Arizona court vacates $75 million cash-only bond
Headline Legal News | 2011/07/11 07:51
An Arizona appeals court has vacated what was perhaps one of the highest bail amounts on record in U.S. history that had been set for a father accused of sexually abusing his children.

The brief order issued last week sends the case back to Yavapai County Superior Court Judge Tina Ainley to reset the $75 million cash-only bond for the longtime Sedona resident. She has scheduled a Monday status conference.

The defendant's attorney, Bruce Griffen, sought relief from the appellate court after he tried unsuccessfully to have the case assigned to another trial court judge.

Griffen accused Ainley of abusing her discretion, and exhibiting bias and prejudice.

Prosecutors say those accusations were not proven. They contend the defendant has significant family ties in Brazil and is a flight risk.

The appellate court said Ainley cannot set a bail amount greater than what is necessary to ensure the defendant appears at trial, and can set other release conditions. The court is expected to elaborate on its decision but had not done so as of Friday.
