$50,000 bond sounds excessive for this poor girl when a child molester get a $25,000 bond. Their common practice is rack up all of the charges they can in order to snooker her into a plea deal(usually probation) so they can appoint a nazi probation officer to lock her up any chance they can. Now they will show more liniency for a child molester that has no remorse for their actions and will give people like her a living nightmare after all that is what Cobb County justus is all about. They still refuse to arrest Tommy Wallace for murdering his step-mother in 1990 but look at these and other arrests. Itś all about conviction. Whether or not you are innocent and cannot post bail you will rot in the Cobb County jail until you are ready to plea guilty then they will work with you. Whatever you do do not buck them they will send Lt. Ken Davis with his group of rogue deputies and beat you up and when you file a complaint of course he is in charge of eternal affairs and will not discipline himself.
