Attorney General Gary King’s office is opposing Wayne Bent‘s petition to the state Supreme Court for bond while awaiting appeal.
Bent’s previous filings on district and state levels were both denied.
Assistant Attorney General Margaret McLean asks the Supreme Court to uphold the previous courts’ rulings.
She cites no “clear and convincing” evidence that Bent, Strong City leader, won’t flee or pose danger to another person or community. She also says a reversal or order for a new trial is unlikely and argues there are no grounds to revisit granting an appeal bond.
