Kentucky Pretrial Services A Southern Good Old Boy Culture Of Corruption?

by: Hillbilly

Sat Feb 05, 2011 at 16:45:30 PM EST


Let me begin by saying this is an opinion and I'm sure most of the people in Kentucky's Pretrial Services are honest, diligent, hard working people, but I believe it's necessary to point out how system like this could really be a culture of corruption.

I've often wondered why folks get different results when dealing with Kentucky's court systems. How is it that some folks qualify for the Pretrial Diversion Program and some folks go to jail? If you're close to a Pretrial Officer, friend or family would your chances be better? I don't know for sure, but questions like this need need to be asked and I suggest a system like this is fertile for a culture of cronyism, nepotism and good old boy Southern justice.

Kentucky Court Of Justice
How do I know if I or a loved one qualifies for MCR (Monitored Conditional Release) or Diversion?
Pretrial Officers recommend to the court those persons who meet the criteria for MCR. Check with your local officer as these criteria may be different from county to county.


As you can see Pretrial Officer's recommendation can carry a lot of weight with the court and the criteria may be different from county to county. Are you getting the picture? There's no uniformity. For example: If a person in Hardin County Kentucky and a person in Russell County Kentucky are arrested for the same thing and they have the same background their court experience could be very different, one could be kept in jail and one could be (Monitored Conditional Release) or set up with a Pretrial Diversion Program.

So how could cronyism and good old boy Southern justice exist in a system like this? I suggest this isn't rocket science. It's just a matter of taking a look at the system. If the criteria for programs like Diversion are different in every Kentucky County then we are looking at 120 different rules for justice here in Kentucky. How's that for muddying up the system? Then we have the Pretrial Officers and Pretrial Officer Supervisors that deal with judges every day. To suggest that Pretrial Officers and Pretrial Officer Supervisors and the judges don't develop relationships is ludicrous. Furthermore to believe everyone, including Pretrial Officers, Pretrial Officer Supervisors and Judges, in this system of justice are honest is naive, to say the least.

I'm requesting the Kentucky Attorney General to investigate this system and let us know if and where corruption exist.

Also if you know of anyone that has received special treatment, due to cronyism, nepotism or any other reason, let us know.

As best as I can tell Kim Thornton a Pretrial Service Manager in the Paducah (Mc Cracken) area. Is Kim Thornton kin to Christopher D Gray, Robert "Jared" Moss, Brandon Walraven or Ashley P. Moss. If so, are they receiving special treatment?

Pretrial is a farce (4.00 / 2)
First, one only has to look at Supreme court Justice Will T. Scott who obtained his son a job as a pretrial officer despite the fact the son was a drug addict and had prior arrests for his drug addiction.

Later, there was a lawsuit because the son got an undeserved promotion while the other employee, not a drug addict, and not a convict got fired.  Talk to Ned Pillersdorf about that one.

Second, my own personal experience.  Well, the pretrial officer moonlighted as an employee of VLAK, a non profit organization which obtained pro bono services from attorneys for indigent individuals.

The guy knew about the situation and helped to further the retaliation at me.  He had my bond set at five thousand dollars cash.  I had never been arrested before, or since.  In face, in my whole life I only had one speeding ticket.  The guy also lied about who the judge was who signed the bond amount and warrant.

Needless to say, the district court judge dismissed the single criminal charge against me after months and months of the case going nowhere.  Then, when the Commonwealth attorney took the dismissed charge to the grand jury;  the grand jury refused to indict.

Indictments are easy to get.  So, its obvious the charge was baseless.

But yea, the whole prosecutorial system along with the pretrial office needs to be retooled.

It a appears Ashley P. Moss will be going to court again 02/15/2011 for speeding 17 MPH over the limit, failure to produce insurance card and possession of marijuana. Click here to see MCCRACKEN County DISTRICT Court Docket for 02/15/2011.
