Real jail for spitting on Probation Ofc.
Man gets 4 to 10 years for spitting at officer
Thursday, April 05, 2007
By Chico Harlan, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Steven Peek, charged with spitting last June at his probation officer during a hearing, was sentenced today to four to 10 years in prison -- a punishment more stringent than suggested in sentencing guidelines.
Allegheny County Judge Jeffrey A. Manning explained his reasoning:
Mr. Peek, evaluated by a doctor, was said to be narcissistic beyond the point of rehabilitation.
He'd shown as much in the sentencing proceeding, during which he represented himself, and forced two witnesses through 20 minutes of nonsensical questioning.
And, Judge Manning reasoned, because Mr. Peek was unlikely to be reformed by the criminal justice system, he instead should be "incapacitated."
Mr. Peek, a sex offender, has a history of crime and violence. During a hearing last June, he cursed and spit at county probation officer Karen Ollis after a judge revoked his probation and ordered him to be taken into custody.

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

Where can we get about 10,000 more judges like that?"I'm not a coward,
I've just never been tested
I'd like to think that if I was,
I would pass"
