Sentencings

Anyone read the district court section of the newspaper? Every single time the more serious offenses are dropped and the minor one is fined. Every time. Possession of heroin/fentanyl withdrawn, $300 fine for possession of drug paraphernalia. Another, disorderly conduct, $300 fine, aggravated assault, simple assault, harassment, resisting arrest withdrawn. Makes lots of sense, doesn’t it?
