$5.45M Bail Makes Cents – 22/52 Ways to Stop Pedophiles
It’s so frustrating when accused pedophiles are released with a low bail. It doesn’t make sense.
A-slap-on-the-wrist bail tells the public that the crime is not serious, and the accused is trusted to follow ordered restrictions. If accused pedophiles followed common community restrictions, it’s unlikely they would have been arrested for CSA.
The accusations against Stephen Norman Conrad Jr. 31, were taken seriously by a Tallassee judge in Elmore County, Alabama. Conrad’s bail was set at $5.45 million. This high bail was not set because Conrad is a rich man who can pay for release. It’s 5M+ because he’s a monster who repeatedly groomed and raped at least 8 kids, under the age of 12, over a period of 11 years. The youngest child reportedly was only 3 months old. Investigators are still interviewing other possible victims.
Doing the math of bail on at least 109 counts of CSA, and Conrad’s confessions, equals big bail dollars.
Conrad is not going down alone. His wife and two friends were also arrested for witnessing and not reporting sexual abuse of a child. Bail for them has been denied, so far.
How does such a monster get access to kids? This charmer dated or befriended their mothers. Some of the 8 kids may have been his own. These moms were too trusting, too ignorant, or too wrapped up in their own dramas and desires that they failed to protect their innocent babes.
This guy is only 31 years old. He had a long run of raping kids. It’s painful to imagine how many more kids he might have messed up with the compliancy of his family and friends. He’ll probably spend the rest of his life in prison.
Thanks to a justice system that plans to hold him in place with reasonable bail and due process, another pedophile has been stopped.
