In Upson Superior Court Friday, Judge Tommy Hankinson granted bond to Robert Ryan Riggins on a child molestation charge. The bond is $125,000 and Riggins will spend nights and weekends in jail. Other stipulations include paying a weekly jail fee of $100, adhere to a child protective order and have weekly drug and alcohol testing.
Assistant District Attorney Alana Gernade opposed the bond because Riggins has a new charge of vehicular homicide relating to the death of a a female motorcycle rider May 22nd. Prosecutor Gernade said the child molestation case will be presented to the August Upson County Grand Jury but evidence in the vehicular homicide case is not ready.
