Misuse of Pre-trial Release or Sheriff's Office Nepotism? By- Robert McGowan

 

pre trial release On 20 November 2014 Richard Barnes a resident of Palm Bay, Fl was arrested on charges of possession of less than 20 Grams of Cannabis, Possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Upon Mr. Barnes arrival at the Brevard County Jail, staff of the Pre-trial release program interviewed him and found he did not qualify for the pre-trial release program. However, several hours after this interview the Pre-trial release office received a call on behalf of Richard Barnes by a relative of his, a Mr. John Chisolm,who is a retired veteran of the Brevard County Sheriffs Department with more than 20 years of service with the Sheriffs department.

Since the Pre-trail release employees declined to comment about this phone call, we do not know what the phone call conversation entailed. However. we do know that less than an hour after this phone call was placed. Richard Barnes was approved for Pre-trial release and later released from the jail without a monetary bond.

How could Mr. Barnes be unapproved by Pre-trial release and then later approved after just a phone call? Did his length of residency or employment situation somehow change while he was in jail?

Or did an ex jail employee simply call in a favor?
