FIRST ON 3: Judge sets Wright's bond at $3.5M cash


COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Columbus County judge has granted B.J. Wright's request for bond, but it won't be easy for him to get out of jail. The judge this morning set Wright's bond at $3.5 million cash, according to Assistant District Attorney Heath Nance. A spokesperson for Judge Douglas Sasser when bonds for several charges were combined, the total approached $4 million.

Nance says Wright's bond was revoked after the 25-year-old jumped out of courthouse window in August.

Nance says Wright is waiting to stand trial on a long list of charges.

Wright, who has ties to former state Sen. R.C. Soles, is still in custody in the Columbus County Jail.
