Worst Person in the World

District Judge Fred Gannett for allowing a hit-and-run driver who slammed into a bike rider to get off easy with a ridiculously light plea bargained sentence.

Gannett then sentenced Erzinger on the two remaining misdemeanor charges. He received a year’s probation on the careless-driving charge and 90 days in county jail for failing to report the accident. That last was suspended until Jan. 1, 2011, at which time Erzinger has to submit to the court his choice of one of two options: 60 days’ work-release, or 45 days of charity work that will require him to leave Denver and take a leave of absence from his job.
