Hikind Slams Manhattan DA Over Hate Suspect's Bail

01/19/2012

Two judges and the Manhattan district attorney were too soft on a man suspected of anti-Semitic hate crimes, Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind said on Thursday.

David Haddad was released on his own recognizance by Kings County Criminal Court Judge Linda Poust-Lopez, while New York State Acting Supreme Court Judge Abraham Clott in Manhattan set bail at $2,500, which Hikind called " nothing short of shocking. Manhattan DA Cy Vance requested a bail of only $5,000. New Yorkers deserve an explanation."
