White supremacist wants $1M bond reduced to $35K

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- The attorney for a white supremacist jailed for allegedly terrorizing residents of the small North Dakota town of Leith wants a judge to dramatically lower Craig Cobb's $1 million cash bond.

Public defender Ryan Heintz is asking Judge Donald Jorgenson to reduce the amount to $35,000 cash or surety, saying Cobb doesn't intend to leave the state until his case is resolved.

Prosecutor Todd Schwarz says he thinks $35,000 is too low an amount because Cobb can easily meet it and is a risk to flee since he fled prosecution in Canada when he was charged in Vancouver in 2010 with willfully promoting hatred through a blog.

A man who joined Cobb in Leith, Kynan Dutton, wants his bond reduced from $50,000 to $2,000.
