Debbie August Case Dismissed
The last charge against Debbi August has been dismissed. I've questioned earlier here whether this case should have been brought before the court to begin with. So, her life can try to go back on track but it will never be the same. She's supposedly spent her retirement account money on legal fees. This kinds stuff really burns me up, especially when I hear, as I have so many times, "Let's just take it to court and see what the judge says....", like it's just some casual trip to the grocery store, or some such. Seems to me I've heard such comments a number of times, often by lawyers, as one would expect.
But it's not just lawyers that feel that way. A lot of people who should know better don't realize, not just what a disruption in one's life going to court can be, but the financial and personal cost of such actions as well. Filing criminal or civil charges against someone should never be taken lightly.
