Ron Cummings in court today–there’s a plea deal in his immediate future.

July 19, 2010

In a 7 minute court appearance this morning, Ronald Cummings, father of missing 6 year old,  Haleigh Cummings, reached a tentative plea deal in the prescription drug-trafficking charges against him and his ex-wife, Misty Croslin, the last person to see Haleigh alive.  Ron’s attorney said that he has agreed to offer a plea in 3 of the 5 charges against him.  The state may drop the remaining two charges.  Ron is scheduled for another court appearance August 20th, giving attorneys time to work out the details.  It’s not presently known which of the 5 charges may be dropped.

Misty Croslin’s attorney, Robert Fields, said Cummings’ agreement will not change how her case is handled. 

“Ronald’s obviously cutting a deal to testify against her,” he said.

Haleigh’s family is planning at August 10th vigil for her.  At that time it will be 18 months since she vanished without a trace.

read it here:

Will Ron’s plea deal bring Haleigh home?  Not likely. I still think we may never know what happened to Haleigh Cummings.  The only consolation in all this has been that the main players may well spend the rest of their lives in jail.  Lotsa time on their hands to reflect on what they did.  Will that bring Haleigh back?  No.  But in a round about way, justice will still have been served.

    Good morning. Another bunch of sickening losers. Ron really thinks he’s better than Misty. I hope his “deal” still keeps him locked up for a long time.

    Good morning Carol,

    Yes, I think he will still spend some major jail time. He’s managed to get himself out of pretty much everything he’s done in the past. I think this time he’s in for a reality check. Unfortunately, none of this has anything to do with Haleigh’s disappearance. I think if Misty or her brother were going to tell the real truth, they would have done it by now.

    How disgusting this case is…….a child has been missing for over a year now……and the principal characters have been arrested on drug charges…….AND STILL HALEIGH IS MISSING……

    I hope they all remain in GP until their hair turns gray.

    It is disgusting, shameful, and unbelievable, really. I hope they never again see the light of day. This won’t bring Haleigh back, but it sure as heck will ensure that these people are never able to have contact with a child again.

    For some reason ron knew this would happen. and he knew one day they would get busted for what they where doing/ the deal i think there trying to make is. what ever the others say about the baby being missing and his name comes up in it. he is free from that deal. meaning they wll not touch him for it.we all know he knows something. the fake crying he did.on t.v and everything else he is not free from this.maybe by man but not by people lets see how this is played out now.

    danielle–I’ve been a defender of Ron in the past—but not anymore. I think he knows something, too. I don’t think he is responsible, but he is certainly guilty of withholding information. Yes, let’s see how this plays out…..
