Platte County Prosecutor Eric Zahnd Reverse Your Decision & Charge Thomas Newhouse with animal cruelty
Jul 20, 2013 — This is John Cady This is the third time I' have responded to this petition. The first time was two days ago. For some reason the response has not been communicated to the signers of the petition. My response is as follows.
I am not the Platte County prosecutor. I am a private attorney who represents the City of Lake Waukomis. It is not unusual for charges to be initially brought on the Municipal Court level then referred to the county prosecutor for review to determine if more serious state charges should be filed. That has been done in this case. Before I became aware of this petition Before I became aware of the petition, I had already requested that the Platte County prosecutor, Eric Zahnd, Review this case and determine if state charges should be filed. Eric Zahnd agreed to do so. As city attorney I am not authorized to file charges for anything but meniscalordinance violations. John Cady
