Pennsylvania judge sets bail for accused rioters at $1M each by Haley Victory Smith for Washington Examiner
Several individuals accused of rioting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, after the police shooting of Ricardo Munoz have had their bail set at $1 million.
Of the nine who were given that bail amount, none were able to post it.
Twelve adults have been charged with criminal conspiracy for arson, riot, institutional vandalism, failure to disperse, obstructing highways and other public passages, disorderly conduct, and defiant trespass. Nine of them had their bails set at $1 million. One of the 12 faced an additional charge of illegal possession of a firearm. According to police, at least eight of those charged are not Lancaster residents.
One 16-year-old has been charged with riot, disorderly conduct, possession of instruments of crime, possession of a small amount of marijuana, propulsion of missiles onto a roadway, and institutional vandalism.
The arrests happened early on Monday morning.
An advocacy group called Lancaster Stands Up claimed that two of those charged were working as medics when they were arrested.
