Prosecutor should do his job

To the editor:

In response to the article on the front page last week: maybe if Houghton county had a prosecutor that would do his job and not just settle for plea deals and misdemeanors, the jail wouldn’t be overcrowded.

Send these felons to prison instead of the slap on the wrist and 30 days in the Houghton Hilton.

This would also require a judge to reside over a trial more than once every 2 months.

Enough nitpicking of a cop’s arrest process, send these repeat offenders to prison and teach them a lesson, instead of the judge deciding who has less offenses in the past year and letting them back on the street. #fedup
