A Tahlequah man captured as he was fleeing the country last year has been released on bond in Cherokee County.
Roxie Wagers, charged with 9 counts of lewd molestation, fled to Florida in November, 2012. He was about to flee to Columbia when he was arrested by U.S. Marshals.
Wagers was returned to Oklahoma last month.
At a court hearing Wednesday in Cherokee County court, a judge set a $100,000 bond for Roxie Wagers. Wagers posted bond and was released from jail pending a February 13th hearing.
He had been in jail without a bond since his return to Oklahoma in January after prosecutors said Wagers was a flight risk.
Court records show Wagers filed a motion asking for a reasonable bond amount. Along with setting a bond, the judge also ordered Wagers to be placed under house arrest, surrender his passport and wear an ankle monitor.
