A 51-year-old Boulder woman accused of trying to bribe a juror during her April trial and then attempting to flee the country was denied a lower bond this morning, despite her pleas that she has significant emotional and physical health issues that she needs to treat.
Darine Chely is being held at the Boulder County Jail on a combined $625,000 bond for three separate cases, including one in which she's accused of bribing a juror and another stemming from a February arrest in which she's suspected of theft and witness-tampering charges.
Her attorney, Scott McComas, told a Boulder County District Court judge that Chely has enough equity in her house to meet a lower bond, which she needs to deal with some “pretty serious” emotional health and physical issues.
