According to an article in the May 25, 2013 edition of The Ukiah Daily Journal, Fort Bragg police arrested a 29-year old man for allegedly having “a stolen TV, a club and methamphetamine in his vehicle.”
It seems that on May 21st, officers stopped a gentleman in the 500 block of North Main Street and discovered he was on probation out of Stanislaus County.
He had “recently been released from Mendocino County Jail on theft-related charges” and “the condition of his release was that he obey all laws.”
I’m wondering what the term “obey all laws” means to this man. He certainly did not abstain from breaking the laws surrounding the following for which he has been charged:
(1) Possessing and transporting methamphetamine for sale.
(2) Selling methamphetamine.
(3) Possessing an illegal weapon.
(4) Receiving stolen property.
(5) Possessing property with serial numbers removed.
(6) Defrauding an innkeeper of $400 or more.
(7) Violating the terms of release on felony charges.
Clearly, the court system must make future conditions of release easier for this poor fellow to follow.
Upon his next exit from jail, the above seven items should be typed out, labeled Do Not Do List, and handed to him.
What’s on your Do Not Do List?
