Remember the prosecutor in Ravalli County who prevented a pregnant woman from going to drug treatment because it would interfere with is hearing schedule? The one who six days later charged her with criminal endangerment of her fetus (a crime that doesn't even exist) because she tested positive for drugs?
Yeah. That one. Thorin Geist.
Bill Newman, attorney for the ACLU of Massachusetts, bestowed a dishonorable mention to Geist today in the podcast, "The Civil Liberties Minute." Newman gave Geist this month's "criminal justice hypocrisy award."
Take a minute to listen.
And if you can, take another minute to help the ACLU in its work protecting women from people like Geist.
