A University of Florida senior jailed on a charge of sexually assaulting a fellow student was released last week after a judge deemed him a “high-achieving student.”
Ian Milaski, a 21-year-old resident hall assistant, was arrested on Aug. 29, after a female student called university police and accused Milaski of forcibly kissing her, pinning her onto his bed and attempting to put his fingers inside her days earlier. Milaski was jailed on charges of battery and false imprisonment, with bond set at $182,000 ($125,000 USD.)
A judge later ordered him released on his own recognizance, agreeing with an emergency defense motion that described Milaski as a “high-achieving student,” according to local outlet WCJB. The bail-reduction motion said Milaski is “slated to graduate in May 2020″ with a double major, and “personally performed more than 210 hours of community service in the last two years.”
Milaski’s motion also argued that he needed to help his parents prepare for Hurricane Dorian and tend to his double major as a senior about to graduate, according to The Alligator, the University of Florida (UF) student newspaper.

Both are high-achieving.
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

The worst thing about this story is how non-unique it is. How many times have we heard this same thing about judges giving rapists a pass because they have a bright future because they’re so smart or talented or from a good family (i.e. rich). They don’t seem to give too much consideration to the victim’s future.

Not only rape; how many times do we hear of ‘high-achievers’ & wealthy people getting a pass on almost everything they do that harms others? Bankster mortgage bailout = exhibit A. While the victims went homeless or worse.
Purdue Pharma DICTATING to the government & courts after being judged culpable = Exhibit B.
