Thank You Deputy District Attorney Jeff Stone ~ By Gary L. Stevens

San Andreas, CA...I would like to express my appreciation to Calaveras County Deputy District Attorney Jeff Stone for his courteous demeanor during the recent Kenfort Williams court case. Mr. Stone contacted me in advance to notify me that the case was coming back to court for trial. Mr. Stone took the time to discuss the merits of the the case with me. I had intended to watch part of the trial, however the case settled, and there was no trial.

Mr. Stone called me and explained the reason for the case resolving without a trial. Mr. Stone had extended an offer to Williams. I feel that if a trial was held, Williams stood a good chance of being released from custody with no supervision.

Because of Mr. Stone's efforts in crafting the offer, he was able to extend some measure of accountability and supervision for Williams as opposed to his being released. In my opinion, Williams still poses a threat to law enforcement and the public.

Mr. Stone, I understand better than most, you don't get a public, "Thank you" very often. Mr. Stone, thank you.

Gary L. Stevens

Why would you post this here? It's a really odd and inappropriate way to thank someone.

    Disagree. A very public matter and it's good for the victim to let the public know his thoughts.

      Nope. Look at the last few sentences. He still thinks the guy is a threat to society, so why the thank you to the prosecutor?
      Looks to me like he's calling him out (in a backhanded fashion) on his unwillingness to go after him more aggressively.
      I agree with the first comment. This is an inappropriate forum to air this information.

        They are probably better off if they just burn the witch, then offer an oxen to the Gods for a bountiful sorghum crop.

        It is sincere thank you. If you read it, not into it, this piece of work would be a free man if it wasn't for Mr. Stones efforts.

I am well acquainted with Misters Stevens and Stone. If anyone is interested in discussing either of them, you are welcome to visit my real estate office, and I will be more than happy to insult you personally.

        SanAndreas is also noted for highly respected priests that missed court dates.
