    “Woith has been found guilty of felony second-degree assault, third-degree battery, first-degree terroristic threatening, failure to comply with sex offender requirements and contempt” why is he walking the streets? My guess would be hes a Cash cow for the County’s “Fines and Fees” they call it.
