Justice candidate suggests platform

Dayton justice of the peace candidate Stanleigh Harold Lusak believes too many people face prosecution for actions that are not crimes.

"If there is not an injured or damaged party, there is no crime," Lusak said. "It's a simple platform."

Lusak, 58, moved to Dayton about two and a half years ago after living in Fallon for a few years. He spent most of his life in the San Fernando Valley and the Antelope Valley, both in Los Angeles County.

He went on permanent disability from the U.S. Postal Service about two years ago. He worked for the postal service for 14 years with jobs varying from mail carrier to customer service clerk.

Lusak believes a judge balances law enforcement that is out of control. He questions how out-of-state drivers sometimes get tickets that aren't necessary and how people have gotten arrested for DUI while washing their cars.

Even when somebody has committed a crime, Lusak has his own priorities.

"Prosecution starts with restitution," Lusak said. "We fine people and put them in jail but what about restitution?"

Lusak was out of town last week when the Nevada Appeal spoke with the three other candidates: attorney William Rogers, school bus driver Linda Rhoades and metallurgical engineer John Bennetts.
