InTheKnow 1 year, 3 months ago on Lepiane sentenced in embezzlement case

No argument there, Just wanted to point out that no one suffered during the time the money was gone. Also the sentence would have been even lighter - 0 to 90 days - for a first time offender charged by the state rather than the feds.

And just so you know, had she been charged in state court rather than federal court, the standard sentence for a first time offender is 0 - 90 days. And for those of you who have been misinformed by various media reports or personal comment, no inmates suffered the loss of anything because of this theft. Believe me, I am not trying to justify it in any way, and the money should definitely have been repaid, but at no time during the period in question did the Inmate Welfare Fund drop below tens of thousand of dollars. County budget and its expenditures are a matter of public record; ask the County Auditor to confirm the figures before making false allegations.

Sing - or sign? And remember, the money was paid back, so she profited nothing.

InTheKnow 1 year, 8 months ago on Walla Walla Sheriff outlines mission, vision and core values

Your mission, vision and core values are very commendable, Mr. Turner, however they are not new, contrary to your comments at the beginning and conclusion of your article. These points are all addressed in the "Law Enforcement Code of Ethics," which has been the guiding documentation of the core values of the past two Sheriffs (and possibly those before them). They are nothing new. Despite your comments attempting to relay the message that the prior administrations for the Sheriff's Office had no ethics or direction for the staff Sheriff Humphreys, and Sheriff Jackson before him, led the Office with a clear and honorable Mission shared by those who served beneath them. Can you stop with all the inuendo any time soon?
