Dupnik's own daughter faced drug charges, but did he find her help?

Posted on 01/12/2011 2:56:01 PM PST by Minus_The_Bear

Sheriff Clarence Dupnik has managed to place himself in the media spotlight by blaming the political and media climate as the reason for last weekend's Tucson's massacre. In fact, the Pima County Sheriff went as far as to blame talk radio host Rush Limbaugh for the tragic shooting that took the lives of six and wounded 14. However, if Sheriff Dupnik is willing to use this line of logic, is he then willing to take responsibility for the fact that his own adult daughter was arrested on drug charges in his own county? His daughter was first arrested for on drug charges in 2004.

Was this why no charges were ever filed against Jared Loughner?

Was there any relationship between Loughner and Dupnik’s daughter?

Mary Louise Alvarez Dupnik, 40, was arrested on suspicion of unlawful possession of marijuana, unlawful possession of a dangerous drug, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and an unrelated failure to appear on a charge of having a suspended license, according to the jail.

She was booked into the jail the same day a search warrant was served at a Midtown hotel room where methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, a scale, syringes, pipes and counterfeit money were seized, according to court documents filed Friday.

Tucson police would not provide any details Saturday about the incident.

Those are federal offenses. Was there a federal charge? Did the sheriff run interference for her to have charges dropped? Inquiring minds want to know.

I can’t condone taking illegal drugs but with a Dad like hers I can kind of understand it.

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik failed to protect the community.

Even the college saw this man as a threat.

AZ involuntary commitment laws would have aided in what the Community College saw and acted upon.

'Pima County Arizona Sheriff Clarence Dupnik’s Daughter Sentenced To 2 1/2 Years In Prison', a follow up article explained on May 26, 2007. After police found methamphetamine, cocaine, pot, and paraphernalia in her motel room, Dupnik pleaded guilty to "attempted possession of dangerous drugs." She was sentenced to 1 1/2 years for that, as well as an additional year for "violating her probation for attempted car theft."http://209.157.64.201/focus/f-bloggers/2655843/posts

After police found methamphetamine, cocaine, pot, and paraphernalia in her motel room, Dupnik pleaded guilty to "attempted possession of dangerous drugs." She was sentenced to 1 1/2 years for that, as well as an additional year for "violating her probation for attempted car theft." The Pima County judge who sentenced Dupnik was Stephen C. Villarreal. Five months after Sheriff Clarence Dupnik's daughter was sentenced to prison for drug and other charges, the sheriff gave Jared Loughner a free pass on one of the identical charges: "possession of drug paraphernalia". Loughner was cited in October 2007 but the charge was dropped two months later, after he completed a 'diversion' program'. Exactly one year later, in October 2008, presumably when Mary Louise Dupnik was still behind bars, Loughner "faced a "local charge" in Marana Municipal Court," according to the Arizona Daily Sun. Like his first charge, it was also dismisssed after a diversion program, in March 2009. The Sun notes "It's unclear what the exact charge was."

Found it on another thread.

I thought the actions and statements of Janet Napolitano the United States Secretary of Homeland Security had replaced “Polish Joke’ with "Napolitano" jokes only to be proved wrong by Sheriff Clarence Dupnik.

Wow. Sheriff Doopnick's daughter sounds like one very messed up drug addict and career criminal.

Roll was a federal judge. Was there an indictment pending?

Interesting-- the way the Sheriff went off about bigots against immigration...the several drugs his daughter had, counterfeit money, motel room, car theft...I wondered if his daughter was somehow connected to some border smuggling or a spouse involved in such???

Also of interest, listed at above link it lists under Work Program: YARD DETAIL... HORTICULTURE SPECIAlIST

I wonder if she worked for the park Jared's mom worked at after she was released?

Yeah, it's a bunch of speculation but it caught my attention and I couldn't help but wonder :p

One article said the father was unemployed: the mother was the primary source for income...Was the dad a the source for the drugs...a pusher? Sure wouldn’t seek help for a child if you were into unlawful activity.

The county next to us has a couple on the police force, and sheriff office that are related to the meth makers living on their side of the river that devides the county. Seems like they got their jobs to protect their families.

Time for Dupnik to quit.

In his twisted, lib mind, he did find her help. He blamed Sarah Palin.

Dopenik must be starting to rue the day he decided to disparage conservatives.

He evidently started finger-pointing to divert attention from himself and his department but that idea sure boomeranged, didn’t it?

Everybody is checking him out now and probing into his past reminds me a lot of pumping out a septic tank.

He’s due to come up in 2012-—if he decides to run.

After we get through with him, he may decide that retirement is in order. Maybe a little early at that.

I see his daughter was assigned at one point to work in the prison kitchen. They asked her “can you cook?”. They were talking about beef stew. She probably thought they were talking about meth.

The relationship between Pima County and the Loughner family needs to be looked at by a Grand Jury, not the FBI or the State. I bet there’s a lot there-—young Jared was arrested many times but has no criminal record. Who is intervening, altering and removing official records and WHY?

Pima County sounds like a California County! Special rules for special people, Cops kids out of control, etc etc.

I heard a report that the accused’s mother works for Pima County Comission. Maybe that is how his behaviour went unchecked for so long. There appears to be a lot of covering in the government/legal complex in Pima County.
