BOND REDUCED (SLIGHTLY) FOR ACCUSED RAPIST

(Hamilton, OH)--A Connersville man who is accused of raping women both in his own hometown and in Oxford appeared in court Thursday to have his bond reduced.  And, the bond for 58-year-old Lloyd Ailes was reduced, but not enough to really matter.  DNA evidence recently tied Ailes to the two rapes that occurred back in 2006.  He had argued for a bond reduction due to the fact that he has cancer.  His bond was reduced from $550,000 to $500,000.  Ailes will go on trial in late May.
