  1. “His bond was set at $2.5 million secured.” I had to read that twice! Are you sure he was charged here in Wayne County? That sure doesn’t sound like a Wayne County kind of bond. Have our magistrates FINALLY stepped up?

    • Poster says:

      No Way Have They “Stepped Up”. There’s not enough detention/jail space or court time available. Until those two issues are addressed, bonds will continually have to be set low. I’m not sure why this one’s so high.
