Leave it to the Sparks City Attorney to avoid an unjust situation to save face..Chet Adams should have appealed the judge and referred her to the courts for actions of prejudice that resulted in the BS dismissal of a DV case. He is a coward and despite what the judge thought of the Asst DA or her actions, the victim was not at fault but punished...Let them play their criminal/immoral games on their own time and stop using their positions for corruption...The AG needs to review this case and make it right for the victim and the citizens of Sparks..That goat rope of a DAs office is a disgrace..filled with its own criminals who get away with murder and lies and corruption !!! Adams and his ilk stink up Sparks !

Why would anyone expect anything different: judges that turn child rapist loose to rape others and DAs that refuse to prosecute animal abusers because they don't like the law. Not much of a surprise. The entire lot need to be voted out.

Can't they file an appeal? Criminals can file appeals, so victims should also be allowed to file appeals, especially in a case where it appears the judge just wanted to make someone an example and didn't want to really do the work.

They can find something else to charge the abuser with, something he wasn't charged with initially. That would be a new case, and doesn't come under the "double-jeopardy" standard. He shouldn't be out of the woods yet. If they don't do something, "Hell hath no fury..."

It sounds like Judge McCarthy dismissed the case, not because of legal cause, but to punish the Assistant District Attorney. Maybe there should be a Judicial Hall of Infamy. The charter members will be Judge Jennifer Elliot, Judge Brent Adams and Judge Barbara McCarthy.

This "judge" probably couldn't tell you what the difference is between, Without or with Prejudice. She has no legal training, education or otherwise. That's why Nevada needs to make it a law, that all judges need to have passed the Bar and have a Law License. To many times judges like her and Tatro in Carson City, screw a case up due to their decisions on evidence, witnesses, etc and now the victims get VICTIMIZED twice. Once by the criminal and once by the courts.
