DAVENPORT—Presiding judge Dan B. Johnson denied a motion for an appeal bond by the defense of Brandy J. Hood at a hearing Tuesday, March 8.
Hood was sentenced to 43 months in prison Feb. 22 after a jury found her guilty on four counts of fourth-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault and one count of harassment with the threat to kill stemming from incidents involving mistreatment of Hood's two daughters in Jan. 2020.
Defense attorney Douglas Phelps motioned for a $5,000 bond Tuesday. Prosecuting attorney Nina Fisk said Hood shouldn’t have a right to an appeal bond.
