Dominique Swope has not been released on bond and is still in the custody of the Bulloch County Sheriff’s office.

WSAV is reporting that a Bulloch County judge granted Swope $25,000 bond today, however Chief Deputy Jared Akins of Bulloch County Sheriff’s Department said that Swope is still with them.

“He’s showing as still in the facility,” Akins said.

Akins said that the Bulloch County court may have set a bond amount for Swope today, but they have not received that information from the court yet so he is still being held.

Bulloch County’s Clerk of Court could not be reached for comment when the reporter went to her office before they closed for the day.
