Between 2006 and 2013, hundreds of our neighbors in the County were arrested by our Sheriff’s Department, even though they were guilty of no serious crimes. Some were stopped because of a traffic violation or a broken headlight. Because they did not have a driver’s license, they were then handcuffed, jailed and detained sometimes indefinitely. Their cars were often impounded. In some cases, they were charged only with driving without a license; sometimes no charges were filed at all. Yet they were not allowed to go free, even if they paid a bond.
