Can someone explain to me how a 46 year old pervert that lives in Polk County can be released from jail after being charged with Felony Child Molestation Charges? And how long is it going to take to take him to trial? It is sad that the little girls are afraid to go to sleep at night for fear that he will get them again!!This person needs to be UNDER THE JAIL for what he has done!!I guess they seperate people that are charged with sexual crimes against children from others that are in the jail!!This idiot was 44 when this happened and these girls are still in fear!! They need to know that this jerk can NEVER get to them again!!
These girls are like granddaughters to me and it is killing me!
Can someone PLEASE ANSWER these questions for me?

polkster.... No I did not attend the bond hearing! He was arrested before this charge on a probation violation so I am wondering if he was on probation and committed this crime why was he not held with NO BOND after committing this heinous crime? He DOES NOT deserve to be walking/or riding around anywhere he needs to sit his sorry behind in the jail.... What Judge in his right mind would allow scum like this out in the public??

There are two elements: probation and the new allegation. If he was arrested while on probation, he would go before the judge on probation violation/revocation. If the judge revokes his probation, he would have to serve the rest of his probation in jail. Seeing how this was two years ago when this first happened, he may have done that. I am not familiar with the case and you didn't provide the defendant's name, so I do not know the specifics.
Then there is the new allegation. Under the U.S. Constitution, everyone charged is entitled to a bond hearing. There are certain guidelines judges must consider in granting bond, the most important being the likelihood to flee and the second is whether they are prone to violence to themselves or the community. The judge can set the bond high if he/she chooses depending on the evidence regarding these issues in the case.
The Constitution also guarantees that everyone is innocent until proven guilty and that the burden of proof lies with the prosecution. In other words, the prosecution must prove they did it rather than the defense prove they didn't. So, the judge does not consider - can not consider - guilt or innocence in a bond hearing. That is to be determined at trial.
I hope this answers your questions about the process.

Yes they should castrate the man. He has hurt these children & left scars on them they will never forget. Better yet...let these children's families punish him out in the middle of town ...like in the old days!! He is a sick man!!

This is so sad, this guy has ruined these innocent little girls lives. How old were the other two girls? No amount of therapy will ever help them to get over this.

Judges are elected officials. Yet 99% of voters DO NOT cast a vote for Superior Court Judge. But I am very surprised he was released from Polk County. I guess they are following with every other county government of having no morals.

Yes I do vote for the superior court judges but it seems to do no good. Just look at the crookedness of the counties around your area Bartow, Fulton, Cobb, Floyd!!! Need I say more?

The Magistrate Judges who set the bonds are appointed Judges. The Superior Court Judges are elected. 99% of the time Superior Court Judges never get to see these people, because of all the deals that are made by lawyers and DA's to get cases off of the books.

If more cases actually went to trail, and these people went before a Superior Court Judge, maybe we wouldn't have so many repeat offenders.

With this being a FELONY case why was it not bound over to Superior Court?
