A $500 Fine

Roger Matlin got a $500 fine as his “sentence” today for disorderly conduct following a GY council meeting about a year ago. GY probably spent more than that on the prosecution just sending “witnesses” and “victims” there since Luizi was there again today and he and Dalke were there for the trial as well.
Roger and his attorney appealed his conviction before they left the courthouse.
Gelzer felt compelled to speak some nonsense in open court to the judge about “political agendas” before the sentencing. Only Gary knows what that had to do with another man’s sentencing. Gelzer attended the trial as well. Who knows why he did that either. Your tax dollars at work.

  1. Sorry Roger… Good luck on your appeal. Hopefully you’ll get a judge that see’s an injustice and treat’s it like one. To say it’s “very close” because of its First Amendment implications and “I’m sympathetic to the victim in this case,” Williams said. “He didn’t deserve to be treated the way he was.” says one thing… his actions say something TOTALLY DIFFERENT.

  2. Hopefully Mr. Matlin will eventually be vindicated by the Arizona Court of Appeals as was Michael Roth of Quartzsite for a similar contrived incident during a town meeting in Quartzsite. If you read between the lines in the COA’s Decision, La Paz Superior Court Judge Burke steered a jury away from the First Amendment.
