No Bond? No Problem
You know this guy is hoping Dart's "no cash bond" proposal comes through:
- Businessman Willie Wilson bailed 46 inmates out of the Cook County Jail Wednesday afternoon.
This isn't the first time he's stepped in to help non-violent detainees who can't make bail.
According to a spokesperson, Wilson has spent $50,000 of his own money to bail out a total of 107 people.
Wilson is also planning a Thanksgiving meal for all of the people he has helped get out of jail.
It's his money and he can do what he wants with it.
But we're curious - what's his success rate? Have all of his bets (and let's be honest, this is a gamble of sorts), made their next court dates? Have they pled out? Been convicted? Nolle Prosequi? That would be an interesting bit of data.
