Fraternal Order of Police officials spoke out last month regarding their displeasure with the punishment Judge David Abruzzo issued to a man who had not only been convicted of burglary and theft, but also had assaulted a corrections officer, and tried to escape from deputies while being transported.

Judge David Abruzzo sentenced Thomas J. Reddy to a year in prison and gave him credit for 217 days of time served, meaning he will only serve an additional 148 days in jail.
