Starve the inmates and get rich...

Amazing piece about this sheriff, finally jailed for essentially starving his inmates. Bear in mind, he spent less than $1.75 per day to feed them.


this is the guy...

Not related to this entry, but I thought you might be interested in this Ohio appeals ruling: http://www.sconet.state.oh.us/rod/docs/pdf/11/2008/2008-ohio-6994.pdf

The public defender was assigned the case the day before trial, and given 2 hours to look over the papers. When he refused to go to trial, the judge charged and convicted him of contempt of court.

The appeals court (justifiably) reversed.

It does give a good idea of the crap public defenders have to go through. And it's good to see the ethical conduct of this public defender, too.

This guy should be sentenced to jail for at least 90 days, or for the average term imposed on inmates serving in the jail. He should be required to subsist on the rations he considered to be sufficient for other inmates during that period.

One night in jail is hardly sufficient.

$1.75 per day? You could not kennel a dog for that much!
