The trial was July 18, 2001 - One case was dismissed and the jury found me NOT-guilty of Harassment on the other.

The harassment charge was as follows:
Mr. Murphy with the INTENT to harass, alarm or annoy, did follow in a public place.

My intent was that the person I followed, as well as the person I did not follow, receive a summons for dog off-leash.  I was always polite, never raised my voice, never used foul language and never impeded their travel.
