No way. No freaking way.

Imagine this scenario -- you step before a judge facing serious charges, and that judge cuts your bail requirement by 80 percent. Oh, and that judge also volunteers for an organization you founded.

Not possible, you say? No judge would allow himself or herself to face that kind of scrutiny. Deadspin tells a different story.
When Jerry Sandusky was initially arraigned, as previously reported by Sara Ganim, prosecutors requested $500,000.00 bail and that Sandusky be required to wear a leg monitor. District Judge Leslie Dutchcot, however, ordered that Sandusky be freed on $100,000.00 unsecured bail. She ordered that Sandusky be freed and pay nothing unless he failed to show up for a court hearing.
Ugh.
