Assistant District Attorney Christopher Fernald said Dalton Cross is a public safety risk, a reason that Maine Pretrial Services did not want the liability of tracking him if he made bail. Defense counsel Jonathan Handleman said there is a strong self-defense element to the case, and said a cash bail of $1,000 is still a significant amount of bail for his client. Comment?
