PSA: End Bail for Violent Criminals 4

Quavon Ewing, 32, is well known to Chicago police.

In 2017 he was convicted of criminal sexual abuse and other crimes for attacking women. He received a three-year sentence.

After getting out, he was convicted again on felony charges of aggravated battery. After he completed that sentence, Chicago police discovered he had committed a new felony by failing to register as a sex offender.

At his hearing, despite his record of violence, Judge Maryam Ahmad released him back on the street.

Ewing was arrested and charged with attempted kidnapping and aggravated battery.
