Judge Dixon: Explain Super Bowl decision

OlympiaFebruary 7, 2014 

I was wondering if Thurston County Superior Court Judge James Dixon would consider explaining his decision to allow Shawn Goodman to attend the Super Bowl? Not only is Goodman facing DUI charges, he allegedly fled police, endangered his passenger and crashed his car into a house.

Donating his tickets to a charity, or giving them to the homeowners that have to face repairs, seems like the upstanding and responsible thing to do. The Super Bowl is a game and traveling on a commercial airline is a privilege. Help me understand this.
