Jail Shrink Worried About Bernie Kerik
A cryptic hearing was held in federal court today in Bernie Kerik's case.
Specifics about the disgraced former top cop's behavior were not revealed, but a memo to Federal Judge Stephen Robinson from the medical and psychiatry director of the Westchester County jail detailed concern "that was not ordinary," according to the judge.
Judge Robinson said Dr. Mahler told him there "were symptoms he (Kerik) displayed, that when combined with his circumstances that they thought placed him at risk." "There were things unexplained described to me that were either said or done that raised a level of concern for them," said Robinson.
Another hearing will be held Monday. The Judge is asking whether Bernie will waive his confidentiality rights with respect to his medical records.
