No jail for Shane Ladner

| October 3, 2017 | 51 Comments

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, valor thief Shane Ladner will get no jail time for lying on his application for employment with the Cherokee County, Georgia Sheriff’s Department, for providing forged government documents for his Purple Heart license plates and for providing forged government documents as evidence in the court case against him.

A former Holly Springs police officer who lied about being a Purple Heart recipient to get free license plates was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years on probation while avoiding jail time.

Shane Ladner must also perform 600 hours of community service and pay $6,000 in restitution to Cherokee County, District Attorney Shannon Wallace told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in an email. Ladner was sentenced as a first offender.

A jury convicted Ladner on May 28 of five counts of making false statements and one count of theft by taking after he claimed he earned the medal, awarded for combat wounds, when he was injured in Panama in 1989 during the operation to capture President Manuel Noriega, The AJC previously reported. He was found not guilty on one theft charge.

Ladner also tried to sue Atlanta’s Fox 5 because they exposed his lies. They won the case last year, with a little help from TAH and our expert staff, but obviously, the judge didn’t think that trying to pull the wool over the court’s eyes is anything to be upset about.

Ladner and his lawyer made up stories about his secret Purple Heart and claimed the orders and citation were stored at Fort Benning, Georgia and in a Panamanian cancer hospital, but not at the NPRC in Missouri.

    I think the fine was far too light. Should have been triple that, and he should have to provide free services to REAL vets. And get his mouth sewn shut.

  2. Just An Old Dog says:

    Well I figured as much. This is why Stolen Valor needs to be prosecuted by itself or added on.
    May he live in shame for many years to come.

  3. Frankie Cee says:

    If Shane Ladner’s wife is still with him, she is as much a fool as he is a scammer. If she can tolerate having a Man, male partner that looks her in the eye and tells her lies, I guess that she deserves him.

    • Retired Commander says:

      The Judge supposedly gave the probation because of his disabled wife, you know the one legged woman in a wheelchair that started the whole thing in the first place. No one would have known about the poser if he hadn’t gone to Midland Texas for a free hunting trip. But when the train hit the parade float killing the 4 honored veterans and throwing the wife under the train it all came out that he lied to get there. I was in the Courtroom yesterday and after the so called sentencing I saw that poor disabled white trash going after some guy screaming she’s not brain damaged and he’s not going to get her money. It was truly a sight to be seen! The Judge sure made a bad call on that one. She may have one leg because of the poser, but she can sure take care of herself! Those wheels were spinning. I thought she was going to get up and take him on and he was just an innocent bystander. I guess she is brain damaged, but her handlers were just standing and staring at the ridiculous scene. She’s pretty big and scary! She needs no help!

    So, he can participate in the upcoming Veteran’s Day ceremonies?

  5. Sarge says:

    Too secret to show proof but not secret enough to claim for free license plates.

    Chickenfucker I say…

    No friggin wonder the courts of the United States do not have the respect of the public. Hell the judge does not even have respect for his own courtroom. This guy is guilty of perjury, filing false official documents and grand theft. His lawyer is guilty of suborning perjury. It is a slam dunk conviction. I will bet that within five years the bastard will do it again.

    I’ll bet he never pays the fine and does not do half of the bullshit service. So much for justice in Amelica.

    (Apologies to Warren Zevon)

  11. DOUGout says:

    Doesn’t the fat guy always have the best haircut?

  12. Bobo says:

    If I recall correctly, judges in Georgia are elected. Maybe it’s time for a push to change Cherokee County judges.

    • USAFRetired says:

      Here in Georgia the particular court judge is an elected position.

      Which of the six crimes that he was convicted of was the first offense?

      I forget whether he testified and lied in court during trial. But if so how about a follow on perjury charge. And a suborning perjury charge to disbar his lawyer.

      • Retired Commander says:

        I’ll be pounding the pavement in Georgia in the next campaign to get rid of this so called Judge. He didn’t want to take his time to even try this case and was in Ladner’s pocket the entire time. Ladner never testified, just had his minions lie for him! He controlled the Judge! Never saw anything like it. The Judge should step down and the defense attorney disbarred! It was a comedy routine.

  13. Jonn Lilyea says:

    Someone sent us a picture from the courtroom. He’s going with the operator beard for legitimacy these days. The service dog is coming, I guess.

    • Retired Commander says:

      Trying to hide his ugly, guilty face from the folks in Georgia who he and his dog faced, fat wife scammed. She should get some kind of disguise going too, but oops how can she hide that wheelchair!

      • Shaking My Head says:

        With all the supposed money she got she should start investing in some plastic surgery. Maybe a fitness trainer for both of the fuckwads would be in order. Spread the wealth with her cronies in the courtroom yesterday cause it ain’t pretty….her arms resembled a rhino and still fat hanging off them, she obviously doesn’t use it much cause after this amount of time I would think at least her arms might be toner? Although, I wouldn’t want to be caught dead with a poser like that next to me. They deserve each other! Scumbags both of em!

    • Perry Gaskill says:

      That’s an interesting new photo of Ladner. My first thought is that it makes him look like Kim Jong-un’s brother from another mother…

    • Bobo says:

      He looks like hammered shit.

  14. Slick24/7 says:

    About what the Judge said before sentencing…. first talked about the DD214 and how the government, meaning Army should have corrected it. That if Ladner had a copy that wasn’t correct, it was the Army’s job to fix it. Now from what I understand is thatLadnet was only on orders and shouldn’t have gotten a DD214. And that’s the reason they talked about why the other six copies were not where the should have been, except the one copy the VA had that was a member 4 copy that Ladner gave them. The other ting about what the judge said that made no sense what so ever was that…. Why would he get the tag on the Older Red pickup and not the new handicap Van. Well judge let’s see… he had the PH plates that he didn’t have to pay the tag on for five or six years prior to November of 2012 and I think we remember what happened in November of 2012, the Accident ! The Van didn’t show up till 2014 or 2015 how could he have put the tag on the van ??? When they arrested him in June of 2013 ? The best though was when he started off saying how this is the most difficult cases that he’s ever had and that there’s so so much evidence out there that regular people in the courtroom have not seen that he has.

    • Johnnyjumpup says:

      What a cluster Fuck! Such Bullashit! This judge is an idiot! If he didn’t understand he should have asked for help or clarification. In Texas this idiot would be looking over his shoulder…he would never have been elected in the first place. What a white trash movie. You can’t make this shit up. Perjury on the stand as well. Wish the judge had been standing outside watching his wife wheeling herself around going after people. Two white trash lovebugs with all their money sucking friends standing around! Disgusting!

  15. John Seabee says:

    10 years probation… IMO he will fuck up within 2 years and get remanded…

  16. The Colonel says:

    I am presenting this analysis of Ladner’s legitimate service and decorations to answer lingering questions about how he managed to weave this web, and hoping to convince naive family members and foolish friends that they have been duped by a one who has characteristics of a megalomanic sociopath.
    The two DD 214s in Ladner’s official records are the only legitimate ones issued to him, and are both completely and absolutely collaborated by his service records. Those same service records seem to confirm that the “war stories” Ladner put forward as his own were either based on the experiences of his peers in service, who did actually deploy to some of the sites he described and participated in some of the missions he claimed, or on video games and movies.
    The earliest one shows service from August 1990 until July 1994, and lists the award of the National Defense Service Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, and the Humanitarian Service Medal. The same service that qualified him for the HSM also qualified him for the Joint Meritorious Unit Award, approved after his period of service in the qualifying activity, but he apparently never got around to asking personnel to update his records after it was announced.
    Ladner had almost three years of inactive reserve obligation and a civilian break in service before he enlisted in the Georgia National Guard, but he did not participate in anything other than routine inactive duty for training during this time frame. His Army National Guard records reflect the award of one national guard decoration for being activated as a guardsman.
    The second DD 214 shows service from October 2001 until October 2002 (post 9-11 call-up), and lists the award of the Armed Forces Reserve Service Ribbon with “M” (for being mobilized from a reserve component), the National Defense Service Medal – 2nd Award, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and the Army Achievement Medal – most mobilized guardsmen received Achievement Medals as a “thank you” for serving. Like the remainder of his mobilized peers, Ladner received this document from Army personnel at Fort Benning when his tour of duty was over, and they, of course, processed it as a matter of record. However, Ladner did not return home, and furthermore, not long after receiving this DD 214, Ladner decorated himself for his wedding in February 2013 with the unbelievable array of ribbons, including the Purple Heart ribbon, that were so evident in his online wedding photographs.
    Unlike his fellow guardsmen who returned to their home units in October 2011, Ladner remained on Active Duty Medical Extension orders, due to “incapacitating injuries” incurred stumbling backwards off a curb. Those orders specifically indicated that he would be entitled to a DD 214 when the medical review board made its decision in his case. The DD 214 was the document most civilian employers understood and expected as proof of a returning employee’s ordered military service for the time he was away from the job.
    When a medical review board finally decided to cut Ladner loose, after almost three years of mostly ADME duty, primarily serving as a game warden on Fort Benning, he requested that final DD 214. He would have been cautioned not to list any unearned awards or decorations on his final DD 214 worksheet, but he knew that he was being separated and would not have to show his final DD 214 to anyone who might know better. That, in my opinion, is when Ladner listed from memory, as best he could, the ribbons he wore in his 2013 photographs, many of which had already raised questions, plus a few more even more impressive ones. He knew that those decorations would be shown on the DD 214 that would be printed then and that no one would likely ever check out the validity of the awards shown on it.
    Ladner apparently did not intend originally to show his facsimile DD 214 to anyone except the naïve, gullible, or ignorant; but, his own lapses in judgement in presenting the document to the media as proof of his story or to the Georgia motor vehicle department to secure a Purple Heart license tag eventually led to his public exposure as a fraud. Unfortunately, although he could ultimately only be charged with lying about having been awarded the Purple Heart to get a free license plate and lying under oath, his base persistence resulted in hundreds of thousands of wasted research and investigative hours, valuable court and law enforcement time, hundreds of thousands of dollars, and endless emotional and physical pain for those who were closest to him. And it did reveal the unfortunate hypocrisy of those persons involved with “Show of Support,” and the mindless support of some of those who “served” with him in the guard and in law enforcement.

    You got that right !!! All but the last part where you say 2013, it’s 2003

  18. The Colonel says:

    Thanks, Slick, for the correction. I blame it on age, and research fatigue.
