Roe-Taylor shared on Wednesday that Hartman is not mentally stable since her actions had led to a relapse of her arrest. He shared that she is continuously struggling like a homeless person from within and is up against a system that is not appropriately designed for mental health problems. Roe-Taylor also mentioned that Hartman was fine before the arrest for one and a half years and was cooperative without any such incident.  However, sadly her release is a part of what happens sometimes during a trial that has made her relapse, and therefore relapses must be addressed through treatment.
