Our January Club meeting will discuss the Henry Haigler case in the St. Johns County judicial system right now. He hit two women cyclists, leaving them to die in the road. He then went home, instructed his wife not to look in the garage, and refused to cooperate with investigators. He told them his vehicle wasn't there, and he wouldn't tell them where it was located. He told law enforcement that he had a family function that night, and that it was an inconvenience for them to be there. SJSO had to arrange to get a warrant with Duval County to enter the garage. When they returned, Mr. Haigler was gone, but the vehicle was located in the garage and impounded. It had heavy damage, with blood, hair and biological material on it. Mr. Haigler turned himself in four days later, after the media blasted his name and photo.
We will have an update on the case from member Mary Greenhill and then the Executive Director of the Justice Coalition, Jo-Lee Manning, will tell us about victim advocacy and what we can do to help make sure Henry Haigler gets the sentence he deserves.
There will also be door prizes.
NFBC Board Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month at Epping Forest, 1830 Epping Forest Drive, Jax 32217 at 6:30 PM.
