Murder sus­pect raises un­prece­dented $35M bail via friends

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

RED­WOOD CITY | A Cal­i­for­nia woman ac­cused of killing the father of her two chil­dren was pro­cessed for re­lease from jail Thurs­day af­ter post­ing an un­prece­dented $35 mil­lion bail raised by friends, fam­ily and business as­so­ciates with ties

to China.

Tif­fany Li, 31, is backed by a group that raised $4 mil­lion cash and pledged $62 mil­lion in San Fran­cisco Bay Area prop­erty. Cal­i­for­nia courts re­quire twice the bail amount if prop­erty is used in­stead of cash. She must re­main on round-the-clock elec­tronic mon­i­tor­ing.

Ms. Li’s at­tor­ney, Ge­off Carr, said Ms. Li and her mother were born in China, where the mother was fi­nan­cially suc­cess­ful in the con­struc­tion in­dus­try. Mr. Carr says Ms. Li and her mother are nat­u­ral­ized U.S. cit­i­zens.
