Just decision

We so admire Judge Alicia Nakata for her decision to deny first-time offender status to Jamar W. Stipek (The World, Jan. 6), sentenced for first-degree animal cruelty for torturing a small dog to death. Our families are supporters of the local Humane Society. We have rescued a total of three cats and four dogs over the years. People who read this story and say it’s his first offense and “it” was JUST a dog have never had a pet as a best friend. Although we don’t condone the actions of the pet owner, we understand her rage. Judge Nakata is to be admired for her decision and I along with my family plan to vote for her each time she is running for re-election.
