A capital murder suspect in Texas had a court-ordered ankle monitor removed by the device's operators because the company reportedly said he didn't pay them a monitoring fee to wear the tracker.
Wait ... what?
The defendant is required to pay for his ankle device monitoring services? And doesn't have to charge it either?
What date is it? 04/01?
I wonder if other felons ... ahem ... defendants ... will catch a wind of this and follow suit. :)
Officer: "Where were you all day?"
Defendant: "Right here, at home"
Officer: "But we don't have your location information for the whole day"
Defendant: "Well, you just gotta take my word for it then"
Officer: "Okay, at least charge your monitor, mmmkay?"
Defendant: "I'll get right on that, officer"
