The fallout from the employment of Stephen Parker, the disgraced former San Juan County detective who had sex with an alleged victim in a case he was investigating, continues. His actions caused a new trial to be ordered in one case; child rape charges reduced in another case; charges dropped in a third. Now some people are debating if Sheriff Ron Krebs and Prosecutor Randy Gaylord lied when they answered questions about Parker from the county Council at its January 24, 2017 meeting.
An anonymous group has posted excerpts from the January 24 meeting on Youtube along with comments. The VIDEO of the entire meeting can be watched on the county's website. (The discussion in question starts at 1:59).
In an effort to present the facts, San Juan Islander Editor Sharon Kivisto interviewed Prosecutor Gaylord, Sheriff Krebs, and Deputy Jeff Asher this past week. Their statements contradict each other. It'll be up to the reader to make their own judgment on what to believe.
