It came to me this morning how LA county will justify Million dollar bail for Snell rather than 50k for PC 422 or 100K for PC 76.

Snell is a two strike felony offender in LA county, and with a third felony strike, he faces life in prison. Bail for charges which generally would result in a life in prison or death sentence if convicted have million dollar bail figures.

DA Cooley's office has stated that they would probably pursue Snell's case as a second strike.

I found envelopes at the post office which have prepaid postage, the postage is printed into the envelopes (no stamps) - 54 cents each. I'll send the envelopes Snell with his name in the upper left hand corner (maybe it will discourage Corrections Officers from pilfering the envelopes for personal use) along with some paper. He'll have to get a writing instrument from the COs.

My early 90's case in San Bernardino County was a 422 charge. I don't know what the bail schedule was then, but it is 50k now, no reason to think they would lower it over 20 years. They nailed me with 250k bail.

My frame up didn't start with city hall, the false police report was made an issue in front of the city council after about three weeks or so.
