|At a bare minimum, this liar should serve actual jail time equal to some multiple of the combined total number of days served by the people who were arrested on his perjured affidavits.|

|He does have years of a good record that can be taken into acct.in the sentenceing.|
But i believe that since he was in a posistion of trust ,paid by tax payers like us he should be held to a higher standard than a normal citizen.And this cop like any other criminal was caught this time ,how many illegal things did he do before he got caught.

|Are you kidding me? What is with this plea deal? Our taxpayer dollars go to pay this so called officer of the LAW who's job is to serve and protect us. Look at how many lives he ruined by falsifying evidence. How much time was spent behind bars by innocent people because of his gross dishonesty? There should be NO plea deals accepted in this case. We cannot have corrupt police officers serving our communities and every officer out there needs to learn from this. I have absolute respect for police officers and what they do but when something like this happens it puts doubts in everyone's minds as to how many others are out there that haven't been caught yet. That's not fair to the honest ones who took their oath and stand by it.|

|So lets get this straight and accurate. This honorable undercover narc officer(mooresville's only) who risked his life daily keeping the children safer in the meth infested Mooresville that's known around central Indiana as the place to go buy meth, crack and pills, will have to sit and have the drug dealers who set him up slander and verbally spit on him ?|
Folks this guy may have checked a box on a long form like he was trained to do and signed the bottom but it wasn't possible for anyone to be wrongly prosecuted by a once optional field test because all drug evidence go's to the state police labs prior to prosecution. This officer is the one who went and told the prosecutor office when he discovered what happened. He was setup by a pusher whose druggies lowyer jumped to use this to get his rightfully past convicted pusher customer out of jail. That didn't work so they pushed to have the number one pushers enemy put in jail. Experienced officers have in the past been trained to just check the box. Now users are coming as far away as kokomo to by their drugs in mooresville and this guy whose family ran scared while he keep the streets clean, now sits and take all the first stones cast by an ignorant public he would still die for. It's funny when people get on the malicious slander wagon how stuff just gets made up out of the blue to look cool.
This is a good Christian man who has been close to death and his families lives threaten as a way of life while being paid scwat. He loved protecting his community. He deserves the communities support and appreciation.
Or, I suppose some of you may want to go to court and hold the hands of the meth dealers who are going to try and put him off the streets at his sentencing.
This community is a sad and embarrassing place sometimes. Old infected students risk their childrens lives, emotional health and futures by sending them into dangerous union-government schools who are loosing their accreditation for not being able to teach children or even keep them safe, to be taught by irresponsible teachers to be irresponsible adults, but will then sit back and crucify a man like this who risked his and his family's life to protect the children of the community.
I support Officer Whitley and every good citizen of this community should to. If there are any left.

|Kudos to you Liberty. Seems you have uncovered alot of the truth into what has happened to Officer Tom Whitley. To all of you who commented above & judged Tom when you don't know the facts, you aren't worth my time to even address you, & my guess would be you probably have met the police in a professional nature hence your responses. I will correct one bit of fiction in the above comments....no innocent people spent one day in jail because of Officer Whitley.............he only put drug selling scum in jail & unfortunately now that they set him up they freely run the streets of our town selling drugs to our children. Tom Whitley was one of the best police officers this town has ever had & the truth will be printed some day. He did what he did to protect his CI who unfortunately set him up & the tests he didn't perform on the substances are not permissable in court they have to be sent to the state police labs. These criminals could still have been charged with selling look alike substances, but the Prosecutor didn't see fit to do that instead he set them all free. That's what we should be appalled about as far as the justice system goes. Some of the substances sent away did come back as drugs, so it is even more absurd.|
Tom Whitley is a strong Christian man that turned himself in, when he realized that he was set up, & I trust would trust him with my life.

|Spare me - he lied plain and simple. He's not the only officer who has lied to make charges stick. I get really tired of hearing how these are "good christians". I thought "good christians" along with police officers weren't supposed to lie.|

|Officer Whitley is the lowest of the lowest. Risked his life? from all those gun fights in Mooresville. I bet he has never had a gun pulled on him. And so what if he did. He took the job, he knew the consequences of his actions. It seems we call those wrongly convicted drug dealers, this is no less than slander and Officer Whitley a saint. If Whitley couldn't prove guilt with out obstructing justice, I doubt if you could. As far as him being a Christian, he should be scared to death. Taking the freedom from someone by falsifing evidence, that's got to be a one way ticket. I suppose you believe he took this minimal punshiment to avoid further public embarrassment. Bahahaha. |
He has betrayed the public and should be punished severely.

|Hoos, You don't know what happened. When you do I know you'll think different. Nobody was prosecuted or spent time or anything. I know. This was a clerical issue a drug pusher and his lawyer played out. We are usually on the same side about many things like this and when we are able to give the full truth and names and party people you will go wow. You know I don't make things up and I do my homework.|

|Lib, the man took a plea. If he were innocent he wouldn't have. Even if he took a quarter million drug dealers off the street and lied once, it's a violation of the public trust and he knew better. 16 victims, not seeing this as a clerical error but more as a habitual criminal.|
