Judges Fail to Attend Community Meeting
The American Press reports that neighborhood watch groups in Lake Charles are upset that judges from the 14th JDC failed to attend a meeting that was called to address the problem of reduced bail bonds.
Chief District Judge David Painter said the invitation from the group was discussed among the judges. Judge Wilford Carter agreed to attend the meeting, he said. "He just didn't go," Painter said.
The meeting was called to address the rising number of criminal suspects who were re-arrested after posting reduced bonds.Posted by AJR at October 15, 2003 09:04 AM
