A 79-year-old woman from Garfield Heights, Ohio, was handed a jail sentence last week after she was caught feeding stray cats, Cleveland.com reports.
According to the newspaper, Nancy Segula was sentenced to 10 days at a local jail for the act, which is prohibited under a town ordinance that bars local residents from feeding animals in the area that they don’t legally own.
This week, Garfield Heights Municipal Court Judge Jennifer Weiler said she would like to hear the case herself after criticism arose over the sentence handed down by Garfield Heights Municipal Court Magistrate Jeffrey Short, who presided over the court while Weiler was out last week.
“There’s been about six to eight adult cats and now there’s kittens coming over, too," she continued. "I miss my own kitties, they passed away, my husband passed away. I’m lonely. So the cats and kitties outside help me.”
What a lovely police state we have.
Notice how Judge Jennifer Weiler could have cared less until the bad publicity...
