West Kittanning Woman Sentenced to Intermediate Punishment

During a five-month crime period in 2012, Jaysa Kuntz of West Kittanning allegedly stole various items from the local area – some of which with her husband and daughter close-by.

Yesterday, the 30-year old was sentenced before President Judge Kenneth Valasek for eight different crimes committed.

For all, Kuntz – who reportedly now goes by her married name of Jaysa Sheasley – will serve four years in the county’s Intermediate Punishment program and six months of electronic monitoring.

After 42 months of compliance, certain sanctions would be lifted.

An Intermediate Punishment Program has been described as a sentence imposed between incarceration and traditional probation. Once qualified, Jaysa’s sentence will be structured to her particular needs.

Anyone who reportedly does not follow the conditions of intermediate punishment is placed in the county jail to serve the remainder of their sentence.

That charge directly relates to a misdemeanor theft of a cash register from the Ford’s Flowers store in West Kittanning Borough July 27, other felony offenses in a July 29 Kittanning Borough burglary and a misdemeanor theft of a .380 caliber pistol from a Kittanning Borough safe July 25.

The cash register stolen from Ford’s Flowers had about $400 inside and was not recovered, though the register was found near a Cowansville Sunoco Service Station.

No further penalty for allegedly stealing $90 in gasoline from the Sheetz gas station in Manor Township in June 2012 was assessed. Jaysa pled guilty to the summary offense.

Jaysa allegedly scammed the station on two separate occasions in June – at 1:35 PM June 18 and at 11:21AM June 23.

According to state police troopers, Jaysa claimed to have bought $90 worth of gasoline and said she never received the gasoline after paying inside. An attendant turned on the pump for her on both occasions.

Jaysa is also sentenced from using drugs, entering any premises selling alcohol, will undergo a mental health evaluation and perform 20 hours of community service.

She was credited with 28 days in Armstrong County Jail. In August, Jaysa was originally released on her own recognizance by District Magisterial Judge James Owen.

Jaysa also is required to pay a $100 fine and $581.50 in restitution.

    There you have it folks. The proverbial slap on the wrist. Who says crime does not pay.

  • By justmyopinion, February 27, 2013 @ 10:49 AM

    Thank You Tax Payers, You Will Pay For Her To Try To Get Her Crap Together! After Her Little Error Of Ways.

  • By whatthecrap, February 27, 2013 @ 3:30 PM

    oh worthington man, did you expect anything but the nothing that she got from this little town.. You are correct about the slap on the wrist. What a punishment it is to sit at your house and watch tv while under electronic monitoring. Let’s all remember that the article says she needs to stay away from places that serve alcohol. We’ll see.

  • By mary02, February 27, 2013 @ 8:32 PM

    After 8 crimes were committed?? That will really teach her….

  • By Darkstar, February 28, 2013 @ 3:04 AM

    If she violates her probation, and does not adhere to any of this…I believe she will be sent to prison. I don’t feel bad for this young woman at all. Who I feel bad for is her child. That child is not going to have a chance, with a mother like this. Not much of a future there. And the door wide open her for Mom to take the opportunity to get better…let’s hope she can prove everyone wrong, and turn around for the better. Otherwise, she is just another pathetic statistic.

  • By kittanning, February 28, 2013 @ 12:37 PM

    Didn’t she also take her child with her on these crime sprees????? Where is the charges for that?

  • By kittanning, February 28, 2013 @ 12:39 PM

    Please don’t tell me she has custody of that child!!!!!!

  • By kittanning, February 28, 2013 @ 12:57 PM

    Guess time will tell. Let’s hope she does not go to jail like her older brother did for drug charges.

  • By mrprazenica, February 28, 2013 @ 4:45 PM

    And I love this part too…’Once qualified, Jaysa’s sentence will be structured to her particular needs.’ She’s a criminal and the courts are going to structure her sentence based on her needs. Who is running the asylum? Apparently the inmates in Armstrong Couty!

  • By jennipher, February 28, 2013 @ 6:37 PM

    This is a joke. She’s not even ordered to go to rehab. Lets not forget that she violated her bond numerous times for shoplifting. And you’re right it says stay away from places that serve alcohol. But she can save that for when she’s done sitting at home for six months. WHAT A PUNISHMENT!!! This makes me sick. Good job Armstrong county. I bet she gets the help she needs to overcome her addiction from not even going to rehab. Don’t worry people she will get herself in more trouble if she doesn’t change her ways. I doubt this is the last time we see her name in the paper.

  • By jennipher, February 28, 2013 @ 6:39 PM

    Maybe the mental health evaluation will help her??

  • By UWannaBME, February 28, 2013 @ 10:43 PM

    “Sit at home and watch TV”….”Tax payers will pay for her to try to get her crap together”….And this is any different than sitting in a Jail and sleeping all day and watching TV? Last time I checked, low risk offenders were always given a lighter sentence. And if the choosing was to have her “jailed” within the walls of her own home, then so be it. Less money paid out to house a prisoner, medical checks, etc. If you really think that sitting inside a jail cell for any length of time is going to fix someone, then you are moronic. Nothing is learned inside a prison, except creating more ways to rip the honest people off. They have ALL DAY to sit and think of ways to steal from you.

  • By mrprazenica, March 1, 2013 @ 11:13 AM

    UWannaBMe-you are a joke! ‘They have ALL DAY to sit and think of ways to steal from you.’ Well what the hell do you think she will do sitting at home? Prison has a purpose – to show that there are consequences for your actions. If your parents didn’t teach you that then they failed as parents. What fantasy world do you live in? That is the problem with todays society. Parents don’t want to be parents and make the hard tough love decisions, they want to be your friend and not hurt their childs feelings. I say BS bring corporal punishment back to the schools and let kids know that life is full of failing and what matters is can you pick yourself up after. Apparently this girl didn’t and now she should reap the ‘benefite’ of her inappropriate actions!

  • By whatthecrap, March 1, 2013 @ 2:47 PM

    Amen mrprazenica. Could not have said it better. Jail = no child or family around..no comfortable bed, computer or cell phone etc. this sets a huge bad example!

  • By lollypop, March 1, 2013 @ 6:16 PM

    darkstar i disagree with you about the child not having a chance. Ill bet she could figure out an episode of law and order faster than you. It isnt any held to the child to keep talking about her. Do you know what happened of do you just sit around reading the newspaper? If so i guess you never had a chance wow and like most of you get the facts before you write. I’m only talking about the child so get it write.

  • By jorn jensen, March 1, 2013 @ 9:07 PM

    mrprazenica – I highly agree with your posts. Very well done.

    I also ‘caught’ “will serve 4 years in the county’s Intermediate Punishment program” and “An Intermediate Punishment Program has been described as a sentence imposed between incarceration and traditional probation. Once qualified, Jaysa’s sentence will be structured to her particular needs.”

    What?

    That is the most liberal version of the term punishment that I have ever read or heard of….

  • By Smoke, March 1, 2013 @ 10:34 PM

    Lots of Einsteins here….what should we do? I have an idea. What about just shooting her? It would be simple and cheap. Survival of the fittest. It can be done in the riverfront park named after that crooked politician.

  • By jorn jensen, March 2, 2013 @ 8:10 AM

    Smoke – If found guilty in a court of law, simply incarceration would suffice for the definition of the word punishment. Hopefully, some social services people would get involved at the jail to help people with their personal problems getting into these sorts of troubles. No need for extreme measures like you mention.

    I agree with you on the crooked politician – give him a dollar of taxes and he brings home 17 cents in pork to build the park. On a mural of marines erecting a flag in some government office corridor in Washington, DC, he had the artists change one of the marine’s faces to be his likeness. Truth.

  • By lollypop, March 2, 2013 @ 12:17 PM

    wow smoke i guess there’s good reasons people hide behind these fake names. I’ll bet you come from a good family with no problems. Talk is cheap and like the other rats in this town i would bet you would talk or run. Get real with your bs that’s why this town is like it is. I would rather see a drug dealer with a gun instead than you wow!!!

  • By rukmini, March 2, 2013 @ 2:58 PM

    i agree with you jennipher–she did violated her bond—she was not to drink but was out drinking—she did not go to a 28 day stay program–a mental health evalvation would only help if they have a clear mind to let it—i thought that when they said that she needs to stay away from places that have alcohol that meant were she is staying at also???–also law-in-forcement does pharmaceutical drugs count???? —also like lollypop said you do not know the child and why do you keep talking about her, she is in the hands of caring people not jaysa (notice i did not call her Mother of the child

  • By kittanning, March 2, 2013 @ 4:46 PM

    Time will tell on how much more trouble she will get into. Let’s just hope she does not take her kid along next time. Cause maybe putting her child in danger just deserves another slap on the wrist. Guess someone just has to get hurt or killed next time. Then people will say.,. Why is that all she got last time? You got to remember she also committed crimes after this. Theft at a walmart with her child with her!! She is at home I’m sure on food stamps and all the assistance. She has her nice big cell phone and always on Facebook. Sorry that just does not seem like any punishment. Like I said time will tell. And mist likely we will be commented about her again.

  • By kittanning, March 3, 2013 @ 12:25 PM

    And let’s hope is someone sees her out drinking after
    the six months they call the probation.

  • By UWannaBME, March 3, 2013 @ 9:35 PM

    How many of you guys have worked in Corrections for 10+ years???? Anybody? Didn’t think so. I have, and do presently. Incarceration for low risk offenders only creates a larger monster. I see it every day of the week that I am locked in a prison for 8 hours. Disconnecting low risk offenders from other more violent and careless offenders is key, hence being evaluated by personnel once committed. They are housed in different areas of the jail, partially because of this. Do you have children? If your child was considered a low risk, low flight offender, would you want them inside 4 small walls with offenders that murdered? No, and I wouldn’t either. Take a long look at yourselves and put yourself in the shoes of the ones who commit the crimes. Heck, put yourselves in the shoes of the Judge making the decisions. It will help you understand why things are done the way they are. How about before flying off the handle and calling other people “jokes” that you use your internet connection to educate yourself. It appears that some of you could use some smarts. As I said before, most offenders who commit crimes are influenced very easily by others. Placing these “low risk” offenders with higher risk offenders will only create more of a problem in the future. There are boundaries and rules in place even in house arrest. Interview some prisoners. Most say they would rather sit in a jail cell than be on house arrest. How do I know? 10+ years of walking the blocks of a prison.

  • By jennipher, March 3, 2013 @ 11:26 PM

    I agree having a nice comfy bed, her big fancy cell phone, her boyfriends visiting everyday, her family …. The list goes on and on and this is hardly a punishment. As for the alcohol it’s known that she was out galavanting at the bars while she was out on bond and was to be refraining from alcohol and drugs. She clearly posted on her facebook page that she was drinking. When she was originally released from jail she was to attend inpatient rehab, which she did not. She was incarcerated in both Butler and Armstrong counties AFTER she was released. This should have violated her. But for some unknown reason she gets out of everything. Makes me wonder??? One thing I know for sure is that being a horrible person will get her nowhere in life. The ppl she surrounds herself with in the community are just as big of a joke as she is and are as fake as she is. She will get what’s coming to her because she can’t handle the reality of living a sober life. In the end she will fail. I’m certain of that.

  • By rukmini, March 4, 2013 @ 12:38 AM

    she not only had theft at wal mart—but theft at a store in butler—she got probation for that one.

  • By worthingtonman, March 4, 2013 @ 11:27 AM

    @uwannabeme

    Laws were written for a reason and so were the punishments. The punishments are in place to be painful. to isolate, to rehabilitate. Now we give them the comforts of home. Cable television, gyms commissarry. Take prison back to what it was meant to be Make a individual miserable. make them serve their full sentence. If they are not being rehabilitated, then maybe the corrections department should look at their programs and finding out why they have such a poor Recidivism rate. And I would have to question what a low rate offender is a low risk offender? A dui? A burglar?
    A petty thief? Follow the sentencing as written with the law. Make them miserable. Maybe they will not be so apt to come back. Do you know how many people already sit at home all day looking at T.V.,not going to a job, having conjungal time, smoking cigarettes, surfing the web, talking on the phone, spending time with their loved ones? How can this be considered punishment for criminals when so many are already enjoying it? What is going on with these slaps on the wrist is creating more criminals, because the potential penalties make the potential gains from crime worth it. Look at the crimes this particular individual committed while out on bail. You got 158 beds in the jail, fill them up.

  • By kittanning, March 4, 2013 @ 4:25 PM

    What qualifies her as low risk???????? Gun theft? Drugs? Theft in stores? Taking her child with her during this? On the news it said considered armed and dangerous? Then all of a sudden they are both walking the streets. Scary thing to know that this is all considered low risk! Jennipher I agree with you. We will see this about her again. Let’s just hope no one is hurt or killed next time around! Just remember these are the things she got CAUGHT doing. Who knows the people she has done stuff to. If she has not went into a rehab then they need to send every drug addict her way. Who needs rehab when Jaysa has the answer and is cured. She still does not own up to what she has done. Her and her family blame it all on her ex husband. He got her all caught up in all of this. No no she is not a teenager but an adult who chose to put her child and others in harms way,

  • By jennipher, March 4, 2013 @ 11:05 PM

    @ rukmini Yes she did and she was on butler probation and out drinking at the bars every weekend and never got any consequences for that. I just think she is a disgrace to society and she must be manipulating the system just like she manipulates everyone else in her life. Makes me sick.

  • By Darkstar, March 4, 2013 @ 11:37 PM

    @”lollypop”….why are you taking all of this personally? That to me is strange. You can, if you want to, answer other folks posts in here respectfully. You seem to choose not to do that, making yourself look foolish and immature. So sorry for you. Really…all of this is very simple: DON’T DO THE CRIME IF YOU CANNOT DO THE TIME.

  • By jennipher, March 5, 2013 @ 9:04 AM

    @ kittanning. Well said. Since Jaysa is cured and doesn’t need rehab to recover from her heroin addiction and addiction to men then we should just send all the addicts to her house so she can help them. And exactly how is this her ex husbands fault??? That’s just too much. That’s typical addict behavior to blame other ppl for your problems and boo hoo to the judge and say it was all his fault. Not to mention bringing ppl in to lie for you in the courtroom and say how well you’re doing when everyone knows about your drinking. I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels this way on the matter.

  • By UWannaBME, March 5, 2013 @ 10:27 AM

    Worthingtonman: While most would agree that unruly inmates should be beaten with a night stick and drug around the halls of the prison by their hair, etc…this is in the past. Inmates have more rights than the officers who patrol the prison. That’s just the way it is these days, and there is no way around it. You are correct about the prison having 158 beds. 99% of the time the population is at that number or exceeds it. This isn’t 1925 anymore (although the town of Kittanning mirrors that era still today), it is 2013. New and more effective ways of rehabilitation takes place. Not beating prisoners. Get with it.

  • By 724rep, March 5, 2013 @ 12:49 PM

    Darkstar” you just made yourself look foolish. Do you know the fax’s no because you said “i believe” You post all bs! Maybe sit back next time and let the people that know the fax’ post first. Because buy reading this its clear that they know what happened i didn’t see anybody taking it personal. Yes you do have to pay for crime nobody said that the point is that sick people like you talk about this little girl maybe keep the focus on the mother she really needs the help .I think if you take time out of your day to read the comments you will understand what lollypop was talking about. when you say somebody should be shoot that’s what they were talking about so take your time reading.What do you run the show on this page that somebody can’t say what they want wow!!! Ok everybody check with Darkstar before you comment.so so so sorry for you That you watch these comments and have no idea what your talking about. So so so sorry if you take it personal.

  • By rukmini, March 5, 2013 @ 3:40 PM

    darkstar-first get all the facts before trying to voice your uneducated statements—you do not know that little girl or do you?–she has a very loving family on the exhusband side that is showing her how to live the rightway—-the door of opportunity as you referred to –she has alway chosen door two—didn’t your Mother teach you not to call people names—i do not know who lollypop is but if you could understand what you read you would know what he is talking about

  • By jennipher, March 5, 2013 @ 4:35 PM

    @ “uwannabeme” acj has 2 sides for women. Fgp and fwr. Pretty much every woman in there has a drug problem and are usually there on probation violations for not being able to abstain from drugs and/or committing crimes to keep up their habit. That being said jaysa would not be housed with “killers” it’s not like she was gonna get sent to muncy. If u knew her you would know that she is a menace to society. She committed more crimes while out on bail. So apparently you don’t think jail would help her?? Who cares if it helps her?? She should be punished. But if you had read carefully what I said you would see that the girl needs HELP. LIKE REHAB. Having 8 crimes and theft of a firearm and whatever else is a low level offender??? That makes no sense. And because you are a “corrections officer for 10+ years” you are an expert on heroin addiction and alcoholism?? Doubt it. The ppl she hangs out with on the streets are common criminals anyways. But you’re the expert.

  • By worthingtonman, March 5, 2013 @ 5:11 PM

    @uwannabeme

    Me get with it? You get with it! I never mentioned beating or dragging them around. I said I said make it painful such as no cable, no commissary. Lock them in their cells 23 hours a day. My point was sending them home does nothing. Punish them! As crime shows, these new methods are ineffective. Lock them up. Make them miserable, as it was intended to be. My wife was a corrections officer so I know what goes on in jail. And the warden and the committee make it way too easy on the inmates.

  • By UWannaBME, March 6, 2013 @ 4:16 PM

    I respect everyone’s opinions. But to be honest, trying to have an intelligent conversation with anyone that frequents this site is like trying to talk a 21 year old drunk from not driving home from the bar (which there are a lot of around here). And to respond to “wouldn’t be housed with killers”: I’m almost positive that Peggy Jo Conner roamed FGP for about 2.5 years at ACJ. Nope, no killers here…just keep walking.

  • By worthington1987, March 6, 2013 @ 5:47 PM

    I can personally say many things, first she will end up in jail, she has a major problem with authority, second her daughter is with her parents at the same house is her, but she spends NO time with her! Only her ex husband spends time with the child.. I know them both very well! Jaysa had been a close friend, and she is the one who got her ex back on the heroin.. Also yes she got caught shoplifting many places, she even tried asking the friend who was with her to take the blame and her friend was going too!! Though security tapes the friend was proven not guilty. Guess she thought she could help her change just like her family is.. From what I heard they no longer speak. If I were her I wouldn’t either! All I can say is her parent don’t think she has a problem, they just want to blame it all on Heath, they even bought her a vehicle for being so good! Seriously?!? Meanwhile she was at the bar all the time not mention the guys and the fact she was sleeping with a cop.. Huhhh wonder why she didn’t go to jail!! She also worked for 3 local attorneys so everyone at the courthouse knew her! The only people I know who think he shouldn’t be in jail is her family!! The jail guard posting on here is probably her cousin and that’s probably why he feels bad! All I can say is as long as I have known Hereford many yrs, she has always stolen! She has always had a problem with either drugs alcohol or something, and now that she lives with her parents there is no supervision of her with her daughter.. I ran into her after she got out of jail, she told me this..”I have no remorse I only stole off of businesses, and that it wasn’t a problem taking her daughter and step son on drug deals because they had their favorite places to stop on the way home.. ” I am sorry you could’ve have gotten them killed when her husband was shot.. Yeah not everyone knows that.. And it was probably her fault in one way or another.. Heath hasn’t been perfect bit he does have remorse and has apologized and went to rehab and still goes to meeting even though he hasn’t been forced to.. His mother isn’t treating him like he did nothing wrong and buying him whatever he wants! All I can say is she will end up on jail or dead from drugs or some sexually transmitted disease!!

  • By danas0187, March 6, 2013 @ 7:21 PM

    I will say she was one of my beat friends for years… 14 to be exact.. She did need to go to jail for at least a little but, I can say the IPP program is a rough program though..I was the only person to visit her in jail, I went to her hearings took her for her fingerprinting and agreed to keep her on the weekends and help with her daughter.. But she screwed me as we’ll, she has no care for anything or anyone.. We no longer speak because after she got out of jail the first time I took her o butler so i could fill out my paperwork to go back to work at sears..she stole from 3 places with out me knowing! While I was busy with the paper work and watching her daughter..She even asked me to take the blame for her.. All I can say is the truth does and will always come out.. She has always known How to use people for what she needs or wants.. I had quit talkin to her from jan2011 until aug2012, she wouldn’t talk to me when she was using heroin because I had gone to her parents.. They don’t want to admit that she has a problem they would rather blame it on Heath.. He may not be perfect but he tries he apologized to everyone he has hurt and is trying to take responsibility.. He went to the rehab he was ordered to go to as well.. All I can say is I know I have not been perfect but the last straw for me is when I took her and her daughter to butler and she had been stealing the whole time, every time she would go for a smoke she was loading my trunk full, so I couldn’t tell.. Then she tries to tell people around town I stole.. Sorry I didn’t and yes I was charged because she was with me and the stuff was in my car but also through security video they will prove my innocence ( I still haven’t had my preliminary hearing) and yet again her daughter was there! She told me she has no remorse because she only stole from businesses and that it was no problem that she took Natalie and Levi on drug deals because they had their favorite pizza shop and would make a full day of it…meanwhile heath got ahot during a deal gone bad..She has stolen off of me as well and still owes me plenty of money!! And as far as who she was sleeping with to get such a light sentence she was sleeping with 2 cops and offered it to a 3 rd cop.. I do pray she will learn.. But at the same time she thinks she got off easy and it’s true.. For some reason people can’t stand up for what is right in this world anymore!! I will probably have some sort of retaliation for posting this.. So if I am dead in a few days we know who did it!! Also I can bet the jail guard posting is her cousin.. Or one of friends that she screws on a daily basis.. She has also always had her problems drinking, drugs and stealing. She even taught her daughter how to steal.. Don’t get me wrong I hope for her and her daughters sake that she does do well an get totally clean (meaning no alcohol) and stay that way. Before she started using she was a great mother.. And good wife.. I pray everyday she does return to the Jaysa that had been my best friend..

  • By Darkstar, March 6, 2013 @ 11:56 PM

    @”rukmini” :
    I am sorry you feel that my statements are “uneducated”. I am a surviving family member of a drug addict, who had been in and out of Armstrong County jail, several stints in three rehabilitation centers in western PA, and is currently serving 5 years in the PA State Correctional facility (Rockview). I say I am on the surviving side, because what my family member put me, my parents, and extended family members through was terrifying, unbelievably stressful, and life changing for all of us. Having an addict in your family is awful. Please do not condescend to me, and others like me in here, posting our exact experiences and foolishly state that my opinions are uneducated. For what I have experienced with my addict family member is an education that no one should have to endure, ever. I know about the late nigh phone calls from the jail, the family member crying and demanding we bail them out…sitting in the magistrates office, and the courthouse, listening to all the charges being read…wondering how in the heck did you ever get to this point…demanding and crying that we attend all court hearings and support them all the way…had to hear them throw tantrums, and literally threaten our lives if we ever cut off support. Yeah, crazy isn’t it? Stressful to the point that you start to practice TOUGH LOVE, and STOP giving a darn so much for them and start taking care of yourself instead…yes, I have been there… But you say I am “uneducated” in this matter….let me tell you something…this Jaysa got off pretty much with a slap on the wrist. All you have to do is look at the court papers to see her charges, and what she was facing. She has caught a major, major break with Judges Panchik and Valasek…if this woman doesn’t get her act together and stay out of trouble now, she WILL end up in prison, OR DEAD. you don’t like that I say what I say here? No skin off my teeth. Who I feel sorry for is that little girl. I feel more for her than this grown adult woman who is her mother, choosing to stay in trouble, and choosing the path she is on. That to me is unfair.

  • By kmp21, March 7, 2013 @ 10:36 AM

    I have read everyones’ post about Jaysa E. Kuntz. I feel very strongly when I say this. Im not writing to stir up any crap with anybody on this site but to bring awareness to you all the severity of the situation. I PERSONALLY know Jaysa’s daughter and Heath’s first son LEVI. I have seen, heard, and witness the ABUSE these 2 have caused on such innocent children. I myself have reported to the police MULTIPLE times the crimes a 5 year old boy has BEEN APART OF, the drug dealers Heath’s own son knoes by name. The thing that shocks the hell outta me is how CYS did nothing for Levi or Natalie, or how a judge can let a repeat offender grant custody rights to them. I know Levi’s mother and its not Jaysa by far, she has fought for Levi for over a year to give Levi time to heal from this and NOBODY not one person in Armstrong County has even attempted to help protect her son, but the opposite they have granted him a hearing to allow him to see his son,mind blowing. I have heard Levi explain to me how his father INJECTED HERION in Natalies room on Garfield street. and to see these 2 walk around Kittanning like they did nothing wrong infuriates me to the core. Levi will be forced to see his father when he clearly has stated to multiply teachers, consulers, and friends that he does not consider his dad his real dad. I ask that if you have anything to say here, Stand up for these children because Armstrong county IS NOT. They have done nothing but allowed trauma to these children to continue. I say lock them up, both of them, give these children time to heal, to become emotionally stable, and for goodness sake give these 2 some time to sit all alone day in and day out and realize there own children do not want to be around them. Im sick of watching these poor kids fall apart because our system has failed them. Somebody wake up and advocate for these kids…and protect yours! and can somebody please tell me how child endangerment charges…not 1 charge or 2, but more than 5 have not be pressed upon these 2…does Levi’s testimony not count?

    HEY kmp—-your statement was uncalled for—you do not write a article like that and put it on open letter–you have opened yourself up for a big problem—even if this is true you have deeply hurt this family—mostly his MOTHER–his MOTHER has nothing to do with these article but people like you have put the whole family on the front page—you have left your mouth get away from you-no one and i repeat no one has posted a article here that was that hateful—if you have not done anything in your life to cause heart ache to your love ones do not throw any stone–remember everyone has a door in their life that they do not want opened—you are not the one to judge the judgement is in a higher power—i think this whole matter has gone to a hateful place on comments

    darkstar—your family is your family in good and bad times—blood is blood—no one turns family down or walks away from family and that mean walking away from loves ones—when i reply to you i was talking about that little girl–i just pray that people will let this little girl out of this whole thing—everyone seem happy to involve a smallchild and no one really knows the truth around her and i am just not writing to hear myself

    @”rukmini”:

    It is people like you, with the attitude you currently have, that scare the daylights out of me. It shows the direction our country is headed in, and the moral compass that people lack. And you are just fine with blaming everyone else for problems that you have created yourself, instead of stepping up and taking responsibility. You come in here and whine about how this is all not fair, and that no one knows this girl and how everyone posting their comments needs to get a life, and it’s not fair, and oh I know the family, yadda yadda yadda…: big deal. The truth hurts. Time to put on your big-boy and big girl pants and deal with it.

    darkstar—-first of all i blame no one because i have no problems in this area—i do not know what you read or should i say understood—i have not whine about nothing—i just stated the facts—i never said for anyone to get a life–no the truth does not hurt if it is the truth–you know her family which side?–i have my big girl pants on and i will not lower myself any more in your world of words

    @”rukmini” —-

    I have only responded to your “world of words”, when you challenged me here, and stated my comments on this matter were “uneducated”. You picked me to challenge, sweetheart. Good luck to you.
