The Herald reported today about a guy being released from prison because of Annie Dookan.
A retired chief probation officer sentenced in April to up to five years in state prison for trafficking cocaine
Barnstable County District Attorney and man’s man Michael O’Keefe does his best Tokyo Rose with this gem.
“These are people who have been sentenced to state prison for drug distribution,” he said. “You don’t go to state prison in Massaschusetts unless you have a significant criminal history.”
Wait. What? So we don’t have mandatory sentences based on amount of drugs in possession?
Felonies, right? State time. Prior record is not an issue.
Cocaine trafficking ring a bell Michael? More than five years I believe, depending on the amount.
Hard to believe these dangerous characters don’t have violent charges and cases keeping them in the can.
How about the female mules in Framingham state prison?
Cut the shit boys.
You put the evidence out there and should have know something was up with her stats. Most of her work went to a few D.A. offices and the A.G. You guys should be held accountable.
And it shouldn’t cost the state a dime. The D.A.s have have the staff and resources to handle this mid-management project. Take all the Dookan cases and match them to convictions then get the ones in prison in to court who have nothing else keeping them in jail ASAP.
The ASAP is the United States Constitutional part. The others in the can should be brought in ASAP after them. Then the ones on the street.
Depending on the questionableness of the evidence that Dookan did the exam the defendant should be granted bail, including personal, until the case is figured out.
Not rocket science for the mills known as courts operating everyday throughout the state.
