Judge Michael Cicconetti is known for handing down tough sentences. The Painesville, Ohio Judge dishes out some creative paybacks for crimes. He’s not politically correct and he’s not afraid to use public humiliation in sentencing. His objective is to reduce recidivism.
Alyssa Morrow was served up some of Judge Cicconetti’s justice for animal abuse. Morrow trapped her dog Moose in her house for a week and abandoned him in the squalor she calls a home. He had no way out and was left without food. When he was found, he was just skin and bones.
Judge Cicconetti was furious about this and he wanted to teach this disgusting and heartless woman a lesson she would never forget!
He wanted Alyssa to feel exactly like Moose did. So, he said she could choose between spending 90 days in jail or spending a day at the dump.
“Maybe you should get a little taste of that… I want you to live like Moose, and in order to do that I want you to go down to the county dump… and I want them to find the stinkiest smelliest god-awful odor place they can find in that dump and I want you to sit there for 8 hours tomorrow, to think [about] what you did to that dog while you smell the odor. If you puke, you puke.”
Proving that she is an even bigger idiot than most expected, Alyssa showed up to the dump in a dress and flip flops. As you can see in the video below, she had a nasty job.
He hopes these type of punishments prevent them from committing their crimes again. But, when he is faced with a repeat offender, he brings the hammer down on them.
In the video below, Cicconetti doesn’t hold back with a criminal who threw a puppy out of a 6th floor window. The man had other convictions so Cicconetti threw the book at him and gave him a tongue lashing.
Judge Cicconetti is probably my favorite judge. He’s figured out that public humiliation is sometimes the best sentencing. It not only forces the criminal to consider their actions, but it sets an example for other potential thugs.
