“Court records show Bycroft has a pending rape charge from 2016”

Pending for five years?!? Wtf?!?

[–]noaliciaigotkeyes 62 points63 points  (11 children)

You would have to think legally that could be an issue. Right to a fair and speedy trial right?

[–]watchpigsfly 40 points41 points  (0 children)

You can waive that right when you ask for continuances.

[–]patb2015 38 points39 points  (8 children)

Defense attorneys play for time. Evidence is lost. Witnesses die. The complainant can leave the jurisdiction.

[–]vc6vWHzrHvb2PY2LyP6b 8 points9 points  (3 children)

The complainant can leave the jurisdiction.

Wait, if I'm raped and I'm moving in a few months, I would have no legal recourse?

[–]tenmilez 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I think you have to be available for the trial. So if you’re planning a safari in Africa that’s a little different than if you move out of state and can commute back when needed.

[–]patb2015 5 points6 points  (1 child)

As time passes complainants may want to move on . If they move to California and have kids they may not want to fly back for a two week trial

[–]Furt_III 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It's also used to keep less drastic trials from clogging up the system if things start piling up.

[–]reflUX_cAtalyst 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The complainant can leave the jurisdiction.

The complainant is the jurisdiction in criminal cases.

[–]patb2015 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Um you appear to not understand the jurisdiction

[–]Peg-LegJim 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Came here and asked the SAME QUESTION!

🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

[–]melouofs 33 points34 points  (7 children)

Why does he have such a serious case still pending 5 years later? Something is wrong there.

[–]isuckatpeople 16 points17 points  (2 children)

With this case or the justice system in general?

[–]ubermeisters 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Unequivocally, yes.

[–]patb2015 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Lots of trials are delayed by covid

[–]Furt_III 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I would find that acceptable if it said two years, you know, when COVID hit us. But it's been way longer than that.

[–]patb2015 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The case was slowly grinding it's way through the courts and then slowed down more. There could be problems with the initial case.

[–]crashtestdummy666 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's part of the design, just like Trump's taxes and the IRS.

[–]Elite_Club 147 points148 points  (22 children)

He has bonded out of jail.

Who is the judge that thinks bond is appropriate for a person arrested for a serious sex crime while still being investigated for another serious sex crime?

[–]Ariviaci 36 points37 points  (1 child)

Lawyers can do wonders. I worked with a guy who was molesting his daughter. $20k cash only turned into $10k cash or bond pretty quickly.

Thankfully he couldn’t afford that so he is still locked up until the trial is over (unless guilty of course!)

[–]DarthLysergis 61 points62 points  (4 children)

The guy probably went to church or something so beging white and having been to a church once means you can take a break from prison if it's getting you down.

[–]PMmeJOY 16 points17 points  (0 children)

It’s not a race issue. America does not GAF about sexually assaulted women as evidenced by the backlog of unprocessed rape kits.

[–]incognito_ginger 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Bond is just a way to keep poor people in jail.

[–]SolaVitae 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well you're not really supposed to be imprisoned because you were accused of a crime, and given its been 5 yrs that would have been 5 yrs in jail without being convicted of anything.

[–]Nimushiru -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Money talks. It's ridiculous that you can even partially buy your way out of prison in any sense.

[–]joshuaism 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not prison. Jail. And there needs to be a way to square public safety with the presumption of innocence. Thus you have the pretrial confinement and bond system.

[–]GLORY2GLORZO2ME 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Whoa look at that, Broken Arrow made Reddit news… fuck me

[–]NorskGodLoki 36 points37 points  (6 children)

Why the hell do they let people like this BOND OUT OF JAIL?

He should sit in jail until trial!

[–]patb2015 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The judge decided that he met bail criteria

[–]wonder-maker 72 points73 points  (11 children)

The rape and child porn is pretty horrendous, but they really need to find that missing nuclear weapon

[–]creggieb 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Calling Nicolas Cage....

[–]PPQue6 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Swing and a miss...

[–]creggieb -3 points-2 points  (4 children)

I'm pretty sure it was him and Travolta in that movie.

[–]fattmarrell 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Don't you forget Howie Long. But it was Christian Slater and not Nic Cage

[–]JJ_Jansen44 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And Samantha Mathis 🥵

[–]PPQue6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's the winner!

[–]singbowl1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Classic Texas bounty hunter newly emboldened!

[–]d_o_cycler 10 points11 points  (0 children)

He’s bonded out right now?? How? Smh

[–]TheEccentrickOne 22 points23 points  (7 children)

This is an article about a horrible man from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. It has nothing to do with missing nuclear weapons.

[–]Honor_Bound 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Fun fact: there’s also a Broken Bow Oklahoma. They must not take care of their archery weapons there

[–]Shurigin 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Fun Fact: Broken Bow, Oklahoma is where the first Aliens landed in Star Trek the Klingons no less

[–]UrbanGhost114 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Broken Arrow has nothing to do with missing nuclear weapons anyway, that's "empty quiver".

Broken Arrow is when there is an accident that involves nuc's, or their components, but does not risk war (like the trucks carrying components got into an actual accident).

Nucflash is a possible detonation or serious incident that may lead to war.

[–]nzodd 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Who am I going to trust, some guy who sounds like he probably knows what he's talking about or Christian Slater?

[–]maxbenoit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You say that like Christian Slater doesn’t sound like knows what he’s talking about!

[–]taptapper 1 point2 points  (0 children)

LOL, I only clicked in to find out what a "Broken Arrow Man" is. Thanks

[–]Peg-LegJim 12 points13 points  (3 children)

“This man has a pending rape case from 2016”?!?!?!?

It’s 20 fucking 21 !!!

WTAF?!?!?

[–]AskJayce 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Boy, wait til you hear about the backlog of untested rape kits for states like Texas.

[–]DrClo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And 49 others!

[–]halfanothersdozen -1 points0 points  (7 children)

I dunno if you're gonna have a death penalty I'm not sure of a better time for it

[–]AwkwardeJackson 8 points9 points  (6 children)

Serial murderers are a better time for it.

[–]halfanothersdozen 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Not really out to rank a list of truly horrible things. Serial rapist and child molestation porn is gonna get you near the top of the list though.

[–]SouthFL92 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Should be given no bond Edit: I should of been clear, he should of been given no bond on the rape charge.

[–]ReadThisSack -5 points-4 points  (5 children)

Chemical Castration by law in Florida!! He needs it

[–]mmmmpisghetti 0 points1 point  (4 children)

With dull "chemicals"

Everything is chemistry.

[–]CrunchHardtack 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How many different types of sick bastard can one person be?

[–]BBQed_Water 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Would staking-out-on-an-anthill be extreme?

[–]crasspmpmpm -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

damn this guy gets around.
