State won't prosecute poodle walker

UPI News Service, 10/21/2008 

The state of Maryland has realized it's not worth prosecuting a woman for letting her miniature poodles walk on a neighbor's lawn, her attorney says.

The Calvert County, Md., prosecutor's office has let the case against Linda May Johnson, 47, slide onto the inactive docket after her neighbors, a Maryland State Police sergeant and his wife, pressed charges against her for the alleged errant poodle walking, The Washington Post said Tuesday.

"Let's face it. This is two poodles being walked through the neighborhood," John Erly, Johnson's attorney, told the Post. "They realized it wasn't a case that was worth their time."

Assistant State's Attorney Andrew Rappaport declined to comment on the case, but earlier in court he said the state would dismiss the charges against Johnson in six months if she avoided trouble didn't contact the neighbors, James and Jennifer Barth, the newspaper said.

Johnson, who has since moved to New Hampshire, told the Post she was contemplating filing a formal complaint against the state police and indicated she interviewing lawyers to sue the Barths.

The couple did not return the newspaper's call for comment.
