The Wells guy looks like he seen a ghost lol. If their judicial system is anything like ours, then these boys have nothing to worry about and should take the opportunity to get their lives straightened out. Our revolving door judicial system (Lawrence, Johnson, Martin) over here has resulted in severe jail overcrowding. It's always above capacity because the same people are fed to the system over and over and over again with little to no punishment, and that is at the heart of the overflow issue.

Wayne Co needs to leave innocent mothers and children alone. Quit wasting court resources on taking children away from their mother and given them to worthless grandparents all on a hearsay. If anyone tries to sell a cookstove ask him where they stole it from.
