THERE ARE TWO OTHER CASES WITH THAT ONE. IT IS 20-887 AND 20-888.

RICARDO, WE NEED TO SWEAR YOU IN. PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME FOR THE

RECORD. >> RICARDO PELLOT. >> DO YOU SWEAR OR AFFIRM THE

TESTIMONY YOU ARE ABOUT TO GIVE WILL BE THE TRUTH? >> YES.

>> MA'AM, WILL YOU PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME FOR THE RECORD.

DO YOU SWEAR OR AFFIRM THE TESTIMONY YOU ARE ABOUT TO GIVE WILL BE THE TRUTH?

THANK YOU. >> MA'AM, YOU CAN GO TO THE PODIUM.

>> OKAY. >> SPECIAL MAGISTRATE, CAN I PROCEED WITH QUESTIONING AND

OFFICER PELLOT WITH 20-847? >> FRAN ROSS: YES, PLEASE. >> GOOD MORNING.

>> GOOD MORNING. >> WERE YOU ASSIGNED TO THAT CASE NUMBER I JUST READ?

>> YES. >> WHEN WAS THAT CASE INITIATED?

>> JULY 4TH, 2020. >> WHAT WERE THE NATURE OF THE VIOLATIONS YOU OBSERVED AND

NOTED ON THAT DATE? >> IT WAS A NO RABIES, NO CITY REGISTRATION, ANIMAL RESTRAINT.

DOGS AREN'T ALLOWED TO BE IN BOXES. >> ARE THOSE THE CITATIONS

THAT ARE NOTED ON THE AGENDA THIS MORNING? >> YES.

THREE CITATIONS FOR THREE DOGS. >> DID YOU MAKE CONTACT WITH

THE RESPONDENT ON THAT DATE? >> I DID SPEAK WITH HER. SHE JUST CAME TO THE DOOR AND SHE CALLED HER SON. HE'S THE ONE THAT ACTUALLY OWNS THE DOGS.

SHE LIVES IN THE HOUSEHOLD AND SHE IS AS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DOGS AS THE ACTUAL OWNER.

>> CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT BEHAVIOR YOU NOTED WITH REGARD OR WHAT YOU SAW WITH REGARD TO

THE ANIMAL RESTRAINT COUNT IN PARTICULAR? >> YEAH.

THE CAGES WERE WHAT WE CONSIDERED HOT BOXES. THAT MEANS THEY HAVE CHAIN LINK, BUT SEPARATED BY PLYWOOD SO THE AIR CAN'T FLOW THROUGH.

I BELIEVE THE CAGES ARE A LITTLE SMALL, BUT HE DOES KEEP THEM CLEAN.

>> SO BASED ON WHAT YOU OBSERVED THEY WERE NOT IN COMPLIANCE WITH CITY CODE?

[00:05:06]

>> NO, AT THAT TIME THEY WEREN'T. >> AND NO ONE AT THAT TIME WAS ABLE TO PRODUCE ANY EVIDENCE OF RABIES VACCINATION OR PROPER REGISTRATION, CORRECT?

>> CORRECT. >> HAVE YOU SINCE RECEIVED ANY UPDATES ON THAT?

>> NO. THIS IS ACTUALLY THE SECOND TIME WE HAVE WRITTEN CITATIONS BECAUSE THE FIRST TIME WE CAME HERE AND SAID HE WAS SUPPOSED TO PAY HIM, BUT THEY SENT US

TO COURT, SAINT LUCIE COUNTY COURT -- >> I AM GOING TO INTERRUPT YOU. I WANT US TO FOCUS ON THIS PARTICULAR INCIDENT.

DID YOU TAKE ANY PICTURES THAT DAY? >> YEAH.

I DON'T HAVE THEM WITH ME RIGHT NOW. >> IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU

WANT TO SAY ABOUT THE INCIDENT? >> YEAH.

I DID SPEAK TO HER SON ON THE PHONE AND I MADE HIM AWARE OF EVERYTHING HE NEEDED TO DO TO CORRECT THE SITUATION. HE DID REMOVE THE PLYWOOD BETWEEN THE DOG -- BETWEEN THE CAGES. THE CAGES ARE STILL A LITTLE SMALL.

THERE IS A CERTAIN LENGTH THEY HAVE TO BE DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT OF THE DOGS.

>> SO THE CAGES ARE STILL TOO SMALL. >> THEY ARE A LITTLE TOO

SMALL. >> IN PROPORTION TO THE WEIGHT OF THE DOGS?

>> YES. >> ANYTHING ELSE? >> NO, THAT'S IT.

>> SPECIAL MAGISTRATE, IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND BECAUSE ESSENTIALLY THE THREE DOGS WERE ADDRESSED AT THE SAME TIME, BUT WE CAN DO ONE CASE FOR EACH DOG, BUT IF WE CAN DO ALL THREE THROUGH THE OFFICER BEFORE THE RESPAWN -- RESPONDENT SO IT IS CHANNELLY THE -- IT IS ESSENTIALLY THE SAME. I WANTED TO MAKE SURE ALL

THREE GET THE SAME. >> LET ME GO IN ORDER HERE. OKAY.

SO ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER PELLOTT, THE TESTIMONY IN THE CASE OF 20-847, IS THAT THE

SAME TESTIMONY YOU GIVE IN REGARD TO 20-887 AND 20-888? >> YES.

IS THERE ANYTHING DIFFERENT ABOUT THOSE TWO CASES THAT FOLLOW, OR IS IT JUST THAT

THERE WERE THREE DOGS. >> THREE DOGS. >> SO ONE CASE PER DOG?

>> YES. >> THREE DOGS, THREE CAGES? >> YES.

ACTUALLY ONE BIG CAGE THEY DO SIDED -- DIVIDED INTO THREE. >> I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING

FURTHER EXCEPT REBUT TALL. >> YOU'VE BEEN SWORN? >> WE HAVE WRITTEN TO THE COURT AND THEY DISMISSED THESE CASES OF MINE. THE FIRST TIME WE WENT I SIGNED SOME CITATIONS FOR THE DOG. SO THIS TIME HE DIDN'T -- HE ASKED ME IN A WAY THAT'S, YOU KNOW, I DIDN'T LIKE TO SIGN THE PAPER.

I TOLD HIM I WASN'T GOING TO SIGN NOTHING. THOSE ARE MY SON'S DOG.

MY SON HAD JUST LEFT AND HE -- IT SEEMED LIKE EVERY TIME I AM HOME BY MYSELF HE WOULD COME AND BANG ALL ON THE DOOR. I TOLD HIM THAT THOSE ARE MY -- WHEN WE WENT BEFORE THE JUDGE THEY GAVE MY SON 25 AND 75 TO PAY IN 90 DAYS, FOR EACH DOG HE PAID 25 AND THEY DISMISSED IT FOR ME. HE SHOULD BE TALKING TO MY SON INSTEAD OF TALKING TO ME.

I NO LONGER HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS CASE. HE GOT THE THREE CAGES.

THEY ARE TOGETHER, BUT THEY GOT A ROOM IN THE BACK AND THEY ARE UP OFF THE GROUND WHERE IF IT RAINS IT WON'T GET WET. IN THE BACK OF THE -- IN THE BACK THEY HAVE A PLACE TO GO IN THE DAYTIME. THEY ARE UP FRONT AND THEY ARE FENCED IN AND THEY CAN BREATHE. I DON'T UNDERSTAND -- I DON'T KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE REGISTRATION OR NOTHING LIKE THAT.

HE HAVE TO TALK TO MY SON ABOUT THAT. OTHER THAN THAT I JUST DON'T -- THEY TOLD ME TO -- MY SON TO PAY -- HE HAD TO PAY FOR THAT AND HE TOLD ME I DIDN'T HAVE TO GO TO COURT FOR THIS. MR. RICARDO, THAT'S YOUR NAME? HE CAME AROUND TO THE HOUSE AND HE TALK TO ME AND HE TRIED TO DEMAND ME TO DO THIS AND DO THAT. I TOLD HIM I WASN'T GONNA DO IT. MY SON GOT OFF BEFORE 5:00. IF HE WANTED ANYTHING TO DISCUSS WITH MY SON HE SHOULD TALK TO HIM. IF NOT, THEN I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT. ALL I CAN TELL YOU IS THAT I SIGNED THE FIRST CITATION, BUT

[00:10:06]

THEY KEPT COMING BACK AND THIS WAS IN JULY IN 2019. ALL THIS TIME WE THOUGHT ALL THIS WAS TAKEN CARE OF, AND MY SON PAID OFF THE DEBT ON THE 10TH ON 10-20-19.

THEY DISMISSED ME FROM COURT. OTHER THAN THAT I DON'T KNOW WHY I AM DOWN HERE.

>> YOU ARE JUDY STONE, CORRECT? >> YES.

>> SHE IS THE OWNER OF THE DOGS? >> SHE IS ON THE PROPERTY.

>> AND DOES YOUR SON RESIDE THERE? >> HE GOT A ROOM IN THE BACK

OF THE HOUSE. >> NO, SPECIAL MAGISTRATE UNLESS THEY WANT TO ADD

ANYTHING. >> JUST A QUESTION. WE DO NOT HAVE A RECORD OF ANY CITY REGISTRATION OR RABIES BEING ISSUED. DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO

PROVIDE? >> I DIDN'T KNOW I HAD TO ASK MY SON ABOUT THAT.

I ASKED HIM AND HE GAVE ME THIS PAPERWORK RIGHT HERE. THIS IS ALL THAT I GOT.

>> SPECIAL MAGISTRATE, WE HOLD ALL PARTIES THAT ARE ADULTS THAT RESIDE IN THE HOUSE AS JOINT OWNERS. WE DON'T SPECIFY WHICH ADULT OWNS IT.

IF THERE IS AN ADULT IN THE HOUSE THEY ARE JOINT ANIMALS OF THE -- JOINT OWNERS OF THE ANIMALS AND RESPONSIBLE. THE INDIVIDUAL PRESENT WHEN WE DELIVER THE CITATION IS THE

PERSON WHO RECEIVES THE CITATIONS. >> MA'AM, YOU HAVE NO

INFORMATION ABOUT WHETHER THEY HAVE BEEN VACCINATED? >> NO, I DON'T.

MR. RICARDO CAME TO MY HOUSE LESS THAN 30 MINUTES AGO AND I TOLD HIM HE HAD TO TALK TO MY SON ABOUT IT WHEN HE COME OUT THERE. HE SEEMED LIKE HE ALWAYS WAIT UNTIL MY SON GOES TO WORK WHEN HE BANGS ON THE DOOR. IF HE WANTS TO, MY SON HAS HIS PHONE NUMBER AND I CALL MY SON SO HE CAN TALK TO HIM. HE WON'T PICK UP THE PHONE.

THIS IS WHERE I AM AT TODAY. >> WELL, IF YOUR SON HAS EVIDENCE THAT RABIES SHOTS HAVE BEEN GIVEN HE NEEDS TO BRING THEM IN OR GIVEN THEM TO YOU TO BRING IN.

>> WELL, THAT'S HIS RESPONSIBILITY. HE DIDN'T GIVE ME.

THIS IS ALL HE GAVE ME. I DON'T KNOW WHETHER OR NOT HE HAD THEJ REGISTERED -- HAD

THEM REGISTERED OR NOT. >> CAN YOU SHOW IT TO -- I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE'S GOT.

IF YOU CAN JUST LOOK AT IT AND SEE IF IT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH TODAY.

>> THESE ARE JUST PAPERS FROM SAINT LUCIE COURT. >> OKAY IT IS A PREVIOUS

CASE. >> TODAY IS THE DAY YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO BRING IN

EVIDENCE THAT THESE VACCINATIONS -- >> THAT'S ALL HE GAVE ME, YOUR

HONOR. >> WELL, YOU NEED TO TELL HIM THAT I FIND THAT THE VIOLATION STILL EXISTS. FAILURE TO PAY THE FINE WILL RESULT IN THE CITATION BEING

FORWARDED TO THE COUNTY COURT SYSTEM. >> SAY THAT AGAIN, PLEASE.

>> IF HE DOESN'T -- HE NEEDS -- HE HAS SHOWN NO EVIDENCE THAT HE HAS DONE WHAT HE IS REQUIRED TO DO. I AM GOING TO FIND THAT THE VIOLATION DOES EXIST AND IF HE DOESN'T ADDRESS IT AND PAY THE FINE IT WILL BE FORWARDED TO THE COUNTY COURTS.

>> ALL RIGHT. >> SPECIAL MAGISTRATE JUST TO CONFIRM THE RULING APPLIES TO

THE THREE CASES? >> THE THREE CASES BECAUSE THEY ARE -- EXACTLY.

PELL

>> THAT WAS IT. >> OKAY. I DIDN'T KNOW.

THANK YOU FOR COMING IN, MA'AM. >> THANK YOU.

>> YES. I ADMIT THAT MY DOGS, THEY ARE REAL YOUNG SO THEY ARE LOOSE AND THEY GOT OUT A COUPLE TIMES. SINCE THEN WE SECURED THE MAIN FENCE AND I SECURED THE DOG KENNEL WHICH I GOT PICTURES OF AND WE REDID THE DOG KENNEL SO THERE IS NO WAY TO HAVE THEM GET OUT UNLESS WE LET THEM OUT.

THEY GOT THEIR RABIES SHOTS AND THEIR VACCINATIONS AND REGISTRATION AND EVERYTHING.

THE ONLY WATER I SAW AVAILABLE DURING MINE WAS ACTUALLY A BASIN THAT WAS CATCHING DRIPS FROM A LEAKING CEILING. THERE WAS FECES THROUGH THE ENTIRE HOUSE INCLUDING ON THE BEDDING AND ON THE FURNITURE AND ON THE KITCHEN CABINETS. IT WAS ON THE COUNTER TOPS.

THERE WAS NO SURFACE THAT WAS NOT CONTAMINATED WITH FECES. THE HOUSE WAS INFESTED WITH ROACHES AND BUGS. THERE WAS SOME DRIED FOOD ON A PLATE I THINK ON THE BACK PORCH. THERE WAS NO FOOD BEING PROVIDED AND THERE WAS NO CARE OR SHELTER OR ANYTHING AND THERE WERE 20 CATS COUNTED THAT DAY THAT WERE REMOVED

FROM THE PROPERTY. THEY ARE CRATING UP THE CATS. >> ANYTHING ELSE THAT EITHER

OF YOU WANT TO SAY? >> I MEAN, THE PICTURES PRETTY MUCH SHOW EVERYTHING.

>> SO SHE VOLUNTARILY AGREED TO ACCEPT THE CITATIONS? >> YES.

THE TESTIMONY YOU ARE ABOUT TO GIVE WILL BE THE TRUTH? >> YES.

>> THANK YOU. >> GOOD MORNING AGAIN, SPECIAL MAGISTRATE.

THIS IS CASE NUMBER 20-883. IT IS 2608, SOUTH U.S. HIGHWAY 1.

THE CASE WAS INITIATED ON APRIL 24TH OF THIS YEAR FOR SECTION 22-187, SUBSECTION 13, LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE, SECTION 1646, 1647, 1648 FOR OUTSIDE STORAGE.

IT IS REQUESTED THEY REMOVE FROM THE CURBS AND REMOVE DEAD DEBRIS FROM THE LOT.

REMOVE AND BRING IN TIRES, TOOLS, BUCKET, PILLOWS, BLANKETS, CLOTHES, TRASH AND OTHER DEBRIS FROM THE PROPERTY. THE CITY IS REQUESTING THAT THE -- THE CITY REQUESTS IF THE SPECIAL MAGISTRATE FINDS VIOLATIONS THE VIOLATOR BE GIVEN 30 DAYS TO COMPLY OR A FINE OF $50 A DAY ASSESSED. IT IS NOTED THAT THERE HAS

[00:50:04]

BEEN SOME WORK TO THE PROPERTY. THE LANDSCAPING IMMEDIATELY AROUND THE BUILDING HAS BEEN TAKEN CARE OF, BUT THE VACANT LOT THAT IS ATTACHED STILL NEEDS TO BE MOWED AND HAVE THE DEAD DEBRIS REMOVED. AS FAR AS THE OUTSIDE STORAGE GOES, THERE IS STILL A COUPLE OF TIRES, A CART AND SOME OTHER LITTLE ITEMS. I DO HAVE PHOTOS IN WHICH TO

SUBMIT. >> DID THE RESPONDENT GET A CHANCE TO SEE THOSE PHOTOS

PREVIOUSLY -- PRIOR TO TODAY? >> I DID NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO E-MAIL THEM TO

HER, BUT HEATHER DID YOU? >> NO. >> SO SPECIAL MAGISTRATE UNLESS THE RESPONDENT STIPULATES TO THEM BEING ENTERED, I WOULD HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT BASICALLY SEEING THEM EX-PARTE. SO AT THIS TIME --

>> OKAY. MS. KELLY, THERE ARE PICTURES THEY TOOK, BUT THEY WON'T BE ADMITTED SINCE YOU HAVEN'T HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO LOOK AT THEM FIRST.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND? >> OKAY. WERE THEY JUST TAKEN?

>> SOME OF THEM ARE RECENT. THEY ARE FROM WHEN I OPENED THE CASE AND THROUGH I BELIEVE

IT WAS FRIDAY MY LAST SET. >> OKAY. SO AT THIS TIME I HOLD ON TO THEM. WE ARE ON -- WE ARE NOT GOING TO ADMIT THEM.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANTED TO SAY THOUGH ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR CASE?

>> NO. >> ARE YOU TALKING TO ME? >> YOU CAN -- YES.

YOU CAN GO AHEAD IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY SOMETHING NOW. >> I'M SORRY.

I JUST WANTED TO KNOW, DO THE PICTURES SHOW TIRES ON THE LOT ON THE PROPERTY?

>> SO THE PICTURES ARE NOT IN EVIDENCE. WE ARE NOT --

>> AS -- WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE PICTURES, BUT YOU CAN ASK IF THEY WERE STILL

THERE ON FRIDAY, IF THE TIRES WERE STILL THERE ON FRIDAY. >> YES BECAUSE I WAS PAID TO

HAVE THEM HAULED OUT IS WHY I AM CURIOUS. >> THE DUMPSTER OF TIRES WAS GONE, BUT THERE WAS STILL I THINK ONE OR TWO TIRES LEFT IN FRONT OF THE GARAGE BASE.

>> YEAH. THAT'S GOT TO BE THE GUY NEXT DOOR.

OKAY. I PAY THE GUY. EVERYTHING WAS GONE.

WHATEVER. OKAY. >> WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN?

WHEN WERE THEY REMOVED? >> MAYBE THREE WEEKS AGO? AND THERE WAS NO TIRES IN FRONT OF THE BAY DOORS. I GOT IF TOUCH WITH THE DUMPSTER PEOPLE AND THEY CAME AND TOOK EVERYTHING. AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN TWO TIRES -- I THOUGHT THAT'S WHAT YOU SAID, TWO SHOW UP. I'M A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT THAT.

BECAUSE I HAD THE BUILDING PAINTED AND WE TOOK PICTURES AND THE GENTLEMAN SENT ME

PICTURES AND THERE WAS NO TIRES. >> MS. KELLY, THIS IS PEGGY ARAIS. HAVE YOU HAD A CHANCE TO MEET WITH OFFICER DEBEVEC AT THE

PROPERTY. >> NO, I HAVEN'T. >> WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO DO

THAT? >> OH YES. I WOULD BE WILLING TO SELL IT

IF THERE WAS A BUYER ON IT. BUT HE GOT COVID -- >> THE QUESTION IS ARE YOU

WILLING TO MEET? >> YES. YES.

WITH HEATHER? >> YES. >> YEAH.

>> SPECIAL MAGISTRATE, I THINK WHAT STAFF WILL REQUEST IS WE HAVE TO POSTPONE THIS FOR 30 DAYS, ALLOW MS. KELLY THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET ON SITE WITH THE CODE OFFICER SO THAT EVERYTHING CAN BE FULLY IDENTIFIED OF WHAT STILL NEEDS TO BE DONE.

>> OKAY. THAT SOUNDS REASONABLE TO ME. OKAY.

IF YOU CAN MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO MEET WITH HET EITHER -- WITH HEATHER AND THE CASE WILL

BE POSTPONED UNTIL THE NEXT HEARING DATE. >> IT WILL BE POSTPONED TO THE SECOND HEARING IN NOVEMBER. OF COURSE IF IT IS IN COMPLIANCE BEFORE THAT WE

DON'T NEED THE SECOND HEARING. >> DID YOU HEAR ALL THAT.

>> YES, I DID. IS HEATHER THERE OR DO I CALL HER?

>> MA'AM, I AM SITTING HERE, BUT I CALL YOU AFTER THIS AND WE WILL -- WHEN WE GET OUT OF

HERE WE CAN MAKE ARRANGEMENTS AFTER THE FACT. >> ALL RIGHT.

SOUNDS GREAT. >> HEATHER, THERE WAS A SECOND CASE, 20-970.

IS THAT ANYTHING THAT IS DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE JUST DISCUSSED? DO YOU WANT TO ADDRESS THAT AT THE SAME TIME WHEN YOU MEET WITH HER?

>> WE CAN DO THAT AT THE SAME TIME BECAUSE I BELIEVE THE ONLY THING LEFT WITH THIS ONE WAS THE SIGN OUT BY U.S. 1 WHERE SHE WAS STILL TRYING TO GET SOMEBODY TO --

>> SPECIAL MAGISTRATE WE REQUEST 20-970 BE CONTINUED TO THE SECOND MEETING AS WELL TO ALLOW THE OWNER AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET WITH THE CODE OFFICER.

>> SO 20-0883 AND 20-0970 WILL BOTH BE POSTPONED. >> THANK YOU, MA'AM.

>> THANK YOU. >> AND THANK YOU, MS. KELLY. OFFICER DEBEVEC WILL BE IN

[00:55:03]

TOUCH WITH YOU AFTER THE HEARING TODAY. >> THANK YOU.

I APPRECIATE YOUR HELP. BYE-BYE. >> BYE-BYE.

>> I THINK -- ARE THERE ANY OTHER CASES TO BE CALLED OR PHONE HEARINGS?

>> NOT THAT I KNOW OF. COLLEEN, WE GOT THEM ALL? >> I HAVE EVERYTHING THAT'S ON

HERE. >> ALL RIGHT. >> THEN WE WOULD JUST ASK SPECIAL MAGISTRATE THAT WE HAVE A READING AS TO HOW THE INDIVIDUALS WHO FAILED TO

APPEAR TODAY WERE NOTIFIED. >> OKAY. COLLEEN WILL DO THAT.

>> FOR CASES REQUIRING A HEARING PER STATE STATUTE OUT 16212, A NOTICE OF HEARING WAS SENT TO THE VIOLATOR CERTIFIED MAIL. IF THE GREEN CARD IS RETURNED SIGNED IT IS PLACED IN THE FILE. IF THE GREEN CARD IS RETURNED UNSIGNED OR UNCLAIMED AN AFFIDAVIT OF MAILING WITH A NOTICE OF HEARING ENCLOSED IS SENT TO THE VIOLATOR REGULAR U.S. MAIL. 10 DAYS PRIOR TO THE HEARING A NOTICE OF HEARING IS POSTED ON THE BULLETIN BOARD IN CITY HALL.

THE BULLETIN BOARD IN CITY HALL. >> IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE?

>> JUST ONE QUICK ANNOUNCEMENT, SPECIAL MAGISTRATE.

UNDERSTANDING THIS IS YOUR FIRST HEARING SINCE COVID, IT IS ACTUALLY THE -- IN JULY THE CODE OF ORDINANCES WAS ADOPTED A NEW VERSION OF THE -- A NEW VERSION OF CODE OF ORDINANCES WAS ADOPTED. YOU RECEIVED YOUR BOOK TODAY. YOU WILL SEE A DIFFERENCE IN NUMBERING. IT MIGHT BE -- WE ARE GETTING TO THE PART WHERE CASES WILL COME BEFORE THE SPECIAL MAGISTRATE WITH NEW CODES AND THEY MAY BE IN WITH OLD CODES. YOU MAY SEE A DIFFERENCE IN NUMBERING BECAUSE THE NUMBERS WERE CHANGED AND THE CODE WAS CLEANED UP. THAT'S ALSO FOR THE PUBLIC.

THERE MAY BE ONE CASE WITH THE OLD NUMBERING AND ONE CASE WITH THE NEW NUMBERING.

WE ARE GETTING INTO THE TRANSITION PHASE. JUST AN EXPLANATION WHY THAT

MIGHT OCCUR. >> ALL RIGHT. GREAT.

THANK YOU. ANYTHING ELSE? >> NO, MA'AM.

>> THEN THE HEARING IS ADJOURNED. >> THANK YOU.
