The hearing for a judge to consider a reduced bond is scheduled for June 15.

According to court documents, the court-appointed four attorneys to Bradley's defense because he is considered indigent. However, the judge ruled that if he made bond, he would no longer be considered indigent and would have to seek his counsel within seven days or file an Affidavit of Hardship.
