    Haleigh's father negotiating for 15-year sentence in drug case
    Ronald Cummings would testify at upcoming trials of codefendants

    In exchange for testimony at possible trials of his former wife and her brother, Ronald Cummings is negotiating for a 15-year sentence on drug-trafficking charges, his attorney said this morning.

    Folowing a a pretrial hearing in Putnam County Cummings was given a July 19 trial date, his attorney said he and Cummings hope to have the deal within two weeks or possibly sooner.

    An attempt stalled Wednesday to make a deal with the state, said Terry Shoemaker.

    The sentencing range would likely be a 15-year minimum mandatory with a possible 30-year maximum, Shoemaker said.

    Shoemaker said negotiations are not finished but part of the expected deal would mean Cummings would not be sentenced until after the Croslins are tried if those cases go to a jury.

    Croslin Jr. is scheduled for court this afternoon for a pretrial conference.

    At his pretrial conference, he could offer to accept a plea agreement if one has been worked out with prosecutors. Otherwise, the judge will assign a trial date and a final date the court will accept a negotiated deal.

    Misty Croslin is scheduled for court in June.

    In it, he tells Hollars to get his wife on the phone, asking for his lawyer.

    "I need her to get my lawyer down here, it's important," Croslin said.

    "I have to do something that I should have done a long time ago...just scared, don't want no one to hurt my kids." He has three children.

    "Do you know, Tommy?" Hollars asked him.

    "All I know is he's got to pay; he can't get to none of us so it don't matter," Croslin replied.

    "It ain't me. No, it's not me, she (his wife, Lindsey) should know that...she's already heard the story," he continued.

    "Is it the story that Misty said?" Hollars asked.

    "Yeah, that's it."

    "Joe?"

    "Yep." <snipped>

    Lawyer: Plea deal likely in Cummings drug case

    Ronald Cummings, the father of missing Putnam County girl Haleigh Cummings, is set to stand trial on drug-trafficking charges on July 19, but his lawyer said Cummings will likely agree to a plea deal before then.

    Speaking after a hearing before Circuit Judge Terry LaRue in Palatka Thursday morning, attorney Terry Shoemaker said Cummings, 26, will likely agree to plead to three of five charges. Each of those three charges carries a minimum mandatory prison sentence of 15 years.

    Two of the five charges - involving trafficking in larger amounts of prescription drugs - carry a minimum sentence of 25 years. Shoemaker said the tentative deal in the works involves dropping those two, more severe charges. The plea deal might be completed by July 1, he said. Cummings would agree to testify against his co-defendants and would be sentenced after those case went to trial.

    Tommy Croslin was scheduled to appear in court for a hearing at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

    2010.05.13 Jail Audio: Tommy Croslin Implicates Cousin in Haleigh Cummings Case

    "Snip" http://www.thesky973.com/pages/7040801.php
    Newly released audio of a conversation between Tommy & his grandmother, Hollars, implicates his cousin Joe Overstreet in the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings.

    Putnam County Sheriff changed the nature of the investigation last month from an abduction to a homicide after items were discovered in the river.

    Last month, Tommy Croslin and Misty Croslin were taken from their jail cells by investigators to the boat ramp at Shell Harbour where searches were taking place.

    After a pre-trial hearing with Cummings, Shoemaker said they were trying to negotiate a plea deal in exchange for testimony against the other defendants

    On the table in the deal, according to Terry Shoemaker, are the two "upper level" trafficking charges, each of which carries a minimum mandatory sentence of 25 years.

    By working with the three lesser charges, Shoemaker said he hopes Cummings would end up with a sentence of 15 to 30 years.

    Shoemaker clarified the deal being worked out is in no way tied to the search for Haleigh who is now presumed dead, according to Sheriff Hardy.

    Failing the deal, Cummings is scheduled to go to trial July 19.

    "For the cooperation he has been giving over the Haleigh Cummings case, I would try to argue (his sentence) down...," Werter said. "We brought him to FDLE in Putnam County and that's how they ended up at the river -- through Tommy's help. Otherwise this case would still be in a quagmire. We have the dots, it's just connecting them."
