    I wish I could take every person that hasmade some sort of negative comment about these two individuals and run you through their shoes for the past five years. Anyone who claims to know the two guys portrayed know nothing of them like I do. People always want to take the first glance of negativity and run miles and mile with it without the slightest bit of knowledge except whats written on a head line. "Trafficking drugs?" Right that is exactly whats going on. Making profit the easy way? Yeah, being disabled with more health problems then you can imagine, and none of the problems having anything to do with "drug use" These men have done everything they can to keep their families out of poverty and losing everything. How dare anyone say that these guys sell drugs to minors. Take a deep breath, get your heads of of your fairy tale worlds and grow up. Life isn't all sunshine and roses.

    reply to Lisa, I know these two men, and they are probably in the shape they are in is due to drugs, and you say think about their families, think about the families they were selling the drugs too. Why should they get a pat on the shoulder, probably were sellling to minors, but that is ok, huh?

      I agree with you on that Lisa... they are arrested and will answer for their crimes as they should....I have kids that I would hurt someone for selling them drugs.... I just feel sorry for all concerned... I am known for my heart....and no I dont think they should get a pat on the shoulder... I think adults make their own decisions.... to buy drugs.... but if you sell drugs to anyone thats bad enough but if they were selling to kids I don't think they should ever get out of jail..but I still have sympathy for the wife..she is a hardworking good woman.....I don't know them on a personal level... but I do shop in the store his wife worked in and her world and nerves have been turnd upside down... and I do have a heart for her... and yes he should have thought about how this would affect his wife and Son.and I dont think there is any excuse for someone abusing their prescription.. its makes it tough on the ones that need it... I just dont see why people have to be hurtful there are always innocent people involved

    Doctor shopping to obtain illegal drugs is happening everyday. The court system must make an example out of these two drug dealers. Maybe this will help stop others from profiting from selling their prescription drugs. Their victims and their own families will suffer the most. I guess being on disability gives you plenty of time to try to scam the system and make the easy money instead of having to work like most of us do.

    Lock them up. Throw key in the tar river. Better yet throw them in the river with the key.

    The father/son have been dealing drugs for the past 10 years. They have been reported before to the police but until now never were caught. These drugs have destroyed many families. The love of easy money has brought down many. The father should have never got involved with this drug dealing since he already had one son on death row in Florida. I hope if they ever get out of jail that they wise up and earn their money honestly.

    Unbelievable; what a sad pair. The son looks somewhat 'effeminate' to me, in the photo; don't mean to offend any family members. Heroin is instantly addictive. It has destroyed so many lives over the decades; you'd think people would learn. They should be forced to give out the names of their customers, mainly so they can get help. Heroin withdrawal is so deadly, one can die from it. Thanks to LE for stopping them; find the source of the 'junk' so there won't be more profiting off their sad clientele .
