When Dan was appointed to the Superior Court, it was generally believed that he would be a strict law-and-order judge, one willing to use the
three-strikes law to keep repeat offenders off the street. But it didn't work out that way, Judge D. finding any means possible to give a convicted
felon the minimum prison time possible.
When the time came for re-election, the judge found himself in a heated battle with a former prosecutor. In a debate before much of the local
citizenry, he was asked by his challenger, "How can you justify your unwillingness to use the three-strikes law?"
Dan answered immediately, "I refuse to pronounce a long sentence because it is beyond my jury's diction."
