Suspect Indicted Twice For Sex Charges Free on Bond

Kandis Satterwhite Arrested Twice In Seven Months

A Russell County suspect indicted twice by a Grand Jury for sexual offenses involving a child remains free on bond.

Law enforcement officials tell First News these allegations of child sex abuse are being handled like dozens of others similar in nature , by the book.

Kandis Satterwhite first appeared on the radar of the public back in February when Satterwhite was indicted for felony sexual offenses.  Satterwhite was arrested and posted a 90 thousand dollar bond according to the District Attorney’s office.

Since that time, more allegations surfaced and evidence was presented recently to a second grand jury which returned more indictments for sexual offenses involving children less than 12. The charges allegedly involve three separate victims.

Before Satterwhite was arrested a second time, the secret grand jury information was shared on the pages of social media with a public plea for help apprehending Satterwhite sparking a family feud  and public outrage across multiple online forums.

After the suspect surrendered to the Russell County Sheriff’s office this past Thursday, a 75 thousand dollar bond was posted and Satterwhite was free once again.  According to Alabama law only Capital Murder suspects are not entitled to bond but because the accused in these cases allegedly committed a new offense while out on the first bond, the state can move to have it revoked.

Russell County Assistant District Attorney Madison Grantham tells WLTZ the request for bond to be revoked can only be made upon arrest. Prosecutors filed a motion to revoke Satterwhite’s bond Friday morning.

The District Court Judge can agree to revoke bond, deny the motion or schedule a hearing for the matter.
