During the summer of 2012, I was informed by the grandparents of the incarcerated of their grandson in the Lake County Jail. Their greatest concern was that he had been there for over one year.

I mentioned this situation to the recently appointed District Attorney Ulys Stapleton. Later in early 2013, Stapleton related a happening in court about the inmate's family members. Their grandson had been sentenced to five plus years in the State Prison. After the sentencing he heard family members crying in the courtroom. He went over to explain to them why the five plus year sentence was given. They replied to him that they were not crying because of the sentence. They were crying because the grandson would no longer be held in the Lake County Jail.
