BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WALA) - Jail records show a woman linked to an alleged sex abuse ring in Baldwin County has posted bond and been released.
Wendy Holland is one of the more controversial members of the alleged child sex ring that investigators say involved children, family, and friends of missing mother Brittney Wood.
Judge Jody Bishop recently reduced Holland's bond from $200,000 to $25,000.
The judge decided to lower her bond for two reasons: the prosecution was not ready for Holland's trial in August and the other defendants in this case were granted much lower bonds. Baldwin County District Attorney Hallie Dixon filed a motion asking for the bond to be re-instated , but it was denied.
Dixon says that Holland is a danger and had reached out to a victim on numerous occasions and threatened one of their guardians.
Holland is Wood's aunt and the wife of Donald Holland, who was last seen with the missing person.
Officials say Donald Holland committed suicide June 1, 2012, the same day they were to talk to him about a sex crimes investigation.
Five other members of Wood's family are also facing charges in this investigation.
According to Holland's bond agreement, she must wear an ankle monitoring device and have no contact with children under 18 or the victims.
She had been incarcerated since November 29, 2012.
