What is the current stats of Greg Steenson?

Blogger Comments:  We understand that Greg Steenson is still in jail.  We can't help but wonder when his day in court will come.  We have waited a long time to see some of the local issues resolved once and for all.  We have watched as some of those involved lost their jobs or didn't run for office again.  We have to admit to the change in sheriff's office management things have come a long way since January 2011.  

Getting back to Steenson.  He has been in jail for a long time.  It would be nice to see at least some closure to the havoc that he, the previous sheriff, and others caused around the county.  We may never see the closure that many of us believe we deserve.  It sometimes appears that those who invest their time in screwing others come out way ahead of the rest of us.  Don't believe it.  They laugh, snicker, point their fingers at us, they make jokes because they lie, cheat, steal and they believe they got away with their wrongdoings.  They didn't.  That is why they are constantly looking over their shoulders, believe they are being followed, or someone is watching them.  They are.  It's called their conscience or lack thereof.  

One day for the whistleblower, Warden Leon Bradley, and the rest of the people hurt by the good-for-nothing conduct of previous law enforcement officers we will be able to close this chapter of our lives as if it was just a bad dream.  No.  Not a bad dream.  It is a reoccurring nightmare.  

Wonder who the next private investigator will be sent down to Georgia to try to make a deal?  We believe that what Private Investigator Dawn Hendricks did was wrong, unethical, and just plain stupid.  Don't leave the state without a license. 

There is a lot to be said for all the hard work that went into getting rid of the ash and trash that used to call themselves law enforcement in Morgan County.  It may be a while before some of us can move on but the great thing for our county and those who currently work for the Morgan County Sheriff's Office have a new leader.  A leader that is going to do the right thing for his office, employees, the county, and the citizens of our county.

Keep in mind that when we are blowing off steam that it has nothing to do with our current situation,  it is from things still to come.

Man indicted for 'con game' at crooked car lot where sheriff invested food funds

A man has been indicted on 15 felony charges for a "con game" at a now bankrupt crooked car lot where the Morgan County Sheriff invested jail food money, authorities said.
Greg Steenson, already a federal felon, has been indicted on multiple charges of theft, forgery, fraud and financial exploitation of an elderly person, court records show. He's also accused of selling unregistered securities and selling securities as an unregistered agent.In 2015, Steenson was co-owner of Priceville Partners, LLC., which operated a used car lot in Morgan County. Steenson sold or traded to eight people vehicles for which he didn't hold legal titles, according to the indictments.
"The victims either paid cash to Steenson or traded their vehicle, or a combination of the two, for vehicles for which the victims were unable to obtain titles," said Dan Lord, a spokesman for the Alabama Securities Commission, in a news release "Additionally, Steenson allegedly forged the signature of two victims on title applications."
Morgan County District Attorney Scott Anderson called Steenson's activity a "con game."
The car lot has repeatedly made news during the past three years, including when it was revealed Sheriff Ana Franklin had used the local jail inmate feeding account to invest $150,000 in Priceville Partners. The sheriff was held in contempt of court because she violated a federal court order by using the inmate food money. The sheriff and other investors have not been charged with any crimes associated with the car lot fraud allegations.The sheriff's ties to the car lot first surfaced when Priceville Partners filed bankruptcy.
The sheriff's ex-boyfriend Steven Ziaja also was listed as a creditor in the bankruptcy filing. Ziaja, a now-former Alabama Law Enforcement Agency employee, has been indicted on more than a dozen charges, including using his position for personal gain. Authorities haven't said publicly whether his charges are connected to the car lot.
Steenson initially was arrested for theft and forgery in August 2016. A grand jury this past week issued indictments on those charges as well as charges brought by Joseph Borg, director of the Alabama Securities Commission.
Steenson was released on bail after his initial arrest, but Morgan County Circuit Judge Glenn Thompson today ordered he be held without bond. Anderson's office asked for a bond revocation because prosecutors say he violated the terms of his release.
"Part of his bond conditions was he couldn't buy, sell or trade vehicles," Anderson said. "But he went to Birmingham and engaged in the same con game with two car dealers, promising he would deliver if they would invest."Because of Steenson's ties to the Morgan County sheriff, he is being held in the Limestone County jail.
Steenson went to federal prison for a check-kiting scheme in the 90s.
