Lawrence is the Chief Deputy Coroner for Scott County. Scott County Corner Dana Anderson responded to his arrest stating, “He doesn’t do any drugs, he owns his own business and provides for his wife and three children by working 15-18 hour days and then on call 24/7 for coroner…This guy that works so hard for our county can pass a drug test any time day or night…I have supervised 1,000’s of parolees and I can without a doubt say Aaron Lawrence is a hard-working, drug-free husband and father who can’t win for losing.”
