Ivy’s inspection sticker case: DISMISSED!

On 2009-09-14, part two of Ivy’s alleged fake inspection sticker trial was held. The trial lasted less than five minutes: Ivy began making numerous motions, which Judge MacLeod interrupted, explaining he was well familiar with the case, and that the chain of custody of the physical evidence had been tainted—so the case was dismissed. The judge didn’t seem too pleased about the fact that Huckins was standing in for Cunningham as the police prosecutor today, either—the excuse for her absence being that she was at a friend’s wedding(!).
