    Hospodar and another kid named josh roccograndi stole a dirt bike from my house last summer. The 2 were charges with the crime. Hospodar is supposed to pay restitution but have not received a dime yet. For Rocco there was as bench warrant out for him because he never showed up for the hearings. He should have been in jail a long time ago. Hope he stays there

    Additional charges should be brought against the two “adults” for involving a minor in their stupidity. None of them will learn anything if all they get is probation without additional compensation if not locked up for any given time!

    Jarod is not native to the area. He lives in the west side. He was arrested in June for stealing 3 dirt bikes from the patch!!!

      Ha! I should’ve added what you us said! I was gonna say if they don’t do time, they will just repeat the crime! But thanks for confirming that! Isn’t often what happens? I guess it makes some kind of sense being our prisons are so full to give non-violent criminals a chance to right themselves. My guess is that 50% of the time it doesn’t fly that way.

      make a honest paycheck.How to live
      clean from drugs and respect others

    First off i believe there needs to be a harsher punishment for offenders. Also i believe criminals instead of sitting in jail need to go out fix roads, fix parks actually get something done like they use to. That would change a good portion of these criminals. We are too cushy in this country.

      I was saying that to the husband too! It’s nice to hear some people have a clue and answers and ideas as to how to resolve the problems of the rise in crime and the lack of ethics and respect these individuals have towards themselves and society. They will never become productive members of society if not shown another course of action to take, and/or learn that there will be serious consequences for their actions.
