    He didn't receive $10,000.00 he posted (temporarily paid the court) it and he might get it back. Bond is NOT a fine or punishment. It's the money-backed promise that he'll show up for his court date. If he does not show up he forfeits the money (does not get it back).

    Common law robbery isn't appropriate in this case. Privileged working in full effect here. Yeah, yeah, no gun, I know but still.

    It should be safe to assume that if he voluntarily turned himself in that he is not a flight risk.
    Bond is not punishment, it is incentive to show up for court.
