21st annual Broward Jail and Bail to benefit the American Cancer Society


You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to speak to an attorney, and to have an attorney present during any questioning. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be provided for you at government expense.
Having a bad dream?

No you are not “under arrest.” The rights you have just heard are all in fun and part of David Singer’s annual Jail and Bail event to benefit the Broward County chapter of the American Cancer Society.

Some of South Florida’s most high-profile figures will appear in front of a judge later this month and answer charges ranging from “illicit basket-weaving” to “needle dusting.” Required to “post bail” to secure their release, it is all to benefit the American Cancer Society and cancer research.

This year’s Jail and Bail honorary chairman is former Miami Dolphins linebacker and ESPN NFL analyst Jason Taylor.

Following in the footsteps of legendary criminal defense attorney Roy Black, NSU Chancellor Ray Ferrero, Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti, State Attorney Michael Satz, radio personality Paul Castronovo, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former Florida Marlins coach Jack McKeon, WPLG newscaster Kristi Krueger, former Miami Dolphin Bernie Kosar and WQAM personality Joe Rose, Taylor continues the tradition of influential leaders that have lent their name and support in the effort to fight cancer.

“Arrested at their home or place of business, jailbirds will be housed in cells pending an appearance before the judge,” said Hollywood personal injury attorney David Singer. “Detainees call family and friends in an effort to raise money for their release and in support of the American Cancer Society.”

Having committed himself to the American Cancer Society, Singer has chaired Jail & Bail for more than 20 years.

Donors pitch in to “bail out” their family and friends during a 90 minute “detention.” Dozens of local business and community leaders take part in this yearly ritual.

Since the start, Jail and Bail has raised over $2.4 million for the Broward unit of the American Cancer Society. For 2012, Singer has targeted a goal of $200,000.

This year’s Jail and Bail will be held June 26th – 29th in the lobby of the Airport Sheraton, 1825 Griffin Road, Dania Beach, with more than 150 local politicians and community leaders being “arrested.”

The four-day event concludes on August 9th with an “Up the River Cruise.”
