Add comment on:Frey Released from Jail on Bail Pending Appeal; Gary Johnson Still Locked Up

Attorney and activist Ed Frey's bail for release pending appeal of a six month sentence was reduced on Friday from $50,000 to $110. D.A. Dabkowski and Judge Gallagher "discovered" the standard bail for 647e "lodging" was $110, around 1/500th of the bail originally demanded. Why the two well-paid judicial bureaucrats hadn't noticed this on June 12th was still a mystery. On that date angry at Frey's refusal to take probation, pay a fine, and/or agree to report to jail, the judge had the two locked of and led away in handcuffs (which they were still in--shackled hand and foot--when they reappeared Friday morning in Courtroom 2). Johnson presents her account and some background.
