I'm sorry, but I feel like they kind of glossed over the part where he was keeping a pregnant heroin addict locked in his home, resulting in false imprisonment charges to which he ultimately plead guilty.
Yes, yes, access to phones, terrible, but what on earth?
A retrospective case controlled study was carried out on 51 Chinese gravidas who had abused narcotics and who were delivered in a teaching hospital in Hong Kong. Heroin was the most commonly abused drug. The number of patients who changed from heroin to methadone was small. The major antenatal complications were late antenatal booking (average 28 weeks), prematurity (41%), small for gestational age baby (27.5%), antepartum haemorrhage (13.7%) and high prevalence of venereal disease (23.5%). The babies born to drug addicted mothers were on average 629 g lighter at birth, 5 cm smaller in head circumference and 7 cm shorter in body length. Neonatal withdrawal symptoms occurred in 83% of all drug exposed neonates. The perinatal mortality rate was 19.6 per 1,000 total birth which was 2.5 times that of the control group. There was one maternal death in our series. Drug addiction in pregnancy poses a major risk to both mother and child.,
No, because that creates a potential conflict of interest between bail bondsman and the courts.
A blanket policy of "We don't give out anyone's number" just takes all of this off the table.
Like I said, the problem isn't the cops, it's the courts.
birdherder: But apparently here the County Attorney argued for $150K bail and the judge agreed. It was a serious felony charge, after all. The problem in this case is he could get bailed out but couldn't because he couldn't call anyone.
Petrick says he was not able to arrange bail until after he had his first court appearance — four days after his arrest.
Cool Papa Bell isn't trolling. there are a lot of jails that don't post the numbers and the reasons always given are the ones Cool Papa Bell is repeating. you might think it's dumb, but it's certainly not disingenuous.
