Goofballs at Sarasota Herald Tribune Want Better Life for Violent Ex-Con Lawrence Gudmestad DOB 11/30/1963


Goofballs at Sarasota Herald Tribune Want Better Life for Violent Ex-Con Lawrence Gudmestad DOB 11/30/1963. HERALD TRIBUNE, Another BOO-HOO sad life story this time about Violent Ex-Con Lawrence Gudmestad. If Lawrence Gudmestad, who suffers from schizoaffective disorder and is incompetent to stand trial, leaves Coastal Behavioral Healthcare, he will go to jail. SARASOTA — Lawrence Gudmestad doesn’t want anything other than to feel better. That’s why he’s consistently been going to his doctor’s appointments and taking his medication, both for a schizoaffective disorder he suffers from and for Hepatitis C. When his Hep C drug started affecting his mood — just as he’d been warned — he voluntarily checked himself into Sarasota Memorial Hospital for crisis stabilization at Coastal Behavioral Healthcare. But Gudmestad’s criminal history, carelessness and an administrative failure have combined to leave him trapped at Coastal since Aug. 21, lest he get arrested. Gudmestad’s severe mental illnesses mean he cannot be jailed under Florida law, Gudmestad’s defense attorney John Torraco said. “That’s what the really heinous (part is). Jail is not an option.“Gudmestad’s the best he’s ever been,” Torraco said. “Larry has always been compliant with the court’s order, he’s always taken his medication ... he’s doing everything humanly possible to address his condition ... Larry is honestly one of the kindest, most caring, gentle and thoughtful people I’ve ever met.” WHAT THE HELL, READ ON. THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT THIS GUY WILL KILL A COP IF HE STAYS ON THE STREETS.
