I just read a tweet that 25 years.
"So much life ahead of me."
Prison will make you aware of that every day for the next 25 years. that's 9125 days. So much ahead of you, Misty.
Judge had no sympathy for her at all I see. Well, Ron sure did get the sugar out of this deal. Misty gets 25yrs for one of her charges as a first time offender and Ron got 15 yrs for 3 charges and had 2 of them dropped. Something is fishy is that town.
Misty Croslin will serve 25 years in prison for trafficking drugs, a St. Johns County judge ruled today.
Misty Croslin took the stand in her own defense, saying that she started selling drugs because she grew up poor
ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- Misty is being sentenced today for trafficking oxycodone, a prescription pain medication.
"It is wrong to drug deal, but when you grow up poor, that is what you do," she said on the stand during defense questioning.
She agreed that for the first time in her life, she is in control.
She also was questioned by Judge Wendy Berger who asked her why she should be treated different than her codefendants.
"I wouldn't be here if (the FBI) didn't come at me... I'm not a drug dealer," Croslin responded.
Berger disagreed. She pointed at Haleigh's family in the courtroom. "They're here because of Haleigh, you're here because of drugs."
Croslin also asked to be sentenced as a youthful offender. "I'm so young, I have a lot of life ahead of me...."
"But you like the money?" said Berger. "Yes," Croslin responded.
The state argued with Croslin about her involvement in the drug deals; she has persisted that she was not the leader and that the drug contacts were the groups' not hers alone.

My problem is not so much with what Misty got....but with what Ron didn't get.
If there's hink....there must be stink.

Wow! I wanted Misty to get 6 years, but not 25!

Well either she didn't really know anything about what happened that night or the truth may have gotten her more time I guess.
It's kinda scary that a judge can bring up a victim's family in an unrelated case though. Kinda like if they can't prove one we'll get you on another. For whatever Misty has done regarding the drug case in all reality that is not a lot of pills and what about the people who sold her their prescriptions?
Further, lots of people grow up poor MC and they don't sell drugs because of it... it's called public school = free education MO
It is what it is. No bargaining. No remorse from Misty. No accepting responsibility from Misty. No mercy from the court.
Clearly, she can't help herself without incriminating herself, so ... her silence on Haleigh is guaranteed.
Good, I only wish Ron got as many.
I'm going to tell my husband when he comes home from his job where he only gets 25-30 hours a week that we are going to try drug dealing. You know, because we are poor.
My grandparents, who lived thru a depression and eked out a living on next to nothing, would spin in their grave if they heard Misty say that.
You know, that's right! Even if our opinions differ, there isn't a better bunch to hang with!Well, looking at it from the bright side (is there one?), we couldn't be sitting it out with better people. At least we're all here together.
Greg Page was the man Misty had an affair with the weekend before HaLeigh went missing. His nickname is White Boy Greg and he is currently in PC jail. AH said WBG's roommate is Hank Croslin Senior and Hank likes Greg. Tommy said Misty had a boyfriend that beat her before she met Ronald.
I totally agree with what Judge Berger told her. IMO this isn't about "them" or Haliegh..........she was there in that courtroom because she trafficked drugs, period.
Even now she tries to blame her own wrongdoings on someone else.
If she got 25 years for one offense..........what in the heck is she going to get for multiple offenses? As of now she is a convicted felon.
I knew that LE always knew Misty was the ring leader.
And now I wonder if Misty had been doing this long before she even met RC.
She said that is what poor families do......sell drugs.

IMO, the sentence was "OVERKILL".

25 years? Wasn't expecting that large of a number.
Looks as if Misty doesn't fare any better in court testimony than she does with LD tests.
Anyone know how she reacted? Tears? Stamp her foot? Pull her own personal "finger gun."
