Something Is Rotten In Santa Rosa County Florida
Oh yes, something is rotten in Santa Rosa County Florida. I want you to meet Ms.Kimberly Mass-Rodriguez. She was charged and convicted of two counts of trafficking in hydrocodone, four counts of obtaining drugs by fraud and one count of welfare fraud. For her misdeeds, Ms. Mass-Rodriguez was put in prison for 15 years. She also has to pay $150,000 dollars in fines.
My question is; does welfare fraud carry a 14 year prison term? Apparently it does because if we are all treated equally Ms. Mass-Rodriguez would have only been sentence to one year in jail for the drug related charges with work release privileges. That is basically what Ricky Perritt received for his misdeeds. Although he did not commit welfare fraud his charges includes three counts of obtaining a prescription by fraud, three counts of withholding information from a practitioner and three counts of trafficking narcotics (Lortab).
So let us tally this up:
Kimberly Mass-Rodriguez: two counts trafficking in hydrocodone, four counts of obtaining drugs by fraud and one count of welfare fraud.
= 15 years in prison
Ricky Perritt: three counts of trafficking narcotics, three counts of withholding information from a practitioner and 3 counts of obtaining a prescription by fraud
= 1 year in jail and work release privileges.
I am confused. He has more charges but receives less time?
