Cicconetti created his own unique brand, which he calls creative justice. He often gives the offender a choice – either spend time in jail or undergo one of his punishments, which put the wrongdoer in the same position to that of his or her victim at the time of the crime.

The judge’s treatment of animal abusers is particularly worth talking about.

Creative sentences

Michael Cicconetti is an avid animal lover. His compassion for animals developed in childhood when he got his first dog. For that reason, the judge is very harsh with animal abusers and gives them a taste of their own medicine.

For example, one woman who kept her dog in filthy conditions was sentenced to spend 8 hours at the dump. Judge Mike said:

I want you to go down to the county dump, to the landfill, and I want them to find the stinkiest, smelliest, God-awful odor place they can find in that dump and I want you to sit there for eight hours tomorrow, to think about what you did to that dog while you smell the odor. If you puke, you puke.

Another woman who abandoned 35 kittens in a park was sentenced to a night in the woods without food, water, and any entertainment. Originally, she was allowed only to take clothes with her but because of the plunging temperatures, the judge said he may let her make a fire.
