$150,000 CASH BAIL
Barry Matthew Shue had seven prior, serious criminal dockets beginning in 2002 when he was arraigned before District Judge Rodney H. Hartman on July 11th of this year. He is charged with three first degree misdemeanors for Theft by Unlawful Taking. On these charges from his eighth criminal docket, Hartman set his bail at $20,000 cash.
I found another shocking trend in the dockets I reviewed today and that will come tomorrow. But Marie Lavaud is currently in jail on $150,000 cash bail set by Hartman for two misdemeanors (click here). This is simply outrageous! Bail is not punishment! Who is watching these District Justices in Lancaster County?
