Increased COVID-19 Risk for Inmates
Inmates of North Carolina county jails face an increased risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus. Studies out of New York show that inmates at Rikers Island detention facility have a 7 times higher chance of contracting COVID-19 than the general public. Experts warn that it will be the same threat to inmates in North Carolina.
Governor Cooper recently said that State resources are at capacity and there will be no additional state aid for local correctional institutions in the unfortunate event the COVID-19 pandemic reaches North Carolina jails.
Despite this unstable time, the attorneys at Dummit Fradin are working diligently to get people out of jail while they await their court date.
Bond Motion Won in Guilford County
Criminal defense attorney, Patrick Apple, recently won a jail bond motion in Guilford County. In this case, a $1,000,000 secured bond was changed to an unsecured custody release allowing our client to be released from custody and avoid an indefinitely long wait in an exposed and dangerous jailhouse environment. Although COVID-19 poses a grave and dangerous threat, we are working to use it to our client’s advantage to help secure their liberty as well as their safety.
