Hibler won his goats,
but case not ended yet
By Bryant Brooks
UNL English professor David Hibler
won a dismissal of his court case last week
as well as compliments from the presiding
judge, but Monday he said he is not
completely satisfied.
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
"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."
