This is very upsetting news, The mayor called this a horrific case of abuse and neglect, so what is happening!
At the 2nd hearing on Friday, May 6, Kisha Curtis will be offered a plea deal. Based on her offenses, she will most likely be offered 18 months of probation.Public Defender Kelly Lerner (Curtis’ P…ublic Defender) will recommend Curtis to take this plea deal because if she refuses it, each time she goes back to court, the penalties will just get harsher. There is NO doubt in my mind that she will plea out on Friday, May 6th.
Additionally, the presiding judge is no longer Judge Velez-Lopez. The new judge is said to be extremely lenient. However, we do NOT want to contact the judge, as I was told that it will only aggravate the judge & that there is NO judge who wants to be the first judge to make an example out of an animal abuser. HOW TRULY DISTURBING!!!
We need to contact Cheryl Cucinello IMMEDIATELY & let her know that this is completely wrong, unacceptable and a major travesty of justice. While many of you may have already written to Carolyn Murray, she is only the acting Prosecutor overseeing this case, she is NOT the Prosecutor trying this case.
It is vital to this case that you post this invitation to your wall cross-post it to anyone & everyone you can possibly think of, every politician’s wall, every pet related site on Facebook and anywhere else that you can think of!!!
Prosecutor, Cheryl Cucinello
