  • Sicko,I hope he has to do all 23 years.

  • holy **** I’ve met him before he seemed like a cool guy. Never would have guessed.

    • sharpen your pencil

      You obviously didn’t talk to him very long. This guy is a self obsorbed jackass. He referred to himself as the mayor of Petrolia. It will be a good thing for the mattole valley having him locked up! One less meth raging ass**** thinking he’s king shit and can rape women, or screw around, he had a wife and kids and obviously cared little about them!

    • Yes, I know Saucy. I knew him before meth. Meth stole his soul. Heartbreaking. Another loss.

  • finally a little justice

    My thoughts exactly. And that he’s subjected to the fear and trauma his victims went thru. Very rarely would I wish for someone to serve their time at pelican bay; am praying this guy does. Having his family offer the victims 25,ooo each to recant their testimony makes it even sleazier.
    Dave Meserve stay out of local politics, I will never trust you or your family again! Your karma will come too.

  • Every day all day!!!!!
