Judge Revokes $1.6 Mil Bail, Releases Sex Offender on OR

Kim Palmer of Kim Palmer A1 Bail Bonds didn't like her odds when she heard that Doug Wilhite, a man she had earlier bailed out of jail on a $100,000 bond, had been charged with seven new sex offenses, and that the police had been tipped off that Wilhite was planning on fleeing. The bail for the new charges alone was $1.6 million. Circuit Judge John Doyle decided that Wilhite could be released, but Palmer did what she thought was best and revoked Wilhite's bond, bringing him back to jail.

Despite Palmer's best judgement in revoking the bail,
Circuit Judge R. Michael Hutcheson at a separate hearing decided that Wilhite wasn't a danger to the community or a flight risk, and released him on his own recognizance.
