Their time in jail has cost taxpayers $116 per day, or a total of $5,558, according to Broward Sheriff’s estimates.
At a court hearing for his previous arrest, Hodgson was ordered to stay in the Broward Outreach Center for 30-days. Broward Judge John “Jay” Hurley even arranged to have a Broward Sheriff’s deputy give Hodgson a ride from the jail to the shelter on Friday.
Hodgson checked in, and checked out. Hodgson was back behind bars just four days later.MORE NEWS: Florida Doctors Blast Governor Ron DeSantis Over COVID-19
