New Attorney Appointed For Rogers 'Bolt, No New Detention Hearing Set

Posted: March 20, 2014 at 6 a.m.



Jim Bolt, who pleaded guilty in January to federal mail and wire fraud related to his purported alternative cancer treatment clinic, Situs Cancer Research Center, in Rogers, was appointed a new attorney Wednesday but his request for a new detention hearing wasn't addressed.


Detention Hearing

A pretrial hearing in federal court is much like a bail hearing in state court. The court determines whether to detain the defendant without bail. In deciding if bail is appropriate, the court considers if any conditions, such as a particular amount or government monitoring, will ensure the defendant, if released from custody, will show up for court in the future. The judge also will consider if the defendant’s release will compromise the safety of any particular people or the community at large.
