Man Charged With Arson Has Bond Set at $1 Million | VideoJoel Porter | 8/15/2012
His attorney had requested a $1,000 bond with ten percent due at release. His defender said Thomas doesn`t have any money or family in North Dakota and he has no mental issues.
However, prosecutors countered that Thomas is a threat to society and has failed to appear at past court dates.
"And given that set of circumstances, we strongly believe if given a chance to bond out, we may never see him again," said Kidder County State`s Attorney Eric Hetland.
The next step for Thomas will be his preliminary hearing, but that date has not been set yet.
