Well she's not hideous but certainly not hot enough to have to put up with her drug problem.

So I practice law in Indiana.

All the jails are owned by the county they are in. Prisons are state owned.

Currently our judicial qualifications commission is in the process of removing a judge from the bench for not letting people out timely. She had a ton of other problems as well, but that was the big one.

I expect this judge to be investigated as well and disciplined in some manner. Depending on his response to the commission it could range from a 30 day vacation w/o pay to being removed from the bench.

/posting from my phone so I am not looking up to see if there is a pending disciplinary case on this judge.

Mikey1969: Anderson's Pooper: According to the article she has an attorney and, from reading between the lines, he was on the case from the first sentencing.  Why the fark didn't she call him on day 3??

That's not what it says here: "Hoffman's attorney, Nathan Masingo, said he was not even aware he client had been jailed and may file a lawsuit against county officials alleging she was unlawfully incarcerated."

TFA also states that "she was sent to jail without a hearing or legal counsel".

I actually don't see the lines that reading between would indicate that he was on the case from the first sentencing, I just posted the exact opposite, in fact.


When the attorney says he was not aware the client had been jailed it means he was already her counsel prior to the jailing.  I worked for the Public Defender's office for several years.  She had an attorney for her original case and was then placed on probation at her first sentencing.  When she was re-sentenced on the violation she should have called him right off the bat, especially when days 3-150 rolled around.  But, as was noted above, she's blonde.

Of course, she's also been lead to believe that the "system" is there to enforce the rules. Why would she expect that they would not follow them? Not everyone is as cynical as we are.

Best and worst thing to happen to her.

The plus side is that she got a free detox and was forced sober for 5 months,

The minus side is that she'll have a shiat-ton of extra cash to ruin that sobriety.

Do convicted defendants and prisoners always get phone privileges in your jurisdiction?  I doubt that's the case in most places.

Dahnkster: Well, color me surprised. It is a private corporately owned jail.

Clark County Jail Holding Corp


Clarksville school system is a private corporation too.  I'm surprised our police force isn't a corporate security company.

Dimensio: whither_apophis: dj_bigbird: Dinki: It is unclear why Ms Hoffman did not let prison officials know that she was being held for an undue length of time.


Because she's a prisoner, and they always lie. And, I wonder if this jail is run by CCA....

If inmates didn't tell the guards when their sentence was up, how would the guards know when to release the inmates?

I'm Not Sure.

You're in the wrong line, dumbass!

The one time I was in jail I couldn't even make a phone call without a credit card or prepaid jail phone card... So her not being able to call her lawyer is not a surprise... The days of "you get one phone call" are officially behind us... Next time she will cram her vag with an iPhone before she goes to court...

Apologies if repost: http://www.newsandtribune.com/local/x1724068730/Director-of-Clark-Cou n ty-drug-treatment-program-fired

That judge just fired the  director of the Clark County Drug Court Treatment Program.

btw, in Indiana, there's not much concern with habeus corpus or civil rights. Some guy in Marion had been locked up for two years without being charged. The ACLU is asleep at the switch. State government doesn't give a damn.

The judge fired the head of the drug thingy to deflect attention from his own retardedness. That judge was disciplined in 1999 for violating:

Canon 1 of the Code of Judicial Conduct, which generally requires judges to uphold the integrity and independence of the judiciary;
Canon 2(A), which generally requires judges to avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety, to respect and comply with the law, and to act at all times in a manner which promotes the public's confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary;
Canon 3(B)(2), which generally requires judges to be faithful to the law.


Indiana judges are political hacks.

He launched the investigation in October. THey recently released the results. This firing was the result of said investigation. The firing was well deserved as there were violations of civil rights.

According to this she isn't the only one this judge has screwed, the guy in this article was sentenced to 30 days and ended up serving 215.

JeffreyScott: Dahnkster: Well, color me surprised. It is a private corporately owned jail.

Clark County Jail Holding Corp

Most of Indiana's juvenile detention centers are privately owned as well.

America, locking up more of it's citizens than any other country in the world for profit!
Corporations are buying your legislators and courts and locking up your friends and family.

As much as I hate private jail/work houses/prisons, (see slashies) this was entirely the judges fault.

First, the judge sent the women to jail without a hearing or the appointment of legal counsel.  That is a clear violation of the her constitutional right to due process and right to counsel.

Then, the judge failed to note when the woman was supposed to be released, or in the alternative set a review date.  The facility had no authority to release the women when she was ordered held 'until further order of the court'.

This judge be removed from the bench.

/I had client in a private workhouse facility, with AIDS, who was not provided her AIDS medication. (no suit filed, client decease)
//I had a pregnant client, in a private workhouse facility, loose her unborn child when they didn't transport her to the e-room, until hours later, despite being told to immediately transport her by their own medical staff.  (civil suit pending)
///I have had a client, in a private workhouse facility, placed in solitary confinement when he refused to beat up other inmates. (civil suit settled)



Holy fark. I really hope you are making that up. The other two are horrible as well.

That is outrageous and unacceptable.

"Lose" is spelling with one "o."


Let slip the hog of whore!
