Re the March 7 story Pompano Beach charter school principal arrested on rape charges: It’s incredible that Peter Nicholson was released on $5,000 bond. Six months ago, I was arrested for pushing my girlfriend during a verbal altercation where no injuries occurred. Despite not having had any prior arrests, my bond was set at $6,500.
Isn’t there something wrong with this disparity? Eventually the charges against me were dropped, yet it still cost me $500 for the bond posting.
