District Judge Russell Fagg (at right) in Billings, on his decision to interrupted the preparation of Christmas Eve dinner with his family to sign an order that allowed the pregnant daughter of a deputy prosecutor to avoid spending the holiday in jail on a domestic violence charge.
The Billings Gazette outlines the scenario, including this rationale from Kelly Addy, a former state lawmaker who called the judge on behalf of his daughter, Amanda Jane Addy.
“It was Christmas Eve,” he said. “She was very upset. She is pregnant. What am I going to do?”
