I take it the PO (or any PO) has no real say in her court on whether their client should be released early or not if this is her thinking and process in regards to RCs. A most stellar client will be damned no matter what.
Another six months of this and you earn your freedom? I am seeing a reelection campaign point here since she was elected to her 2nd Circuit Court position, not appointed as she was in the 5th District Court. She was also always on the prosecution side of the law in her career, so you can maybe presume that taints her thinking also with RCs.
Hang in their Zach, six months may seem long, but spring flowers will sprout still and you will be out of this mess soon enough.
