Manhattan suspect freed without bail Friday in assault case is busted again
By New York Daily News, January 12, 2019:
Serial assault suspect Eugene Webb became a two-time winner under New York’s lenient new bail laws at a court hearing Saturday night.
At Webb’s arraignment on his second arrest within a week, a Manhattan Criminal Court judge decided the law that took effect Jan. 1 barred him from ordering Webb to post cash or bond to avoid being jailed while awaiting trial.
Normally, such a decision would have allowed Webb, 26, to walk free. But Judge Michael Gaffey came up with another solution — he ordered Webb to be taken to a hospital.
“Based upon the recent acts and the assaults on people, and based upon the evidence that I see here before me and the aspects, Mr. Webb appears confused and disheveled,” the judge said. “And based upon that, I believe that he may have mental illness and may be a harm to himself, to others.”The suspect was escorted out of the courtroom by a half-dozen officers. It wasn’t clear what hospital he’d be sent to.Webb was busted Friday for his hostile panhandling outside a Greenwich Village bank, said police. That bust came just eight hours after he was freed without bail on charges he physically assaulted three Manhattan women.
Webb admitted he was high after smoking synthetic marijuana in between his Friday release and his latest arrest, sources indicated.
After Webb’s bust earlier in the week on the assault charges, a Manhattan judge — citing the state’s controversial new laws expected to eliminate cash bail in about 90% of arrests — ordered Webb’s released without bail despite prosecutors’ pleas that the repeat offender be held on $10,000 cash bail or $30,000 bond.
