In this news clip from KTTV, criminal defense attorney Jerod Gunsberg discusses the disproportionate reality of the justice system between the rich versus the poor. After 23-year-old Saudi exchange student Thamer Mansur Albalwi was arrested for the alleged rape and torture of a young woman, his bail was set at $3 million. Considering his immense financial resources, Albalwi was able to get out of jail on bail by paying 10% of total bail down and securing the rest with real estate.
In this interview on AirTalk, criminal defense attorney Jerod Gunsberg discusses the Kelly Thomas case on police misconduct. The Thomas case brought several Fullerton officers to trial for police brutality and use of excessive force following the death of a homeless man in California. Jerod Gunsberg comments on possible bias held by a local prosecutor’s office dealing with the conviction processes of police officers they typically work with on a daily basis. He suggests that an outside panel of lawyers could have been sourced to maximize objectivity in the criminal justice system with respect to cases of police brutality.
