District attorney rejects grand jury recommendations

Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014 — Lassen County District Attorney Stacey Montgomery declined to follow a pair of recommendations from the Lassen County Grand Jury seeking investigations into actions by the Lassen County Board of Supervisors because action by her office is unwarranted, unreasonable or not in the interest of justice.

Montgomery’s response, included in a Sept. 16 letter to Michele Verderosa, presiding judge of the Lassen County Superior Court, contains language similar to the board’s response to the grand jury from last month.

The grand jury recommended the district attorney’s office review two alleged incidents — a conflict of interest by a seated member of the board of supervisors regarding the sale of property in Herlong and the addition of an emergency agenda item necessary to place a ballot measure for emergency medical services in the North County on the June ballot.

Judge rejects Bennett plea

Monday, Oct. 20, 2014 — A Susanville man may now face trial for 65 counts of animal cruelty after a judge rejected his plea agreement.

Dwight Alan Bennett, 62, appeared in Lassen Superior Court on Tuesday, Oct. 15 for sentencing, however, the matter for discussion centered on a tentative ruling posted by former presiding, now visiting judge Stephen Bradbury.

The tentative ruling, dated Oct. 15, said, “After evaluation of the underlying circumstances and the extent of the grossly inhumane treatment of the large number of horses found living in possession of the defendant and reasonable inferences to be drawn from the large number of deceased horses upon and near his property, the court finds the agreement between the parties for 120 days of jail incarceration for the defendant is not within a sentence range just and appropriate for his conduct.”
