Bond granted to teen accused of rape
Superior Court Judge Albert Pickett had previously denied bond in the Columbia County case, but reconsidered a second petition for bond when Blake Weems’ family and attorney, Travis Saul, presented an alternative plan for Weems’ release.
Assistant District Attorney Amanda Heath said Weems, 17, of the 4100 block of Quinn Drive, performed sex acts on a 12-year-old girl. She opposed bond because Weems stated he knew it was wrong but “he couldn’t help himself.”
Pickett approved bond with several conditions: that Weems remain inside his grandparent’s house in Martinez with an electronic ankle monitor and have no access to a computer.
