ohnson County doesn't need a new building; it needs a new legal system that will render justice instead of the injustices for which it is known. Today I went to Judge Gerard's court and was informed by the Judge that I am not entitled to restitution for damages to my car by a man who threw cans of beer at it, causing over $2000 in damage, in a fight with 4 other hoodlums UNLESS, Judge Gerard informed me, I FIRST PAY FOR THE DAMAGES MYSELF. I have to pay for getting my car repaired out of my own funds to become eligible for reimbursement by the criminal. The JC Attorney stated the same thing. This has to do with the incident reported in the Press Citizen on June 23, 2011 in Iowa City over a supposed construction takeover. I was not aware that a victim first has to use her own money to pay for damages done by hoodlums in order for the Court to hold that criminal responsible for his actions. I informed the Judge that there is no law, Federal or State, that makes such a requirement. He ignored my statement and proceeded to dismiss my claim against the man who damaged my car while fighting like an animal with other "men". I can understand why this man has for about ten years been getting off free when he assaults others with deadly weapons. He has learned there awill be no consequences for his vile actions. By the Judge's reasoning, if someone destroys my property, I must first replace it before the criminal is held responsible. Interesting law the Judge has invented, don't you think?
