Daytona Beach, FL – It took Senior Judge R. Michael Hutcheson just three days to come back with a decision to revoke 61-year-old Mark Fugler’s bond. The judge signed the order this morning and Fugler is back in the Volusia County Jail.
State Attorney R. J. Larizza said in a press release regarding the Court’s decision: “Our hearts are with the Victim and her family this morning in celebrating the reversal of Mark Fugler’s supersedeas bond. Justice is now a reality. I’m proud of the tenacious and substantive work put forward by our attorneys in this case. We hope this brings a measure of peace to the family.”
Sheriff Mike Chitwood commented on Facebook, publicly thanking Judge Hutcheson for reconsidering his decision and taking a fair look at the facts of this case. Also, “We all owe a huge thank you to Assistant State Attorney Ashley Terwilliger, who made the clear and convincing argument in court last week that led to this ruling.”
