this week, a couple, of similar entrepenurial persuasion, were tried on very similar charges and convicted.
Jail time -- None -- all probation; I do not believe there was even a requirement for community service.
Fines -- none -- they were declared indigent.
Required to cover $10,000 in ASPCA expenses over this incident -- No -- the judge said they were indigent.
So not even community service @ the county animal shelter. No requirement to clean roadsides. Not even a requirement they wear signs confirming what they were convicted of.
If the follow up to being charged is this lax, why would anyone think doubling down with new legislation will be the cure?
