By now everyone in the surrounding Long County, GA areas know about Christiane Judd and the mass bone count out at Loonie Farms. She had a rescue for animals and after leaving abruptly one night, it was found that many animals suffered and died in her care. After the huge clean-up and then the nice memorial that went on out at the former Loonie Farms location the hunt began to locate Christian Judd. She was located and caught in Buffalo, NY when trying to cross over into Canada. She was trying to flee the country to escape felony and misdemeanor charges.
She was extradited back to Long County and went before the judicial system. At that time back in June she was denied bail and sent to another facility for holding until she could get her court appointed lawyer to plead her case. Now Christiane Judd is here on an expired visa and should remain in the custody of the judicial system as she is a flight risk. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) states on their website they have a Jail and Prison program. It states “ERO officers and agents assigned to CAP in federal, state and local prisons and jails throughout the country screen inmates and place detainers on criminal aliens to process them for removal before they are released to the general public. After the screening process and interviews, ERO initiates proceedings to remove the criminal aliens from the United States.” This would make it to where she would automatically be sent back to Germany, or at least after her criminal hearings. Did ICE even know about Christiane Judd and her expired visa? No they did not. After talking with the Duty Agent, they were never told by the Long County Sheriff’s Department about her. They were suppose to.
Christiane Judd has gone before the judge last week at a preliminary hearing and the judge set her bond at $10,000 cash. Now she is facing charges of two felonies and one misdemeanor. The felony charges include one for animal cruelty and the misdemeanor charge has to do with the animal remains on the property. As it stands right now, Christiane Judd is still behind bars. She does not seem to have the money to bail herself out and no one is stepping up to the plate yet to bail her out either. With her being a flight risk (being caught trying to flee the country) and here on an expired visa, it is just hard to understand why any judge would allow Christiane Judd bond. It should be the judge’s duty to keep her within the walls of the jail system until she is extradited back to Germany due to her expired visa. If she get’s out there is no guarantee she will stay here in this country, and once out there are endless possibilities for her. The Duty Agent at ICE is checking into her visa now to determine if it is in-fact expired and if so, by their laws, she cannot be released. It should be interesting to see how all of this will go in the next few days. Will ICE catch it all in time before she gets bailed out?
