Amy Fernandez sentenced to 12 months in prison

February 29, 2012

Amy Fernandez will be facing time in prison.
In U.S. Federal Court on Wednesday afternoon, she received a sentence of 12 months in prison with three years of supervised release to follow. The sentence was issued by Judge Mary Lou Robinson.
On Monday, Nov. 21, 2011, she pleaded guilty for one account of evading the reporting requirements and the regulations issued thereunder, structure, attempt to structure, and attempted to assist in structuring currency transactions with one or more domestic financial institutions. She was accused of purchasing 39 cashier's checks with United States currency in amounts of $3,000 or less pertaining to the structuring.
Fernandez issued a statement to the court, saying that she was a mother of two sons and an upstanding citizen.
“I feel that I am no harm or threat to the community,” she said.
She will have to undergo an assessment once released and must report to a probation office within 72 hours of being released. She will not be allowed to open any lines of credit or have credit card accounts while on probation.
Her lawyer said the court should consider that Fernandez has no prior criminal history and has never been in a court of law before. She and lawyer both said they feel she has been economically punished. It was also stated that she has been cooperative in making the forfeiture payments that have been issued to her up to this point.
In February, the court announced that Fernandez would be required to pay $99,950 to the government after her sentencing.
Fernandez, along with Francisco “Frank” Fernandez, Aaron Fernandez, Jose Luis Fernandez, Jr., and Thomas Salazar, were taken into custody on October 27, 2011 and were incarcerated in the Randall County Jail. The other four have pleaded guilty to drug offenses. Jose Fernandez was charged with prohibition of illegal gambling business. Francisco Fernandez was also charged with one count of conspiracy to commit a drug offense. All four are still awaiting sentencing.

frank's business

I have been doing business with frank for over 30 years and have been very well pleased with his work as he always did a good job for a fair price. He started his business on a shoestring and made a go of it. I am sure he regrets letting drugs get in the way of business but every time one of his staff came to a job for me or my family even if they didn't speak very good English, they were always polite and did the job quickly and in a professional manner. He just used poor judgement in letting drugs ruin a good business as he was a good businessman in his dealings and work he provided here and the surrounding area. I never had any dealings with Amy but Frank was very polite and business like in dealing with me over the years and was honest in his floor covering business and offered a fair price for his work. I for one will miss his business because he and his employees did such a good job and took pride in their work. I never had a complaint against him or any employee in which they carried out their tasks in flooring .After all this is over maybe he can begin again and use better judgement in his business dealings . You always can pick yourself up after you fall and start over,that's just the way it works and i hope that Frank will do it again. God forgives us all for the wrong things we have done and we all have done things in the past that we regret in doing. A wise man once said ''everybody's guilty of something'' so frank will be forgiven and may he overcome his mistakes and begin again........i hope so as Borger needs more businesses to succeed so we can thrive as a community.

No matter what they have done, Frank started his business on a shoestring and made a go of it......its sad that drugs became a part of it, but as a businessman he was very good. His work was very good and carried a fair price.....i have used the business for over 30 years and he did a great job on all the homes i have owned including my family's and our business.His workers were always polite even if they didn't speak very good English and the work was very good quality.I will miss their business in Borger but there will be someone else to lay carpet and do tile flooring,but his work still is a tribute to the way he has done business as a professional and he is one of many people in borger that have started a business from nothing and made a go of it. I am sure he is sorry for letting drugs get in the way of his sight of running a business, but for all that is bad something good will come out of this.....that is how it works. Thank you Frank for all the beautiful flooring you have done for us in these past years and when you get out keep your head up and try again the legal way and you will make it again i am sure of this.

Amy's Letter to the Editor?

Does anyone know if Amy Fernandez letter to the editor is available online somewhere? I don't remember seeing it, and would really enjoy reading it now. Can someone from the Borger News Herald answer this?

Fernandez Drug Bust Sentence

March 8, 2012 by The Lone Ranger (not verified), 2 years 29 weeks ago
Comment: 1035

Well, Judge Mary Lou Robinson needs to be un-appointed, voted out of office, or a election recall. Period. In no way was this justice for the felony drug dealers, or anyone who is a citizen in Hutchinson County. I know this may have been Amy's first felony offense, and the 1st Strike on her felony record, but I think in the future her 2nd Strike felony offense record is gonna get her where it takes that smurk off her face for awhile.

stick to the topic people..how did we get off on cheetos, carbs, grammer, miss-spelled words, people trying to prove fernandez clan innocent..Ooops! lol well, everyone deserves their own opinion about the case, but remember there are always 2 sides to every story...oh, and the TRUTH! i do think they set theirselves up for this fall from grace, but who am i to judge? just sit back and let the story unfold and the truth will eventually come out..it always does at some point. of course the people close to them are going to try to defend them, just hope it doesn't come back to bit them in the butt later. MAKE sure your FRIENDS are worth the crap you have to endure for them..should you constantly have to stick up for them and justify their behavior? lay off the morgan girl, she is young and doesn't know any better, she'll learn! maybe the hard way, but she will.

No Sympathy here!

March 7, 2012 by FabulousVida. (not verified), 2 years 29 weeks ago
Comment: 1029

I believe the reason no one is sympathizing for Amy nor her family is because of the fact she is still walking around like the arrogant witch she has and always will be! "Treat others the way you want to be treated" deffinantly came into play with this whole incident, everyone is being hateful because that is Excactly how they are!!! Her putting the big banners on the store makes her look Iggnorant and ridiculous oh wait nothing has changed clearly(;
On another note all the comments defending her are coming from her family apparently, when did they start to claim you? The whole town knows at one point they did not claim any of their "family" and all of a sudden they do! Haha what a joke this family is to society she is receivng far
Less than she deserved unfortunately and we will have to put up with her ignorance for everrr!
I think instead of her getting a year in jail she should just get slapped that would probably make the town smile and stop talking smack(:

Morgon no matter what you say

Comment: 1028

Morgon no matter what you say about Frank and Amy, these people will never give up on saying negative things about them. Its people like sorryboutcha, that will never give up, if it's something positive they have to put in their negativity. I suppose it makes them feel better, who knows. Negative people have a lot of issues going on in their lives so in order to feel better they must send that negativity towards others. I will end this with Matthew 5:44 love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

Fair Game............

March 7, 2012 by tx_girl (not verified), 2 years 29 weeks ago
Comment: 1027

Ok, there are many people who want to tell others to be quiet about this and not to judge others. Well for those who say this, first of all the Fernandez family pled guilty..............obviously they did the crimes that they are charged with. Second, if it's in the news, then it is public knowledge, therefore it is fair game for people to talk about.

I personally believe that Amy is getting what she deserves, although I believe that she could have gotten a longer sentence. This is the woman who looked down upon so many people, the woman who liked to tell others that they were unwelcome in her store because of their weight, social status, or any other reason she could find to look down her nose upon others. So Morgon, please do not try to tell me what a great person Amy Fernandez is, because I know better. Any person who would involve their child in illegal activites is not a caring parent, Christian, or upstanding citizen either.

Furthermore, just from reading some of the comments on this page, I have come to the conclusion that AMY is probably the one doing some of the writing in defense to herself. So if you Amy are reading this, not many believe that you are being "economically punished"....you are getting what you deserve! You did the crime, now it's time to do the time. Enjoy your 365 vacation, but just a little FYI...that arrogant "the world better bow to me" attitude will get you no where behind bars. And just remember, KARMA came back on you for the wrongs that you have done to others.

Alright u got to me...

I do believe there will be plenty of comments left over for the article about Frank! Probably more than we have to say about Amy. Any man who could throw his brothers under the bus, only to attempt to get a lighter sentence deserves to know what the community thinks about him.

Grace

March 7, 2012 by sorryboutcha (not verified), 2 years 29 weeks ago
Comment: 1024

Have you ever stopped to think they are not receiving GRACE because they never gave it? Have you ever stop to think that what/why people say these things because they too have been hurt by this or by the family. Honestly, Morgon, would their life be any different if they had not been caught? I believe in God with all my heart and soul!I also believe in his MERCY, FORGIVENESS and GRACE, and I also believe that I cannot go one day without HIM, and I also believe in Galatians 6:7-8: "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." For I know everyone of my sins, I have reaped! Maybe in God's plan, that not you, nor I, nor the community of Borger knows, they will end the better, wiser and closer to GOD! Please do not lecture me about GOD"s GRACE, I already know it!

Comment: 1023

My name is Morgon Forrest, unlike most of you I am not afraid to say my name. I have you know that for the past 4 months I ignored this website because I haven't wanted to see all the hateful comments that the majority of you have left. I have constantly turned my cheek and prayed for those who have continuously persecuted people I love. I can't change your opinions or thoughts about Amy but I have you to know that she has is like a mom to me and when you all say cruel things about her it not only hurts her heart but it hurts so many other hearts as well. Sleepless nights, countless tears, and unimaginable pain is enough for all of us to bear without all of this cruelty! I know that if Jesus was walking on earth right now he would be telling every single one of you to cast the first stone. And instead of persecuting them he would be reaching out to them. I pray that someday you all understand the concept of mercy and grace. I can't imagine getting through this life without a good understanding of both of these. As a 25 year
Old  I have made countless mistakes and I sin daily, but it's his mercy and grace that gets me through the day.  If you don't extend grace and mercy trust me when you or your children need it, it won't be extended to you. I don't wish that upon you but I know it's the way it works. I could go on and on and wish that I could change your hateful hearts but I can't, most of you will continue to say hateful things. When you start to say something think about this, "what If it was your mom, daughter, sister, or best friend?" Would you want hateful things said about them? So here's the deal you can go ahead and make your ugly comments and say ugly things back to me but what you say doesn't matter and I'm not going to argue I'm simply stating the truth about who you all are hurting. I know the truth, my family knows, and our gracious God knows! I usually am very passive and I don't say anything but gosh I am just sick and tired of the cruelty! It's getting out of hand! I love the lord and I will say he has used me in so many awesome ways in this small town, ways that many of you don't know about,  but all of your cruelty and hatefulness is making it hard to stay in a community like this. Thank you to those who have prayed and loved on all of us, you guys are amazing and such blessings!

Morgan, I want you to know that I understand what you're saying. But please try to understand the frustration of the people of this town. Not only did Frank & Amy use their power to destroy the lives of many, they then used their wealth to put themselves above others. And Amy, in particular, has a reputation for being arrogant toward many, many people in this town. As much as you may love her, she isn't liked by an awful lot of people for the way she's treated people in the past.

But what gets most of the people of this community upset is how they professed to the world their innocence, then ended up pleading guilty, and now want to claim how wholesome a family they are.

As much as I would love for all of this to go away, it won't until that family admits what they did to this community, apologizes for it, and acts as if they are sincerely sorry. I don't see any of that coming from them. And to be honest, I don't believe that's in Amy's nature to do that.

I do hope their extended family is able to get past this eventually, but please know that they brought this on upon themselves, and they (and you) are suffering the consequences.

The people of Borger are good, and the anger will eventually go away. It's all part of the healing process. But it's going to take some time.

well said carrottop

very well put. i agree, it's the whole way they proclaimed their innocence and mocked borger,tx by childish antics and letters and etc...i think it's a hard thing for ANYONE to have to EAT their own words, i guess alot more for some who can't stand to be called out.
i just hope it's a true learning experience for them on how NOT to treat others...sorry to burst your bubble but, your sh** stinks like everybody elses!

This is Kendall Fraley. I know what it's like to be slamed in the paper and news for my mistakes. Look we all have an opinion and we all can talk crap on each other for grammar or any other reason. Let me say this. NOTHING good has come of this AS OF YET!!!! I feel in my heart that we all need to pray for the community, the Fernandez family, and those who have been or who are addicted to MONEY or drugs!!! The sad part that I see is just hate from both sides of the line in this story. Lets show the enemy that God is gonna make water into wine from this. I just pray right now that God you would bring great revelation to all of Borger and that you be with the Fernadez family. God let your beautiful light shine over this darkness!!!! amen

Those poor kids of theirs. can you imagine having to call Frank and Amy Mom and Dad. HOW EMBARRASSING! Everyone knows how vocal those 2 were when it came to them having nothing to do with any criminal activities. That was until they admitted to being GUILTY. They tried to fool everyone by throwing drug money around. Many of their friends and employees did stand up for them. But if your that close to The Fernandez Felons and can't see whats really going on your either too stupid or your in on it. Thats why they kept you around. Either way they didn't fool most of Borger. Everyone knew it was just a matter of time.

So many things!

Comment: 1002

There are so many comments I could make, but let me start off with the obvious! If you are going to tell someone off, please check your grammar! No one can take anyone serious with misspelled words and bad grammar.
I have had personal dealings with this family and I can say with 100% first hand knowlege this family is one of the most arrogant, self entitled, rudest, look down your nose, hateful, family I have ever met! Beleive me I can do my share of bashing and could fill this page up with examples of wrong doings by this family, but I truly beleive I don't have the right to judge because I believe in God and know that what you reap you will sow! They are reaping what they have sown. God bless those who stand by them, but folks they have treated and snubbed their noses at most of the people in this town from teachers, basketball coaches, golf coaches to customers and employees in their stores. This is not here say, this is fact!
The minute the youngest left BHS, they stopped contributing! So please don't lecture me or anyone else how giving they are! Please don't lecture me or anyone else about the goodness of this family who taught their children to break the law and go around asking the question "do you know who my family is? " yes we do, unfortunately!
God Bless the family, they will need it! Unfortunately, they will not learn a lesson it's the loss of money and possessions, but this will not be the last we hear from Amy. She is a survivor, she will rise to the occasion and serve her time and be out in no time, none the wiser, as ever entitled and have her sons open her a credit account and open a business ! She has taught them well, money is the important thing! But you know what? I would much rather be the poorest person than live a lie! God bless you! The only thing Amy wants at the end of her rainbow is a large pot of gold! That sums it up!

So many exclamation marks

Comment: 1030

Where is it written that in order to "tell someone off" one must spell correctly, much less use proper grammer. I do not remember learning that in "telling someone off" 101. I hope the rest of Borger finds the humor in the fact that while you seem to be offended by others spelling and grammer it seems that you missed class the day your 3rd grade teacher went over the proper use of an exclamation mark. 17 times...really? I imagine you screaming at the computer as you type your words, drink your 3 liter diet coke and wonder if cheetos have carbohydrates in them. (Yes, they do.) One last piece of constructive criticism... When you begin your post by stating "No one can take anyone serious with misspelled words..." only to spell the word believe incorrectly four lines later, you lose credibility with your readers. Remember, I before E except after C. Hope this helps. Now go enjoy those cheetos!

For all of you that went into Amy's store and was refused service because of being the wrong size or wrong social status ....your justice rings true.....she can now teach bedazzling classes in prison and try to convince the other inmates that they are not the right size or social status.........Karma....baby...sweet karma!

As far as the bedazzling goes, that's going to be a good thing!! Look at Martha Stewart, she went to prison and showed people that prison wasn't going to bring her down!! She's actually better off now than before!! So Amy, go and do your time and show people that this will not bring you down!! You go and bedazzle, because for every one person that doesn't like you, there's 10 more that do!!!

Comment: 1009

In hindsight, however, celebrations of Martha Stewart's triumphal return may have been premature. "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart" was cancelled after its first season. Her company's relationship with K-Mart foundered in 2009 when sales of her merchandise fell below expectations. Stewart was quoted as blaming K-Mart's parent company, Sears Holdings (SHLD_), for letting the quality of her line deteriorate. However, Sears' representatives shot back that the products were designed and manufactured to her team's specifications and bluntly stated, "we think that Ms. Stewart should accept responsibility for her product." So you gave 10 to 1 odds....oops...can't bet....the booking operation got busted too!

All the people that are on here commenting back and forth need to shut up and mind their own business!! It's ridiculous how you all are so amused and take great pleasure in another's downfall! I just don't understand how people can be so cruel!! We all know that they both plead guilty to this but people act like they're the only ones in this world that have ever plead guilty to something. What about the other ones that are also involved?? Nobody has mentioned any of the other ones involved, why is that?? I'll tell you all why, its because Frank and Amy have a business and of course they're the easier target! Where's the bashing on jr fernandez or aaron fernandez?? If there's going to be bashing might as well bash everyone don't you all think?? Just saying that everyone is so quick to talk crap on just frank and amy when they're not the only ones involved in this whole thing!! So before you all decide to post something else on here since I'm sure someone else will, make sure and include EVERYONE!!!

frank & amy made themselves the easy target. you can only snub people and act as if everyone is beneath you or not worthy of your time and/or services for so long before it bites you back. i agree, bashing and name calling isn't going to do a lick of good, it's true they are guilt (they plead)and they will pay their debit to society for the crimes they've commited, and guess what people...the world will keep turning and life will go on, this is all just temporary. it's what they decide to do with the lessons (we hope) they learn in the big house when they get out. none of us really know what happened except THEM! and as for draggin the other people involved in this mess into the conversations...what good is that gonna do, 2 wrongs don't make a right moron, maybe thats how you work, but nothing will be gained, im SURE they are suffering and dealing with pain that you know nothing about, it's just not being broadcasted on here. they are getting their fair share of ridicule in other ways. everyone of us are sinners, just some are less fortunate..it's because of their 'showboating'& 'holier than thou' attitudes that they are getting picked apart for their sins, has nothing to do with them owning a business TARD! have you ever heard that there is a BIG differance between having confidence and being down right arrogant?
IT'S THE WAY THEY HAVE HANDLED THE SITUATION THAT DEFINES PEOPLE'S VIEWS AND COMMENTS TOWARDS THEM...they show no remorse, just display i can get away with what i want demeanor, it comes across to others as SMUG & a bit AUDACIOUS.

Yes Amy has committed a crime and should be punished, but it is not for the reason that you morons think. Basically it is for not claiming taxes on the money orders!!! All money was accounted for you idiots!!!! We all know how many of you folks don't claim the cash either!! It takes a small minded person to talk so much crapk on someone you don't even know just because they have been more successful that YOU!!!! If Frank did what he did or not you DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT to judge him or Amy....ISNT THAT GOD'S JOB!!!! I am a part of this family and it is a shame to have to read the hateful things you people say. These are FANTASTIC FOLKS and they gave a lot to the community. To most of you people your kids came into the store and asked to donations....90% of the time they gave money. I saw it time and time again. Now to you PUNISHMENT...you have no clue what you are talking about and it takes a real person to say all that crap and bring children into it. I wish I knew who you were!!! IT takes a REAL MEN or WOMEN to talk without there real name. Yeah the boys were TOP DAWGS because they deserved it...T was a basketball star and Puddin excelled at everything!!!! So all I have to you say to is GOOD DAY SIR!!!! MR. DB. It is true that someone has to be buying the drugs!!!! Don't just blame the pushers!!!! I feel that all you people have nothing else to do but blog hateful things about others!!! This family has been crushed from what has happened. I did live there a couple of years ago and all i noticed is all the borger morons come up with so many rumors!!! you idiots that drive by or called the store for stupid crap!!! All the looks you would give them. Personally some of the people in borger are great folks but majority of you people are still have the mentality of high schooler.

TO THE FERNANDEZ FAMILY don't let the morons get you down. You know who is on you side and we all LOVE YOU no matter what!!! Let the dumb people talk all the crap they want. AMY dust you shoulder off!!! LOL.

It is quite comical that  you would say "I wish I knew who you were!!! IT takes a REAL MEN or WOMEN to talk without there real name." and yet omit yours. You stated, "If Frank did what he did or not you DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT to judge him or Amy". The fact of the matter is that they both pled guilty, Frank "admitted to supplying narcotics to street-level dealers", and I can say with 100% factual confidence that Amy has been structuring money orders AT LEAST since 2006 when I worked for one of the Borger banks. The fact that you bring God into the conversation yet continuously call people idiots, morons, and dumb throughout the entire comment is further amusing. Frank and Amy did give a lot to the kids of the community, but pedophiles often lure their victims in with nice gestures and gifts also. Are pedophiles "Fantastic Folks" too? Regardless of your love, loyalty and respect for Frank and Amy, the fact of the matter is that they were not so nice to a lot of people. You know one side of them, a lot of people know something completely different. It is unfortunate that so many people and your family…"has been crushed from what has happened." but the community did not do this to Frank and Amy. Frank and Amy did this to their selves, to their family and to their community! Not to mention the negative impact their actions have had on countless others. Frank and Amy are grown, adults and everyone knows if you break the law you have to suffer the consequences. They took that chance. They broke a lot of hearts, homes, and souls, in the process. Now they must suffer the consequences of what they did. That's now judging. That's straight biblical. "As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble shall reap it." Job 4:8

I would like to get in contact with "What'sUp", you seem to know a lot about this family. My aunt was the lady that was murder. I would like to know more about the drug deal the night before. There are so many missing pieces. Just hard for us to understand. We hold bars accountable if the serve a drunk and they get behind the wheel. Maybe their are more people that are a part of this.

Fernandez contributions to the community

There is a reason that drug dealers, gang members etc. are active in the community. The reasoning is to be invisible by being visible, they live in the nice part of town, give to charitable organizations and even belong to the local Chamber of Commerce. Any of this sound familiar? That is the way organized crime exists in the neighborhoods, they become part of the community. Amy Fernandez was a member of the esteemed Borger Chamber of Commerce and they gave to many organizations. So....how about we invite any organized crime into our neighborhood that will buy a couple of football helments? That should make Borger a better place to live.

Also, to Amy's mother saying "they just fell in with the wrong crowd", tell you what, Frank and Amy ARE the wrong crowd. Amy and Frank are morally bankrupt, we should be so lucky as to see their finances in the same condition.

Punishment??

I can not believe the people of his town who CONTINUE to support he poor Fernandez DRUG PUSHERS! Those people should go sit with the children who have. Even remove from heir homes because their parents are strung out on drugs. They should be made to wipe and count the tears of the mothers watching their children sink deeper into drug abuse, then the can hold the hand of a child fighting cancer ALONE because Amy 's family made SURE she stayed addicted! The 90 yr. old brutally murdered because Frank deliver hose drugs he night before! WHEN YOU. AN EXPLAIN TO THESE FAMILIES WHY you feel so sorry for poor pitiful AMY, then say your prayers drugs don't strike your family! GREED RULED THESE PEOPLE! The o ly gave to the community the football gear so they could be PRAISED at how wonderful they are, and their boys could be TOP DAWGS!! They don't a FLIP about who they hurt! She sent out letters asking people to send letters to a FEDRAL judge ! who would send a letter to a judge saying they support a criminal drug pusher! Even her after ADMITTING GUILTY 39 times, she considers herself UPSTANDING! Wake up PEOPLE! She does NOT see any wrong in what she has done. She USED HER KIDS TO COMMIT A FELONY!! She must not care about heir future either, yet sh e tries to use them to help her out of prison!! She has stated in town "what good will it do to send me to prison? How will that help anyone!" well Amy, maybe it will bring YOU BACK TO REALITY where the rest of us live ( except your Koop-aide drinking groupies). Hey does anyone know the differen e between a dirty MEAN scary drug dealer sneekimg around in the alley selling drugs and a Fernandez? NOT A DA&$ THING!! Next time you people thumb your noses at the trash standing g in line beside you at the store, remember , AMY IS NO DIFFERENT! If your house is broken into by someone looki my for drugs, maybe you will have less sympathy for the devil! Now, go say your prayers and drink that Koop-aide!

It sounds like you may know a whole lot about this family. The lady that was killed was my aunt. I wished I could make contact with you and you could tell me more about the selling of the drugs the night before. There are so many pieces missing. Just don't understand. I have read the pro and cons of this court case. Then if this Frank sold drugs to this murderer the night before than his hands are dirty too. You know we hold bars accountable if they serve a drunk and kills a person. We should be able to hold these people. One year is not enough.

The Fernandez couldn't sell if they did not have customers. If your kids were buying drugs, then I ask where are the parenting skills and being up in your kids business. Don't just blame the seller, it takes a buyer too. It is a known fact many people find ways of dodging taxes and reporting income! Get Real Borger!

I am very concerned with the idiocy of your comment. You, need to get real! You are seriously condoning these sleaze balls SELLING DRUGS TO KIDS AND ADULTS? I hope that you are young... that would explain your ignorance... I hope that as you get older, you will get wiser and I hope that you NEVER HAVE TO WATCH A LOVED ONE SINK INTO THE HELL THAT IS DRUG ABUSE... I HOPE YOU NEVER HAVE TO BURY A CHILD OR OTHER FAMILY MEMBER THAT IS HOOKED..... I hope you never have to hold someone that you love and watch them go through the horrendous effects of drug use. Amy and Frank knew exactly what they were selling and they know exactly how to sell that poison.. The have cheated several people in this town out of money...but that is the least of the damage they have done. DEATH!! IS THAT REAL ENOUGH FOR YOU? Dodging taxes and not reporting income? Perhaps that is your forte' . Wow, talk about throwing something up out of left field... ohhhhh... look over here!! Don't look at that real problem... You get real... after you get your head out of their butts!

Hey this is to the moron who said she was an upstanding citizen. BS I am a mother too and I don't want Amy and her family selling drugs to kids. Upstanding citizens don't launder her husband's drug money. Wake up. The judge should have given her 20yrs.
