Shane Benjamin writes in the Durango Herald:
A Durango man was sentenced Friday to 60 days in jail for spitting his own feces on a police officer.
Paul Kausalik, 62, stood still and showed no emotion as 6th Judicial District Judge David Dickinson handed down the punishment.
Kausalik apologized to his wife, the officer and the community. His wife was in the courtroom; the officer was not.
“The occurrences of that evening are totally indefensible,” he said.
Through his attorney, Kausalik declined to comment outside the courtroom.
Kausalik’s work as a retail associate at the Durango Post Office, 222 W. Eighth St., made his a well-known face around town. He worked for the service for about 30 years and retired April 29, said Al DeSarro, a spokesman in Denver.
Kausalik was facing anything from probation to two years in jail after spitting feces at Durango police Officer Chad Langley while detained at the Durango police station.
