Federal Judge Lowers Fen Phen lawyers Bail by $93.25 million
U.S. District Judge Danny Reeves, has lowered the bail for Shirley Cunningham from $45 million to $1.25 million. Bail for William Gallion has been lowered from $52 million to $2.5 million.
A number of restrictions have been placed on the two attorneys regarding international phone calls, travel, and business activities. Strangely Judge Reeves prohibited William Gallion from having any contact with his long time significant other, Melissa Green. When this restriction was announced Green left the courtroom in tears.
Both Gallion and Cunningham have been held in the Boone County Detention Center since August of 2007.
Both Gallion and Cunningham, whose first jury trial ended in a mistrial when the jury split 10-2 for acquittal, are scheduled to be retried on Oct. l4, but that date is now likely to be continued
