Background post: former Atwater High songleader arrested for embezzlement
Steve Sziraki was in court to beg for leniency and ask for Kim’s release on the grounds she is not a flight risk.
He came to court on crutches (good sympathy vote strategy.)
He said Kim has been seeing a psychologist for two years and needs her prescription meds.
- Do they deny people of needed medication in jail? Really? I had no idea.
- Is this groundwork for some sort of “Kim is mentally unstable hence not responsible for her actions” defense? Because if so, I may vomit.
The take-away from the article (Sun-Star moved the story and broke the link!), and do try to get past the lead sentence, won’t you? – is this quote from Steve Sziraki:
"I'm not defending what she's done," he said, "but she's a good person."
So for everyone out there who said to wait for the courts to decide if she is really guilty and to give the girl a break because maybe she didn’t really do it, well, there you go. Straight from the husband’s mouth.
