How can the judge, rule without prejudice in this case, when he already said that this deputy had "no criminal intent"? Isn't that for the jury to decide?
You need to school yourself on the law a little before you make yourself look like an idiot. He was charged with a crime that has no intent. That is why the judge said what he did. Same as a traffic speeding citation. You don't have to prove that the individual intended to speed, only that they were speeding. A battery charge, for example, requires that the individual intended to harm another.

Question: How could bond be set for this officer before he appeared or made a pleading, I posted this question and it was removed. I stated I am tired of seeing the crookedness in the Ottwas county court system,
Interim bond is frequently set when the warrant is signed.

If this case makes it to a trial, I hope I'm in the jury pool....I already made my mind up, NOT GUILTY.

this police officer should not be convicted of any wrong doing. There needs to be an eye opener to the youth and the drugs.... this could wake a few of them up to what could happen. The officer and other officers do not know what awaits them on the other side of the door and in a split second he had to make a choice - he made it - the young man is alive. Doctor's make split second decisioins also and don't go to jail for deaths. Please consideer a desk job for this officer.
It is the cops who better get the "eye opener" and stop conducting BS raids like this one must have been since no one has had the guts yet to show us the Affidavit for the Warrant. Lets see the warrant, was it a sale of a dime bag that got this kid shot. How about an ounce is that enough to justify a guns drawn raid? What if it was a pound of dope, do you shoot unarmed citizens over a pound? Why are they sitting on this Warrant and Affidavit?

What a wonderful comment by a judge who is supposed to be neutral in the case. The judge already is saying he didnt have any criminal intent. Isnt that for a jury to decide? Special treatment, its already happening. The judge is saying he had no criminal intent. Someone who goes out to the bar and drives drunk and kills someone has no criminal intent also. Wonder if the judges gives that opinion when someone kills someone after drinking and driving. Im sure the dad who blew his own kids head off cleaning his gun didnt have any criminal intent also. But he killed someone!
The charge that was issued already demonstrates he had no criminal intent. The judge will say the same exact thing to a jury if it makes it to jury instructions.

I wonder what you do for a living? I bet it does not involve risking your life everyday for people you don't even know.

I hope this deputy walks away with his job and no conviction.....

obviously you don't understand what exactly intent means

Do you even pay attention or are you an idiot? The warrant was issued while the deputy was already away for spring break. He had no knowledge when the outside prosecutor would issue.

JUDGE STATES: "YOU HAVE A PERSON WITHOUT CRIMINAL INTENT AND A GOOD PERSONAL RECORD".
WHAT RECORDS WERE IN FRONT OF THIS JUDGE? APPARENTLY NOT A COMPLETE ONE, NOT THE ONE THAT WAS SUBMITTED FROM ME TO OTTAWA IN 2006 ABOUT THIS COP STATING THAT SOMETHING VERY, VERY BAD WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THIS COP, AND THAT THIS COP HAS A VERY SERIOUS ANGER PROBLEM, ETC.- WHERE IS THAT RECORD JUDGE?
"WITHOUT CRIMINAL INTENT" - IF SHOOTING AN UNARMED MAN AND HURTING PEOPLE FOR NO REASON IS NOT WITHOUT CRIMINAL INTENT WE BETTER RE-WRITE A FEW STATUTES. HARMING INNOCENT PEOPLE CONSTITUTES CRIMINAL INTENT -ESPECIALLY WHEN THIS COP HAS DONE THIS BEFORE - HE HAS A PROVEN TRAC RECORD.
WHEN COPS CAN COME INTO YOUR HOME AND SHOOT YOU FOR NO REASON, WE BETTER FIND A NEW GOVERNMENT. HUIZENGA SHOULD GET 2 YEARS IN PRISON AT MINIUM.
I GUARANTEE YOU HUIZENGA WAS AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN, AND OTTAWA COUNTY WAS WELL AWARE OF THIS COP'S ANGER PROBLEMS. IT IS REALLY SCAREY THAT MEN LIKE HUIZENGA CAN CARRY A GUN.
THANK YOU JEFF FINK - GET THIS COP OFF THE STREETS AND BEHIND BARS WHERE HE BELONGS!
Why sounds like maybe you and Copp smoke the same stuff. He was the criminal in this case.

No you are mistaken. The prosecutor needs to be voted out for wasting the taxpayers money with even bringing this to court.

warrants have bonds attached to them when they are issued. if there is no bond it says no bond....good try trying to make the judge look bad though
