Coronavirus as Get Out of Jail Card

Judge won't free man linked to extremists over virus risk

A federal magistrate judge has ruled the risk of exposure to coronavirus in jail doesn't warrant freeing a 19-year-old Maryland man while he awaits trial on criminal charges stemming from his membership in a violent white supremacist group

William Garfield Bilbrough IV has diabetes and his medical condition leaves him particularly vulnerable if he is exposed to the coronavirus while he is detained at the Correctional Treatment Facility in Washington, D.C., his attorneys said in a court filing.

"Although Mr. Bilbrough may still be at an increased health risk if he is infected with the virus, this factor alone does not outweigh the other factors that strongly favor detention. Mr. Bilbrough is simply too great a danger to be released," Sullivan wrote.

Bilbrough and two other men linked to a white supremacist group called The Base have been in federal custody since their arrests in January. Bilbrough is charged with helping transport and harbor a fellow Base member who was accused of illegally entering the U.S. from Canada.

Sullivan refused to set bond for Bilbrough on two previous occasions. The magistrate said during a March 4 hearing that his decision to keep Bilbrough in jail was a “very close call.” But he said he had reservations about releasing the defendant into his grandmother's custody.

There is a young man currently in custody locally since earlier this month who I know. Arrested on a mm battery charge during a late night dispute with GF and a neighbor called police. GF refused to press charges nor give a statement (she herself is an addict which we warned him of).

Collectively, friends and family decided not to bond him out -- not because we don't care, but because we want him time to think ( at 26yo, he's made some bad choices but is good at heart ).

We are rethinking in the current times to bond him out ($3,500). He might be safer out of custody. :think:

But would his GF be safer were he still in custody?

In Flagstaff, my son is a city bus driver. He said the released prisoners are going to the shelter (singular). So the jail will avoid liability, but the situation hasn't changed. Except the former prisoners can leave and be homeless.

He would be safer with her in custody. She's a known quantity in our circle. He's a pussy cat. She sustained a bruise and cut as he was physically making her leave his place. He didn't hit her.

I have the police report.

Cross posting from Michael Cohen thread.
DENINED!!!!

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics ... r-BB11EHJW

Judge rejects Michael Cohen's coronavirus-linked plea for release from prison


Ten months into his prison term, it's time that Cohen accept the consequences of his criminal convictions for serious crimes that had far reaching institutional harms," US District Court Judge William Pauley wrote.

In his decision, the judge said the "fatal flaw" of Cohen's effort is that only prosecutors -- not defendants -- are permitted to file a motion to reduce a sentence, and criticized Cohen for suggesting in his initial request that the Justice Department was biased against him.

"Unable to articulate how he advanced any investigation or prosecution, Cohen and his surrogates make extravagant allegations that the Department of Justice -- from the Attorney General down to line prosecutors -- acted in bad faith," the judge wrote. "Those ad hominem attacks lack any substance and do not trigger the right to a remedy or a hearing before this Court."

Cohen's attorney had noted in a filing Monday that Cohen has been hospitalized twice and has pre-existing pulmonary issues, saying "the sentence of 36 months should not end up being a capital crime depriving my client of his life."

And he is on his way to being released. State is not filing at this time (which is much different than a nolle prosequi). If he messes up again, these charges can be brought back.

Apparently, the general consensus is he will go back with this woman. Me thinks 3 weeks in lockup gave him time to reflect? I hope I'm right.

Anyway, he gets to come out into a pandemic. surprise.
