""has stayed sober, taken his medication"
Now if that isn't a contradiction...."
First off, you're quoting the news source, not an actual quote that was said by anyone in court. I've seen no less than 10 discrepancies between what has been presented or said in court, and what gets printed in the news.
Second, in this instance, that's actually not a contradiction, as the defense is indicating that Attias has taken all of his doctor recommended medication which combat his mental issues, and also has abstained from using any substance which was not recommended by a licensed and practicing mental health professional. This information (medication/using recreational drugs and/or alcohol) was not conjured up by the defense but has been presented by the state licensed mental health facility as factual.

"Attias' family and their wealth are manipulating for his release" - contactjohn
hey contactjohn, did you read the part where it said he's in a STATE mental facility? His parents are using their wealth to manipulate that how exactly?
Maybe you meant they're (Attias parents) paying for some high powered attorney to "manipulate his release"? I know it doesn't say in this story, but he's actually being represented by a public defender. Those are free.
The rest of you who say he's not "sane" enough to be in a HEAVILY MONITORED outpatient facility, you got your degrees in mental health where exactly? Maybe you think he'll be allowed to come and go as he pleases, and won't have to adhere to strict guidelines. Guidelines which, if a single one is not met, means he'll just get a slap on the wrist and not have to go back to the state hospital. That's not the case at all. But please, continue with your professional analyses, they're fascinating.
The one person who said "if he's now sane send him to a prison". That would be optimal, the best thing for all parties involved. Too bad it doesn't work that way, but it certainly should.
