Thank you for your input. +12 Vote up Vote down Sumner Citizen · 360 weeks ago Sounds like a pretty small sentence for damaging so many lives. Anyone who makes or sells meth is a killer just as if they were using a gun or knife. These people should serve a way more severe sentence.

Report Reply 0 replies · active 360 weeks ago -3 Vote up Vote down Vigilanty Justice · 360 weeks ago We have had about 5 or more deaths in the Wellington area because of HEROIN but yet these DEALERS only get 2 1/2 to 3 years sentences…………. KERWIN I am calling you out on this crap because you ran on a platform you were going to get tough on drugs. Just maybe we need to RECALL Kerwin and put in someone that will prosecute to the fullest extent.

They are the lowest forms of life. Now when it comes to marijuana I have no problem with being given a $10 fine and let go.

He had to agree with the sentencing of the offenders. It would never go over lightly if I was elected county prosecutor. Report Reply 1 reply · active 360 weeks ago +5 Vote up Vote down Hmmm….. · 360 weeks ago These sentences do seem light. I’m sorry to say I have a family member who resides in up-state Kansas (Lansing). He was a first time offender for conspiracy to manufacture and pled down to 7yrs. Let me just say that I’m glad for every day that he is there, because it is one more day that he is not out killing himself or hurting another. I am glad that at least something is being done to clean up Wellington. Doesn’t the saying go Rome wasn’t built in a day?
