Conditions of Release
I received more information today on my ex-husband's charges and conditions of release. The documents were sent to me by Fox4 News, incidentally, which did a follow up story last night. They requested the documents, which are public record.
In short, he was ordered to pay a $10,000 bond and abide by the conditions of release, which include the following:
This is an abbreviated list. You can view the entire document here.
These conditions do provide some measure of security for myself and the kids. Ultimately, though, he can choose to violate any of the conditions and the Justice Dept. will not have knowledge of it until after the fact. It's a trust system, basically, with heavy consequences for breaking the conditions.
My concern remains the same. He is already facing heavy consequences in the form of a long prison sentence. When it comes down to the wire, I'm wondering how much of a deterent these conditions will actually be.
