Former Nevada County Supervisor Terry Lamphier persuaded the county courts to dismiss a no contest plea to a misdemeanor charge of viewing adult material on a government-owned computer.

The ruling came after Lamphier completed his sentence of a year’s probation. The Union has an article about this development. YubaNet does not have an article, at least for now.

  1. The “trolls” on Todd’s blog are struggling with this. Why are they so afraid to sign their names to their words?

    1. Because they are probably all Todd, Jeff, like in the movie “Split”.
      I mean how embarrassing to have a blog and nobody comments?
      So, the best thing to do is become several people and have a conversation with yourself so folks will understand what a popular guy you are, right?

      1. What I see are huge gaps in local coverage of this whole thing that are shameful. Baloney – a total setup beginning to end and someone’s life was ruined.

  2. Well, one thing’s for sure. This story sure ended up a long way from the sensational, unsubstantiated heights of where it began. A cautionary tale to any good journalist to be circumspect, not used. The Union (its former publisher, its editor, its city editor and the reporters) were all used. No doubt about it. The timing of the “leaks” and the “leakers” just before the election and even before any arrest, made it obvious to any bystander that this was politically motivated, not just a criminal investigation.

    “The politics are so nasty because the stakes are so small.”
    Having said that, I do not condone Terry’s actions. But there is plenty to learn from this one, not just about Terry but “good old boy” local politics.
