Chambers v. Mississippi, 405 U.S. 1205 (1972)

Chambers v. Mississippi

No. A-785 (71-5908)

Decided February 14, 1972

405 U.S. 1205


Application of Mississippi Attorney General, contending that petitioner's return to the community will create a dangerous situation, supported by affidavits of local law enforcement officials stating in conclusory terms that petitioner's presence will create a tense and explosive situation in the community, is denied and the order admitting petitioner to bail is reaffirmed, as petitioner is a lifelong resident of the community, owns his home, has his family there, served on the local police force, is a deacon in a local church, has no prior record, and was released on bail for 14 months before trial, apparently without incident.

See: 252 So.2d 217.
