*The disrespect failure of ADA Melissa Poole to call me as I had requested numerous times through the four years (salt in the wound for my family). After four years from my son's death until a week before the sentencing hearing. A call was finally returned to me only because MADD's Cynthia Hagain director of the Atlanta office called Poole on my behalf.
*Justice delayed..! 4 years from crime to Plea. No calls returned by an ADA in that four year period Until MADD stepped in a week before plea.
*ADA Pooles' failure to read the case file before negotiating the plea agreement. Poole admitted this during her first and only returned call to me a week before the hearing. During that conversation I asked her to describe the crime scene (which I was familiar with). Being painted into a corner with no knowledge of same she admitted not having read the case file.
*ADA Poole's negotiated the plea agreement with defense without reading case file first and without knowledge that the defendant had a prior DUI within a year of killing my son. She initially disputed this fact (of the prior) with my surviving son in his one and only returned call. When she subsequently called me (for the 1st time) she was then aware that def had the prior DUI.
* I have forgiven the defendant, a troubled young man with a drinking problem, but I have no aspirations of forgiving ADA Poole. Her failures showed an indifference to the one consolation that my family and I had hoped for; justice. Not the def's head on a stick, but competent process of law.
A forever grieving dad, Terrence A. Brady

Specialist Ryan Brady, U..S Army, Iraq vet and his wife had a baby girl just 80 days prior to his death at the hands of a drunk driver. The wounds that my family and I live with we're made more unbearable by ADA Poole's indifference to my families need for justice.

Thank you, the opportunity to air my frustration is helpful. TB

NOTHING, is more crooked than the Liberty County Justice System. If the defendant is a local good ole' boy, don't be surprised if he gets out of the plea deal. Oh, the things I could tell you...

That aside, I'm sorry for your loss and the crap you've had to endure...

In this case it seems like a lack of respect for my grieving family as well as indifference and incompetence. Thank you for your concern!

The indifference that that ADA Melissa Heifferon Poole showed was more than disrespectful to me and my surviving loved ones, but disresctful to our beloved Ryan who had just become a dad. He was about to go on his second tour in Iraq when he was taken away from those of us that loved him, Poole couldn't even take the time too return phone calls made by his dad and brother. She didn't have the decency to respond to the grieving family that needed to know that Ryan was getting the representation that he deserved by the CJS in Hinesville, Ga. Shame on that woman.

Georgia Victim's Rights Laws

Article 17-17-11 - Victim's right to express opinion as to disposition of accused's case.

The prosecuting attorney shall offer the victim the opportunity to express the victim's opinion on the disposition of an accused's case, including the views of the victim regarding:

(1) Plea or sentence NEGOTIATIONS; and

(2) Participation in pretrial or post-conviction diversion programs.

The more I find out the extent to which ADA Heiffernon-Poole failed our beloved Ryan and our family the more pain we feel. But, this process of catharsis is owed and needed by our family especially to our beloved fallen hero, Spc. Ryan T. Brady!
