*     Because the main residence is not wheelchair-accessible, David Stoltzfus Smucker, who on Friday was sentenced in Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas, was living in a cottage with couples from his church who were taking turns monitoring him day and night, according to staff.
From the LNP article, “Here’s a closer look into Whispering Hope, other Amish and Plain mental health facilities,” (click here).
     So Whispering Hope couldn’t accommodate Smucker either. Ridiculous and sickening!  


     On Friday, Judge Dennis Reinaker sentenced Smucker to 38 to 76 years in prison.
     He addressed Smucker’s placement at Whispering Hope during the proceeding. He said Smucker’s placement at Whispering Hope was a “completely appropriate decision” because Smucker’s health condition necessitated he stay somewhere other than the county prison.
From the LNP article, “A Lancaster County man was charged with sexually abusing 4 girls. Where he spent the next 10 months raised questions,” (click here).      
      Why hasn’t LNP asked the county prison why they couldn’t accommodate Smucker? It seems to be a selective list who the prison can handle and who they cannot.  
     Supposedly the prison also cannot handle Debra Slaymaker-Walker who killed two teenagers and severely injured a third with her car. She has been at at home on $1 million unsecured bail and posting on Facebook since October of 2018.

    Confused as to why the prison can’t handle Slaymaker? Really? She only had broken bones and a special walker to walk with. Said so herself…What’s so hard about that?

    What is sickening is that a group of supposedly educated, professional people, judges, district attorneys, lawyers, mental health providers are falling for this scam. As long as these “plain” facilities have no license, no skilled providers, no certifications of any type they are no more than a place to go to dodge jail. Our judicial system is aiding this scam. I assume these facilities are all being privately funded. I hope they are not getting any type of public funding. These places should be shut down and the plain people be treated in the exact same manner as everyone else. It’s all about money!

    I was visiting friends this weekend who swear this pervert isn’t Amish but rather took in trade the four Amish girls whose life he has ruined. I asked if the parents of the girls were held accountable in any way but no one seemed to know.

        I have no idea if they were correct in saying he wasn’t Amish. It came up in conversation and one of my friends made that comment that Smucker wasn’t Amish. They did seem to know that the girls were Amish. More than that I do not know
