CALIFORNIA MURDER SUSPECT RAISES $35M BAIL

    Recently, a California woman was accused for murdering the father of her two children. She is now expected to be released Thursday after meeting the $35 million bail that was posted for her.

    Fox News reports that Tiffany Li pleaded not guilty to murder and directing her boyfriend and another man to kill Keith Green and dispose of his body. Prosecutors say she feared losing custody of her children.

     Li was arrested last May in Hillsborough, a wealthy suburb 20 miles south of San Francisco. It is reported that she was arrested at her mansion, in which she owned several expensive and exotic cars.

    Her family put up $4 million in cash and -- with the help of friends -- about $70 million in properties, Fox 2 reported, noting that the law requires the equity of the homes to be twice the bail. “I was surprised at the number of people that came forward,” her attorney said. “She is well-liked in the community and is a straight shooter. I think people believe she is not guilty.”

    Fox News reports, California requires twice the bail amount if property is used instead of cash. She must remain on house arrest and submit to round-the-clock electronic monitoring until her September trial if she's released Thursday. “Somebody told me it’s one of the largest bails to be posted in the United States,” District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told The Mercury News. “I have to imagine it’s one of the larger ones. Certainly for San Mateo County it’s without precedent.”

    This certainly may not seem fair to the family of Keith Green, but if someone is able to post bail, then they are allowed to go on house arrest if the prosecutor does not think they will flee, not to mention she will have 24/7 watch over her. If Li is really guilty, then her justice will be served.
