Here's two recent ones that really amazed and disgusted me
1. Meth charge dropped after only spaghetti sauce found on spoon
Here's the public defender describing the case: “From what I understand, she was a passenger in a car and had a spoon on her, near her, and I guess the officer, for whatever reason, thought there was some residue,”
I'd give you the cops' version but, "Attempts to obtain the original arrest report from the Gainesville Police were unsuccessful"
Now sure this seems pretty funny, but the woman was in jail for a MONTH AND A HALF! For no other reason that the cop thought she was a meth-head.
2. Before the Law: A boy was accused of taking a backpack. The courts took the next three years of his life.
This kid was accused of stealing someone's backpack. couldn't make bail, wouldn't plead out. 3 YEARS LATER, the charges were dismissed!
3 YEARS, people.
