New prosecutor charges 33 people, some in cases dating back to 2008
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Jan. 12, 2011) — Pulaski County Prosecutor Kevin Hillman announced Wednesday that 33 people were charged with crimes in the past week. Some people named on this list may not yet have appeared before a judge for a preliminary hearing at which they will have the opportunity to plead guilty or innocent to the charges. Many of the cases involve old incidents, in some case dating back more than two years. The oldest case involves a June 2008 forgery investigated by St. Robert police; other old cases include two drug cases dating back to October 2009 investigated by Dixon police and two felony weapons charges dating back to the same month investigated by Crocker police. Seven other charges from 2010 involve incidents from October or earlier. The list also includes nine undated bad check charges against seven different people and three criminal nonsupport charges against different people, all also undated.

You have to be careful with over-eager Prosecuting Attorneys. Some just like to prosecute as many as they can, w/o regard to whether they are guilty or not. When a PA prosecutes, the judge usually falls in their favor and tends not to listen to both sides.

Perhaps because it hasz been disposed of.  Fact, eveyone is entitled to post on this board.  Fact one opinion is good as the next.  Fact, you have no iota of an idea how many people were not prosecuted due to ineptitude and apathy by the former prosecutor.   Fact, Nanna has the right idea with the way to deal with your high and mighty attitude.  Fact, if you have an opinion, let me know so I can let you know what that opinion is.  Hi, if you fail to agree with MY oipinion, then you are WRONG.  Or might you be Winstion in disguise?

and my point to her or him is did kevin file 1,111 cases this week?  If not then her opinion isnt fact and shes just bad mouthing someone for no other reason than she doesnt like hooper, which probably isnt wise anymore considering shes not a public official.

NOthing wrong with criticizing her lackluster performance while she was in office.  At 33 cases per week, that is 1716 cases and not including change of venue cases.  your next fact?

Hi, y o uhave no facts to back you up.  At the rate he is going, he can have 1716  cases this year not including change of venue.  So let's just say he is on track to go well beyond the previous prosecutor.  So curb the ignorance and the bluster.  It does not become you.  My previous was sarcasm and you seem to not be able to recognize that.  Is ignorance really bliss?  Please let us know.

Now your just adding stuff to the argument to disagree with me.  Nowhere did she or he ever say is on pace to file more.  In case you didnt get the internet usage memo waaaay back in the 90's, sarcasm on the internet is not easily recognizable.

I can assure you he is not as you described "over-eager". He is thorough and complete and will file charges in accordance to the law.

Oh i have no idea about that.... Why are you so concerned with case number 1 anyway?  Does it involve someone you know or you?  If you call the office I'm sure that your questions will be answered.

I just don't care for Prosecuting Attorneys who prosecute anyone they can, just so their numbers are up. I do not know if this is the case, but I certainly hope not.

That doesn't make sense.  "anyone they can" wouldn't that mean, anyone who is accused of committing a crime?  I don't know much about the legal process, but I do believe that all the people who are charged, are believed to have committed a crime.  If you are opposed to people who are accused of crimes being taken to court to prove their innocence or to be proven guilty, what do you think we should do with them?

I thought that is what we elected the prosecutor to do, get the people off the streets who have committed a crime.  The only way to do that, is to take them to court to prove they committed the crime.
When I was young, I wanted to be older.  This is not what I expected!

I do.  He was my neighbor and I have more insight about him than most here.  He is taking up the job at hand and cleaning up the mess left by the previous person in office.  And he is very meticulous about his job.  He will not prosecute just to get numbers up.  He will and does follow the law.
