Other post was getting long so I started this one. Thanks to everyone for the advice and I am going to be contacting everyone that you all advised me to contact. This morning I have been playing "get a quick law degree from dumb county NC" on the phone. The District Attorneys office doesnt even have his charges listed on their computer yet. Wonderful. They dont even have him listed as being in jail...oh goodie! Or even arrested...great system we have. So I called the Magistrates office and talked to them. I got more information there. It doesnt matter what he has done he has to be given a bail. Unless he commits murder. Even if the fact is that he is on probation, out on bail for another case and is picked up now that doesnt revoke his previous bond...nope...sorry...he gets another bail. HUH? Ok...let us get this straight. Cory has active probation from a case in Feb. 6 months. Arrested again in late feb or early march with trial date in june on a felony case. Out on bond. receives numerous traffic tickets. Now this case...they cant tell me exactly what they picked him up on other than that he had 1 felony larceny charge and multiple traffic tickets. I dont think they added the fleeing or the gun to it because they didnt see him with it. Maybe my word against his that he was in the house? Now I am waiting for the probation officer to call me back to pray that they will revoke his probation so that he CANT get out on bail. That is my last hope. Why cant these people see that if he gets out he is going to miss court at least once...he always does, and then if he gets out and does go to court, he will just keep doing the same things he has always done. The only other thing I can even think of doing is going for an involuntary commitment. I could probably call his old psychiatric doctor and explain the goings on and have him call the magistrate and try to get a commitment going. That might buy me at least 72 hours and if he shows out during that time even longer. Arghhhhhhhhhhhhh.
