Crow Serving Time at Home Not at Jail

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — The Josephine County jail is only able to house the most violent or high-risk offenders. It means for one woman with what animal control called one of the worst hoarding cases in the history of the county, will not spend her sentence in jail.

Kandi Crow was allowed home detention to serve her 40 days. A board of supervisors at the Josephine County Community Corrections Department granted her this option because of her health problems. This option is allowed for those who commit misdemeanors and some felonies.

The board looks over the person’s criminal history and the severity of the crime. The cost to house one person a day at the jail is a hundred dollars by the county but for home detention, the offender pays the county 15 dollars a day. The few bucks goes to off-set the costs of the ankle bracelet and the officer who keeps track of those on the home detention list.

Even if the department wanted to house Crow at the jail, there are more violent offenders ahead of her using the limited beds.  If there is space, the county anticipate using the beds for offenders who commit person-to-person crimes.

The department says if Crow breaks any of those rules set by the corrections department, she will not have the option of home detention and could serve her time in jail.

    Oh, that’s nice! Those poor helpless, innocent animals I am sure were sick and had to sit in their own feces! This makes ME SICK Kandi Crow that YOU get to go to the comforts of your own home! I think they should make you go back when they have the room for you. You aren’t getting punished at all! You should be ashamed of yourself.

    How about leaving her in a cage without enough food or water, like she did to those animals she abused? She could use a good fast, or at least go without food for those 40 days. Just sayin…

    WOW! No punishment at all.

    Gee, Oregon you sure don’t care much about animals. I guess person to animal crimes are OK, I bought an innocent 3 month old filly from your auction you could count every one of her ribs. From what I understand, this isn’t the first time she has done this. She got away with it before and now again. I guess it’s all about money, that’s do bad.

    So basically, her life goes on, just as usual–where is the punishment in that? Isn’t there supposed to be a deterrent to crime–isn’t that what the ‘so-called’ justice system is for?
    If our courts aren’t there to protect the innocent and helpless, then what is the purpose for them?

    If Justice fails to protect those who need it the most, then it is Justice itself that should be on trial.

    This is not the first time for her, over 20 years ago this woman did the same thing in Southern California. She had dogs tied out in the heat along a chainlink fence and at the time had Thoroughbreds, that were horribly thin, no shelters and mostly no water, or bad enough that they would not drink it. How many times is she going to do this? I am sure she is sitting in her nice cozy trailer, eating and drinking when she wants and not suffering in the elements of winter. Shame on you Kandi, shame on you!!!!!
