ROHDE’S BAIL BID TURNED DOWN
JASON Rohde will spend Christmas in Pollsmoor Prison after his fresh bid for bail was turned down in the Western Cape High Court yesterday.
Rohde’s daughter Kathryn was supposed to have testified in her father’s sentencing proceedings, but only made it as far as the witness box before changing her mind.
This was after Rohde’s defence advocate Graham van der Spuy launched the bail bid in an attempt to get his client home for the time being, even with a monitoring bracelet if necessary. On Wednesday, a social worker testifying in aggravation of sentence told the court that Rohde’s three daughters were struggling to come to terms with their mother’s death and did not want to lose him too once he is sentenced for her murder.
Rohde will remain in Pollsmoor Prison until his sentencing proceedings resume on February 18, 2019. — News24.
