Probation Field Officer Responds

(Hernando, MS) Attorney Stan Little says our report last night shocked him, and his client, former probation field worker Marty Walsh.

Little says the FBI was never involved and Walsh never withheld positive drug test results on probationees, in exchange for sex.

”Mr. Walsh has never been arrested, never been held or detained. He’s never been contacted by the FBI and frankly we don’t expect that to happen.”

In fact, Little says there were accusations made against Walsh and that he resigned a day after learning of them.

He believes the problem came from a probationee who propositioned Walsh, and got mad when Walsh refused and sent the woman to prison.

”There are people out there, women that maybe would be making a play here to exact some retribution on Marty.”

Little says Wash has had a long, and unblemished law enforcement career with the DeSoto Sheriff’s Department and the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

Sources at the Sheriff’s department confirmed his employment there, and said there were no complaints against him.

”In fact, until the story ran on the news last night, I thought there would never be any more to come of this, Mr. Walsh would go along with his life, get a new position wherever he may determine to go.”

Little hopes that’s still possible for Mr. Walsh.

    Just another example of WREG getting one side of the story and not checking facts. Stephane S. being the worst offener. I didn’t see an apology in this story and it won’t come. Stop poping ballons and check facts. I don’t know this man but I do know WREG has a history of running “Top Stories” that turn communities against an accused with little more than rumors. When the truth is revealed its not sensational news so the stories ars never corrected or fully told. Shameful journalism at its worst.
