Fresh off the press

Judge rejects former Morgan sheriff's immunity bid

  • In determining whether Franklin enjoyed immunity from liability for the termination, Haikala utilized a balancing test. Sherman alleged Franklin forced him out, and then blackballed him with other law enforcement offices, in violation of his First Amendment right to free speech.
    The task for Haikala, then, was to balance the importance of Sherman’s speech regarding alleged corruption against Franklin’s interest in promoting efficiency in the Sheriff’s Office.
    “There is no doubt that reports of corruption within a law enforcement department may be disruptive, but Morgan County’s interest in preventing speech about corruption is low,” Haikala wrote. “… Sheriff Franklin’s alleged decision to find a way to terminate him because she believed he contributed to the blog concerning public corruption in the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department would violate Mr. Sherman’s constitutional right to free speech.”

  1. Nothing seems to be going your way any more does it Ana? Your words over and over "No one can touch me, no one can arrest me, I am the Sheriff of Morgan County, everyone loves me, I know people in high places to protect me" is history. Sure am glad we don't have to hear it any more.

    1. She thought she was untouchable, only to find out she is as dumb as a rock. She fell for a Ponzi scheme, stole money, bullied Glenda, and thought she was God. She is nothing more than a stupid hick that fell of horses so many times she has brain damage. That is obvious to everyone now. Doctors can't help her brain, or what's left of it. Good riddance, rodeo queen!

  2. Thank you for what you do. I feel nothing but sympathy for you because of what Ana Franklin did to you. I hope your life has changed for the better since that evil woman left office, and I hope to see her mugshot soon. Too many elected officials are nothing but self serving lawbreakers and don't deserve the office their friends bought for them. I hope, when you win this lawsuit, that she moves out of this state once she is released from prison. If she doesn't get prison time for everything she has done then I will have absolutely no belief in the justice system. I don't have much belief in it now. That woman is so evil it turned her hair red. Thanks, to people like you, for calling out corrupt elected officials. If Ron Puckett has any morals he will meet with you personally and let you know he appreciates what you do, if he hasn't already. If he doesn't at least speak to you to help give you peace in the future then he doesn't deserve to be where he is.

    Keep on trucking, Glenda!

    2. Ana took a plea agreement. She is not going to spend one night in jail. Everything else is civil. She has nothing to get.

    3. She took a plea agreement in Morgan County. She still has the IRS to deal with for not filing taxes. You're right, the IRS never locks people up.

  3. I love it. Not immune now. Never should have been immune. You are a criminal period.

  4. How about lying to Federal agencies on employees she terminated who were trying to seek employment. Lying about failed tests...attorney says cant file lawsuit against Feds. BS

    1. Thank you for knowing how to comprehend what you read. Plus, unlawful firing of employees which violated their constitutional rights. Some people need to go to the Decatur Daily's website and search Ana Franklin in the search box and read all the articles because they don't know what they are talking about, or they are related to Ana and are trying to defend her.

    1. Not for long. Her big red butt is going to be spending a lot of time in the court system, and hopefully in prison where she deserves to be.

  6. Now that she is out of office she no longer holds that fear that comes with the office of I might need her or him some day over those folks who are making the decisions. Not they can make those decisions freely.

  7. Sherman was one of the worst Deputies ever to come to Morgan County. He was bounced around to every section of the Sheriffs office. No one wanted to work with him. They did not trust his ability as a deputy sheriff. There was many times he should of been fired for different stuff he did. His law enforcement career is over.

    1. Which one of those who are mad they got caught wrote this?

    2. Same old song and dance. I mean whoever wrote it clearly does not like Rick. For over a year I've seen this same statement. Its probably one of the hypocrites that can't get a job in law enforcement now themselves. They always think they have room to talk.

  8. Sounds like one of the guys or gals who is now out of a job is attacking Sherman. Are they a little sore that he helped expose the truth? These guys and gals who are or soon to be no longer employed don't seem to realize that he is on the same side of the majority of the Sheriffs Office employees who will honorably retire from the Sheriff's Office. Crime and corruption is over in the Sheriff's Office. It is being cleaned up. From those outside and inside the Sheriff's Office. Go ahead and attack those who made a difference, it's just like the absurd attack and lawsuit against Leon Bradley. This blog gives you a voice to try to attack. It really does show how sad and desperate you guys who are now gone are. Good luck in your uncertain futures. Maybe you all will escape significant time in jail and can find a way to become productive citizens in society. Peace is coming even for the peacekeepers who are free and stood up against the criminals who have been ousted. It took an army to do it but it isn't over yet. Goodbye Ana and her cronies. As the Sheriff says ” It’s Time”! So many agencies involved. So many politicians implicated or involved in the positive change. Ana and cronies infamous tenure of crime has resulted in positive change through the state as they disappear. To Sherman, Leon Bradley, Glenda Lockhart and all who helped them, great job! Alabama has been changed for the better. Through great compassion and persistently standing to expose the corruption, truth has been realized and significant change has occurred. So many Sheriff's Office employees did stay and endured holding it together if only by a thread until they to were no longer subject to Ana’s treachery. Sherman did not cost you your jobs, you did along with the truth.

  9. Ana thinks Federal court is like Burger King and she can have it her way.
