Judge exercises heartless judgment in dog’s abandonment

-A A +A

To the editor:
I find it difficult to comprehend how District Court Judge Jerry A. Jolly could be so heartless in the case of Springer, the dog left to die in a foreclosed home in Leland earlier this year.
Where does he get the power to make his own laws? If any action is taken to get him removed from the bench, I will contribute money if needed.
The dog’s former owner, 35-year-old Tara Johnson of Leland, pleaded no contest Sept. 30 to abandonment of an animal and complied with deferred prosecution. Jolly voluntarily dismissed the cruelty to animals charge against her.
What a slap on the wrist for being so stupid and cruel.
