Amanda Burnside Wiki – Amanda Burnside Biography
Amanda Burnside, a Southampton woman accused of setting fires at three homes, was released on her own recognizance despite prosecutors’ request that the judge set bail at $500,000 or $1 million. A judge ordered him to report for supervised release within 72 hours. Instead, according to authorities, she waited less than two hours before purchasing a knife, entered a Dollar Tree store and attempted to rob it. The fiasco prompted District Attorney Ray Tierney, the lead prosecutor in the Gilgo Beach serial killer case, to criticize the state’s bail laws.

Clearly, the dangerousness of this defendant, who allegedly attempted to set fire to three homes, was not adequately considered, given that two hours after her arraignment, she allegedly committed another serious and violent crime,” Tierney said Monday night. “Furthermore, the danger this defendant posed to society could never be adequately considered to the extent that dangerousness is not a bail factor that judges can consider under New York State law.” New York’s unpopular bail reform laws have been a thorny issue for Democrats in state and local jurisdictions. Suffolk County Republican Ed Romaine will become the first Republican county executive in 20 years after last week’s election victory. He campaigned tirelessly against soft-crime policies, and ads supporting his campaign bluntly told county residents: “We don’t need another liberal.” Republicans now control all seats in Suffolk and Nassau counties – two large suburbs east of New York City – and all four congressional seats in the region.
