A motion to reduce bond was denied in Christian Circuit Court Wednesday morning for one of the former Crofton firefighters convicted of arson.
Former assistant chief Glen McGee was found guilty of second-degree arson, official misconduct and third-degree burglary following a two-day trial in August and he has remained in the Christian County Jail awaiting sentencing.
Former chief Jeremy Marlar was convicted at the same trial and is out on a $25,000 cash bond until final sentencing on October 31st.
Michael Thompson represents McGee and asked Judge John Atkins to reduce his bond from $25,000 to an amount the family could pay.
Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Maggie Gigandet opposed the reduction, noting he has another unrelated pending felony case, and Judge Atkins denied the motion, keeping it consistent with Marlar’s.
The jury sentenced McGee and Marlar to 10 years in prison for their roles in burning down a building in Crofton on eclipse weekend last year.
Dylan Hodge is on probation and is required to make restitution as part of a plea deal he entered in August and Dakota Ogelsby is currently out on bond awaiting trial after his case was severed from the others due to a medical issue with his attorney.
