Ronald Dixon turns down the plea bargain offered by the Brooklyn D.A.

"Last month, Hynes reduced the charges to misdemeanor attempted weapon possession, which carries a maximum 90-day jail term. Hynes said he would only ask Dixon to serve four weekends in jail in exchange for a guilty plea.
Criminal Court Judge Alvin Yearwood changed that deal to a year's probation...But the Jamaican immigrant declined the deal and left the courtroom without comment yesterday."

For some background on the case look here.

I'm very proud that Mr. Dixon is standing up for his Rights. Shame is not an adequate word to describe what the D.A. should be feeling.
