    This story has hit home on so many different levals. I guess this falling into a mans trap could happen to any young girl when it comes to love. however according to the sister this is suppose to be a bright young girl could she not think for herself?I agree that parenting has alot to do with this had she been raised that this was wrong she would have had a light go on saying no-one is worth prison.And as for the drugs and the devil being to blame maybe so, but had this young girl been kept from drugs and raised in a loving home she would have been strong enough to fight the devil and the drugs. I am just a little older then this girl i have had temptations and every person in this world has the chose between the devil, drugs or living right and having God on their side. I don't feel sorry for this family because their failings in teaching this girl to be honorable and raising her to be an outstanding adult is the reason she is where she is.

    I guess this is what you get in the result of bad parenting. Raise them wrong they will do wrong. at 22 years old she should be in big girl pants now so if she doesn't know right from wrong thats her problem and the parents fault for not raising their child to be an adult with morals, values and respect for others as well as themselfs

    It is only normal for a sister to want to defend. However, Mary is my niece and so is Christina. I do not condon Mary's action for she is old enough to make descions. I will help her if I can but prayer for her, guilty or not is what Mary needs right now. This is not Mike Huffman's first rodeo he is on parole for similar crimes. No excuses from me or either. Our young people are falling to drugs and the devils ways. Do the Crime serve the time. The truth will come out and that is that. But, on the other side Mary has been a good person in the past and this is her 1st charge of any kind. Please pray for the mother and family of Mary. It is not their fault and they are truley troubled.Abot the spell check, take your own advise..

    yes i agree.a 22 year old is not a child that you have to hold thier hand and tell them when to go to bed.they are adults.im the same age and i have a job a child plus go to school.money is very tight.i could take the easy way out like she did,but where would that get me?the same place where she is.i rather earn my way and be able to hold my head up,and someday be somebody.unlike you.you are taged for life and now you want people to feel sorry for you.well,if you are old enough to do the crime,you old enough to do the time.thanks

    @Christina Location: laurel county If she was "brite (To be or become overripe, as wheat, barley, or hops.)" She wouldnt have been with a pill head theif. Also use spell check better if your gonna defend your family it only looks worse on them. Ive seen several dozen girls I went to school with for 10 years suddenly turn pill head as soon as they meet a boy with a habit. 22yr olds are not children. Im not very much older than her and I accepted responsibility for my speeding tickets a long time ago. I also know that if I hang out with people stealing and doign drugs I will end up beside them when they are caught and that is a crime. Hence I dont talk to anyone thats like that!

    This story is sad to me, this is my little sister. Mary is a kind and loving person who got mixed up with her boyfriend Michael Huffman which is a manipulating person. Mary Cobb has never even had a speeding ticket before, she is just a young girl who fell in love and was lead to beleive that she was loved back, but only now to find out she was being used for a robbery. I just felt like that you should know that is a brite young women who because of a looser, has now marked herself for life. She will never be able to move forward if she gets convicted as a felon. I pray for her and I would appreciate your prayers as well. THANK YOU CHRISTINA
