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.
So very sorry for your loss and everything you have had to endure. So sad. I hope that airing your frustrations with the system lends you a little more relief.
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!
You have every right in the world to express your feelings and do it as often as you feel the need to do so. I cannot even get close to imagining what you have been through.
I pray that you find some peace. God Bless you and your family.
