Bail denied for Sabhnani couple, jailed until trial

Courtesy of PACER, I have learned that the Sabhnani couple, charged with several counts of federal felony statutes, has been denied bail. The judge said that they were a significant flight risk, therefore various proposals for house arrest were rejected (the prosecution has always maintained that no bail should be given). You can read in full the Sabhnani Detention Order.

I must admit I am very impressed by the swift and firm US justice system. Of course we all hear how good law and order in the US, but to see it in action (and not just through TV shows 🙂 ) is something else.
