  1. Why am I the first one to comment here? Why has this outrageous miscarriage of justice been allowed to go on for over a year? I just heard about this today. I have never heard or read a thing about Richard Fine in the media in all this time. If this attorney has committed no crime, how is it possible that he is languishing in a horrible jail cell indefinitely? That goes against all that is rational, humane or LEGAL. If I were being held in jail without cause I would want my fellow Americans to stand up for justice and demand my release. I will look further into this situation, and if it is all that is stated on this site, I will support Fine at that jail, even if I'm the only one. There should be a candlelight vigil every night until he is released.
