Remember those two guys caught with a ton of marijuana about a month ago?

From the article on their capture:

Both remain in custody, each on a 15 million dollar bond.

From this article:

He was arrested and charged with kidnapping, sexual assault and sexual assault with a minor.

I don't know where the previous poster got the figure of $10,000 as this man's bond, but supposing that it is correct, does anyone see a problem with the difference in bonds for the two crimes?

Article comment by: This man has been charged with rape under age 15 And has a bond of only $10,000 Dollars?.

Disgusting that a child molestor is out on such a low bond.
Shows what the value of women and children in AZ is.
