Now The Rest of...

The Reflector is now following the not so proud tradition of the Register, how many times can we rehash the same topics?

I'm wondering how many heroin dealers will be going to jail now or will it be the same old story of them getting a slap on the wrist and turned back out? Time will tell

You do realize that heroin dealers are felons and are adjudicated at the Huron County Common Pleas Court, with Judge Conway, not at Norwalk Municipal Court which deals with misdemeanors.

although I am thankful to Judge Ridge for his many years of service. I am also glad to see new "blood" in there.. hopefully this Judge will be tough on crime, and use his power and judgement to punish criminals to the extent that the law allows, and possibly by doing that will use that as a deterrent to other criminals who this there is a future in crime..
