Wanted Walnut Hill Man Now Behind Bars

January 5, 2011

A wanted Walnut Hill man is now¬† behind bars, about a month after deputies asked for the public’s help in finding him.

In early December, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office asked for the public’s help in locating Floyd Scott Mooney, 39, on multiple outstanding warrants.

Tuesday afternoon, Mooney was booked into the Escambia County Jail on felony charges of aggravated stalking and misdemeanor charges of stalking and three counts of contempt of court for violating a domestic violence injunction. He was being held on $25,000 bond.

    DNA tests are usually used to establish paternity or to compare to bodily fluids left where they shouldn’t be–either on other people or at crime scenes. Thus, it’s not like it is self-evident as to why they seek them.

    David still musing on buccal swabs

    Oh, and as far as the DNA test, let’s think about it. Why would they want to do a DNA test on him??? Isn’t there a child involved???

    First of all, I do know everyone involved in this. These charges came about when the authorities were told that he was contacting her. But he never contacted her, she contacted him. That’s what happened. Ashley, your dad loves you so much. This will all work out. I know it has to make him feel much better to know that you are here defending him against people ignorant to the true situation.
    It’s so easy to look at the charges and assume that he’s guilty for everything they’re saying. Remember innocent until proven guilty? He still has his rights, and they will have to prove that all of this is true. I really think most of it is going to just fall away. Especially these new charges. Scott isn’t a violent man. Never has been. And anyone who knows him (and I don’t mean by just reading this site), knows he wouldn’t hurt anyone. Anything he’s been convicted for isn’t for violent behavior. Don’t assume things about people you don’t know.

    I’m sure he’s a wonderful person, but it would be easier to convince less trusting people if he didn’t have to face charges like possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. And what’s with the buccal swabs? What DNA do they need to compare his to? Or is it just for future reference to convince others later that he is still a wonderful person when some other crime arises and it will eliminate him as a suspect?

    David for avoiding the need for contact
    with law enforcement officers and the court system

    To OMG and daughter

    I live in a free country that guarentees me freedom of speech. A lot of people gave their lives for us to have this freedom.

    “Tuesday afternoon, Mooney was booked into the Escambia County Jail on felony charges of aggravated stalking and misdemeanor charges of stalking and three counts of contempt of court for violating a domestic violence injunction.”

    You say that stalking and abuse was never a factor. Why was he charged with it then? Something had to happen for this man to be charged with all of this. But like everyone says, you never know the truth. Only the true people involved know what really happened. Stories get twisted CONSTANTLY. Don’t automatically believe everything you read people. And for familes involved, human beings are cruel. Just ignore them and their comments.

    To just my 2 cents:
    Stalking and especially abuse was NEVER a factor in this situation. He never once “abused” her. i know my father and he has never even threatened to lay a hand on me throught my whole life, or her. And i really dont like when people think they know what they’re talking about but they have NO clue!

  9. OMG on January 5th, 2011 7:01 pm

    i think people should really keep comments to themselves when it comes to judging him or her since they know nothing other than what is written on this site !

    it’s funny to me that the public knows all about this, but the victims never respond. YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT GOES ON BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, no matter how well you think you know the victim. There are women (especially) that are in what their relatives think are “perfect” marriages, but really they are miserable. Don’t judge until the truth comes out…none of us really know

    You’ve got to be kidding. These charges will drop…He didn’t stalk her or violate the order…SHE contacted HIM!!! And yeah, there’s proof…He’s a good man, he’s made mistakes, but he really is trying to steer clear of all of this now. She’s young and immature and doesn’t realize how much pain her actions are causing everyone else. This will all wash out in the end, I just hope it doesn’t cost him the rest of his life…

    It’s not about love, it’s control. ie: It’s not over until I say it’s over. They also believe that if they say or do the right thing, he/she will come to their senses and realize that the stalked person is wrong. Really twisted thinking.
    To the victims, never give up. Use every tool at your disposal to get away. It’s a hassle but it’s death to stay.

    Dude, learn – when it’s over, it’s over. You can’t make someone love you — what on earth were you thinking?? Did you really think stalking and abuse would win her heart???

    Undoubtly you never learned there are bounderies.
