Another Shoe Drops......each one closer to Ana
ALEA agent with ties to Morgan sheriff pleads guilty, agrees to cooperates
By Eric Fleischauer Metro Editor
At some point a sinner will be punished; many decisions or events that are important in one's life take time in coming. ... : Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small; : Though with patience he stands waiting, with exactness grinds he all.
Well, folks, at last the wheels of justice have come around to former ALEA agent Stephen Ziaja (with close ties to Ana Franklin)
Indicted on 13 felonies, a former ALEA agent with close ties to Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin (emphasis added) pleaded guilty to misdemeanors and was sentenced Monday to 60 days in jail after agreeing to cooperate in ongoing criminal investigations.
As we who read the Blog know, Steenson dropped dimes on Ziaja:
I know he looked those up for Priceville Partners,” Steenson said. “The benefit to (Priceville Partners) is we’re able to track them down to find our repos. … He’d start with the person who did owe the money and then work your way around (to known associates). ... Like this (Priceville Partners customer), we couldn’t find him. Steven (Ziaja) runs him down and he’s in the Lawrence County Jail. With that, we knew where to start.”
And now it's Steven's turn. One hopes has lots of change in his pockets, especially dimes.
In his plea agreement, Ziaja "agrees to cooperate with the state as part of any ongoing criminal investigation into this and related matters, including making (himself) available for any questioning and providing any necessary documentation or testimony before any grand jury."
Steven, 60 days in the Cullman County lockup is a piece of cake especially: because “incarceration here would afford Mr. Ziaja the ability to maintain his full-time employment. Oh, well. His manager wrote in an evaluation submitted to the court that Ziaja “would be a great salesman, or whatever he puts his mind to. … I promise that the sky is the limit for this man.” He had a good teacher, Greg Steenson.
