Candler Granted Bond, But Must Remain In Jail

Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — An immigration judge has granted a $20,000 bond for former North Carolina State University diving coach John Candler.

The INS detained the England native last week, just one day after he resigned from his job because a woman notified the school of his 1966 child molestation conviction. He has been in the Johnston County jail since.

Candler has been appealing a deportation order since 1998. He will have to stay in jail while the government decides if it will appeal the bond ruling.
