|Mr. Furniss should ask Prosecutor Sonnega for the same treatment Dean Mayfield received for his DUI....case dismissed, but unfortunate for Mr. Furniss his wife isn't Morgan County Clerk.|

|Obviously a stupid mistake, he's lucky nobody got hurt. He should be treated like any other person who commited the same crime, that's the important message to send - he's not above the law. I dont see how him losing his job is going to help the situation. It's not like kids are going to say 'Hey, he was driving drunk, maybe I should try it.' Perhaps he can use this experience to talk to kids on a more personal level about the dangers and consequences of drinking and driving.|
I do think he should lose his ability to drive a school owned vehicle though, when he gets his license back that is. Either that, or he should have to pay for the increase in insurance for him to drive it.

|Hey Lass, hope you are doing well. Dean didn't get a reduction in sentencing, he skated all together. |
July 25, 2009
A Mooresville business man has had his criminal case dismissed because the state failed to bring him to trial within a year.
Special judge Frank Nardi agreed with attorney John Boren that the state had failed to take the case against Terry Dean Mayfield to trial within the prescribed time period. Nardi issued his decision after a short hearing in Owen County Circuit Court. Through his attorney, Mayfield asked and received a waiver from the court and did not attend his hearing.
Mayfield, 48, Martinsville, was charged on July 11, 2007 with operating while intoxicated as a class A misdemeanor.
(Flipping coincidence. This happens all the time in our county courts, right?)

|As I stated earlier Mr. Furniss should ask that his case be handled just as Dean Mayfield's case was (I mean wasn't) handled. Coincidence that Mr. Mayfield's DUI was sent to another county & that county prosecutor failed to bring Mr. Mayfield to trial within a year..........I don't think so! Just because Mrs. Furniss isn't Morgan County Clerk doesn't mean Mr. Furniss should be held more accountable than Mr. Mayfield, a Mooresville business man (that just happens to hold some of the town of Mooresville's insurance business).|

|Hoosier- I'm doing, but I can't say well, though it will get better.|
The thing that really frogs me is how Mr. Furniss, Mr. Mayfield, Mrs. Burnham, Mrs. Whitley or any other public servant or spouse thereof is crucified in the media like this. I really don't see why this arrest has to bring up Mr. Mayfields's record without any others as mentioned above.
Now my question is to you do you think this has to do with his wife being clerk?

|If it was Mooresville he would have already been in front of a board for termination! Why cant martinsville have that.|
I think you meant Officer Whitley himself or maybe Officer Pughs Wife. Maybe I missed something though

|Good for you Lassiter. Not to minimize the seriousness of this offense, but comparing the way in which it is handled in other cases shows just how little people understand the law. Every case is different. Never are the circumstances exactly alike. That whole business is a distracting rabbit trail.|

Uhh, sorry my mistake, you are correct. I did mean officer Pughs wife. I'm not up to steam so thank you so much for the correction. :)
