On $-11...I said...
If Jennifer Petkus is genuinely Mentally Ill...I can not advocate a Jail term for her, as this will not solve the problem. She would do her time and then return to the same actions as before. Obviously, she either gives a persona of Confidence or the people who placed her in a position of authority, as Animal Controller, were blind. This person needs to be sentenced to Mandatory Mental Health Counseling. Without more information on the case, beyond media speculation...I can't sign this petition.

Thanks to another member...I checked the status and writ of the case. Out of 16 counts she is only being sentenced on 4, I would say there are EITHER extenuating circumstances to this case OR the court does not want to admit that the local Govt put someone who is is obviously Mentally Ill in a position of Authority.
I don't feel a petition will have any affect on the ruling whatsoever...further, I see no option for the Sentence I would recommend as I have previously stated my view on this.. No signature from me on this one.

NOTED & SIGNED: Upward departures in sentencing plus large fines and prison time are what is required - and always the prohibition re: any future control over, ownership or other involvement with animals for these types of CREEPS. And that includes the rich ones like Dick Cheney and Sarah Palin too.

I hope they confiscate all of her assets and use these to pay for all of the veterinary treatments and the boarding costs etc. for the over 300 animals who were seized from her ranch!

She should be given 10 - 20 years hard labour for what she has done! A great pity they no longer keel-haul people as a punishment.

Noted and Signed! All animal abusers should face the same punishment as if they abused children as they are as defenseless and have to be protected from vicious, non caring uncivilized people.
