There are still unsolved questions surrounding the case of Maurice Clemmons. Questions that prompt us to take a deeper look at the legal system and why Clemmons had been released from jail just last week despite pending felony charges and a lengthy criminal history.

According to a document posted by the Seattle newspaper, The Stranger, Clemmons had posted bail on his recent charges allowing him to walk free after being charged with assualt and child rape. The bail had been set at $190,000 but records indicate that he had only paid $15,000.

These charges were separate from those which were commuted in 2000 by then-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Clemmons had received a 95-year prison sentence in Arkansas in 1989 for a host of charges, including robberies, burglaries, thefts and bringing a gun to school.
