Extortion, embezzlement, witness tampering, kicked a man in the nuts while handcuffed on the car captured on dash cam destroying computer so it cant be evidence, doing a fundraiser for a choir that didn’t exist and pocketing the money, conducting surveillance on those who threatened his illegal operation, and numerous other charges.
Byrd, accompanied by lawyer Joe Sam Owen, went to court and got six months house arrest – tell me that’s fair.
