The Campaign For DA


Another Case I Could Win Without Saying A Word

(DailyMail)A woman who stood between an armed police officer and her dog has been acquitted of obstructing justice. Tiffanie Hupp, 23, was arrested on May 9 last year after she stopped West Virginia state trooper Seth Cook from shooting her dog Buddy, who was chained to a wall at their home in Parkersburg. During a jury trial which was concluded on February 29, Cook said he had been trained to shoot dogs, whether or not they are chained. Cook had been called to the property to solve a dispute between Hupp’s husband’s stepfather and a neighbor.

Someone explain to me how the prosecutor's office didn't scribble a note and send it back to the trooper which read, "Refused. You are out of your mind if you think I'm going to prosecute this."
