16, 1998 at approximately 10:A.M. District Justice Mark Devlin
dismissed the initial set of tickets, in short
Holtzgraver stated immediately afterwards...
- "he disagreed
with the outcome" "he
was considering bringing in a prosecutor from town to do it again"
Maybe Ken Starr could be brought in to do it???
- a strong
insinuation was made that an attempt to bypass Justice Devlin will
- "parking in that
area of my property puts pedestrians in jeopardy of being hit when
the car pulls out"Pedestrians
are always at risk, particularly so in situations like diagonal
parking outside your police station, where vehicles must back-up
with little or no visibility. Many of the vehicles along the
highway in this area must back onto the highway to exit their
parking space. Backing out is certainly safer!---YEAH RIGHT--c'mon
chief get real! WHY NOT ABOLISH VEHICLES IN THE BORO OF WEST VIEW
COMPLETELY--then the risk drops to ZERO. If your "pedestrian at
risk" theory had any validity, there would be no parking anywhere
in the entire world!
been parking with part of your vehicle extending past the edge of
the building, and we've let it pass"
FOR AN ALLEGED PARKING INFRACTION!! SO VERY SORRY cHIEF, FOR
BLOCKING ACCESS TO MY OWN PROPERTY, I APOLOGIZE TO
after the dismissals, a new ticket was issued for the same imaginary
offense, at the direction of chief Charles
the ticket stated that the car was there for over 1 hour. The car was
parked on my own private property, and for 30 years there have never
been any time limits, nor are any posted! Is this official
chief---are you going to ticket me if I sit here for some arbitrary
length of time?
then...another ticket...the very next time the car was parked in the
more for the precise same violation that had been
merely a civil matter. Can you imagine what he might do in a criminal
trial if he disagreed with the verdict, or HIS PERCEPTION WAS that
the defendant was guilty?
IT IS INTERESTING
TO NOTE, TRUE TO HIS WORD, THE VENUE WAS CHANGED, AND A HEARING WAS
HELD IN BELLEVUE, A NEARBY COMMUNITY. A PROSECUTOR WAS BROUGHT IN, IN
A WAY...THE BOROUGH SOLICITOR ACTED IN THAT BEHALF. OF COURSE AN
ADVERSE RULING. THEN THE ADVERSE RULING IN BELLEVUE WAS OVERTURNED,
AND THE CASE WAS RETRIED IN FRONT OF DEVLIN. THIS TIME HE RULED
AGAINST ME, AND THEN FINALLY ON APPEAL.....
27, 1999 COMMON PLEAS COURT DISMISSED THE TICKETS, AND PUT THIS
STUPIDITY TO REST, NOW ON TO ROUND TWO--A CITATION FOR ZONING
