Charlie Adelson Denied Bail In Dan Markel's Murder, Remains In Solitary Confinement

Following up on my previous posts (links below):  Tallahassee Democrat, Dan Markel Murder: Held in Solitary Confinement Since April, Charlie Adelson Denied Bond:

Charlie Adelson 3Accused murderer Charlie Adelson will remain in jail until his trial on charges he orchestrated and paid for the plot to kill his former brother-in-law, Dan Markel.

Attorneys for Adelson, once a wealthy periodontist who has been in the Leon County jail since his arrest in April, asked Judge Robert Wheeler to afford him bond during a hearing Friday morning.

Prosecutor Georgia Cappleman said not only was Adelson a flight risk, but he also posed a danger to the community and could influence or tamper with witnesses in his pending murder trial – many of whom are members of his family also implicated as suspects in the 2014 murder of the acclaimed Florida State University law professor.
