    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.

    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.
    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!

    Randy and Evi Quaid skip court date today

    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.

    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....

    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.

FWIW: The earlier articles indicated Quaid's wife resisted the arresting officer(s) attempt to handcuff her, but those charges were dropped.

    Anyone care to guess how long it takes for the framed, autographed photo of the "suspects" and the sheriff to appear in his office?
    I was kind of thinking the same thing.... I guarantee not too many inmates have the luxury of the sheriff driving them to the bank to make a withdrawal to pay for bail, not that majority of them (inmates) are worth the drive and time anyways, especially not these two ding bats....

    Maybe the sheriff did not want to have to pay overtime to keep the jail open, especially with a female prisoner.

    Presidio County, TX
    The county was named for the settlement of Presidio del Norte

    Presidio County is one of 254 counties in Texas. The estimated population in 2004 was 7,639. This was an increase of 4.59% from the 2000 census.
    In 2002, the per capita personal income in Presidio County was $14,435. This was an increase of 25.9% from 1997. The 2002 figure was 47% of the national per capita income, which was $30,906.

    · Mexican - 80%
    · Other Hispanic or Latino - 5%
    · German - 3%
    · Irish - 3%
    · English - 2%
    · Scottish - 1%


    Marfa is a city in Presidio County.

    It is the county seat.

    The community was named for one of Fyodor Dostoevski's fictional characters. However, there is some dispute about whether the name is a reference to Crime and Punishment or to The Brothers Karamazov; both books include a character named "Marfa"

    The latitude of Marfa is 30.307N. The longitude is -104.018W.
    It is in the Central Standard time zone. Elevation is 4,685 feet.
    The estimated population, in 2003, was 2,029.

    Good criminals belong in jail. Too bad that they have the right to reasonable bail.

    +2. Agreed. And also, I suppose they are using a 'public defender'?? Unless Dennis got them a private attorney???

    Even at 10 percent each, that's $8k total. And I'm sure they also have credit cards. However, I wonder why the article didn't state how much they actually used to bail out. Though, I am sure it is only 10 percent as you stated.

    One quick call to Dennis Quaid, the more successful Quaid brother, and perhaps the whole amount was posted.
