A Houston man who was arrested July 20th on charges of robbing two Wells Fargo banks in College Station gets his bond lowered.
As of Monday afternoon, 21 year old Waseem Khalil remains in jail.
A Brazos County district judge reduced Khalil’s bonds from a total of $125,000 to $75,000 dollars.
According to court documents, Khalil filed a motion requesting to be released on his promise to make future court appearances because he “does not have the financial resources to post bond in the amount currently set and is not a flight risk.”
The district attorney’s office opposed lowering bond.
If Khalil is released, he is required to wear a GPS monitor and obey curfew restrictions.
