Inmate 210717- Bernie Kerik

Every now and again in Amerikan jurisprudence a dog does have its day. Such is the day for the former Police Commissioner Bernard B. Kerik.
The former New York city Mayor Rudy Giuliani appointed Kerik to his prior top cop position. Kerik also became a hero after 9/11. The former Commissioner was also considered for Homeland Security Officer before scandal of corruption thwarted his nomination.

 Since that time he has been embroiled in litigation that erupted into bail revocation being ordered by the Hon. Stephen C Robinson. According to the New York Daily News, Judge Robinson became furious and threw Kerik in the clink after prosecutors said the former top cop and the head of his legal defense fund engaged in a subversive campaign to sway potential jurors.
