Sheriff Puckett calls 'em like he sees 'em

BLOGGER COMMENTS:  Folks, I have to preface this blog with the caveat:  IF TRUE...this is a helluva insight into the new sheriff's management style.  Read on.


Lawsuit: New Morgan sheriff fired officer because he was 'no use as a deputy'


 A court order so damaged the credibility of a Morgan County Sheriff’s Office deputy that he was fired last month by the new sheriff, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday by the former deputy, former Sheriff Ana Franklin and others.
“ 'You’re no use as a deputy,’ ” newly installed Sheriff Ron Puckett told Deputy Robert Wilson on Jan. 15, according to the lawsuit. “ 'You can’t testify in court, today. The DA’s office wouldn’t hear your testimony. As far as a useful deputy, you can’t even arrest anybody. You could, but because of the court order, the DA’s not going to hear your testimony. I recognize that it may be a matter of opinion, but opinion matters.’ ”
According to the lawsuit filed against former Morgan County Jail Warden Leon Bradley and Daniel Lockhart, Puckett referred to an April court order in firing Wilson and convincing Deputy Blake Robinson to resign. Wilson and Robinson are plaintiffs in the lawsuit, as are Franklin and Justin Powell, who remains employed at the Sheriff's Office as information technology coordinator. Lockhart, once a confidential informant for Franklin, is the grandson of a blogger sharply critical of the Franklin administration.
Provided with a copy of the complaint, Puckett on Thursday declined to comment on whether the quotes attributed to him were accurate.
“Unfortunately, it is our policy we will make no comment on personnel matters or any ongoing litigation,” Puckett said.


According to a motion filed with the complaint, the April order harmed the plaintiffs’ credibility to the point that “District Attorney (Scott Anderson) had stated his intent not to use Wilson or any of the other plaintiffs as witnesses.” The complaint alleges that since the April order, the plaintiffs have never “been called upon by the Morgan County District Attorney’s Office to provide sworn testimony.”

Anderson declined to comment Thursday, citing pending litigation against Franklin.
The story goes into detail and background and is worth your time to read the whole thing.  Here's the link:

  1. What did you expect you crooked, lying crooks? Did you really think a new honest, reputable Sheriff would keep you? Bones, I'm sure Sheriff Puckett offered you the same deal as Blake, to resign instead of being fired. Now you have fired on your record and probably lost your retirement. No, no one is ever going to hire you in law enforcement, you cannot be trusted. Your careers are over, you too Ana. You should have thought about that a long time ago instead of thinking you were above the law.

  2. Unbelievable, attacking Judge Thompson who was a great, fair, honest Judge. I hope all of Ana and her minions end up under the jail.

  3. When Ana became sheriff, she found out she could fire any one of the deputies for any reason, even if she didn’t like the way they looked. And she did. How is this any different? At least Sheriff Puckett has damn good reasons for getting rid of these people. What I don’t understand is why Justin Powell is still the IT person. He can’t be trusted either.

  4. Sheriff Puckett didn’t have any choice but to fire him. Wilson lost all of his credibility, and the district attorney for that reason chose not to prosecute any of Wilson’s arrests. The choice was simple.

  5. Bones...Karma is a belief that whatever you do will come back to you, either in this life or the next. It is embraced by followers of Buddhism, Hinduism, and others around the world. For some this is not only deeds, but thoughts and words as well.

  7. Congratulations to all who successfully exposed this group of corruption filled criminals. What an unbelievable mockery of a Sheriff. Like night and day now and hopefully Puckett will make right all that Ana did wrong and tried to destroy. Puckett is a proven capable leader and can handle making right the wrongs and building the Sheriff's Office and its honest employees into a place that will well serve the public.

  16. How can you sue someone when you are the proven liar in court Bones? The sheriff didn't make you unemployable, you did that to yourself by being underhanded and trying to set ppl up and you got caught. You are free to make a choice you aren't free from the consequences of that chioce. Grow up Bones you are a proven POS, lazy deputy and a racist. Dont get mad because the new sheriff didn't fall for your crap. Atleast you are known as a criminal now and not a criminal hiding behind your badge and gun because you no longer have one. WAY TO GO PUCKETT!!!

    1. Nah...let her have it. It's sorta like her memorial for her law enforcement career. It was fake just like that account is. She'll be child ish about it and keep it up to rub people the wrong way. Because, well, she can't do much else.lol

  19. This is what happens when people are not held accountable for their actions for so long the lines become blurred between right and wrong. I mean to Wilson, what difference did it make. The devil sure had a hold of his coat tails. Now he acts like he doesn't understand why he's in this situation because Ana freely allowed him to do whatever without any direction, leadership and most of all no accountability. I guess now that its finally happening he doesn't know HOW to take responsibility for it because he's never had to do that. Hard lesson to learn when you are older. It's a sad sight to see.

  29. Why is 80 year old Livingston still employed there. As a jailer previous captain. Good question. Shouldn't that ol man be enjoying his retirement like corley

    1. He does not have enough time in law enforcement to retire. A rookie and a Captian. Hasn't arrest anyone in 30+ years when he was law enforcement many years ago for a short time.

    2. So Livingston has been there 8 years? That means he has to work for two more ears to get to the minimum 10 years required by RSA, smh

  30. Ron Livingston is a joke! The Republican party of Morgan County sure took a beating. Seems all those who were corrupt in their organization has pretty much washed out. Lots of cleansing going on. Some of it worked itself out before the hammer falls.

  31. Where did Ron Livingston’s Tom Fredrick’s and Ana Franklin’s top-notch brown noser Micheal Johnson go? Another fine example of Morgan County Republican Party and gang of misguided idiots who think they got it going on. Arrogance gone silent there?

  32. Ron Livingston. Good old Morgan County politics playing here, and Puckett is letting it happen. He should have been fired but his brother duck of Priceville town council fame is begging for brother Ron to keep his job for two more years which will give Ron 10 years in the state retirement system. So Puckett is playing along. Nothing new here it’s the good old boy Morgan County political system at work.

    1. Ron Livingston should have definitely been fired. At least he is in the jail (he should be an inmate though) with no rank and having to actually work for his pay and not able to steal rodeo funds and equipment that belongs to Sheriff's Office. When Sheriff Puckett gets through with his inventory audit he will find all the missing equipment Livingston has stolen and will get fired then. Won't be able to get him, Ana and other cronies on the rodeo funds because of cash sales.

  33. On the recent drug bust on the news, it was really nice to see Ron give his deputies credit also. Ana just praised drug unit and herself of course, never to deputies even though they initiated the bust with a traffic stop most of the time. Way to go Sheriff Ron Puckett. You have been a breath of fresh air for Morgan County Sheriff's Office.
