A D.C. Superior Court judge granted pretrial release to a man who was involved in a shootout with officers — a decision that doesn't sit well with Montgomery County police.
"This history suggests that releasing the defendant to the custody of his mother will not be sufficient to ensure that the defendant complies with requirements for his mental health treatment, or to ensure the safety of the community," Ms. Barlotta wrote.
His mother, Ramona Edelin, the executive director of the D.C. Association of Public Chartered Schools, "was home on the night of the offense, and she saw the defendant walk out the front door with a loaded handgun," wrote Assistant U.S. Attorney Allison Barlotta.
