So your response to someone who is presumed innocent and afraid of prison is to put them in jail? Perhaps we understand "presumed innocent" differently, because that does not seem very fair to me.

More likely he was suggesting a mental health facility where Swartz could receive a psychological/psychiatric evaluation and, if appropriate, treatment.

I find your interpretation very unlikely. Especially considering that Heymann likely does not have authority to send Swartz to such a facility, but does have a convenient jail available.
