Padilla Offers To Post $1.35 Million Bail For Misty Croslin

Some thoughts regarding Leonard Padilla, the west coast Bounty Hunter / Bondsman offering to bail Misty Croslin out of jail - and the benefit it would provide in finding Haleigh Cummings.

Misty Croslin has no conception YET as to the magnitude of trouble that she is already in - nor do her parents - obviously, as in her mind it would take just $10,000 to get out of jail (10% of $50,000! - these people are beyond stupid).

She could not appreciate or conceive that based on her bond of $1,350,000 it would cost at minimum $135,000 (plus collateral) for her release, and she would have to come up with either a dead or an alive Haleigh or be put right back in jail. The benefit goes to Padilla - more free publicity for signing his name guaranteeing payment should Misty flee (highly unlikely).

So let's avoid this circus - and let Misty and Co. sit just where they are - and whenever the lightbulb in her little brain comes on - and she goes OMG!, I have nothing to lose by telling everything I know, only then will justice for Haleigh triumph all the self serving profiteers who want to make names for themselves off the back of this innocent little child.

In my opinion, there is no benefit in the quest for justice - to bail out Misty Croslin. She has admitted to her father in the recently released jailhouse video of their visit that she sold prescription drugs eight or nine times to the undercover Putnam County cop, thereby sealing her fate - which leads her directly to prison. If she is fortunate to qualify under the Youthful Offender Act, she can expect up to 6 years. If she doesn't, she can expect to spend a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years for each of the 8 counts - potentially up to a life sentence.

If the State Attorneys Office in Putnam County wants to play Major League hardball with her, and if Misty does have knowledge as to what really happened to Haleigh, she would have absolutely nothing to lose by talking.
