Paid $1500 in jail fees, not even guilty

The Blog


Indicating more unfairness in the US jail system, a man was deprived of a large sum of money in jail fees during the time he stood merely accused of a crime.


Thomas L. Knapp relays the story in a column, available at the Garrison Center and also published via the Mesa Independent and Citizens Journal.

The man, who isn't mentioned by name, was acquitted, but not without being charged "$1,500 he was required to pay just to remain in a place he would cheerfully have walked right out of if allowed."

In his conclusion, Knapp comments that as an antistatist, he doesn't believe in the present government prison system - but, while one exists, taxpayers should really shoulder the costs. He asks, "shouldn’t “we” pick up the check for keeping people — even guilty people — in jail if that’s where “we” want them kept?"
