Press Releases

Because so much of the population today, utilizes the Internet as an important source of information, I feel that it is critical to acknowledge the postings, which may be available to you – both good and bad.

I cannot guarantee I have given you links to everything that is out there, but I have tried to give you what I could find so that you can be as informed as you can, when deciding who to vote for.

I also encourage you to Google the names of all of the candidates, you are considering or are interested in – such as my opponents. Always remember to search a name in all of the forms it may appear in, such as Sandra Donaghy or Sandra Craig Donaghy, etc. It is likely you may find some very interesting information. Should you have a concern about anything you should find, please feel free to contact me.

Please remember that the links below may not always work as each Website can take down a particular page I may have listed as a bullet below. This is beyond my control, should it happen.

Postings you might find to be negative about me:

It is possible you may find something negative, such as the Bud Cash Suit in Federal Court. This plaintiff was a disgruntled person claiming he had been mistreated by law enforcement in a court proceeding. He brought suit against everyone involved from law enforcement to members of the District Attorney’s Office. The case was dismissed in Federal Court. Regarding the McConkey case, during a suppression hearing, the defense demanded that the State turn over copies of the officers’ notes in additional to the reports which had earlier been provided. The State did not have the officers’ notes. Three of the seven officers that testified remembered making notes but had not given them to the State or brought them to Court. The defense attorney said the notes were important for him to effectively cross-examine the officers. The Court agreed and ordered the officers to produce their notes. He allowed the State 30 days to provide copies to the defense. The case was continued to finish the hearing at that time. The defense requested that the State bear the expense of a transcript so he would have a record of what the officers had testified to for the rescheduled hearing. However, before the hearing was held, the officers provided copies of their notes and the case ultimately settled without need for additional testimony. The defendant plead guilty:

  • Justia Dockets & Filings

  • OakRidger
