Biden Judge Released Murderer from Jail
Christy Bautista, 31, was brutally murdered on April 1 and George Sydnor, 43, was taken into custody by the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Police Department. Judge Sean Staples, who was appointed by President Joe Biden to the DC Superior Court, released the career criminal on bail. The episode is often cited by detractors as another example of the Left’s “woke” response to crime failing.
In Washington, DC, violent crime has apparently increased dramatically as a result of the city’s leniency toward offenders. Congress recently intervened to overturn suggested sentencing caps since the problem had grown so terrible. Not even Biden dared to block the lawmakers.

Typical DC lawlessness.

According to a news release from the White House, Biden appointed Staples to preside over the District of Columbia Superior Court in June 2021. The nominee and the other people on the president’s list were described as “extraordinarily qualified, experienced, and devoted to the rule of law and our Constitution” at the time.
But, Sydnor was released once Staples took the DC seat, overturning the decision of the previous judge to keep the defendant in detention for two weeks without bail. Despite the man’s lengthy criminal past, which included convictions for rape, domestic abuse, and armed robbery, the newly appointed justice made the choice.
The senseless, indiscriminate murder Sydnor is accused of committing only a few months later was made possible by Staples’ reckless decision to free him. According to Fox News, Snydor was discovered by authorities trying to light a cigarette while drenched in blood in the victim’s hotel room. The majority of Bautista’s nearly 30 stab wounds were in her back, although she also received wounds to her head, torso, neck, and spinal column.
Sydnor has a number of court dates coming up. On May 3, he will go before a judge for neglecting to check in after his parole, which resulted in him becoming a fugitive at the time of his capture. For his arraignment on the homicide counts, he will return on May 8.
