    Two years in debtor's prison without a hearing, much less an "inquiry"?

    I understand the concept of probation revocation, but even that warrants a hearing.

    I don't even get why the AppDiv overturned her imprisonment in November, and she was immediately transferred from minimum-security prison to the county jail, yet she wasn't released for nearly two months. There would've been no basis to reinstate the original $300,000 bail in view of her inability to pay $50,000. Why can't we do justice?
