Alpha Omega M.D. – Episode #325
…He continues to sit on the Sheriff Joyce’s covert sex-life for all these years, but that’s not the best part – it turns out that this diddly-do continues to this day…
“Now, tell me about that Joyce fellow, Lyn.” Robert Ford needs to know enough of the facts, to be of able support. He trusts Carolyn implicitly, not knowing her to bother with things she cannot influence, with an accent on success.
“What, did he beat a confession out of some totally innocent black man? Do you have proof about one of his cases, something that would bring him down?”
“No, I don’t know of his police work, at least nothing that would help us here. I bet that he has a spotless record, otherwise how could he have been elected Leon County Sheriff?”
Folks in the South cherish and revere their law enforcement. Would you want one of those heavily medaled uniformed types walking up to you saying, ‘Boy, you ain’t been stealin’ watermelons from farmer Jones’ field, have ya?’ That may get you thirty days on a chain gang.
“County Sheriff is an elected position?”
“Why Robert Ford! I thought you knew all things uniformed –military or cop.” She loves to keep her husband humble. What she has to say next would be of great interest to State, County, or local officials alike. “There was a time, before the war, really before the Depression, that then Sergeant Joyce enjoyed his visits to the county jail.”
“Okay, he loved being a policeman, what’s wrong with that?”
“Nothing wrong with liking your job, but taking personal interest in inmates is.”
“What do you mean by personal?”
“I wouldn’t say it quite like, &?*&%$#@, but I think you get the picture, Kodak.”
“Wow, that is intriguing, but how can you prove something like that? Isn’t the evidence trail a bit cold?”
“Normally it would, yes, excepting that head jailer is still the head jailer and the head jailer is my cousin. He continues to sit on the Sheriff’s covert sex-life for all these years, but that’s not the best part. It turns out that this diddly-do continues to this day.”
“Why did your cousin bother to tell you, Lyn? Oh, I get it. He knew about you and Sara didn’t he?”
“Before I came to my senses, yes, Curt knew and he is very good at keeping secrets.” Carolyn still blushes, when the subject of her and Sara together comes up. “Cousin Curt is retiring this year and he told me that he would love to blab about now. His pension is vested and cannot be revoked by the Sheriff.”
