Mom upset over judge’s hair-cutpunishment
PRICE, Utah (AP) — AUtah mother says she feltintimidated in court when a judge told her that he wouldreduce her 13-year-old daugh-ter’s sentence if she choppedoff the girl’s ponytail in court— an offer the mother says shenow wishes she hadn’t taken.Valerie Bruno, of Price,said she has filed a formalcomplaint against 7th DistrictJuvenile Judge Scott Johansenwith the Utah Judicial ConductCommission. The teenagerand an 11-year-old friend werereferred to juvenile court forcutting off the hair of a 3-year-old girl with scissors in Marchand for harassing another girlin Colorado by telephone.When the 13-year-old facedJohansen for a hearing in May,he ordered she serve 30 daysin detention and to perform276 hours of community ser-vice, but he also offered totake 150 hours of communityservice off the sentence if hermother cut her ponytail in hiscourtroom.Bruno is now expressingregret for not consulting anattorney before taking herdaughter into the courtroom.“I guess I should have wentinto the courtroom knowingmy rights, because I felt veryintimidated,” she told theDeseret News. “An eye for aneye, that’s not how you teachkids right from wrong.”Mindy Moss, mother of the3-year-old whose hair was cutoff, said she approved of thesentence and even spoke upduring the hearing when shefelt Bruno had not cut off enough of her daughter’s hair.Johansen then directed Brunoto cut the ponytail all the way“to the rubber band.”Moss told The Salt LakeTribune that she originallycalled police about the haircutbecause she worried the girls’behavior could become moreserious.“I didn’t want them to thinkthey got away with it ... It wasmalicious,” Moss said.Attempts by The AssociatedPress to reach Johansen wereunsuccessful Sunday.Colin Winchester, execu-tive director of the UtahJudicial Conduct Commission,said the state Constitution barshim from commenting onwhether a complaint has beenfiled against a judge. A com-plaint only becomes publicif disciplinary action is takenagainst a judge, he said.
