Hibler, 32, was arrested on a charge of allowing three goats to run at large in Wilderness Park at 1st and Van Dorn streets. He presented his own defense at an 80-minute trial Dec. 22. Municipal Court Judge Thomas McManus said evidence that Hibler was the controller of the goats or that he let the goats loose was insufficient to support charges against him. He declined to comment at length because City Prosecutor Norman Langemach's decision to file a writ of error still is pending. The writ allows a review of important points of law which may have been brought out in the case and would not subject Hibler to double jeopardy, according to McManus. The prosecution has ten days to file the writ. Although Langemach said he is not contemplating such action the ruling still is being studied. He said his office could file a new complaint against Hibler's wife, Bonnie, the goats' owner. "But I think that would be like kicking a dead horse," Langemach said. Pleads own defense "As an advocate, he did very well," McManus said. Hibler, with the help of a friend who is a para-legal, said he spent about three days preparing for the trial. "It was like a ball game in which the other side knew the rules and I didn't," he said. "The normal citizen coming off the street trying to plead his own defense can't even get to first base because he doesn't know the rules." Hibler said a lawyer would have cost him five or six times as much as pleading guilty and paying the fine. He said his wife was fined $23 previously on a similar charge. "I didn't have $200 to put into a lawyer," he said. "It's unfortunate that middle income people are put into such difficult straits." Hibler said it was "kind of fun" Being his own lawyer, but he was dissatisfied because "three crucial points" were not ruled on. The first, he said, was that his arrest was made by officers who were out of their jurisdiction. City police made the arrest on Hibler's county property, he said. In addition, he said, it was questionable whether either he or his wife could be held responsible for breaking a city ordinance while neither was within the city limits. Hibler said he discovered a precedent case in which a tractor driver was acquitted of disturbing the peace in a city because he was working outside the city limits. Hibler said a final unresolved point is an "unlawful citation" which ordered his appearance in court in less than 24 hours, an act he said is prohibited by a state statute. He refused to appear the following day as ordered. Judge McManus said in his decision, however, that it was no longer necessary "to deal with other objections raised in the defendant's brief." Loose ends remain Hibler said some loose ends remain. "Now that the case is settled, 111 feel free to look into things related to it that I didn't do because it might prejudice the case," he said. He said an inquiry into "unlawful procedures" by Campus Police has been requested of Interim Chancellor Adam Breckenridge's office, but that he has yet to hear of a follow-up. The officers al legedly entered Hibler's locked office while helping city police search fur the professor to serve an arrest warrant. Hibler said he also is unhappy with the press coverage of the case. He said his side of the story was distorted to make interesting reading and that he wants a chance to reply in print. "I'd like to believe the law is designed to serve the ends of justice," he said. "But you get involved in so many fine points it becomes difficult lo judge the real substance of the case." short Wl I J Application deadline for the U.S. Naval Academy Student Conference on For eign Affairs has been ex tended to noon Friday.
