AFFORDABLE Bails New York Inc., with office located in Mineola new York serving the Mineola and Hempstead courts in Nassau County brings you an opinion about the expense of the Nassau county police lab and the cost of future litigation.

I have previously written regarding the Nassau County Police Department Lab and the misconduct of District Attorney Kathleen Rice regarding it.  There is an investigation by the State Inspector General; motions by defendants alleging that they were wrongfully convicted and all of this will be followed by civil lawsuits claiming damages. Clearly the Police Department and District Attorney Kathleen Rice are at fault but so are those who covered up or failed to disclose the problems at the lab and exculpatory evidence. This is a monumental disgrace for this County not easily overcome by band-aid solutions but worse yet is the cost to taxpayers. The latest part of this boondoggle is the County’s retention of outside law firms with political and financial ties to the County Executive to represent those implicated.

By analogy it should be noted that insurance carriers in the case of ordinary civil litigation do not provide coverage for intentional torts or criminal wrongdoing. Our County is self-insured meaning that the taxpayers pay for these losses and legal expenses out of pocket with no insurance coverage.

When public employees have engaged in intentional or even criminal wrongdoing, taxpayers should not have to bear the cost of their wrongdoing and defenses, if any, to it.

Providing a defense to these public officials at taxpayer expense is political favoritism and corruption at its worst. This County has more than its share of fiscal problems exacerbated by politics as usual. Politicians should not be re-elected because of the dog and pony shows that they issue day to day with press releases presenting citations and awards. In fact those citations and awards should be done away with as should the Public Relations Officers who generate them – another unnecessary expense to taxpayers.

AFFORDABLE Bails New York Inc., with office located in Mineola new York serving the Mineola and Hempstead courts in Nassau County brings you an interesting article on the setting of bail post conviction on non-violent offenders so they can comply with court ordered alternatives to jail time.

Over the next three years, 39,000 California prison inmates will be shifted from state prisons to local facilities under AB 109's "realignment" plan - even though most counties lack the jail space and resources to safely house and supervise them. The state promises money, but we've heard this song before.

To ensure the realignment doesn't spark a public safety disaster, California urgently needs to think outside the "cell block" to find creative new ways for protecting the public with fewer staff and financial resources, without further fueling local budget meltdowns.

One promising approach is post-conviction bail for certain non-violent offenders, which would provide them with a very real incentive to comply with court-ordered alternatives to jail time, such as reporting to their probation officers, job training and substance abuse rehabilitation.  This would help ease jail overcrowding, provide the public with a new level of protection, and increase the success of jail alternatives, at no added cost to taxpayers.

Bail bonds and bail agents have been a successful part of California's criminal justice system for decades. Studies show that defendants released on bail are more likely to appear in court, and far less likely to commit crimes while awaiting trial. Bail bonds work because the defendant has a financial incentive to comply with court orders.  When individuals are financially invested in an agreement, they are more likely to take their obligations seriously.  Moreover, because bond guarantees are often co-signed by family or friends, the bond creates a network of supporters who have a vested economic interest in assuring that the defendant behaves as promised.

Post-conviction bail would offer the same powerful incentives.  At a judge's discretion, certain non-violent offenders would be given the option to post a surety bond, allowing them to serve all or a portion of their sentence out of custody.  The bond would be administered by a bail agent licensed by the California Department of Insurance, in an amount set by the judge.

While a bail bond assures that a defendant will show up in court for trial, the post-conviction bond would be linked to whether the defendant complies with the terms of his or her probation.  If the defendant fails to comply, the bond money would be forfeited to the county and the bail agent would track and return the offender to court - at the expense of the bail agent, not taxpayers.  Instead of draining local revenues, post-conviction bonds would generate money for local government with the occasional bond forfeiture, along with an increase in the number of premium taxes paid by local bail agents.

Post-conviction bail would also help lighten the load for local jails.

Affordable Bails New York Inc., with offices located in Mineola New York, serving the Hempstead New York and Mineola New York courts brings you an article on the tragic killing in Suffolk county and the rampant OxyCotin epidemic in America.

Melinda Brady, 29, was convicted of third-degree burglary and obstructing governmental administration with a set bail at $1.5 million bond or $175,000 cash. Her Husband David Laffer,33, was convicted for first-degree murder for the victims of the Medford Long Island New York pharmacy massacre.

This event has shattered many families and have left police speechless being “the most cold-blooded robbery-homicide in Suffolk County history,”  As Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney John Collins said.

Police Commissioner Richard Dormer was at a loss of words for Laffer and Brady, because they were a couple with out any previous criminal records or history of violence.

Dormer said, “It is very difficult to comprehend this…to suddenly engage in this type of violent behavior is beyond understanding. It doesn’t make sense. I don’t have the answer.”

OxyContin Epidemic in America

Brady and Laffer fell into the epidemic of addiction to prescription medications that is causing a cancer in our society. The addiction to prescription pills and just like any addiction it hurts more people then just themselves. The problem with drugs like OxyContin is that it’s making drug addicts out of people that would have normally never become addicted to a control substance.

To Laffer’s neighbors he looked and acted like a good citizen in his Medford, Long Island suburban community. His neighbor, Trish Bohlert, attended their wedding and said, “Something must have made him snap because of his personality  because I can’t picture him robbing a store, much less hurting people.”

Laffer graduated in 1995 from Patchogue High School and joined the army before he was 18. He served from 1994 to 2002 and raised the ranks to private first class. Laffer posted on his Facebook account that he belonged to a military intelligence unit and has a proficiency in fire arms.

Brady and Laffer got married in 2009, the couple was only married for two years. Laffer proposed to Brady at an Islanders hockey game. Brady said, “The question appeared up on the score board. It said “Melinda, will you marry me? Love David” I was shocked and surprised. I was so happy.”





Ravaged by OxyContin

Brady shortly joined a wedding forum after Laffer’s proposal in 2006. There she revealed that she was taking large amount of painkillers.

In November of 2007 Brady wrote, “I just had work done on my teeth and I am in so much pain today, I didn’t even go to work…I am swollen and have stitches in my mouth. The Vicodins made me get sick this morning which hurt me even more.”

In June of 2008 Brady wrote, “I have been so down lately. I am never like this. This only started when I started having surgery on my teeth. I am usually a very happy and fun person to be around…I have been on pills after pills for this infection and it won’t go away.”

Friends on the wedding forum tried to warn Brady about the amount of painkillers and antibiotics she was taking. They told her to stop. Brady’s friends say she has had an addiction to painkiller.

Two weeks before the shooting Laffer got fired form his job at COSA Xentur Instrument Corp. He was accused of stealing from another employee. The job provided Laffer with health benefits.

A friend of the couple, Joanna Martino said that “This past weekend Melinda (Brady) was trying to find out if anyone knew what hospital she can go to get a“scrip” (prescription) of pain pills.” Brady was looking for a doctor that would was unmoral to feel her prescriptions, because she no longer had health insurance.


Perpetrator - Yes... But a Victim Too Perhaps?

“She was saying frantically, “I need pills! I need pills!” she was acting like a complete drug addict.” Martino told reports.

Brady told reporters that “[Laffer] was doing it [robbing the pharmacy] because he lost is job and I was sick. I’m sorry that he did all this… nobody was supposed to get hurt.”

Peter Spano was another one of Laffer’s neighbors. Spano got a good look at Laffer the day he was arrested. Spano said “(He) looked withdrawn, like a skull. He looked like death. He looked like there was nothing in him.”

Affordable Bails New York Inc., with offices located in Mineola New York, serving the Hempstead New York and Mineola New York courts brings you an article on the value of the bail bond company in recovering fugitives.

On a chilly winter night in downtown Miami Nidia Diaz, the owner of Best Bail Bonds, and her team of four bail recovery agents drive south in two pickup trucks.

The agents, Hector Pelaez , Brian Rodriguez, Oscar Recinos and a fourth man who doesn’t want his name used, wear bulletproof vests with Surety Agent in bold white letters across the front and back. They carry handguns, Taser guns, pepper spray and handcuffs. Diaz, a petite Cuban-American, wears a turtleneck, leather jacket, Louis Vuitton heels, and a .38 in a holster color-coordinated with her belt.

They are headed to the South Miami home of Yenisleidys Fernandez, whose 57-year-old father Jose, and 36-year-old sister Maria, are fugitives Diaz is hunting.

On Jan. 26, 2008, police in rural Marion County charged the two with running a marijuana grow-house operation. A judge set bail at more than $100,000 each. They paid Diaz 10 percent of that as a fee, and she agreed to pay the full amount if they fled – which is exactly what they did.

By March 2009 Diaz had tracked them to Mexico, where she photographed Maria leaving her waitressing job and confirmed that Jose was working as a Santeria counselor.

"We’re trying to gather information just to update the file of their whereabouts, whether they’re still in Mexico or back here," Diaz says as they speed south on I-95.

Diaz has a total of seven clients on the lam, worth $827,500 in all, the most she has ever owed in her 30-year career in bail bonds. They are wanted in Okeechobee, Marion, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties. All are charged with first-degree felonies, six with trafficking marijuana, one with fraud and selling illegal prescription drugs online. They have all fled to Latin America -- Uruguay, Panama, Mexico, and Ecuador. All the cases are from 2008.

Diaz tracked them down and verified their addresses. Then she asked state prosecutors to extradite them, agreeing to pay all the costs of extradition. Not one has been brought back.

Diaz says she’s on her own in this hunt, and she’s not getting the help she needs.

No tracking system

No government agency tracks the number of fugitives state prosecutors try to recover from abroad. The U.S. Justice Department, State Department, and individual state attorneys all responded to record requests by saying they do not keep those figures.

As a result, the best available information comes from agents like Diaz.

"Extraditions are not happening," she says. "I’m talking on the state level; it’s just not getting done. And I’ve got cases in Miami-Dade County, Marion County, Okeechobee County. And it’s just not getting done. And it’s frustrating as heck. "

The half-dozen bail bond agents interviewed for this story express rising frustration with official inaction. "The state does not pursue people who flee to foreign countries. Period." says one who, like the others, asked not to be named because he did not want to antagonize the prosecutors who make the decision to extradite.

Requests to state attorney’s offices covering 12 counties found only one – Broward – that could point to any successful extraditions from a foreign country in the past five years. The two people Broward extradited were wanted for murder. (Six years ago, Broward extradited two others wanted for cocaine trafficking).

It’s unclear how many defendants flee the country, and whether their numbers are rising. Alias capias warrants, issued when someone doesn’t show up in court, fell 36 percent over three years in Miami-Dade, to about 4,800 last year from 7,600 in 2007. That decline is consistent with an overall reduction in crime, which in some categories fell by as much as 10 percent a year.

But those statistics may not mean fewer suspects are fleeing abroad. A spokeswoman for the South Florida U.S. Attorney’s Office says its fugitive rate "spiked" in the past five years, largely because of a crackdown on non-violent crimes like healthcare fraud.

Diaz says it’s no accident that all her cases date from 2008, when the financial crash collapsed the real-estate market and deprived state government of property tax revenue. State attorney’s offices statewide had their budgets slashed. Many laid off prosecutors. That meant fewer people to work the time-consuming extradition cases.

Meanwhile, as property values plunged, bail bond agents – who often require defendants to pledge property as security – were left holding worthless deeds. Savvy criminals saw an opportunity in this: If they could bond out, and their properties were under water, they had little incentive to stay around.

‘Nightmare’ process

Sometimes prosecutors do try. In the 19th Judicial Circuit, which comprises the four-county Treasure Coast north of Palm Beach, they were trying to extradite Diaz’s client from Ecuador. But, as one prosecutor put it, "The process is a nightmare" – the paperwork extensive and delays numerous. Since 2008, the 19th circuit has tried to extradite at least eight fugitives, none successfully.

Most prosecutors won’t talk about their efforts. Elizabeth Gibson, the assistant state attorney in the Fifth Judicial Circuit who is prosecuting the Fernandezes, declined to be interviewed after acknowledging her office was not trying to extradite the two.

Diaz also has three cases in Miami-Dade, where prosecutors recently dropped one extradition effort after the Mexican government demanded an affidavit from a confidential informant who could not be immediately located. The extradition request was channeled through the Justice Department. Barbara Piniero, chief of Miami-Dade’s extradition unit, says that Justice told her "we could not proceed in Mexico without" the affidavit. (Diaz says she offered to locate the witness.)

Piniero says her office does try to get fugitives back. "We never have a time when we don’t have petitions, formal and informal, pending all over the world," she says. But Piniero would not say how many extraditions the office executed in the past five years, or how many the office is currently working on. When asked for an example of a defendant brought back recently, Piniero declined.

Prosecutors don’t want to discuss their extradition figures publicly because they don’t want to advertise the limit of their reach, suggests Michael Band, Miami-Dade’s former chief assistant state attorney for major crimes.

"I don’t think any prosecutor will say, ‘If you leave the jurisdiction, if you flee, we are not going to come after you.’ Bad public policy," says Band, who is now in private practice. "Economic decisions are made, though, every day. The state will make an economic decision [about] how much will it cost to get this guy back and is it worthwhile to do that."

But if the extradition costs are covered by bail bond agents?

"It makes no sense to me why the state would allow somebody to live their life out after committing a crime here in Dade County," Band says.

Standing warrants

It’s midnight when Diaz and her team arrive at the home of Yenisleidys Fernandez, the daughter of fugitive Jose Fernandez. En route they placed a courtesy call to keep local police informed.

An agent pounds loudly on the door. After a short wait, it cracks open.

"Good evening, we’re looking for Jose Fernandez and Maria Fernandez Leon," Diaz says in Spanish.

Yenisleidys, peering from behind the door, says she doesn’t know where her father and sister are. Diaz’s tone changes. "Are they still in Mexico or what?” she snaps. “If you tell us you don’t know, we’re going to keep coming back here."

"I don’t care, you can keep coming, because I don’t know," Yenisleidys says.

Diaz confers briefly with her team about whether to search the house. "I can’t listen to this bull**** all night," she says. "Come on, let’s go."

With that, the team pushes past Yenisleidys into the home.

"But you have to have a warrant," protests Yenisleidys, sounding angry and scared.

"I have the warrant," Diaz shoots back. "And you know I do. You know who I am. I’m Nidia Diaz. I’m the stupid idiot who bonded all these people out."

Yenisleidys runs upstairs to grab her sleeping baby.

Because fugitives are technically still in the custody of the bond agents they contracted with, the agents have standing warrants to search residences linked to defendants.

This search pays off. Agents quickly find a room in the back with a Santeria shrine (Fernandez is a Santeria priest) and a closet full of men’s clothes. Diaz is excited. She sniffs the clothes in the closet. Yenisleidys calls the police.

"Check out the scent," Diaz says holding up a shirt. "I don’t have to be a hound dog. It has cologne. If they’ve been hanging here for two years it’s impossible they could have this strong scent of cologne. Where’s your father? Where’s your father?"

"He’s not here, I’m just telling you," Yenisleidys says.

And that’s when two cops arrive. Diaz introduces herself and her team, shows the warrant, and explains why she’s there. The officers ask to speak to Yenisleidys alone.

Diaz and her team wait outside in the cold. Fifteen minutes later an officer emerges with news: Yenisleidys is tired and scared. She knows she could be in trouble and might lose her housing subsidy. She gives them directions to her father’s location, which turns out to be an apartment three blocks from Diaz’s office in downtown Miami. Diaz and another agent stay with Yenisleidys to make sure she doesn’t warn her father.

The three other agents jump into a truck and speed north. It’s nearly 3 a.m.

They arrive at the door of a sixth-floor apartment. Oscar Recinos bangs on the door. " Abre la puerta, por favor!" he barks. A middle-aged woman opens the door, and the agents ask if Jose Fernandez is there. When she says no, they push past her into the apartment. In a bedroom they find a man in bed wearing a brown t-shirt and boxers. He shouts that his name is Luis Gutierrez, but one of the agents pulls out a photo of Fernandez and holds it up.

"That’s him," one agent shouts, as another yells, " Voltéate! Voltéate! (turn around),"

The agents pounce; one holds a Taser to Fernandez’s back, another twists Fernandez’s arms behind him and cuffs him.

After two years, Fernandez is back in custody, and Diaz is about to recover a large chunk of her $100,500 bond. Of course, this only happened because the fugitive sneaked back into the country, apparently confident that no one was looking for him. Diaz can’t count on that happening again anytime soon.

Her excitement about the capture is short-lived. A few days later, a $300,000 bond in Broward for a man charged with fraud and illegally selling prescription drugs online came due. Diaz located him in Panama and requested an extradition. But it didn’t happen, and Best Bail Bonds had to pay.

Shortly after that her insurance company dropped her as a client.

Sitting inside her office on Northwest 17th Avenue, Diaz says she is confident she’ll find another insurer. (That takes her two weeks.) More disturbing, she says, is that despite her efforts the fugitive is getting away with his crime. "We put ourselves at risk going after these guys," she says. "We spend day and night working on these cases. It becomes part of our being."

Then she asks, “Now that I’m no longer going after him, do you think anyone else will do it?”

She swivels in her chair back to her computer, not waiting for an answer.
