It's pretty apparent that LE believes that Misty was the leader of these drugs deals and was not a novice, based upon the testimony of Travis Smith. He's an FBI Investigator, not just a local cop. Reading between the lines, it sounds to me like they also consider Misty the primary perpetuator of the crime against Haleigh. They are not interested in Ron Cummings; they are interested in Misty Croslin. Ron C was a byproduct of the drug sting, due to his own stupidity. If he had not tagged along, he would be sitting at home instead of in prison, same as Donna and Hope. My opinion is that his prior arrests are similar to those of many other young PC men and they all were handled about the same way. Now that PC is cracking down on the middle drug-dealers, they all got caught. But LE definitely has shown a special interest in Misty and this says a lot.
