Still locked up

I got an email the other day from a family member of Ellen DeBondt, an update on where the Amber Steim situation is now and what’s likely to happen going forward.
More delays, this time as a result of the prosecuting attorney’s parents being ill and her need to be away and caring for them. The trial, which was scheduled to begin in February, will get pushed further into the future.
Which is not real good news for those who are seeking justice, or closure, or some small sign that the legal system is not completely constipated. Of course, it could be worse. At least the defendant is still locked up, and will remain locked up, for the forseeable future. In order for Amber Steim to be released on bail again, she’ll have to go through a hearing and, even more problematic – considering her character and self-destructive bent – the party posting her bail will have to take responsibility for her actions upon her release.
Considering her demonstrated inability to put the bottle down, for someone else to assume responsibility for whatever buffoonery she might get into next seems like a pretty high bar to clear. It’s hard to know how long the current situation will hold up, but at least the roads are safer for now.
