If this report is complete and correct, then the judge's license to practice law should be carefully reviewed, and the city attorney should be recalled from office.
"As with most graffiti cases, Mr. Olson was offered reduction to an infraction after completing volunteer work service cleaning up graffiti," read the statement. "His refusal resulted in the trial and his successful defense."
You NEVER take a case to trial you CANNOT win-ever. Squirrel Toupee had NO chance of wnning, yet went to trial. Jeff Olson now has a right to sue the SDPD in federal court for violating his 1st, 4th and 14 Amendment rights. Good job Squirrel Toupee you just cost the city tens of thousands in a civil judgment and hundreds of thousands in legal fees as Squirrel Toupee will be forced to pay Olson's attorney fees in any civil rights judgment (42 USC 1983, 1988)
Wow. Unbelievable to ask Olson to surrender his driver's license. Fair? NO! Outrageous and over-reaching. Thanks for the story, one that we'd never know if not for your report.
