Man charged with breaking into Fields Corner residence then locking himself into bathroom

A judge ordered a man who mouthed off at him held for 90 days on a contempt charge after he'd arraigned him on charges he broke into a Paisley Park home Saturday night, then tried to barricade himself in the bathroom.

According to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office, Marshall Burton, 38, was in Dorchester Municipal Court for arraignment for unarmed burglary and resisting arrest for an incident around 11:25 p.m. at a residence on the Fields Corner street:

Boston Police responded to a Paisley Park address after a resident called 911 and reported that an unknown man had locked himself in the bathroom of her home. The man, later identified as Burton, refused officers' orders to open the door. After discussion with the resident, officers used force to open the door, which Burton had attempted to barricade. He was placed in handcuffs after violently resisting apprehension.

In court Monday morning, prosecutors asked for bail of $500 but also that his bail for trying to break into a Boston Medical Center building on Albany Street on Jan. 2 be revoked. That arrest came about two months after he was was arrested for unarmed robbery outside the Southampton Street shelter - and for attacking and injuring three Boston cops trying to take him into custody.

Judge Jonathan Tynes set bail for the Paisley Park incident at $50 but agreed to revoke Burton's bail in the Boston Medical Center case, after which Burton "launched an extended outburst that disrupted the proceeding," according to the DA's office. Tynes then held a separate hearing and ordered Burton held for 90 days for contempt of court.

Innocent, etc.

Was the culprit wearing a raspberry beret?

Judge Tynes initially set a $50 bail for a guy who broke into someone's home and violently resisted apprehension? I wonder if he would be so generous if this was his or his daughter's house.

The amount of serious crimes committed by those who have previously been caught and should already be behind bars is staggering. There are actual innocent victims from these policies put in place to protect the supposed victimhood of criminals.

I am honestly not trying to be fresh but isn't the bail for this crime just a statement of sort because they rescinded his bail on his last (well, caught anyway) crime?

90 days in the House of Correction & bail revoked in BMC Central. DAs have the option to request a dangerousness hearing at every arraignment. That keeps a defendant locked up until an evidentiary hearing within a few days, but it also requires witnesses to appear and gives the accused and his lawyer at least a chance to arrange and present alternatives to incarceration like court ordered treatment for drugs, alcohol, or mental illness, the need for which seems pretty obvious given the case facts and his courtroom behavior. But it's so much easier and faster to just set a bail, which is why the jail is full of defendants who are untried and legally presumed innocent but just don't have the cash to get out. You want him locked up? Give him a trial and convict him.

Rant over.

Today I learned that there's a neighborhood in Boston called Paisley Park. That makes me happy.

Just one street, but, yes, it's one of those interesting Boston street names, up there with Lorna and Doone (which intersect) and Gurney, which turns into Halleck (although that's only notable for "Dune" fans). Ruggles is just a great name.
