    Just a little FYI if you don’t know the story, you really should NOT print it! Billy Goody and Donald Goody are NOT brothers. Not to mention they are not guilty either, if Lawrence county’s finest would have done their job right the night this happened, they would have found that they(Billy nor Donald) were not around that area when the incident happened, but Lawrence County’s finest did not check their aliby nor listen to the chick that said multiple times that she had done this on her own, Go figure, you would think as crowded as the jail is, they would do their job a little better, unless they are in a money maker with the jail, the more they bring in, the more they get from bail bondsman, and the not guilty, just lose their money, that is more up the alley for LC. just sayin: one frustrated momma
