Are you aware that in most child molestation cases involving just one victim, bails are set much higher? I don't think $250k in this case is reasonable at all. Due to all the victims continuing to come forward, including one of his own grandsons, Sandusky is clearly established as a danger to the community as well as his own household and should be kept in jail until his trial.
Let's see, he had to pay none of the $100,000 bail for the first 8 kids and 40 counts, which is completely outrageous.
Now he only has to cough up $250,000 for the next two victims, for who knows how many counts which are included with this arrest.
That's only $25,000 per victim (on average). Sounds not so steep to me. I would even say it's ridiculously "reasonable"...so much so that it's unreasonable.
Thanks for the tip, BunnySlippers, on the USA Today article. It wasn't difficult to find.
According to that article, a HS baseball coach in Philadelphia had a $2 million bail. He was charged with sexually assaulting one 13-year-old boy. I guess he just wasn't famous enough or had enough high-profile connections to lower his bail amount to something more "reasonable".
