Pregnant woman still 'huffing' after repeated arrests

(Continued)

O’Malley pleaded with the judge for a chance to have Douglas sent to a mental health facility for an evaluation and treatment rather than jail.

But Machera said his hands were tied by a “no bail” warrant from Leominster District Court, where officials wanted her kept in custody.

The judge set bail on the two new Salem cases at a total of $1,500.

After the bail was announced, Douglas buried her face in her cuffed hands. It was not clear whether she would be able to come up with that amount.

A pretrial hearing is set for July 22.
