I think what happened to Billy Brown was wrong. I think what happened to his father was JUST as wrong. Bill Brown was denied access to the courtroom during Billy's proceedings. I was wondering why he wasn't in there ...I saw him in the very beginning of the trial, and after that he was missing. (Until the verdict). Even though he was a court official, I saw Whit Moncrief and several others in the courtroom. I know that Bill Brown stated to the Prattville Progress that the state had called him as a witness, but I think there was some injustice done to the entire Brown family because of this. Is it possible the state called Bill to be a witness, just to keep him out of the courtroom? (They had him on the witness list, but didn't call him to testify??) Just a thought....I'm just sayin'...
Bill Brown had a heart attack 3 years ago, and has an experimental "microscopic pump" that was inserted during his cardiac surgery. He is experiencing health problems, and resigned this past week. I'm sorry to see Bill leave the courthouse, as I think he kept them on their toes there. But, I'm glad, for his sake, that he doesn't have to be in the position to see the sheriff any longer. That is a good thing afterall, considering what has happened to Bill's son, Billy.
Bill, I wish you and your wife best wishes for your health and happiness. I'll be praying for you and for Billy and Deb as well. I met Keith, and he's also a fine young man. I hope that things work out in a positive manner for you all.

In a historical 6 to 1 vote at Montgomery City Council, it was decided that it will be illegal to use your phone OR text while driving. You would have to be stopped for another reason, but if it was determined you were on the phone, you will be fined $50.00. Watch your local news broadcasts tonight at 10 for more details.
