My name is Roger W. Henderson. I am writing this because twice now in the past week-and-a-half I have seen two drug dealers get a smack on the hand for selling drugs instead of being sent to prison where they truly belong.
They are selling poison to our kids, mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters, and are a leading problem that leads to more serious crime in our communities.
They slowly kill people and rob them of their lives. But do they get prison sentences? No, they get 6 months, and 20 days respectively, in the county jail with work release privileges.
This really gets under my skin deep. I served four years in the Wisconsin Department Of Corrections (prison) for owing my ex-girlfriend a little over $9,000 in child support, which cost the taxpayers almost $200,000.
Plus, I have been on extended supervision and parole since my release in March of 2007, and when I thought I was done with all the paper, I get notified that I had 64 months of consecutive probation.
I have been paying my child support since my release. I have learned my lesson the first time being locked up, believe me.
I do not think the Sauk County District Attorney’s Office, nor the Sauk County Courts, are very fair with the way they do their work.
I respect the judges and the tough job they were appointed to do, but the district attorney’s office is leaning toward being crooked, if they are going to go to the extremes of pushing cruel, and unusual punishment for a person owing child support, but will let drug dealers walk free after basically getting a nothing sentence.
I think it is time the community stood up for their rights, and got the people who are letting drug dealers walk free, out of office.
Child support, I get a lengthy sentence that still is not done even after four years in state prison, and almost three years of paper.
I really am starting to hate this state, and what the courts and public officers stand for ... this goes all the way to Madison and the (baloney) laws they are passing.
I think I will also submit this to The Washington Post
This will make for some good news statewide: If you want to sell drugs and get away with it come to Baraboo. What a message to send to all the other drug dealers out there, huh.
But if you owe child support, better stay away, you will get a life sentence, especially with the D.A. we have now. Beware all child support owers — the D.A. is a woman.
Yet my fiancée has an ex-husband of hers who owes her dang near $20,000 and the Sauk County Child Support does nothing to push to get her child support owed to her. Fair and equal enforcement of your laws to suit the election you may be running in at the given time.
It must have been an election year in 2003-04 when I was given my sentence?
