    It is so sad that you would even put your children through something like this. This trash is what gives Ardmore a bad name! You should have been attending school, getting an education, and taking care of your children. In the end, they are the ones that will suffer the most and hopefully they can break the cycle and become law abiding, well educated citizens. Maybe while serving your time you'll have time to be educated!

    I was reading this today and someone posted Lauri Martin queen of drama. Now what does that have todo with posting your commits about what happen. You just proved you are not here for that. You are posting cause well it sounds like me you might no her and speaking a jealious mind. She must have done to you personley at work when you used to work with her or yall used to be friends and jealious can really hurt you if you dont get some meds to take care of that. Maybe c a doctor. I read the one that Lauri wrote seems shes not in jail that sould tell everyone somthing and when the ones she is talking about get caught. Maybe her name can be cleared. Poor girl, Lauri I will pray 4 you and hope everything works out for you and your children. Thank you and if your gonna put a personal statement put your name. You must no her and scared. Thank you kxii for letting me state my opion. Jennifer cloner
