Our thoughts... The Sheriffs Department
Placeholder Image

We also acknowledge with pride that the Newton County Sheriff’s Department trapped another pervert, who thought that he could get away with trying to seduce a young child in our county.

A 58 year old grandfather, Wayne Crider, traveled from Danielsville with hopes to take advantage of an underage girl whom he met on a chat room. He was arrested.

We are always glad to run these stories on the front page, and as we have said before, there should be a special punishment for men or women who try to destroy the innocence of a child.

We also offer a warning to parents: please pay attention to what your child is doing on the computer. Ultimately it’s your responsibility to keep your children safe from perverts like Wayne Crider while the NCSO work to keep them off the streets.
