    Gearhart in court……probably never!!

      For sure! The way they keep postponing his court date I’ll be surprised if this crook ever winds up behind bars! He, Jay Miller and David Graves need to be cell mates for a long long time!

    This is pretty easy to figure out. We are getting close to Kelly Gearhart coming back to town for his court appearance. I think that there are many folks at Heritage Oaks Bank who may be getting a little uncomfortable.

    Two paragraphs in the name “Lagomarsino” pops in there but, it doesn’t say who he is so who cares what he thinks I guess! (Ed. clarify please). :)
