Bond revoked in Hephzibah murder case

The bond set last summer for a Hephzibah man facing a charge of murder in the death of his girlfriend was revoked Thursday.

Todd Goff, 24, has been in jail since his July 7 arrest in the strangulation of 22-year-old Tiffany N. Salter.

A senior judge granted Goff bond of $50,000 in July, but he had been unable to post bond because the sheriff required it in cash.

Assistant District At­tor­ney Grant Usry filed the motion asking Judge Michael N. Annis to revoke the bond. On Thursday in Richmond Coun­ty Superior Court, Usry said Goff has further proven himself to be a danger to the community, receiving several disciplinary reports since he has been in jail.

Defense attorney Pete Theo­docion countered that the disciplinary reports concerned suicide comments and minor, nonviolent infractions at the jail.

Theodocion said the prosecution sought to have Goff’s bond revoked after his family raised the cash to post it. Though Goff was arrested eight months ago, Theo­do­cion hasn’t received any discovery in the case because investigators haven’t sent the prosecutor their case file on Salter’s homicide, Theo­docion said.

Annis said he revoked the bond because of the jail disciplinary actions and because a mental health evaluation has not been completed yet.

What this guy needs

to spend some money on is a much better haircut before he faces a jury, bail or no bail. Or maybe just a higher pressure showerhead as in the old Seinfeld episode.

No bail!

I don't know why this person was allowed any bond at all in the first place. if in fact he strangled his girlfriend to death, then he's a very dangerous person and should not be allowed out of jail.
