I am outraged at the injustice of a murderer who can get on bond and be with his family and there is a little girl who is not able to be with hers. Where was D.A. when this was happening? Do they think that we are going to forget what has happened to our family. You can stay in jail for drugs,but not for rape and murder. We do appreciate all of the people out there that does remember.

I agree that this creep should stay behind bars for the rest of his life. To say the least. Not only has he hurt Bridgette's family, but he has also hurt the people that loved and cared for him. He had them all fooled and now they are paying for it. He is free to go while there are people that are going to suffer the rest of their lives for his crime. Where is the justice?

Don't jump the gun so soon,with all the back cases her office was handed ,it's a wonder she's been able to get anything done.People complain that they don't see anything in the paper about pending cases or cases she has finished with,Grahams a gossip town,like most small towns,and if nothing is in the papers such as a bragging D/A theres nothing for anyone to talk about.People should consider than in smaller towns ANY news is better than no news.I do wish her office would let the paper publish who has been indicted and for what,like Mineral Wells and Wichita's papers do.But then people write letters in the paper in Graham ,gripeing about old stories being published a long time after they happened.For instance the elderly man thats been charged with sexual assault there in Graham,it made front page ,but when the paper published the letter about what all had happened in the past year in the final years paper, a woman later wrote a letter complaining about it,said it reopened old wounds an heartaches !So what do you people want from your D/A gossip ,pending cases or facts and criminals getting what they deserve?The public trying to put this guy on trial could cause more harm than good.Try giving your L/E and the people who have to handle the investigations a little more support .

Sometimes Jesse ,people never get things right with God,because they haven't gotten things right with themselves.Some people are just evil ,even tho they come from good familys and were raised good .A rotten apple can fall from a good tree,just as good apple can fall from a bad tree ,it's Gods way.

Dawg1, I agree with you that some bad people come from some of the best homes. But I don't believe that God makes people evil. The devil does this. As far as him getting right with God, I pray that he does. I had some bad things happen to me as a child and always felt that if that person never asked me for forgiveness than how can God forgive them? This is not for us to decide. We are lucky to have an all forgiving God and the final decision is up to Him. While justice should be served here on earth, God will decide his eternity, not us. All we can do is pray for everyone.

I'm outraged at the injustice that legal maxim "innocent until proven guilty" must be reserved for Russian communists and Chinamen, because it sure doesn't exist here in the United States of Communism.

The dude had a right to bail, he proved he wasn't a flight risk or a risk to other people, let the dude have his right to bail.

The dude was gave his right to bail ,and now there will be a second bail on the tampering with evidence.In a small town he is a risk to people ,in the metro areas ,he would just merged into the larger population an no one would have remembered his face after a few days .Many murders walk around untill trial ,but in Graham ,it's not so easy.

Richard, the guy had his bail and is now back where he belongs. This is not the first time he has been in jail. He has been in jail for escaping before so he should have considered a risk for fleeing. Not only that but if this crime had been against a family of "high" standing in the community, the events after the crime would have been expedited and he would already have been on trial and in prison, which is too good for him. But because she wasn't rich and had parents that were of the upper society of Graham, it was placed on the back burner. I am not saying that he does not deserve a speedy and fair trial. I am asking where the speedy part of that is coming into play. My family needs this trial to begin and end and justice be served that my daughter and her babies can try to put this behind them and never have to hear his name again.

Please do a little bit of reading into this case before you post your "opinions" of civil rights! It has NOTHING to do with YOUR CAUSE! Get your ass OUT.. if you don't like the U.S.A.!!! GITT!!!

Your family's needs is not the purpose of the criminal justice system, the civil court system is where you would attempt private and personal redress.

Exactly, get justice now for your own personal reasons, just in case you die and you find out that there really is no such thing as an afterlife and it would then be too late.

Remember who was the D/A when this happened.And some of what you say maybe true,but justice at times is misguided,or doesn't work as fast as we think it should ,the system is SLOW and it's going to get slower due to money crunch's.
