A Ninth District judge indicated disappointment that a Rifle woman accused of yelling at two Spanish-speaking women in a racially charged rant at a Rifle grocery story will not have to enter a plea.
Garfield County Judge Jonathan Potosky said at a hearing in the case Wednesday he would have liked to see Linda Dwire, who was charged with misdemeanor racial-motivated harassment enter a guilty plea of some kind of condition of having her case diverted.
The charge results from an incident at the Rifle City Market in October part of which was caught on video by a bystander and went viral on the internet where Dwire allegedly was yelling at two women for speaking in Spanish.
The diversion program was at the discretion of prosecutors, and it was not in his power to compel a plea, Pototsky said.
The point of the diversion program is to divert the case away from the court, and the court has no way to stop it.

Not long ago two women in a laundrymat were harassing my wife in Spanish. On and on they went.
What they didnt know is my wife is fluent in Spanish.
Wonder what racist judge would take on her case?
Same with my old lady. You would never suspect it because she is an old Scandanavian type. But she hears the beaners speak Spanish all the time in stores and many times they are bashing on Americans around them.
I too get irritated with those that speak in only Spanish, but it's more dependent on the venue, when I ran food I felt that my employees should speak English so that everyone knew what was being said, especially the customers.
If you want to be upset at people speaking other than English the anger should be directed where t really belongs, at liberals who have insured that no one has to learn English and they do it as part of their plan to divide us by race, language or religion to keep America from again being a melting pot and unified.
My two cents on this woman is she should never have been charged with anything, where in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights are we given the right not to be offended?
As I said-the rude woman would have been ignored by us locals out here-if there were tourists around-Mexican or otherwise, they would likely have ignored her as well. If she escalated her tirade inside the business, the manager or owner of the business would have told her to shut up or leave-the business is their private property, but most consider a parking lot a public venue where she’d be ignored unless she was dancing around naked or something...
What race is a Spanish speaker?
There are now as many races as there are genders.
Somebody tell the judge that the first amendment was not created to protect acceptable speech.
