Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- Once a dapper Beverly Hills attorney known for his bow tie, Richard Fine has been held in solitary confinement at Los Angeles County Men's Central Jail for 14 months, even though he's never been charged with a crime.
Fine, a 70-year- old taxpayer's advocate who once worked for the Department of Justice, is being held for contempt of court.

This sounds like California. This isn't the worse thing happening in the jails and court system out here. At least hes in solitary, who knows how long he'd last in a tank. With money on his books, hes prolly just fine.
At least they are not avalanching him with charges. Or giving him a public defender who works with the DA, or a public defender who won't even talk to you, or look at your case properly.

His heart is in the right place but to bad his attorney indoctrination has worked against him. he is in jail by his own consent to give jurisdiction to the court and make himself a ward of the court by contracting with said court. Not to mention they see him as a traitor so I am sure they are even breaking thier own laws to keep him confined.

This is truly disgusting what has happened, but somehow not unexpected.
