Justice is served in Concord, following arraignment
Saturday January 26, 2013 | By:Gail Ploetz |
My family and I just endured a time of waiting for justice to be served. Month after month, for 6 straight months, I found myself in the town of Concord Court the second Monday of each month, when the district attorney is in town.
As many know, the reason for my attendance at court wasn’t pleasant. In fact, Don and I felt it was nothing but betrayal. However, in the end, justice was served.
Our process started with the Erie County sheriffs, at the Springville Substation. Thankfully, in over 10 years of operation, we have never had reason to be down this road. Timely, polite, patient and professional is how we would describe our experience with the detectives and the Erie County Sheriff’s Department. Hats off, to each and every one on the force. The arrest was made and we were soon on to the next phase: court.
Assistant District Attorney Lilley represented us well. She was the quintessential attorney; professional, informative and knowledgeable. After meeting with ADA Lilley each month, I would go into the court room and wait for our case.
For 6 months, I watched the court clerks, the bailiffs, both Judge Frank and Judge Gibbin and the district attorney do their job, with class. Thank you, to each of these public servants.
I would be amiss not to mention the wonderful team we have at Concord Crest Golf Course. Their dedication is unmatched and, to each and every one of you, thank you.
Thank you, for the support and understanding you showed, during the investigation, arrest and prosecution of the one bad apple. It was appreciated.
Do I wish I didn’t have this experience? Absolutely. However, in the end, ultimately, it was a positive experience, due to the people; our family, our friends, the public servants and our community. Thank you, to you all!
