  1. Is the Sgt. fessing up and admitting he lied OR is he recanting the truth? There's not enough info here to be able to even begin to know.

  2. This sergeant was acquitted on all of these charges after a jury trial in Jefferson County District Court on 8/16/2010.

  3. This guy is bad news!

  4. Whoever said "This guy is bad news" doesn't know what they are talking about. Right Eric!!!

  5. I have personal experience with this nut case criminal cop. He should be behind bars!

  6. Hey Kemper's, quit crying because you didn't win against this outstanding Sergeant. Eric, you don't have the guts to stand up to to so keep your mouth shut!

  7. Behind the blue can't beleive everything you read in the paper. This guy did nothing wrong and you are slandering his name and I should let him know so he can sue you for libel. I doubt this will get posted though!!!!
