yeah we saw that on another thread isnt that so sad
The animal cruelty laws in the state of CA are woefully inadequate. The MAXIMUM penalty for the most heinous acts you can imagine, prosecuted at the felony level, is one year in a county jail..not even in a prison. This was prosecuted as a misdemeanor, and if you understood how difficult it is to get convictions, you'd actually be surprised he got 45 days..although I agree, he *should* have gotten more time.What a cruel [email protected]#@[email protected]! He only got 45 days in jail! I think he should be put in prison! That just makes me so mad that he got off that easy!
I'm sure the overloaded case loads have something to do with it. But it was explained to me a HUGE factor was politics..DA's like having a high percentage of convictions, and it's very difficult to win cruelty cases. They also like more high profile cases that will bring them lots of fame and glory.why do judges and DA's not take cruelty cases seriously? Is the court system too inundated with cases?
