TONIGHT AT 11 - WMBF Investigates Bond Jumpers

TONIGHT AT 11PM – Every day in South Carolina, men and women are arrested, charged, sent to jail, and then released back onto our streets.

"Certainly, I would say it is a public safety issue," says Sheriff Phillip Thompson with the Horry County Sheriff's Office.

These 'bond jumpers' are sometimes released with no monitoring devices, leaving authorities with no idea where they are.

"I fully expect about a third of the people not to show back up after they make bond," says Horry County Solicitor, Jimmy Richardson.

Tonight at 11 p.m., WMBF News investigates a growing problem in our community, and a danger to you and your family.
