Broward Public Defenders and Broward Courts let 78 year old woman rot for 15 days in jail

For this one I had to start the category ‘you gotta be kidding me’.  According to the Miami Herald, a 78 year old grandmother Gabrielle Shaink Trudeau arrested for driving with a suspended license spent 15 days, that’s right 15 days!, in jail because neither the courts nor her PUBLIC DEFENDERS recognized she was entitled to release. Broward Public Defender Howard Finkelstein said, “we fell down and we fell down badly”.  Yeah, I’ll say!  A 78 year old woman, who is entitled to see a judge within 24 hours of arrest,who is entitled to a reasonable non-monetary bond within 24 hours if she is no danger to the community per Florida statute, sits for 15 days, maybe you guys should ’stay down’.   According to the report, the Broward PD’s failed to represent her at her initial appearance hearing!  They failed to represent her???  Wow.   Here is the link to the story if you don’t believe us:  http://www.miamiherald.com/486/story/1420180.html
