In Harris County alone there have been greater than 169 murders COMMITTED BY VIOLENT OFFENDERS out on bond. Recently 3 police officers were murdered by a criminal out on bond. It is so bad it is being called a ‘Bond Pandemic’.  Criminals incarcerated for capital murder can get out with as low as a $500 bond.  In Harris County, the average bond is $160,000. Typically the defendant has to pay 10% of the amount however there are 6-8 bonding companies willing to bond someone out with just a 2 -5% down payment and financing the rest. That means someone who is given a  $160,000 bond can get out with as little as $3200!

In my daughters case her killer, who killed her while out on probation from ANOTHER VIOLENT CRIME, is asking for bond. His attorney is recommending a  $75,000 bond.  That means it is possible for him to get out for as low as $1500!  


The best way to combat this SENSELESS BONDING OF VIOLENT CRIMINALS is to write the judges that proceed over criminal cases. I have people writing my daughter's Judge. I am acutely aware that I am one of many, many mothers having to face this issue. I understand their tears!!! 


Be active. GET INVOLVED!!! Write the judges. Google their names and how to email them. You will find the district clerk assigned to them and their email addresses. My judge has been responsive to my family's emails. I am grateful to him for that… so far. 

The next bond hearing comes up on April 26, 2022. I am praying the judge continues to be responsive…and responsible!  Because if her killer gets out…HE WILL KILL AGAIN!!! He is also charged with trying to kill another woman, and leaving her for dead, possession of a deadly weapon in jail, and soon he will also be charged with tampering with a corpse… my daughters. He hid her body and it took 13+ very long months to find her. 

I encourage you to search your hearts and DEMAND JUSTICE for my daughter and the children of countless other mothers going thru the same thing.  Please sign my petition to present to the judge to keep her killer and others like him in jail!  
Thank you!  Tricia Todd
