Those of you who have been following Mom's adventures in the legal system will be heartened to know that a modicum of justice was served today when Mom got a voicemail from the assistant district attorney handling the case against the man who mugged Mom last May 22nd.
Mom testified on Wednesday and the jury heard other testimony on Thursday. After some deliberation, a verdict was submitted on Friday afternoon. The mugger was found guilty of one count of armed robbery. Let's hope that his sentencing (March 19th) results in some prison time. Apparently, the penalty for robbing someone at gunpoint and threatening to kill them is a maximum of three years. In my mind, he needs more "punishment" than that ... But, I am a cat, so my opinion doesn't hold much weight with the legal system.
