According to a news release issued Tuesday afternoon, Fuhriman has decided to step down after nearly eight years of service. 

“With our youngest child set to go to college next year, for the first time in decades, my wife Karen and I (being “empty nesters”) are planning on spending allot more quality time together. With 18 years as an Idaho Falls Police Officer and another (almost) eight as the Mayor, I am ready for some new challenges and am looking forward to spending more time with my family… especially my grandkids!”, stated Mayor Fuhriman.

While it has not always been easy, the work has always been extremely rewarding. I am especially proud of the way the city has been able to weather the economic storms of the last several years without us having to cut services, raise taxes or lower expectations. Idaho Falls is a great city with a bright future and I am proud of my years of service here.”

What goes around, comes around Jared. I am a Christian & still I can only hope & pray that things get worse for this despical excuse of a human being. I know and have proved from my own experience that prosecutors & cops LIE and twist the truth ALL the time! Fuhriman & other politcals dogs like him ONLY care about Convictions!! NOT JUSTICE. I hope in some way Fuhriman & the others involved in Angie Dodge's case suffers even more than the family of the victim and the mother of the man & the man himself who was railroaded into being falsely accused and convicted because of his lies and unethical feeding of information to this young man. I do believe, as he swore to God that he was telling the truth, Jared Fuhriman will spend eternity in hell with the REAL killer of Angie Dodge. God is sovereign over all, and he will JUDGE the evil this man has done in his life.

This guy is a real POS who should be in prison for what he did to that kid. I hope this azz gets what he deserves. We don't need people like this liar on the face of the Earth. Karma is a btich, and so is this dirt-bag. The whole "memory loss" is a scam so that he can deny putting that innocent kid in prison for over 10 years.
