Neftali Rivera Sr. is facing two misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace and maintaining a public nuisance on his property -- a rooster farm in Dixon.
Solano County prosecutors are expected to wind down their case today, according to the Vacaville Reporter, which quotes Rivera's defense as saying the “complaints came from a ‘chronic complainer’ who has a ‘propensity to falsely complain about her neighbors.’”
Check out the Reporter story to read about a Solano County ordinance that limits the amount of roosters one can have on his/her property. The ordinance was approved in April of 2011.
Rivera was arrested the following month for failing to appear in court on these charges. Commissioner Barbara James had issues a warrant for his arrest.
The defense is expected to make its case starting Thursday.
