Vail Daily letter: Would like to meet
Ryan Summerlin January 8, 2014
This 41-year resident of Eagle County recently had his first experience with the Eagle County Probation Department. Their abuse of power and ignoring their own policies was a real eye-opener for me.
And our Judge Sullivan’s apathy about learning how the probation department was operating was disappointing. I applied for a hearing (at my expense) to help inform the judge about our probation department’s actions in my case. Judge Sullivan denied my request for a hearing. My lawyer told me it was “unusual” to be denied a hearing.
I am inviting our county’s probation department to schedule a meeting with me to discuss how they have handled my case. I would bring one or two members of the press with me to that meeting.
