        Randy and Evi Quaid skip court date today

        When they posted bond last month, it looked like Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, would finally make it to a Santa Barbara courthouse to face felony charges related to allegedly skipping out on a $10,000 luxury hotel bill.

          "I like to help everybody out," Dominguez said. "It's a small town.
          "

          Yea, right. I'm sure Sheriff Dominguez drives all the arrestees in his town to the banks so they can obtain bail. He probably accepts personal checks too....
          Actually, we do that quite regularly up here, but we never have such high-profile "clients", bail is generally nowhere near that high, nor are the offences that serious $ value.

          IF / WHEN cash bail is required, it is generally $500. MOST releases are Promise To Appears, Recognizances or Undertakings, with few if any conditions. Cash bail will generally be sought, ordered and paid by non-residents of this Province, and FTA Court will often result in being remanded into custody with revocation of bail; the bail MOST OFTEN is applied to ensuing fines assessed.

            They are much too important to do something like show up for court. The laws are only written for the little people. They don't apply to celebrities and sports figures.

              From the most recent news on this lovely couple: "After the couple missed four previous voluntary court appearances, an arrest warrant went out for them, and the District Attorney's office was proceeding with extraditing the Quaids from Texas to California until bond was posted. The court is now preparing a new arrest warrant with the new bail conditions, and extradition proceedings will kick in again."

              It's nice to see folks who take the criminal justice system so seriously get such treatment from LEOs like the sheriff. It isn't bad enough that these people are wasting the time of the court and prosecutor's office, we're driving them around like a free taxi service. "Starstruck" LEOs (like the sheriff) only enable chronic lawbreakers to continue flaunt their violations. Thanks again!

                In fairness, looking at it from the Sheriff's point of view, he polices a small and none too prosperous community. Keeping two people in custody is costing him money, particularly as the offence is a) none too serious and b) happened in a different state. If I were in his position, and the only thing keeping him from getting shot of them was a 10 minute drive to the ATM, I'd do the same.
