NY Man Broke Police Station Window Moments After Release, Cops Say
Two burglary arrests in two months wasn't enough to keep him locked up. Three arrests in two months is pretty ridiculous. This the new bail reform act at its absolute finest.
Like most residents of New York I'm a bit confused by the new bail reform act. According Slate, the act that went into effect on January first is to let certain defendants out held on low level charges who are being held simply because they cannot afford bail.
According to police and News 12, Jonathan Martin was arrested last week after allegedly breaking into home and being in possession of stolen property. Peekskill police arrived on the scene and Martin was taken into custody.
Later that afternoon Martin was released. Minutes after his release, a police station window was smashed and Martin was apprehended and placed in Westchester County jail and now faces new charges.
According to News 12, Martin was arrested earlier in the month for allegedly participating in another break in Tarrytown.
