CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Kanawha County judge has reinstated a $200,000 bond for a lawyer in the state Attorney General's Office who fired shots at police during a standoff.
Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey on Monday agreed with a county prosecutor's motion to set Mark Bramble's bond back to the original amount after his arrest.
On Thursday a magistrate had lowered the bond to $25,000.
Assistant prosecutor Fred Giggenbach said Monday his motion took into account that 48 shots were fired from the home, multiple weapons were used and children were present in Charleston's South Hills neighborhood during the Aug. 12 standoff.
Bramble remained in the South Central Regional Jail on Monday on wanton endangerment and attempted murder charges.
Bramble's resignation from his job in the office's employment programs division is effective this week.
