Yes, She Made Wrong Decisions/Statement from Underwood Camp

First the official statement from Billy Underwood's attorneys:

TUSCUMBIA—Tuscumbia attorney Billy Underwood has been charged with attempting to bribe a prospective juror in a case where that individual never went to the courthouse and a jury was never empaneled. 

“Mr. William Hovater and I are proud to represent Mr. Underwood on a case that I am very surprised has been brought. Mr. Underwood is alleged to have attempted to influence a juror in a case in which he was not an attorney nor would have received a fee,” stated W. Brent Woodall.

Jeff Bowling, an attorney from Franklin County, stated that he has known Underwood for over twenty years and that he is one of the most honest attorneys with whom he has dealt. Cliff Wright, who has practiced law in Lauderdale County for many years, likewise recognizes Underwood to be an honest attorney.

Mr. Woodall, who has prosecuted cases for the Alabama Attorney General’s Office and for the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Alabama, expressed confidence that there will be a good outcome of this case. Mr. Hovater, who has practiced law in Colbert County for over 37 years, is also certain that this case will be resolved in Mr. Underwood’s favor.



We looked at the Facebook page of the woman at the center of a custody battle/lover's quarrel that resulted in the death of Chad Gardner Jr. One of her supporters stated she had always made the right decisions. Has she?

Everyone makes a wrong decision from time to time. This woman would seem to have made at least two huge miscues. First she had four children with a man to whom she was not married, a man who didn't stay with her for whatever reason. Second, she began to date a man who had been to prison not once, not twice, but three times.

Ladies, how many times do we have to tell you? You have a good job and three or four children and you want to date an unemployed man who has been incarcerated three times? What is wrong with this picture?

Yes, this woman has made mistakes. Thompson may be charged with manslaughter, but he could be indicted on a stiffer charge. He was a felon in possession of a handgun and fled the scene of the shooting. If convicted, with three priors, he's looking at a life sentence unless he has someone to shop or an incredibly good defense attorney. 

What was this woman thinking?

    Yes, many women make some serious mistakes and do not use good judgement when it comes to men. The wisest and most mature of us learn from the mistakes we make early on. Once you have children, the learning curve is OVER.
