6C THE PALM BEACH POST SUNDAY, DECEMBER 30, 2001 S C :"1T t overwhelming, deputy says ; DOGFIGHT From 1C - should be dropped for the same reason. He also claims the search warrant was based on an uncor- !l roborated tip. But Alston missed a court appearance ; and the motion was not argued. I A felony charge remains against Frank Huggins, t 27. Huggins did not live at the address 4116 ; Plumosa Road in suburban West Palm Beach and I so the search warrant arguments don't apply to him, ; according to Edmondson. The seventh man charged with a felony in con-; nection to the dogfight had his charges dropped for j a different reason. Oscar Lyden Knowles, 34, origi-l nally was charged with a misdemeanor. In October I 2000, the state attorney's office decided not to prosecute on the misdemeanor and instead charged , Knowles with felony cruelty to animals. But the ; charge was dropped because Knowles was never ! arrested and booked on the felony, allowing the speedy trial limit of 175 days to elapse on the mis-! demeanor charge. Lindsey, again, had to dismiss ! the charges. Of the 55 people charged with misdemeanors, i most made pleas and received probation, Edmond-: son said. Prosecutors had sought jail time, he said. Sheriff s deputies Reginald Mickins, 34, and Al-' ton Harrell, 31, attended the dogfight and were I charged with misdemeanors. Both pleaded guilty to ! attending a dogfight. Edmondson said they were : sentenced to year of probation and community ser-; vice and had to pay a fine to an animal rights orga-; nization. Mickins and Harrell were fired by the sheriffs - office but an internal review board recommended ESTHER IRENE BUFFER AMMONS 84, born in Cement, OK October 3, 1917 and died in Watervliet, Ml on December 26, 2001 .

FUNERAL HOME, WPB in charge of the arrangements. t A felony charge remains against Frank Huggins, 27, who did not live at the address. that they keep their jobs and the sheriff agreed. Kovacs said the whole case was "overwhelming" because of the number of people arrested. Deputies sought the search warrant after hearing complaints from neighbors about loud parties and men walking around with guns. She said she's now aware of the search warrant statute. But she wishes the law could simply be done away with. The dogfight was very organized, she said. It took place in a building the size of a two-car garage and onlookers were packed inside. Some of the $85,000 seized by deputies was eventually forfeited to the sheriffs office and some was returned in settlements with the arrested men, she said. "There was a lot of money being wagered," Kovacs said. The sum didn't surprise Dale Riedel of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which is based in New York. Riedel, who was a police officer for 27 years, is now chief of the humane law enforcement division which investigates 4,000 animal cruelty complaints a year. He said there is "big money" in dogfighting, which is why people attend. New York state has a similar law about search warrants for animal cruelty cases, he said. In New York, the search warrant can't be served after 9 p.m, unless a judge gives permission. FUNERAL NOTICES MAXWELL B. FOSTER formerly of Willimantic, CT and Lake Worth, FL, died in Newton.

J$asi II Re-Investment Coalition and I5I.MARH &RAK? GALLtHIti' Woman may! face murder gem : priest beating The Associated Press PENSACOLA A woman charged with beating a Roman Catholic priest with a cement block could face a murder charge because of his death nearly, 11 months later in Ireland, a prosecutor said. The Rev. Oliver Barrett, a native of Ireland, died Friday at Holy Ghost Missionary College; - in Dublin. He was 81. , Delta Sue Allen, 33, was accused of attacking Barrett on Feb. 5 at St. Anne's Church :in Brownsville, a Pensacola suburb. He was beaten two days after giving Allen money when she pd him a fake story about a, sick child. She claimed she need,ed the money because her 6-year-pld daughter needed a kidney transplant, said parishioner Ruth Burnett. . . Police said there was no such child and that Allen had been using the story to scam churched in the Pensacola area. Burnett said she never asked the priest how much money he gave the woman. Allen was charged with ;at-tempted felony murder, robbery with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery, i Assistant State Attorney David Rimmer said prosecutors would look into the possibility of a murder charge if a medical expert can prove Barrett died from injuries he suffered in the attack. The next step in Allen's case is a Jan. 10 mental competency hearing. She was diagnosed with a bipolar schizo-affective disorder and has pleaded insanity. One psychologist has concluded , she can stand trial if she takes medication but another has recommended hospital treatment. . ; Cremation Services A CREMATION SERVICE of the PALM BEACHES - Bob & Nancy Kirkpatrick, Owners Residents ot Palm Beach County Sine 1957 v AFFORDABLE CREMATIONS 1 :.
