Judge rejects Bennett plea

Monday, Oct. 20, 2014 — A Susanville man may now face trial for 65 counts of animal cruelty after a judge rejected his plea agreement.

Dwight Alan Bennett, 62, appeared in Lassen Superior Court on Tuesday, Oct. 15 for sentencing, however, the matter for discussion centered on a tentative ruling posted by former presiding, now visiting judge Stephen Bradbury.

The tentative ruling, dated Oct. 15, said, “After evaluation of the underlying circumstances and the extent of the grossly inhumane treatment of the large number of horses found living in possession of the defendant and reasonable inferences to be drawn from the large number of deceased horses upon and near his property, the court finds the agreement between the parties for 120 days of jail incarceration for the defendant is not within a sentence range just and appropriate for his conduct.”

Lassen National Forest to lift fire restrictions Oct. 20

Monday, Oct. 20, 2014 — Changing conditions are prompting Lassen National Forest officials to lift fire restrictions as of Monday, Oct. 20.

This means forest visitors may once again have campfires outside of developed campgrounds and recreation sites, although campfire permits are still required. Fire officials remind forest visitors to keep campfires small and be sure they are dead out and cold to the touch before leaving camp.

The lifting of restrictions also rescinds the “hoot owl” provision, which means chainsaws no longer have a 1 p.m. shutdown time and may now be used all day on Lassen National Forest lands. Woodcutters must have valid woodcutting permits, and their chainsaws must be equipped with spark arresters.
