“Just an update we are waiting to hear from the judge regarding the release of Mr Demons to recieve medical care and treatment,” Cohen wrote on Instagram. “Supplemental motion was filed today detailing the jail having Mr. Demons share a cell with another COVID19 positive inmate. This is not recommended by any medical physician.”
Cohen is pleading with the judge to let Melly stay at home for the time been, while the jail which he is in is currently struggling with the coronavirus pandemic.
“The jails and prisons are not prepared to handle this crisis,” Cohen asserted. “Rules on alcohol based hand sanitizer and wipes must be lifted at a bare min. Inmates are passing trays, jail phones and shared items that are not sanitized when passed between inmates.”
