Jock Bo Riley Sentenced

A regular Lauderdale County reader was the victim of Jock Bo Riley many months ago. Since that time he's had little assurance that Riley would indeed pay for his crime. Now Riley has been sentenced for a least another of his legal lapses. Riley, accused of attempted robbery in February 2011, was sentenced to serve time in a community corrections program following treatment at a rehabilitation facility. From a local news report:

Jock Bo Riley, 30, 270 Franklin 44, Russellville, pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary and second-degree receiving stolen property on Nov. 30, 2011, and received a 10-year sentence split with a year to serve. According to Franklin County District Attorney Joey Rushing, Riley was given an opportunity to go to a long-term rehab program before he was sentenced for those charges.

The charges Riley originally received stemmed from 2011 incident where a string of criminal activity ultimately led to his arrest by two different agencies. Riley is accused of entering an occupied residence on East Avenue in Russellville during the early morning hours of Feb. 2, 2011. After Riley was confronted by the residents, officials said he demanded money and made a gesture to suggest he was armed. Reports indicate Riley fled the scene a few moments later without obtaining any money or property from the residence.

Riley was caught several blocks from the scene of the incident by night shift officers and was later identified by the residents as the man who had entered their home demanding money, officials said. According to reports, Riley was also found in possession of 2002 Chevrolet Corvette that had been reported stolen from Florence several days earlier and was turned over to the Florence Police Department before being returned to Franklin County. After he serves his Community Corrections sentence, Rushing said Riley will also receive five years probation.

A car enthusiast once visited the old Anderson's Bookland downtown. Not finding what he wanted, he asked the clerk if they carried Vette Views. He was quite confused for several seconds when the clerk replied, "No, but we have Dog Fancy and Cat Fancy."


It's been reported that at least one of the ten unacquired properties in the Brandon Block sits in the middle of the proposed new construction. Can one resistant homeowner hold up the new RegionalCare hospital? CEO Russell Pigg has stated all property must be acquired by October 1st; however, the CON hearings have been postponed until February 2013. Will this affect their timeline as to purchases? What happens if a homeowner should die during this possible delay in construction? Would the heirs be held to the sales contract?

Remember: If it can go wrong, it usually does.
