An 18-year-old Kalispell man was given a three-year deferred sentence Thursday in Flathead District Court after pleading guilty to assaulting a police officer.

A pair of Kalispell police officers responded to the parking lot of Smith’s on Aug. 19, 2012, after receiving a report of an intoxicated pedestrian who had been seen lying in the road. When they arrived, they found Dawson Baer sitting on a pallet of water bottles.

            DJ Jackson, that is not true. Example; (P officer) Sir I need you to exit the vehicle so that i can search it.
            (citizen) If I am not under arrest than I am free to leave and you may NOT search my vehicle w/o a warrant.

            So, MTcowboy, I won't mess with you anymore. I see that you are too full of misguided hatred towards things and people and situations that you are ignorant to or frustrated with... You "believe" that I am the minority here and think I should leave. Card carrying member? Idiot, that sounds like some rhetoric you heard on Fox (fake)News. I love this country and the freedom that it affords all, You sound like a racist bigot that is full of blame and resentment. Cowboy, you should seriously consider moving to North Korea, I think it would be a good fit for you and your totalitarian views.

            Actually he was not charged with anything other then supposedly assault. And a store open to the public is not private unless posted. I do not see anything saying he was intoxicated They can not force an individual to talk to them unless a crime was committed

            One other thing I will bring up, under Montana state law, it is illegal to refuse to follow a peace officers orders.

            Actually Judge, he was on private property, and it was called in as an intoxicated individual. It is illegal to be intoxicated in public. So there was probable cause to talk to him, to determine if he was in fact intoxicated, his mistake was fighting with the officers. He is actually lucky, he didn't get hard time, or get dead.

            I find it interesting how any of you profess to be knowledgeable on this subject when in fact they say that he was sitting on a pallet. What law did he break? I thought he had a right to be in a public place just as any of you. What was the probable cause? Does any one really have to give a cop an answer if there is no crime being committed? How stupid are you sheepole

            Valley Gal. Two major components of a criminal investigation are motive and opportunity. I realize that the motive to commit this crime belong to your cousin alone. That said, had be been kept in jail opportunity would have been removed. I believe Judge Ortley has at least a partial resonsibility for giving your cousin the opportunity.

            Sorry about that Cowboy,

            I did mis-read your message, I thought it was addressed to me, now that I re-read it, I see it was directed to another, my bad.

            DJ.... you sound like someone I would like to know! I think we share the same sentiments regarding crime & punishment. Maybe lunch sometime may be in the cards. I hope you realize the comments I made were directed to the "cannibis squad" and "ignorancebuster", not you. Maybe another voice will help the state to realize we have a serious problem.

            Cowboy,

            Nope, not a member of the ACLU, Yup, I support the death penalty 100% and have spoke and presented my ideas on how it should be implemented to both the Legislature as well as the Supreme Court of Montana. I won't take a case such as the double murder case, because I could not honestly defend a person like that.

            As a private practice lawyer, I have the ability to pick and choose the cases I represent.

            ignorancebuster, it is people like you who are to blame for what we as a society are fighting right now! I'll bet you are a card carrying member of the ACLU, and you subscribe to the idea that everyone has the same rights. Well, my friend(sic), YOU are WRONG! Once you break one of society's rules, ie:break the law, you forfeit those rights, PERIOD! Are you going to sit there and tell me, that a piece of sh.. who killed his estranged wife and her daughter on Christmas day a year or so ago, as well as anyone else who commits a serious crime, has the same rights as you and me??? I think NOT! He should be marched right out to the gallows in the town square, and PROMPTLY HUNG! I, for one, detest the fact, that some of my taxes, which I pay willingly, are going to support this spineless piece of crap, and others just like him, just so they can eat 3 square meals a day, have access to a free education(so he can figure out how to manipulate the law) and file appeal, after appeal, at MY-OUR expense! There are so many innocent and hard working people, law abiding people, who cannot afford an education, or even a roof over their heads, let alone a good meal, and I don't see you defending them.REALLY???? I WILL NOT LEAVE, and I believe YOU are the minority here, so why don't YOU leave! Let those of us who believe in justice do our jobs. I stand by my statement here and as stated previously!

            But,

            I will agree with your statement partially, Many consider me arrogant. It does always amaze me, when it is one of my clients, that calls me arrogant, especially when I am his/her only hope from landing their stupid butt in jail for committing illegal acts.!

            RealDeal,

            As a Defense lawyer that has practice for over 20 years now, I am not ignorant, I have defended a lot of people that belong to the Cannabis squad and kept quite a few of them from going to prison. but the cannabis squad consists of those who believe that cannabis is a "Harmless Drug" but in fact, it is not.

            Please expand on your arrogance and ignorance and explain to us what the "Cannabis" squad is.

            You people are so predictable.

            Sound like the local gestapo was ready to murder him for sitting on a wood pallet, good job escalating the situation idiots, aren't the guys suppose to be peacekeepers? Why are cops allowed to have cattle prods and beat people for not telling them their name? Sounds like this guy was having a bad day and the local goon patrol made it worse real fast.

            Maybe if we didn't put people in cages who didn't hurt anyone (non-violent offenders)(cannabis), we would have more room for real criminals....assault, robbery, rape,pedophilia, like that priest that should be locked up.

            Well, thank your god that the DIL lynch mob isn't in control of the courts. Some of these folks actually believe that prison helps rehabilitate criminals.

            Obviously, the incompetence of the KPD and the county attorney contributed to the deferred sentence. An officer is injured in the line of duty and both him and the perp go to the hospital, but no blood or tox screen is done to prove this kid was drunk or high? Then they have to resort to calling him a liar just because the taser wasn't effective. They are lucky the case wasn't thrown out.

            Well, first, we have to re-build the gallows in every, and I mean EVERY town square, bring back swift and severe justice, by having public hangings of those certain individuals who have committed the most heinous of crimes............and Screw you ACLU, they do not have any civil rights, they FORFEITED them when they committed their crimes against society!!!! That, folks, will help to bring down the prison population, allowing for more of the types in question here, to be incarcerated and hopefully rehabilitated. This will also help to serve as a deterrent for "future" crimes, as it will show those so inclined as to NOT fit in to society, that their BS WILL NOT be tolerated., and therefore bringing the need for incarceration in the first place! Remember......"an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" NOT my words, but those of the heavenly father, who created all of of us, and is shaking his head wondering why we have forgotten. In order to repair the problem, we have to start with the "foundation", NOT the roof.

            You want more jail time? Then start ponying up and paying the piper folks, build more prison space, pay the price to build the space, virtually every prison in this country is overfull, so there ain't no place to put the bad guys any longer!

            Mtdawg...I assume you are talking about the double murder from a couple of years ago? My family members! You can not blame Judge Ortley for the actions of my cousin. There is a lot more details to that case that were never presented to the public. Everybody is always so quick to criticize others but yet I see none of you running against these judges or county attorneys! If you think you can do a better job feel free to get r done!

            Don't be too surprised, this is the same judge who released the guy o/r so he could go tie up his ex wife then murder his father and brother. I think he's trying for some sort of record.

            You've got yo be kidding me! Deferred, no evaluation? This is the reason we are having the gun control discussions. This looney should be out service until deemed reasonable to enter society again. What if he now breaks into your house and then shoots up a local school? Will we blame the judge or the stolen gun?
