We know that Lady Justice is supposed to be blind to political considerations. So, how myopic is a Superior Court decision to allow convicted felons, Mike and Brenda Adams, to remain free to go about their lives after destroying so many others?
It has been published many times that these criminals owe thousands of dollars to many government agencies, such as the Board of Equalization, the Franchise Tax Board, etc. They have been given extensions, one after another, to show “good faith,” in their attempts to sell iconic Poor Red’s to help satisfy these outrageous debts. Abusing those legal favors, they have been arrested on other felonies while out on bail.
With these facts, how can the court justify attempting to appease government agencies at the expense of the criminal system itself? Poor Red’s has brought travelers and positive publicity to our county for years. Now, the township of El Dorado lives in fear, not only of retribution, but of economic loss. We looked to our district attorney and the court system for aggressive response to a repeatedly blatant disregard of the laws the rest of us live with and take seriously. We will take another look at election time.
Perhaps it is time for Lady Justice to take off her blinders and see what is really going on in the legal realm of El Dorado County.
