Former Quartzsite Mayor Ed Foster Out (of Jail!) on Bail

• Desert Messenger dot blogspot
On October 7, 2011 former Quartzsite mayor Ed Foster turned himself in after acting Quartzsite Magistrate Karen Slaughter issued a warrant for his arrest. According to a press release issued yesterday by Quartzsite Police Chief Jeff Gilbert, Foster didn't show up to court to face charges of nonfeasance in public office. Foster was booked into the La Paz County Jail by the Parker Police Department on a $1,500.00 secured appearance bond.

Foster, who was ousted from the office of Mayor of Quartzsite following a recall election on August 30, 2011, was evidently sent a summons by the court, but it was returned unclaimed by the Post Office.
According to Quartzsite Police, Foster had personally obtained copies of the file, including the summons, from the magistrate court prior to the hearing at which he failed to appear. Foster allegedly admitted to the Court staff that he did have a copy of the summons.
