Excerpt from the Decatur Daily:
"Franklin, 54, was released today after posting a $5,000 bond, according to court records. Her sentencing is scheduled for May 13 at 11 a.m. in Huntsville."
We feel that we have been accused of everything in the book by Sheriff Franklin, had our office raided illegally, been accused of stalking Franklin, all of our computers seized by Franklin and later returned damaged beyond use, hundreds of documents taken and none of which were ever returned, claims that we tried to kill her, and destroyed a truck at her house in the middle of the night. To the best of our knowledge, these complaints have been investigated. On the other hand, and there is always another hand, Franklin went on live TV and told that the whistleblower was well known to law enforcement. She stated multiple times that the whistleblower was being investigated by Etowah County. She went to the state, she went to other outside counties to request they investigate the whistleblower. She promised to destroy the whistleblower and "make the whistleblower pay". Folks, the whistleblowers have paid dearly. We could go on and on about who is stalking whom but at this point what difference does it make? For us, we are content.
