Sounds fishy to me...

Johnny, I have his preliminary hearing on my list of things to cover next week. I will let you know when I know more.

Something doesn't sound right... Did she know a cop?

Johny, I was able to speak with the police chief briefly this morning, and he kindly read me the police report over the phone. Because of the nature of the allegations, I was unable to provide further details because they were of a mature-audience nature. And again: Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and we will see what happens when he goes before the district judge, who will consider the charges. I will let you know how that turns out. In the meantime, if I may be of any further assistance, give me a call anytime at 724-510-5659.
