Aitabdel Salem was arrested on November 21, 2014 for allegedly attacking a NYPD officer after being accused of stealing a coat in New York City, and his bail was set at $25,000.

Only 5 days later for his follow up court date, Salem was not at present when a judge dropped his bail to only $1.

A few days later, after not being produced in court again, the judge released him because prosecutors had not convened a grand jury as required by law.

Salem had several more court appearances, and while being held at Riker’s Island, he wasn’t brought to court. A prison chaplain eventually paid his $1 bond on April 15, 2015, 5 months after he was arrested.

A lawsuit is now underway by Salem who claims he was never informed of the $1 bail due to never being taken to court while in jail. He is now serving up to 5 years after being convicted August 2016 for felony assault and criminal tampering charges.
