I’m a little surprised that a supposed intelligent man, Larry Weitzman, made such a disparaging remark in his May 19 column “The Balancing Act.”
I have no side in the Nutting case, however Weitzman’s remark, “While Nutting was convicted on several misdemeanors, he appears to have skated on all but one felony which appeared to be hung,” was uncalled for. He has disrespected the entire jury that took time away from their daily routines to be a part of upholding justice. The jury’s job was to listen to both sides of the case and make a decision based on the information provided, which they did. If the prosecutors couldn’t present a compelling felony case, then it’s the prosecutors that allowed Nutting to “skate,” not the jury, which in my mind you implicated.
Mr. Weitzman should apologize to all the members of that jury that participated in serving their civil duty to make sure a defendant gets a fair trial.
