CHILDERS RACKS UP 17 CHARGES DURING ARREST...

LAWRENCE COUNTY ARREST LIST - JULY 25-AUGUST 6, 2018

AUGUST 6, 2018 - written by WADE QUEEN


In the 12 day period from 6:00 P.M. July 25 thru to 6:00 P.M., August 6, there were at least 141 individuals who were arrested and were brought to be lodged at the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center in Paintsville, Kentucky. Out of those 141, only 8 of those arrested were from Lawrence County. Another Lawrence County resident were arrested in Martin County

That is the correct right numbers you are reading; Just 8 out 141 in the last 12 days. We got eight. Our neighboring 3 counties who use the BSRDC (but also a couple other neighboring counties who are not official board members of the regional jail) brought in 133 arrest suspects to be booked as inmates.

As for our 8 taken into custody, one was a guilty plea weekender, and another arrested person, what charges they were for was not given and are therefore unknown.

To give the previous arrest report as a comparison; in the 10 day period from 12:01 A.M. July 15 thru to 6:00 P.M., July 25, there were at least 115 individuals who were arrested and were brought to be lodged at the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center in Paintsville, Kentucky. Out of those 115 or so, 15 of those arrested were from Lawrence County. Another 5 Lawrence County resident were arrested elsewhere (2 in Johnson County. 2 in Martin County

While still very overcrowded, the number of individuals who were lodged at the BSRDC went to its lowest numbers since mid-December 2017, as the inmate count got down to 301 as of 11:00 P.M. Monday August 6. That is way better than it was a couple of months ago when it was at a record peak of nearly 360; for a facility that as built for a designated maximum capacity of 225.

It is the responsibility of the sheriff to arrest drug dealers and users. If there’s no arrest to put pressure on them they’ll keep doing the same thing in the same house. Whether Preston does nothing at all the sheriff should still be arresting them. SMH NO LEADERSHIP Quoting Tiredofit:

I’d like to know where all of the drug arrests are? I mean like there is one in house treatment center and one that they can walk into to get their fix. All I see is three drug arrests. We have no leadership in the sheriffs office. It’s disgraceful. They are given tips on the drug dealers so why isn’t sheriff Garrett doing anything? Him retiring is the next best thing to Wheeler losing the election.


Based on judge Preston's horrific track record for lenient sentencing you can't really blame the authorities. Its been virtually a waste of time, resources, and tax payer money arresting these people who go before this judge.

Would the editor please do an article on the incompetence of Judge Preston so everyone can voice their displeasure in his limp wristed judicial punishment? This is truly pathetic our law enforcement risk their lives for Preston to turn them loose.

I have read several articles where Childers had been arrested, please explain mr. Judge how he is walking the streets. This is the second article that I have read that the main commentary was about his criminal record. He has been on the arrest list countless times. What is going on in Lawrence County?
