Ana



Good evening, yesterday was a very difficult day for me and my family, my many close friends, and for those that have worked closely with me throughout the years as I served as your sheriff.
Yesterday I plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge for failing to file my 2015 income tax return timely as required. Most people know and understand that a failure to file a tax return by the due date is an offense which requires fines, penalties, and interest. But this offense also carries the potential to be charged criminally for a misdemeanor.
The confusion surrounding the Alabama inmate food law continues to be an issue for me and the other sheriffs that are affected by this, as well as those state officials that are struggling to resolve these legal matters. My failure to file the tax return on time stems from this confusion, but as an elected official and public servant, my obligation to obey all laws and try to adhere as closely as possible to the rule and spirit of the law is greater, and a higher standard is expected of me. My accountability is also greater because I am the sheriff and I am sworn to uphold the law. Because of my oath to uphold the laws, the Constitution of the United States and the State of Alabama, I believe it is the right thing to do to accept responsibility for this offense.
I am particularly thankful to Senator Arthur Orr for his willingness to take on this very controversial and difficult topic. I am also thankful to you, the citizens of Morgan County for voting to pass the amendment which will now eliminate this problem for future sheriffs in Morgan County.
Because of ongoing pending civil litigation, I cannot speak to every detail or to dispel all of the rumors and false allegations that continue to be spread, but as to this issue, I cooperated fully with the investigation and admitted to authorities at the onset that I had not initially filed my taxes on time as required. All taxes, penalties, fines, fees or interest due has been paid and my tax return was filed before I was aware of this investigation by the IRS.
I am sincerely sorry for the pain and embarrassment that this has caused for the Office of Sheriff and my community. I am especially sad and embarrassed for the way this reflects upon my family and loved ones that have supported me. I apologize for the mistake that I have made and for my shortcomings.
As I near the end of my term, I am ever thankful and grateful for the opportunity that you gave me to serve you. I have attempted to do my best as your sheriff and to diligently work to make our county a safer place. I am so proud of the staff at the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office, for the dedication they have to the people of this county, and for the difference they have made. My prayers will continue to be for this office, this county that I love, and for Sheriff Puckett as he steps into this very important role.
Thank you all for the prayers, your friendship and for the kindness that you have bestowed upon me throughout the years. May God Bless you all and this great nation.

  1. Only God knows if she truly means it.

    I'm not trying to be a stickler, but it would have been more authentic without the following bs:

    "The confusion surrounding the Alabama inmate food law continues to be an issue for me and the other sheriffs that are affected by this, as well as those state officials that are struggling to resolve these legal matters. My failure to file the tax return on time stems from this confusion..."

    1. BS. Why would it be confusing Ana???? County Attorney Bill Shinn told you NO, federal judge says you cannot take food bill funds. Then you took it any way because you are greedy and think you are above the law. Biggest liar that every walked this earth.

    2. Hell, I'm confused now. Ana, honest question. What part are YOU confused about? Taking inmate food funds or paying taxes? Seems like two different problems.

      Now, it kinda looks like you were NOT confused about inmate food funds because:
      1.) You took inmate food funds when you were advised not to by Shinn.
      2.) Your campaign promise not to touch inmate food funds.

      Were you confused about paying taxes? Because you didn't seem confused when the whistleblower posted those checks (after April 15, 2016)...in fact, that's when things became real clear.

      Your savings and retirement money turned out to be taxpayer money.

      Could it be you were not confused at all. Your excuses are not logical.

  3. Ana knows what she has done and what she is doing. What a lier, always has been.

  4. My goodness. I read Ana’s FB post three times. I couldn’t believe what I was reading. What started off as an apology soon became excuse after excuse. Has she forgotten the truth has already been told by Decatur Daily, whistleblower, 31, 19, 48, the IRS, and a Federal Judge. I truly feel sorry for Ana. I don’t believe she knows the difference between right and wrong. Ana has some dear friends that have stood by her through thick and thin and a loving family surely someone can sit her down and explain the difference between right and wrong.

  5. If I am confused about what the speed limit is I slow down. If she was still confused about the food money then don't take any.

  8. Your honor I am so sorry. And I pray to hell you haven't found about all the other accounts I have stolen from.

  9. You haven't experienced a difficult day for the last 8 years sheriff. Has your power been shut off several times. Have you had to do shit work to survive. You have been partying hard on taxpayers funds for 8 years and time is up. Doesn't matter how many apologies you make. You were paying folks overtime never worked. Good luck once that County credit card is out of your hand and all the others you took care of you may experience a bit of what you did to a bunch of honest folks

    1. I don't think that was an apology. That was just a conniving attempt to get sympathy. Biggest liar that ever walked. Can't wait for one more week. I hope they are watching every move she makes within the week. She is desperate and will be needing money, lots of money.

    1. What is dirty under some folks door is what Ana swept under. We will wait for Judgement day. But as flamboyant as Ana is about hurting people, God won't soon forget and it's hard for some of us to also. It will be a tough road for her. She should be thankful of the mercy she is given with misdemeanors and in light of it be truly sorry. Her actions and words have not exhibited that.

  12. She campaigned against corn dog sheriff condemning him for taking food surplus funds yet just before she took office she asked the city attorney if she could. Red flag Morgan County and yet y’all voted her in a second time. You’ll notice she leaves out in her poor poor pitiful me statement she’s not apologizing for lying to the public about the one hundred fifty grand coming from her retirement when it actually came from the food surplus. She’s not apologizing for being found in contempt of a federal court order nor is she apologizing for using her position as sheriff to declare war on Lockhart and warden bradley by having one of her boys lie on a search warrant affidavit. She’s not going to jail on any felonies and when she doesn’t she will be back with those yellow signs saying vote for Ana. She is that delusional.

  13. Will Ana take something else that doesn’t belong to her like pay she hasn’t earned? Will this cause her to continue to commit crimes therefore violating her bond? Be careful Ana learn from your cousin and business partner Greg Steenson’s example.

  14. Whistleblowers and all who assisted were right all along and now, finally things are starting to happen! All a bit confusing and way past due but it seems to have started. When will the rest of Ana’s gang be arrested or held accountable?

    1. Right except for the fact that something big was going to happen. She’s not going to prison. She’s plead to a misdemeanor Anas laughing justice took a nosedive.

    2. She may not be able to skate off into the sunset to Sarahland. That property was purchased with Morgan County tax payers funds.

  15. I laught each time I read that she was encouraged by her ex to invest. Ana and Greg are cousins. Greg was giving her money from the car lot in 2014. She invested in 2016. Ocean front property for sale in Arizona. Call BR549

  16. Why didn’t Ana apologize, take responsibility, admit the crime, and ask for forgiveness? Her FB post was weak and unapologetic with no admittance. Only excuses. How like Ana. She should go to jail for her on good. That isn’t going to happen. Ana will proclaim once sentenced that she won.

  17. I believe this is the beginning of the end. She did not want anyone to know about her grand estate in Sarahland that Morgan county tax payers paid for. Must be nice

  18. The little 160k she lied about is only drop in bucket. There is much more money stole

  19. Thank you Glenda, Rick and whoever else that exposed this FRAUD for what she is. Its downright embarrassing how she's been able to get away with all the stealing of not only the inmate food funds but from all the other funds as well.

    Some of the citizens of Morgan County are so dang ignorant that they would still be donating there hard earned cash to this woman thinking it was going to a good cause. This story has made the headlines all across the Country, people laughing at the good folks of Alabama.. Thinking how can they be so stupid to let these Sheriff's get away with such a racket. The only State in the whole dam Country that allows such a thing lol.
    But not anymore!!!
    Thanks to Glenda and the rest of the Whistleblowers who put a stop to it. The whistleblowers were right all along you little dummies!!

    What happened to taking on the FBI on the steps of the County courthouse? LMAO
