You can bet his momma ain't too proud of him right now!

Got to love this...the guy suspected of torching 12 cars(arson)gets a $12,000 sucured bond and this guy, who broke into a couple churches and stole a safe and some coins, gets a $500,000 secured bond....really?...this judge is a moron...

Jason Davis has three pending charges against him. Charles Williams has fourteen.

Jason Davis has 18 misdemeanor convictions and four felony convictions. Charles Williams has 13 misdemeanor convictions and 11 felony convictions.

Who do you think is the greater flight risk? Because that is what bail is about. It is not set to punish. It is set to guarantee that the accused shows up for court.

He's a thief...he can afford it.
Paying a half a Mill in pennies for bail will learn the judicial system...especially after it takes 3 shifts of workers counting them on the table ;-)
