Is Judge John Crandall fair toward former police officers

A shooting happened in July 2012 in a motel in Old Forge, NY.

Leach, a former police officer, claims to have a history of nightmares, where an intruder would appear. Is this documented beyond his verbal claims? Was he treated by a professional for any conditions? As a police officer, he shot and killed a teenage girl in 1975. He subsequently refused treatment related to the shooting.

In July 2012, Leach shoots and kills his son in a motel room late at night and in the dark. Leach told the 911 dispatcher an intruder was in his room and he had no idea who he shot. That seems odd because a rational person, especially a former police officer, would turn the lights on to see if an intruder was really there and if any further threat still existed prior to calling 911.

Back in Dec 2013, the trial was adjourned indefinitely so Leach could be evaluated by professionals. How many defendants receive this break in time from court for psychological evaluation?

Leach will receive only six months in jail and five years of probation in a sentence from Herkimer County Court Judge John Crandall. Does this sound reasonable and similar to what an ordinary citizen would likely receive in a similar case? Will Leach's gun permit be revoked? Will he continue to own firearms?

Interestingly, Anthony Randazzo, a former NYS Trooper, shot and killed a dog on a public walking trail near Utica in Aug 2011. Randazzo claimed the dog was aggressive toward him. Randazzo continued to shoot the dog through the back while standing over it and looking directly at the dog's owner (from Utica OD reports). The dog died later that day. Randazzo's married (to another man) girlfriend had an argument with the dog's owner the day before on the walking trail. Herkimer County Court Judge John Crandall found Randazzo not guilty of felony aggravated animal cruelty and misdemeanor animal abuse.

Does Judge John Crandall give former police officers preferential treatment? It would appear so. It may be time for Judge Crandall to go.

Seems true, albeit sad.

When will the citizens of Herkimer County stand up and toss Crandall out on his arse?

Feel free to break the law. Hire GA. He'll make his puppets ( Judge Crandall and Jeff ( Mr corruption) carpenter will reduce your murder sentence to probation. I'm beginning to wonder if either of these knuckleheads have the ability to conduct a trial.
