Last Sunday, just before midnight, mega-lawyer Blair Berk got an ominous signal. The signal came from the SCRAM device that Lindsay agreed to wear on her ankle. The device tests for alcohol use and sounds an alarm to a designated person when alcohol is detected. We've learned that Berk was the designee.
As soon as Berk learned there was a problem, she frantically tried to locate Lindsay. But time ran out before Berk could stop the runaway train wreck. Less than two hours after the SCRAM device signaled, Lindsay was in custody.
If ever there was a person NOT to be the designated person to monitor the SCRAM device, this is certainly the case.
As the lawyer, whose job it is to keep their client out of trouble and out of jail, in the role of designee, they can keep the goings on of the offender from ever reaching the proper authority.
That certainly was a stupid move on the part of the Judge, assigning the attorney as the designee.
I often wonder what goes on in the minds of the Judges and what qualifications they have to have in order to be Judge. Seems to me like the qualification bar is pretty low!!
