So was this guy in jail since April?
If they dismissed the charges that means he sat in jail for 5 months for nothing.

I think he was in jail for making threats of shooting up UE and EPD. I think EPD, the prosecutor's office, and a judge felt probable cause existed that he committed a crime.
I'm sure his caring defense attorney paid out of his own caring pocket to get him the help he needed.

No they said they weren't considered threats and I don't see them as such either. Did you read what the "threats" were? He was basically wanting mental hearth care.

Well hopefully his cry for help was heard. Get this guy a doctor.

Who is they? I'll tell you who; his lying defense attorney. The local media had the actual Twitter posts up. They were threats by a deranged person much like the one that shot up the Navy Yard the other day.

Thanks for your concern. I was only in jail for 62 days. For nothing.

Well not really sir. I actually have no record and no weapons. They just wanted that money for an inmate
