Meet the Author

Joel Rosenthal grew up in apartments in Washington D.C.For decades he worked as a biologist in the Washington metropolitan area.

In 2000 he established Point of View Farm, Inc., a 501 (C) (3) non-profit animal sanctuary, and began operations in West Virginia. His goal was to care for injured and orphaned animals so that they could be released, or be provided with a permanent home.

In 2005 he was charged with the crime of illegally possessing wildlife, a week old fawn. Over the next four years he, without any legal experience or help, fought the
State asserting that he had a legal right to his activities.

His odyssey demonstrates how fragile and marginal our legal system can be, yet how justice can be achieved by a dogged persistence.

After dozens of court appearances from Magistrate Court through the West Virginia
Supreme Court of Appeals to the U. S. Federal District Court, he prevailed.

This book should inspire anyone who feels he/she has been unjustly accused of a crime, anyone in the legal profession and those who care about animals.
