Bailiff’s phony incident report sides with brutal judge who tossed mentally-ill man in jail

According to the dubious report, Judge Moody allegedly ordered Bayanos, a Filipino immigrant, to be taken into custody after he requested a Spanish language interpreter, according to public defenders Adachi and Passaglia. Passaglia said Moody attempted to “intimidate” Bayanos into a plea by “threatening” him twice with jail time.

Passaglia said he requested through legal processes that Moody state a valid reason for the detainment the next day. Shortly after, Moody also issued a contempt of court charge against Passaglia.

Adachi said the deputy’s account “is clearly without merit” because it contradicts a court transcript of the incident and “because no criminal charges have been filed.”

“There is no indication that Mr. Bayanos was being loud or disruptive and there certainly isn’t anything improper about a public defender putting his arm around a vulnerable client,” Adachi said Monday. “A judge lost his temper and threw a mentally ill man in jail without cause. To focus instead on how quickly or slowly a public defender moved away as deputies suddenly seized his client is preposterous.”

It’s how the Police State rolls in California.
