@JD tippit -- Preliminary press releases almost always report the minimum amount from the bailRead More schedule. Final bail is usually adjusted after investigative reports are completed. The county D.A., or in this case the U.S. Attorney (bank robbery=federal offense), will seek enhancements base on the investigator's findings. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This explains why your friendly "sock sniffer's" original bail started at $5k, but escalated to $1M when evidence revealed that he was allegedly a serial pedophile who attempted to kidnap a young girl. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- When the US attorney gets this case, there is no doubt that the multiple counts of bank robbery with a firearm will cause his bail to soar. But, I doubt that you will see that level of follow-up in the media for this case. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BTW: I don't mind explaining these things to you and others who are unfamiliar with the legal system. I just find it sad that you tend to frequently embarrass yourself on the Patch by making absurd comments before you have made any apparent effort to educate yourself. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Perhaps, if you spent just a little more time gathering some facts on topics, you could provide insightful comments instead of the misinformed remarks that you usually make. I'm sure it would draw more positive attention, rather than the hateful disdain from others that seems to follow you. ~Please accept this as constructive criticism... good luck.

When I read local arrest reports a lot of the criminals are from out of the area. I certainly will watch for them.

Let's give the police and DA a chance. Maybe there are more charges looming out there. Hopefully,Read More he was charged with a few crimes first and they are reviewing other charges to charge him to extend his prison term. Maybe, some sexual charges still to come. I think there were several young women under 18 that this predator e-attacked. I can understand how a very young and immature girl could be afraid enough to agree to his demands rather than have inappropriate pictures released on the internet. Why young people are sending sexual pictures and selfies of themselves that will follow them throughout their lives is beyond me. They need more parent involvement. My parents always told us that you should not do anything that you would not want me to know about, that really stuck. Can you imagine being a parent, going on the internet and seeing a picture of your daughter nude? I would be so steamed. I think these young girls need to pay some consequences as well, especially if they did not tell their parents as soon as this began. What are parents for if not to protect. I would have contacted the police immediately.

If there's one common thread in politics it's an inability to rectify a broken and weighted tax system.

Elect the same people who refuse to correct the problem with existing tax complexity and the real problem will not go away. This level of evasion is nothing compared to the money that is hidden in the magicians hat, in countries like Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Switzerland, and Luxenburg, among others. Just waiting for some front man to grant amnesty to all money holding outside of the U.S. Politicians are all dishonest and should be held accountable.
