectfully and methodically continue to work through all avenues to show the answers in the correct manner.
Y’all know me. You know the work I have done and the love I have for this county and my office. While I am limited in what I can say - I can say that this isn’t the story that is being sold to folks. Neither I nor my investigators did anything criminal or unethical, and we look forward to the opportunity when we will be able to show that.
Thank you again for your kind words your prayers and your encouragement. Please continue to pray for all of us and our family. It’s appreciated more than you know.

She said her attorney may have a statement next week “as this proceeds.”
The three-page order contains a number of troubling findings for the sheriff’s office.
Morgan County Circuit Judge Glenn Thompson says the sheriff and an investigator misled the court to get a search warrant and that they encouraged the illegal entry to blogger Lockhart’s Morgan County business, by a confidential informant. The ruling also says that the sheriff’s office illegally provided the informant with computer monitoring software that he installed on Lockhart’s home and business computers.
The judge seems to have identified a handful of potential crimes he says the sheriff’s office was involved in. He also said they tried to cover up, “their deception and criminal actions under color of law.”
It’s unclear what happens next. Representatives from the FBI and the Alabama Attorney General’s office attended the hearing that led to today’s findings.

    Wait...did she and her deputies not have every opportunity to do just that in Judge Thompson's court room? Or, for some more nefarious reason, did the media and court system conspire together to suppress the truth?

  2. May I ask, when will be the proper time, and where will be the proper place to explain what "really" happened.

  3. What about Saraland? What about her last boyfriend broke and in jail without his parents inheritance? What about her cousin Steenson who was also her business partner and daughters boss? What about the food funds pistol permits and commissary funds? What about the perks to non employees? What about Ana and others asking for protection from others from the authorities? What about all the careers ruined? What about the innocent set up and imprisoned? What about the special provledges drugs and alcohol? The rodeo and high dollar trips across the country? Rodeo Queens costing the county more than a Deputy in a year? Stolen pay for time not worked by her and her chosen? Missing Sheriffs Office Assets? Seized property never returned and unaccounted for? Everyone is lying about all of that and more also right? The judges and investigators from multiple agencies are also lying right? The Whistleblowers have been lying all along? The $150,000 check was from your retirement right? You took the required drug tests after crashes because you could pass? Your title of Sheriff got you far as ruined all respect for the office! Everyone who knows the truth including the media who along with everyone else saw the lies in court first hand want you gone. They may want you to wait to sell more stories, while every employee wants the losers in Ana’s gang all gone. Almost all of the command staff. I bet the other Sheriffs are tired of the exposure and embarrassment and ready for all this to be over also. Lies and deceit and so many had such high hopes destroyed by the worst criminal Sheriff this county has ever seen. Ana complains about the Decatur Daily, what is different about what the other state and national publications are saying. Only question now is, why is she and her gang still there? Read the blog and all the news stories found by google search. Everyone and everything is consistent except Ana and her cult like followers. They are mostly married men. What are they all thinking with? If the jail is any insight into that it’s obvious because everyone is doing everyone and no one is doing anything about it. Want to find a lover become a jailer, male female straight or not it is all available as a Morgan County Jailer under Ana Franklin. Jailers inmates and a Sheriff all on the same level. Best supervision ever! Ride’em cowboy �� Ain’t that right Momma Ana? SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING ALREADY!!!!!!

  5. Oh really now, Ana. Do you really need to go into a weep for the poor sheriff mode. A simple "Mea Culpa" would have sufficed. And we the people need to hear it.

  6. "This is personally painful and difficult to watch my career and reputation be defamed and torn apart. But, I have faith in our system that the truth will be disclosed"
    1.) What about the people you tried to destroy with your lies, corruption, and fraud? What about their reputation, careers, lives that you've defamed and torn apart? YOU, Robinson, Wilson, and Powell tried to do that to many. Karma. Karma.Karma.
    2.) Regarding that last sentence...Ana Franklin were you not at the court hearing? Did you not hear or read Judge Thompson's ruling? You're right, our system did find the truth by the evidence and testimony disclosed. What part of that did you not understand? Denial.Denial.Denial.

    How did we end up with a sheriff who breaks laws but doesn't seem to care or understand even when a prominent, upstanding, great Judge tells her so? Didn't a Federal Judge slap her with contempt and she felt as though she won? What is wrong with her?

    2. Wait...are we talking about Ana? Or Barney? Or Steenson? Or...

    4. Ana is poster child for this but it explains why her and Barney were so tight. Barney was her lawyer with Benifits y’all give him a break. Old or young did not matter. Ana played the field and it worked for many. When an inmate was remolding her kitchen it wasn’t against the law for their sheet rocking cause she is the Sheriff and immunity covers her. Ana had a heck of a payment plan. She could keep the money that way. May get her far in jail, she may get seconds at meal time.

  8. Sounds like Ana has come down with a case of Roy Moore syndrome. Take your loss in court and move on.

    3. Oh I know for a fact that Anna or Alyssa has not one bit of shame in the bedroom. Ain't nothing that want or have already tried or done. Believe me when I say either will do ANYTHING in the bedroom.

  10. Shes not resigning. As long as she is there, those discretionary and food accounts are paying the way for their legal fees. Almost everyone that works at the department is furious that shes still there.

    1. Take the money away. Hold it for the next Sheriff. Stop funding it all together! Let the state take over until she is out.
