Love how her lawyer says she showed her remorse with her guilty plea. So Mr. Marcella should be grateful that she admitted she's a crook?! Somehow I don't think it's much consolation

It's good that these two have been caught but the charges should include animal cruelty.

Why does our society feel the need to bargain with a serial child molester? 2006 is only the first time he got caught, certainly not the first time he offended. He doesn't deserve a break or time to decide, he should already be put away.

Well said! Unfortunately there aren't enough people that think this logically. Let's hope there will be no payday for this less than upstanding citizen after his recent arrest.

Maybe it's the alcohol she brought in, maybe it was the minor disagreement with a sergeant, maybe she's just a trouble maker. Or she could be a wonderful,dedicated worker who now lost all credibility by playing the race card. Also, you need to have clean hands before waging a war like this and she admittedly does not.

How ridiculous! This man shouldn't be charged with anything. I live in an association run development and when the board won't help with enforcing the rules on quality of life issues, I have taken it upon myself numerous times to leave an anonymous note on someone's door, made to appear like it's from the board. Sometimes it works, so no harm no foul.

Everyone can knitpick this to death and condemn the city all they want but what is the alternative? There will never be enough places to put all the neglected, abandoned or confiscated pets. Boarding animals requires time and money, so maybe the people criticizing should step up and adopt. The city and it's taxpayers shouldn't have to be responsible, it should be the idiot owners. The dogs aren't being starved, beaten or made to fight, the city is doing the best they can with what they have. The alternative is to euthanize and that would put everyone up in arms too. Make up your minds people.

I'm not saying the Starbuck's employee was right but for someone with a brain injury requiring the assistance of a service dog, she certainly was "camera ready" to film the incident. Why would she be anticipating the situation unless she wanted to slander somebody?

The mother should be charged too. When you have kids, they should come before your lovelife. Articles like these are in the paper far too often and it's always some needy woman, who no doubt knew her child was being abused, and chose to let it continue as opposed to being single. They are both disgusting

How about "these detainees" behave in a manner acceptable to civilized society and they don't end up in jail eating off our tax dollars. Hard to feel sorry for any of them and they should be earning every morsel that goes into their mouths.
