Black Woman Who Could Have Been Released for $30 Dies After Spending 150 Days in Custody

86 Views

Janice Dotson-Stephens, 61, died in jail on Friday after living there for months because nobody paid $30 to a bondsman to cover her bail.

Dotson-Stephens was arrested in Bexar County, Texas, in July for criminal trespassing, a misdemeanor. Her bail was set at $300. But she didn't arrange for payment ($30 if she had gone through a bail bondsman), and according to court records she allegedly was simply refusing to talk or be interviewed. A psychiatric evaluation was ordered in August, but she remained in jail until she died, reportedly of natural causes, in the jail infirmary on Friday afternoon. Her family however was not informed that Janice Dotson-Stephens was even in jail..and now the situation has become a legal matter..

R.I.P. Janice Dotson-Stephens, I extend my condolences and sympathies to family members and friends. Sounds like the system didn't care enough to determine the whereabouts of Janice family members or get this lady mental treatment like they do for white people even when they commit the most horrendous crimes. The death sounds suspicious as well. There are a lot of healthy 61yr olds still living, natural causes, this is BS.
