SALT LAKE CITY — A judge who sentenced a stalker to take his victim to dinner has been reprimanded.
The Utah Judicial Conduct Commission issued a public reprimand Tuesday of Midvale City Justice Judge Dee W. Alldredge, who claimed the victim herself suggested stalker Michael Penrose take her out to dinner at a steakhouse.
Anita Ferroni disputed that in a telephone interview.
She said she did not speak at the 1997 sentencing except to offer a stunned suggestion of a restaurant when the judge asked where she wanted Penrose to take her.
Ferroni said she told Penrose she didn't want to go to dinner with him. Ferroni said she finally agreed to dinner, but left after the food arrived because Penrose was verbally abusive.
