The System 'Baffles' Me: FL Bail Agent Sounds Off on Accused Cop Killer Who Was in US Illegally
Pete Hegseth and the Florida Bail Agents Association president discussed the case of an illegal immigrant who allegedly murdered a police officer in Fort Myers this week.
Desmaret, a former boxer who may have overstayed his visa, has an "extensive criminal history" and was released by a pretrial services program shortly before the attack on Jobbers-Miller, reports said.
Haiti native Wisner Desmaret, 29, is accused of gunning down Adam Jobbers-Miller, 29, Hegseth reported.
Desmaret, a former boxer who overstayed his visa, has an "extensive criminal history" and was released by a pretrial services program shortly before the attack on Jobbers-Miller.
"I don't know how he slipped through the cracks [of that program]," bail agent Matt Jones said. "I don't know how pretrial release [thought they] were going to watch over him."
Jones said Desmaret's criminal history and immigration status should have been red flags for the agency.
He said he welcomes immigrants to America, but said they should come legally and the "right way."
An attorney with the local public defenders office said Desmaret's family has "no means to bond him out."
"[Desmaret] has significant mental health issues," Sean Czarnomski said, according to the Fort Myers News-Press.
