Judge Denies Jensen’s Request to Lower Bond

Mark Jensen’s bond will remain at $1.2 million as he awaits his second trial for the death of his wife. Circuit Court Judge Chad Kerkman on Tuesday rejected a defense motion to lower Jensen’s bond to $300,000. Kerkman said Jensen is a flight risk, and that there is a danger of witnesses being intimidated if Jensen is released on bond. The defense had argued that Jensen was not a flight risk. They said he had been out on bond for several years before his first conviction in 2008 and had made hundreds of mandatory check-ins (and court appearances) during that time. Jensen is facing a second trial for the 1998 death of his wife Julie. His conviction was overturned in 2013 and prosecutors have now chosen to retry the case.
