Hank “Tommy” Croslin Jr. , brother of Misty Croslin, also in jail on drug charges, was sentenced this morning morning to 15 years in prison for trafficking in prescription drugs.

Circuit Judge Terry LaRue sentenced Tommy Croslin to 15 years on the charge of trafficking in Roxicodone. Another sentence of five years in prison for drug possession will be served at the same time.

Misty Croslin, was the last known person with 5-year old Haleigh Cummings when  the little girl disappeared from her Putnam County home in February 2009.

The drug-trafficking charges resulted from an undercover operation in January, and also  included the arrest of Ronald Cummings, Haleigh’s father, Donna Brock and others. Croslin’s lawyer, James Werter, urged the judge to consider Tommy Croslin’s cooperation with the investigators in the Haleigh Cummings’ case. Cooperation??  What cooperation??

The prosecution, which was seeking a 30-year sentence — countered that Tommy Croslin only came forward when facing serious prison time — and that he failed to tell authorities what had happened in the home the night Haleigh was reported missing.

This Tuesday marks the 18th month mark of her disappearance. Haleigh’s birthday is August 17th, and what’s left of the family on the “outside” is planning a balloon release in her honor. Maybe now seeing her brother get 15 years will refresh Misty’s  drug clouded memory a little about what happened the night Haleigh disappeared.

This week alone we saw Judge Strickland remove himself from the Casey Anthony case because he talked to a blogger he became a fan off. Then, it was falsely reported in the media that bones belonging to Haleigh Cummings were found, compromising the investigation and forcing the Putnam County Sheriffs Office to refute the allegations. Imagine if this was YOUR child?

Night after night these cases are rehashed. People with no connection to the case being dubbed as “experts” on cable news and family members recant different stories to different anchors?

Is this justice? Has the media become Judge and Jury?? Is this a setting a dangerous precedent??? And with this kind off attention can the accused get a fair trial?

Please join Brad Conway, attorney for Cindy and George Anthony, the parents of accused murderer Casey Anthony. Also Reporter Rozzie Franco went to police with information she learned instead of the media. She joins us to tell us why she may now be a witness in the Caylee Anthony case. And Richard Hornsby, Orlando attorney has tried many cases in front of the new judge, Judge Belvin Perry, (as has Brad Conway) and according to Hornsby “he is NOT defense friendly”

This hour is not to be missed. Justice is just a click away, every Sunday night at 8:00pm live

In this business, you have to be cautious. The biggest lesson I have learned is reporting something first does not make you a better journalist. Reporting something accurate does. Last night on cable news, it was reported that little Haleigh Cummings’ bones were discovered in the St. Johns River. Today after the media descended on Satsuma, FL, and the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) was flooded with calls, PCSO released a statement (see statement below) saying that the reports were false. What they found were animal bones. These rumors left the other media, police, case watchers and, more importantly, the family with a false sense of hope and closure.

MEDIA RELEASE
Date: April 21, 2010
The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office has received numerous inquiries regarding the recovery of the skeletal remains of missing 5 year-old Haleigh Cummings. A rumor has spread throughout our community that her body has been located. This rumor is false, and this information has been vastly misreported and sensationalized by the media.

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office did recover animal remains such as alligator claws and teeth, and a multiple animal bones. The agency had an anthropologist at the scene that identified all “biological” items that were recovered as being non-human. Additionally, Misty Croslin could have easily seen these items while she was at the dock while the dive operation was in progress.

In an effort to prevent this false information from impeding our investigation, Sheriff Hardy wants to quell these rumors so we can maintain our focus on the criminal investigation.

As I write this, bones pulled from the St. John’s River are being tested to see if they belong to missing Florida child, Haleigh Cummings. Here’s where the problem is — IF they have bones that belong to Haleigh, it’s more than likely that investigators will not be able to get DNA from a perp because of the length of time the body has been in the water. They will have to rely on testimony from witnesses. Based on the stories we’ve heard from Misty, Tommy, Ronald, Cousin Joe, Granny and the rest of the clan, and their admitted drug use, we may NEVER know what happened. What we do know is, if it is her, little Haleigh didn’t put herself in that river, miles away from her home in the middle of the night. Whatever the case, I’m sure there’s a lot of wheeling, dealing and soul searching (for those who have them) going on at the jailhouse tonight. How can we believe anything anyone in this case says, especially Misty? I spent extensive time with her — in Satsuma and in New York — and one thing I can tell you is, she’s a good liar.

Investigators are close to solving this one. As you know, I have been on the ground on this case since the beginning. So this Sunday at 8:00 p.m., I will have live exclusive details on the very latest in this case on my radio show. Is Misty making a deal?? Who squealed….OR WHO CRACKED???
