Serious Crime Deserves Serious Punishment

Posted: Updated:

You have to wonder if justice was truly served in Bluefield this week.

Federal Judge David A. Faber sentenced former Beckley Police Department evidence tech Gabriella Brown to probation.  In spite of her pleading guilty to stealing Oxycodone from the evidence room.
Prescription drug abuse plagues Southern West Virginia, yet the person who swipes it from police is given a slap on the wrist?

This was a serious crime that deserved serious punishment.
