When someone is arrested, is it right to place that person on parole while he or she is awaiting trial? If someone cannot pay a fine, should that person’s driver’s license be suspended?

Finally, someone has exposed and explained the obvious about some aspects of the Virginia Criminal Justice system.  With referenced facts peppered with personal experiences as a bail bondsman, Dan Barto has written a thoughtful and entertaining book challenging some of the Virginia’s established criminal justice policies.
