This is terrible.. I hope for the childrens sake, they'll get her into a program to get her life back..Maybe, just maybe one day this person can get a hold of herself, and be a mother to these kids...

I am sure I'll get blasted for the idea of helping her, instead of just throwing her in a prison, and never give her a chance to help herself..

I fully believe, if there is life, then there is hope

God Bless

I'm no bleeding liberal heart person, but this girl, and probally millions like her need help..

I have no idea how bad it is to get off these drugs, but I know sending her, or people like her to prison/jail is not the answer.. This has been proven time, and time again...

I pray that God will somehow help her, and especially her children, and deliver these people from the stigma that has wrap around our country..

I fully believe that prohibition is not the answer to the problem, but rather it is the problem...

Anyone remember Al Capone?? No one, or law is going to stop people from taking these drugs... I think everyone can agree on that... How about using the money to fight this stuff, and start treating people with addictions??

If, there is no money to be made in the drug trade, then probally there will be less, and less of it in time

God Bless

I know this girl but have not seen her in quite some time. I am sure it did not escape her attention she had 3 kids, it sure as hell doesn't escape mine that I have one, but I work for a living and don't have time on my hands to invent a way of making money illegal or otherwise to spare me from working. I don't draw welfare or food stamps. Life is about choices and she made the wrong one and no matter how many times ppl write in here under different names it does not change she broke the law and endangered those kids lives. Smithville is full of sorry ass ppl who spread their legs to get a kid for a damn check. They want the money but with no responsbility to the children. Al Capone didn't die of drugs.. he died of untreated syphyllis in prison he contracted from a whore he slept with. Life is hard and life is messy so deal with it. People like this is the reason people like me are taxed to death and can't get damn sinus medication or write a damn check without having to just about give blood. So Boo hoo hoo... I don't feel a damn bit sorry for the little know it all or any of these other junkie ass ppl.

You just answered the answer.. If the money was taken out of the business,,then their wouldn't be near as much tax money for the prison's that are over flowing, and more to be built..Meaning, more, and more taxes are coming....

This country is the NO. 1 country in the world, that Demands illicit drugs.. When people demand it, other's will step up, and deliver.. There is no changing this, and the more people, the more activity there is going to be...

A top offical of Mexico, that has retired has begged the u.s. to legalize marijuana... There isn't any law, or enough money to ever knock a dent in it..

I have to agree with the first poster.. This country lost the war on drugs before it was put into prohibition

What does a post about this woman being arrested for all of the charges mentioned above have to do with Scotty Sykes. This post was about her not everyone else who has issues in Smithville.

Read between the lines. I am pointing out to Smithville that it's our own police force, Sheriff's dept and judicial system that is the root to the problem. Just because this woman has all these charges does not mean anything will be done about it. Why should anything be done about it? Look at Scott Sykes. A repeat offender yet they release him and he continues to rob, abuse, hurts innocent people, threatens his mother, his neighbors. I am sorry if my mentioning Scott Sykes as a criminal bothers you. But the fact is the woman and Scott have many things in common including but not limited to both are parents who abuse and neglect their children, are drug users, are drug dealing, have untreated mental illness, are a huge menace to society and both reside in DeKalb county.
glad to be gone

Best smartest thing I ever did was leave that junkie town. You never know about somewhere or something til u see it first hand. Drug central. ..even around the schools.... it is a pitiful excuse for a home and life unless u want to stay high.
