finally her day

If only all the information was able to the known about this case. There was so much that Ms. Oxford had to endure for years. The car inquestion did not have just brake issues but she had to put a log under the tires to prevent it from rolling away, and the other cars went to officers that had much newer cars. Thats not even a fraction of the issues. the letter from ex-sheriff stating the disgrace was from a detective who was forced by the ex sheriff to write the letter against Ms. Oxford and a confession of forced coersion is in evidence. The reason... well lets just say that the former sheriffs son took over Ms. Oxfords postion as detective after he had only be an officer for a year, over all the officers that had education and experience.....hmmmmmm.
