Furloughed inmate’s brother arrested

The brother of a man granted a five-hour furlough from jail for Thanksgiving was arrested today on a drug charge. Steven Kinard, 50, was booked just before 4:30 p.m. today, according to Spokane County Jail records. Kinard is the younger brother of Terrence A. “T-Baby” Kinard. U.S. Magistrate Judge Cynthia Imbrogno last week granted Terrence Kinard, who has failed to show up for court 75 times, a five-hour furlough to join his family for Thanksgiving dinner. Kinard’s lawyer said the family feared for his 80-year-old mother’s health as well as the health of Steven Kinard. The family will be required to pay for two law enforcement officers to accompany Terrence Kinard. The U.S. Attorney’s Office said last week that likely won’t happen. The elder Kinard is to be sentenced Dec. 8 on a federal cocaine conviction. He faces about six years in prison. The brothers remain in jail.
