Bail reform strikes again, literally. Check what happens to a repeat bank robber too.
Via NY Post:
The homeless man cut loose without bail despite a history of unprovoked street attacks has been busted again — just a few hours after his release, police said Saturday.
Eugene Webb, 26, was arrested Friday night for aggressive panhandling near a bank entrance in Greenwich Village, just one day after he was hauled in for allegedly slugging a 23-year-old woman in the face so hard that two of her teeth were knocked out.
Webb, who police say is homeless, also attacked a second woman near Grand Central Terminal just hours after the Wednesday attack, punching the 35-year-old and kicking the back of her head, prosecutors said.
But despite a long rap sheet of at least four other arrests, Judge Ann Thompson cut the serial slugger loose under the state’s new bail reform regulations at his Friday morning arraignment.
A few hours later, Webb —who grinned as he left court—was back on his old turf in the Village, where cops caught him aggressively panhandling within 10 feet of a Chase Bank entrance on W. 4th Street near Grove Street at about 7 p.m., authorities said.
