Hill-Rogers Bond Reduced to $100,000, but with Restraining Order Against Person, against His Wishes

February 8th, 2019 by

Courthouse

hillStephanie Hill Rogers appeared before Circuit Judge Quincy Ross, Friday morning.

A brief plea and arraignment hearing took place, where the defendant pled “not guilty” to 2 counts of solicitation of murder.

A bond reduction hearing then began, in an effort to lower the defendant’s bail from its original $500,000.

The hearing included testimony by her daughter, who told the court that Hill-Rogers had been a lifelong resident of south Arkansas.

When asked about bail, she responded that her husband, former mayor Joe Rogers, would be posting her bond.

It was also stated the Rogers had successfully requested that the no-contact order between the defendant and he be canceled.

Next to testify was MPD detective Kenny Cox, who described the events that led to her arrest. This included comments allegedly made about her husband, his ex-wife and another family member.

His ex-wife was then called to the stand.  Her testimony included information about relationships and financial issues.

The defendant was represented by Patrick Benca, of Little Rock.

Deputy prosecuting attorneys Crews Puryear and Sandra Bradshaw represented the state, supported by private attorney Robert Gibson.

She has been in custody since October 18.  It was stated by her attorney that this is her first court appearance since her October first appearance hearing.

After closing statements, Judge Ross asked about the availability of ankle monitoring, before making a ruling.

The bond was the reduced to $100,000, with the stipulation of a GPS enabled ankle monitor.

Judge Ross also re-instituted the restraining order with her husband, against his wishes.  The defense asked for the court to reconsider, but that ruling remains in place.
