This is in response to the story, "No jail for deer poacher" (Nov. 29).
I am disgusted about the suspended sentence former Mechanic Falls police chief Everett Leonard received. The man faced four felony counts of trafficking in oxycodone, two counts of driving deer/trapping without a license — even exposing himself to cause alarm.
He was clearly out of control and considered himself above the law — as was proven when his sentence was suspended.
There are no excuses for him. He knew that what he was doing was illegal. Being sick wouldn't help anyone else convicted of crimes of that nature.
Shame on Justice MaryGay Kennedy. She sent an incredibly wrong message.
