Your Turn: Your Feedback On Sanderson, Curley & Turin Town Justice


A Gouverneur woman who left her infant son unattended for hours each day to work in Jefferson County pleaded guilty to reduced charges. Mercedes Sanderson will likely be sentenced to probation:


This woman should not be allowed to be around children including her own. Probation is unbelievable!

Heather Whiteford

This whole story sounds like she, the lawyer and judge are on crack. That woman should be locked up until that child turns 18.

We really need to take more responsibility for the young mothers whose husbands are in Iraq and have no other family around. There needs to be a program funded by the government to do home visits.

One of St. Lawrence County's assistant public defenders is calling it quits.  Chris Curley says there are more cases to handle and many of the cases require more work:


I have seen Chris Curley in action and have seen how overworked he is. It will be sad for the Public Defender's Office to lose such a FINE attorney.

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says two members of the Turin town board filed a false report with the state about the town's justice court. Justice James Chase acknowledged problems in his record keeping, but said he never received proper training:


When you accept a position on a board you should know what is included in the job. Making excuses now doesn't cut it.

Edward Holder Jr.

Record keeping is not rocket science. It's very easy to keep some sort of record of your transactions, whether you were trained or not.
