(KMOV) – A Missouri judge ruled to deny bail posted for a man arrested after attorneys say he is too dangerous to be let back out into the public.
The Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons says Jerry Sutt contacted one of his victims and had threatened their life since he has been in custody.
Sutt was arrested in September after he allegedly tied up a couple near Collinsville and sexually assaulted a woman while armed with a gun.
“This is the type of case that represents a clear and present danger,” said Gibbons. “Not only to the victims in this case and their families, but to the public as well.”
One of Sutt’s family members tried to pay the $50,000 needed to bail him out, which gave Gibbons the option to request a judge revoke Sutt’s bail.
The judge granted Gibbons' request and denied Sutt's bail.
