Remember our story Alleged Animal Abused Jordan Watkins IN JAIL! ??
Mr. Watkins’ total bond was set in the amount of $350,000 ($100,000 in 2015-CF-000652 and $250,000 in 2015-CF-000900) back in September after Mr. Watkins was charged with four new charges (2 Counts of Burglary, 2 Counts of Theft -2015-CF-000900). In 2015-CF-000652 he was charged with 3 Counts (Aggravated Cruelty to Animals, Cruelty To Animals, Criminal Damage to Domestic Animal).
On 11/23/2015 Mr. Watkins’ Public Defender filed a Motion of Bond Reduction. On 12/02/2015 the Motion was heard and granted and Honorable Judge Schmidt set his bond at $200,000 for both cases (lowering the bond $150,000). On 12/07/2015 the full $20,000 CASH (10% of $200,000) was posted and Mr Watkins was released from the Sangamon County Jail again.
If you remember Mr. Watkins was brought into the spotlight because his first case accuses him of brutally beating a dog and leaving it in the middle of nowhere.
Well Max is doing much better according to its owners.
Laken Adams filled a Civil No Stalking Order Against Mr. Watkins (2015-OP-001209). Also Madison Barker filled a Civil No Stalking Order Against Mr. Watkins (2015-OP-001230). Both cases were dismissed because neither one of them showed up for a scheduled hearing on 11/12/2015.
Mr. Watkins is now out free on bond and has a Jury Trial Status Hearing on Jan 11, 2016 at 1:30 PM in Courtroom 5D.
