well ..much more difficult to escape from a prison than from a home, so the judge took that into account ... another law and order joke in the DR ..

Pretrial jail sentences before being proven guilty can get the innocent incarcerated too. A system with a bail hearing is a safer system for the innocent. Better to let 10 guilty go than to imprison 1 innocent person.

Think about it, why would you vote for anyone who wears a goatee and haircut like that? Individuals with facial hair or who go to barbers to ask for certain styles should be considered questionable and subject to scrutiny

All kidding aside, hate to say it but the first culprit to this crime is the DR electorate themselves who voted this idiot into office. The worst thing anyone can do is hand over political power into the hands of a former baseball player just because of his batting average. Previously talented athletes or entertainers do not make one qualified to run for elected office and this is the problem. They keep voting for incompetent, but above all unethical or dishonest people who should have never been given even the slightest chance to set foot into public service
