Last month there were loud cries from Public Defender Howard Finkelstein and his office complaining that County Judge Jay Hurley had slapped a $1,000 bond on a homeless man accused of possessing Flakka, a dangerous outlawed drug.

The PDs office believed that Fenton Ross should be released without bond. But Hurley, seeing the defendant had two previous drug arrests in a little more than a year and had home making it questionable he would show up for court, imposed a bond.

Hurley and Assistant Public Defender Dale Miller clashed over the bond.
