A former Ashland Police officer has pleaded guilty to federal drug and gun charges.
32-year-old Melvin “JR” Schoch Jr. pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute Oxycodone and possessing a firearm in during the commission of a drug crime, during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Ashland. Two other counts from a January superseding indictment were dropped as part of the plea agreement.
Why’d this guy really make the count given the guilty plea?
Schoch, who was on duty with the Ashland Police at time and armed with duty weapon, admitted to entering the residence under the guise of having a search warrant.
Nice using the drug war to steal drugs from people and then sell them. Is anyone really surprised by this type of revelation?
State Sponsored Criminal: Melvin Schoch Jr.
Because the reason you go work for the state is so you can be above the law.
TMM is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
Many know his private name and information however due to the current political climate, many are distancing themselves due to the abandonment of Due Process.
“Is anyone really surprised by this type of revelation?”
I would hope it’s not a revelation. I would hope that anyone would see this sort of thing as a given. Did we learn no lessons from alcohol Prohibition?
Well, it depends on who we mean by “we” doesn’t it? Some of us learned from Prohibition that it encouraged corruption and violent crime on a massive scale. Others learned that it’s a fantastically rich avenue for power and riches, and they’re the ones who reinvented Prohibition, giving us the mess we have today.
