Dear Editor,

In the Oct. 14th Buffalo Bulletin, J. C. Commissioner Bill Novotny pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and attempting to elude the police in Circuit Court.

But in the early hours of July 18th he was also charged with reckless driving and an open container in the vehicle.

The prosecutors dismissed these last two charges. Why?

He was driving in the “wrong” direction and was “impaired.”

He could have taken a “life” or “several lives.” Would he have told the family members “I am so sorry”? I think it would have been a little late for those words.

He should have been prosecuted for all his actions…no exceptions. He broke the law.
