Bail not reduced for accused Anchorage officer

Posted: Sunday, August 16, 2009

ANCHORAGE - A judge has refused to lower a $100,000 cash bail for an Anchorage police officer accused of sexually assaulting women while on duty.

The Anchorage Daily News reported defense attorney David Weber had asked Superior Court Judge Philip Volland to reduce bail because Rollins was not a flight risk.

Two of the victims' mothers read statements about the impact of the alleged crimes at Friday's bail review.

The judge also did not allow Rollin's wife, an Anchorage police officer, to be her husband's "third-party custodian" if he were released on bail.

Rollins, 41, was indicted last month on multiple charges of sexual assault and other offenses. He pleaded not guilty to 14 felonies and six misdemeanors. Authorities allege he assaulted six women over a span of three years.
