From what limited experience I have (and, no it was not a good experience), all defendants are expected to plead not guilty at their first appearance. One lawyer explained it to me as, if you plead guilty the Judge has to sentence then and there, and he doesn't want to deal with that. I feel sure most of this crew, if not all, will end up taking plea deals which includes an admission of guilt. There's no way they are getting out of this.
If I bring some brownies, can I come watch too? I'm dying to see these tapes.
Yeah, that goes well with Ron's statement (to the journalist) that he won't be doing what he was doing before (or what he was "allegedly" doing) when he gets out of prison. Sounds innocent to me !The print edition has a sub-headline that says:
Ronald says he's innocent,
Misty Croslin due in court today.
I thought that was quite a s t r e t c h by the editor, lol.
The way I see it Whisperer, is that first of all, PC has received a lot of flack about all of those previous drug charges with no convictions for Ron...number 1. The second thing is LE has not, by far, cleared Ron in Haleigh's disappearance...number 2. The third thing is the FDLE, FBI are also looking in on this case, and any sweeping under the rug will be next to impossible...number 3. This case has gone national, too many people are watching, LE has to prosecute Ron now...number 4. Ron's bail is high and this represents LE's seriousness in prosecuting Ron (and the others). I feel sure Ron's past luck in evading jail/prison time has run out. JMO.The one case that bothers me concerning ron was when they found him with Heroin, cocaine, meth, ecstasy, Date rape drugs, marijauna, drug paraphenalia, three illegal prescription meds...ALL at one time.
.......YET he didn't serve a day!!!
The strategy, sources tell me has always been to do whatever it takes to make Croslin hit rock bottom, isolated, alone, needy and desperate enough to do something like deal drugs and get busted, providing the kind of leverage investigators figure they needed to psyche out the one person they maintain still holds the key to unlocking the Haleigh mystery—the ex babysitter who reported the five year old missing Feb. 9, 2009.
He also says Teresa Neves denies Misty ever offered to pay her to babysit. “Teresa has remarked that ‘if she’d called and asked me, I would have done it.’”
So, does Cummings believe Misty is a killer?
“He has no idea what happened to Haleigh,” says Shoemaker. “Whether she had something to do with it, he doesn’t know. But he does believe she holds the answers.”
“My phone records show call Joe called his girlfriend, Jennifer, between six and 9 p.m. that night,” says Chelsea. She was planning to drive him back to Tennessee the next day, sources close to the case tell me. “Tommy called Joe about 10 p.m.,” Chelsea adds, and apparently took the van and picked up Tommy.
“Ronald was usually very secretive about his guns, but that night they were all drinking beer and getting along, so he pulled them out,” Chelsea Croslin tells me in an exclusive interview. She says she fell asleep with husband Timmy, Misty’s other brother, and that Joe took her phone and the van to pick up brother Tommy and go to the trailer with machine guns on his mind.
Shoemaker says..."He has no idea what happened to Haleigh, says Shoemaker. Whether she had something to do with it, he doesnt know. But he does believe she holds the answers.
WTH? Now Shoemaker is doing the double-speak. He's been hanging around ron too long. Shoemaker used to dazzle us with just BS now he has reduced himself to babble.
What an awful strategy...to isolate a teenager into selling drugs.What??? Croslin wasn't isolated and alone when she was dealing drugs, Ronald was right there with her along with a bunch of other relatives. She looked pretty happy to me. "Babbyyy..."
I'm confused, I thought TN allegedly offered to pay Misty to babysit.
So he got a plea deal for giving them nothing in exchange? He's gonna get off lighter because he agreed to testify against Misty and say he knows nothing? :waitasec:
While Tommy has changed his story more than runway models change clothes, his ex wife, Lindsay, maintains he was home with the kids when she returned from nursing school about 10:15 p.m. and they had dinner and went to bed. She says if he left, she never heard him.
Shes adamant, says Chelsea, but I have letters contradicting her time line. Im just not able to explain the differences.
I wonder if that pic was taken before or after their somber appearance on GMA? & wasn't there a search for Haleigh going on, back home? As they say say, 'a picture is worth a thousand words'. & who took it? TN? Gross...& with that image in my head, I'm off to bed.
