I was contacted this morning via email from the freealexander.org website contact form by a gentleman claiming that his own son had been processed through the same Waynesville nc/Haywood County nc court, with many of the same players as Alexander. I gave him a call and we talked for upwards of an hour. His son is pulling 10 years in state prison for a similar circumstance: Underage and guilty of adolescent mischief. The fella said that his son was afforded NO concurrent sentencing, just like Alexander. He was promised a deal by the assistant DA, Taylor Reid, but as soon as DISTRICT ATTORNEY MIKE BONFOEY entered the courtroom, that punishment was doubled to 10 years because they went back on their deal of offering concurrent sentencing. I find it absolutely disturbing that DA Bonfoey insists on destroying the lives of these young people in order to re-balance his dismal bottom line. My advice to Bonfoey would be to stop allowing deals AND concurrent sentencing to people like William Russell who raped a baby for 3 years, or Steven Yow who burned the Barberville Baptist Chruch fellowship hall to the ground causing 2 million in damages. He worked with those guys …. he afforded BOTH of them concurrent sentencing resulting in piss poor wrist slaps.
I know what you’re doing … I’ve known for some time now. I have the stats to prove it too. Bureau of justice stats compiled, and currently being compiled, by a bureau statistician. As soon as he completes his research, I’m gonna use them to write a book filled with your name. Look for it.
One last note: I asked the fella who sent me the email how he found the website. He said “I did a google search for “Waynesville DA” …. our web presence is beginning to take root. Each evening I do a little more optimization of this website. I plug us into one more social bookmark, or submit to one more article directory, or I convert articles to RSS and sumbit them into syndication.
Once I publish this post, I’ll go and, as usual, ping the site to over 120 RPC2 sites.
