Paul House Bail Hearing Update

Earlier today in Maynardville at the Union County Court House, bail was set at $500,000 for Paul House. House has been assigned a public attorney and there will be another hearing on June 27 to entertain arguments from the defense to reduce the bail amount. House will remain at DeBerry Special Needs Facility in Nashville.
Read this article from Saturday's Tennessean about the bail hearing by clicking HERE (excerpt below).
"His mother, Joyce House, surmised that the state would not want the expense of driving and taking care of an inmate who has multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair. She thought there was a chance he'd make bail.

But Criminal Court Judge Shayne Sexton set the bond at $500,000, well out of her reach. House got back on the transport van to the Lois M. DeBerry Special Needs Facility in Nashville.

"He was slumping in his chair," his mother said. "He was tired from the trip. I didn't think the state would want to have him. Evidently, they did. This whole case has been crazy.""

So is $50,000 the amount we need to raise to get Paul out?
There's a decent chance that on June 27, the defense will successfully lower the bail amount. If it remains at $500,000, then yes, we will have to raise $50,000. As soon as we find out the amount of June 27, we'll go forward from there.
