Running with the Big Dog

HPP runner bitten by dog, case goes to court against owner

bitten while running

Five months after I was bitten by a ‘dangerous dog’ the owner was finally in court to answer the complain.

In District Court today, Sept 8, 2011, the owner of the dog that bite me, D.P., showed up in the courtroom of Judge Freitas and was advised of his rights.

Judge Freitas told Mr. D.P. that if found guilty the court could impose a 30 day jail sentence, $1,000. Fine, ask that special confinement rules apply to the dog, and have him pay restitution to the victim (that would be me).

Judge Freitas advised Mr. D.P. to get a Public Defender and that the next court date has been set for October 11, at 1:30 pm in the same courtroom.

Mr. D.P. took the judges advice and filled out forms to see if he is financially eligible for a public defender.

The wheels of justice might be slow, but looks like there will be some sort of justice in this case.

Damon Tucker

https://waynejoseph.wordpress.com/2011/05/16/how-to-win-the-battle-against-loose-dogs-in-our-community/

In the same courtroom, prior to my case being heard, Mr. Damon Tucker and his attorney was in court.

Tucker has been accused by Puna police of obstructing justice, when he videotaped a brawl that was going on in Main Street Pahoa.

Mr. Tucker is suing the police for abuse in this case as he was slammed to the pavement and incurred numerous abrasions and bruises.

His court case will not be heard in Circuit Court as Mr. Tucker’s attorney has asked for a trial by jury.
