CONVICTED: Was justice served?
more information on voting
When you vote, you are voting on whether or not the punishment fit the crime, NOT on the severity of the case itself. If you feel the sentence was very weak, you would vote 1 star. If you feel the sentence was very strong, you would vote 5 stars.
Please vote honestly and realistically. These ratings will be used a a tool for many future programs, including a "Peoples Choice" of best and worst sentencing, DA and judge "report cards", and more. Try to resist the temptation to vote 1 star on every case, even if you feel that 100 years in prison isnt enough.

A Sydney dog breeder has been convicted of 39 animal cruelty charges. The RSPCA brought the action against Carol MacIver after almost 30 dogs were found in squalid conditions at her home in Sydney's south-west in April last year.
The Downing Centre Local Court was told the border terriers and irish wolfhounds were found in small wire cages contaminated with waste, and with little drinking water.
In court on March 15, 2004, MacIver was found guilty of 20 charges and pleaded guilty to another 19. The charges relate to failing to provide the dogs with adequate food, exercise and veterinary care.
She will face a sentencing hearing in May, 2004.
|A MAGISTRATE has imposed fines and court costs that totalled almost $85,000 on a couple prosecuted by the RSPCA over the mistreatment of dogs owned by them.|
Albury regional RSPCA inspector Lionel Smith laid five charges relating to 41 dogs against the couple living at Curlwaa, near Wentworth.
The charges involved dogs seized on December 16 last year after five RSPCA inspectors, two vets, two assistants and two council rangers attended the property where the dogs were kept.
A total of 132 dogs were checked by the vets with notes kept on the condition of each of them.
Magistrate Terry Lucas last week imposed fines and costs on the couple a total of $77,910.80, with legal costs of $7000.
They are restricted to having 10 dogs and three cats each for the next five years and supply a vets report on each animal bi-annually.
Both the woman, 58, and her partner, 62, were convicted on animal cruelty charges and put on 12-month bonds.
