Dear D.A. Wolfson & Deputy D.A. Bernie Zadrowski:
We, the undersigned, request that you urge the Honorable Jerome Tao to administer the maximum penalty upon Jeremy Espiritu. Mr. Espiritu's actions not only show that he has a disregard for animals, but it also indicates that he may very well be a danger to himself and society. Thank you for your work on this matter!
