  • Will he stay?

  • yes ! Get those crank fiends ! Disarm them and Send them to rehab

  • Did the guy have a search and seizure Clause if not it was illegal search and seizure but he was probably on probation and has a the search and seizure clause

    • Did you read the press release. He was arrested for dui and incidental to the arrest the vehicle was searched and the firearm was located. No illegal search. Hope you pay more attention if you ever serve on jury duty.

    • Lost Croat Outburst

      Read the post again, slowly. If this is your perception of reality, you are one walking bust waiting to happen. As a “lawyer”, you have a fool for a client.

  • I bet they didnt keep him in jail. Just a revolving door . They should print whos kept and whos released due to over crowding.

    • If he doesn’t have a violent past it’s better to risk a flight to avoid prosecution, than to take up jail space that would be much better utilized if filled with a violent gang member. Besides if we’re lucky he’ll flee the area and be picked up and prosecuted in another county that can more afford it.

  • He is still in jail probation hold he probably has a suspended sentence hanging over him ,for a prior conviction, so yes to your question he’s still in jail.Can’t bail with probat ion hold .
