Cobb's Bond Set at One Million Dollars Cash

Posted:

Bond is set at one million dollars cash for Craig Cobb after the North Dakota Supreme Court ruled Cobb be eligible for bond..

Cobb has been in jail since November when he was arrested and charged with seven counts of terrorizing.

At the bond hearing today, Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Byers told Judge Cynthia Feland that Cobb skipped bail in Canada on a lesser charge.

Byers says that indicates Cobb may be willing to run rather than to answer to charges against him.

"Were it not for the intervention of the authorities something bad was going to happen and the fear of the people in Leith is that will be the case unless this defendant either is kept incarcerated, which the supreme court has indicated he has to have bail, but there at least has to be a significant penalty to him should he violate the conditions of bail," says Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Byers.

Cobb's attorney Ryan Heintz asked judge Feland to consider $50,000 bond.

Heintz told the court Cobb has lived in North Dakota to close to three years and has a limited criminal history.

"Our main issue here is the Constitutionality of Mr. Cobb being held without bond now that the supreme court has weighed in on that we seek to establish a fair and reasonable bond," says Cobb's attorney Ryan Heintz.

After bond was set at a million dollars cash, Cobb asked Judge Feland, "Where do I pay the million dollars, ma'am?"

Feland told him it would have to be posted with the clerk of courts office.

Cobb's next court appearance is a preliminary hearing set for January 13th.
