St. George woman arrested for meth distribution

    good, we need all those people off of the streets.

    Why don’t you publish names on any of your articles? It’d be nice to know who was arrested, who crashed, who killed who, etc.

      Well, let’s see – she sold/distributed once but that wasn’t illegal enough … let’s really help her out and see how many more times she’ll do it. Three times … yep I guess that does it – she needs to be arrested now for three counts rather than on the first one … I guess that’s what informants are paid for.

      I know – It’s not like we can’t just go to the Arrests page and figure it out, but it would be nice if the article would say. Besides, just reporting the person’s name isn’t a presumption of guilt.

      If you want to see who was arrested and their address and what they were charged with ,go to the washington county sherrifs website under bookings and there she is and all her info.

    Odds are that the confidential informant has her/his own felony drug possession charges, and was put up to these purchases to work off those charges by the Washington County Drug Task Force.

  • Mary May 2, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    Why do they need her to do it 3 times? Why not just once?

  • orry May 2, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    Exactly Mary.

    Was she a big time dealer and supplier? How much did they find with her at the time of arrest? Did they find several ounces or kilos with her, Or did she just sell them part of her personal stash? It would be nice to know how much of the drug was confiscated during the arrest. It’s wrong either way, but just good info to know.

    Sure looks like we have a bunch of dopers who read and respond to this site!

    • Ken May 3, 2013 at 12:27 pm

      One thing is for sure, people like you make asinine comments! Also I would see a doctor about your rottenkrautch!!

      • Josef Raughttenkrautch May 4, 2013 at 11:25 am

        The asinine comment one is from making fun someones last name.

  • Jon R. Cocktoasten May 3, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Lets start with… Once may be enough but it’s usually plead down to a lower offense which then gets them a slap on the hand… Also remember that these people aren’t trustworthy, so they may lie and say it was a “one time thing” which will get them even more leniency… To prove this person is a drug dealer and it’s not just a “one time thing” several controlled purchases are made at different times, hence several charges. There ya go!

    meth is bad news, maybe this could be the thing that saves her life. I have seen its demon in a family member. The question becomes, how far down does one have to go before they can come back up? Just say’n

  • informant May 4, 2013 at 10:49 am

    Is the law, or an informant for the law, supposed to judge a person’s character and then entrap them more times to be ‘certain’ of what type of person they are dealing with OR is the law supposed to respond the first time, let the law take its course, let the person decide if they want to break the law again, and THEN have another case? Sounds like the law has become more than and enforcement arm if they need to cause/allow multiple charges to build up.

    • Jon R. Cocktoasten May 6, 2013 at 10:17 am

      “Entrapment”??? Where do you get that from? Wouldn’t that be a Judge’s decision to decide if someone is entrapped? Besides, do YOU even know how someone is entrapped? Do you know when someone is not entrapped? Also, what if the person is given the chance to “break the law again” and its you or a family member that is their victim? Then, the cops should have done something about her the FIRST time… Anyway, look up entrapment and then decided if you wish to reply. Legalities are complex issues that should be decided by a Judge and/or Jury…

    And if anyone believes that Raughttencrautch (or any other spelling) is a real name, check out google. It goes back to old obscene jokes from guys in the military about prostitutes and others. I first heard jokes about Susie Rottencrotch 60 years ago. Remember, most people here don’t have the cojones to sign in here with their real name. I dod.

    • Rosie Raughttenkrautch May 5, 2013 at 11:52 am

      Oh? DOD you really? Or is your name made up from another “old joke” you heard? I once heard someone complain about a “Darn Blister.” So obviously your name is made up too.
      Do you think you are the first one to give us a hard time about our name?

  • Dan Lester May 5, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    Rosie, if that is really your name, my apologies. However, considering old jokes, and the fact that people on here generally use assorted fake names, I believe(d) that it is/was. Note that I was not the one giving you a hard time about it. That was “Ken”, who might even really be named Ken. Or not.

    I’ll be happy to show you my driver’s license or passport if you have any doubts about my name. Will you do the same?

      Well, actually my name is not Rosie, that is a nickname. My real name is Rosalinda.
