Ronald Powell posted $15,000 bond.

A judge agreed to lower it Wednesday.

It’s a decision that frustrates Douglas County’s top prosecutor.

Don Kleine doesn’t think the judge should’ve let him out at all.

“We don’t think he should be out on bond,” Don Kleine said.

Don Kleine can’t believe the judge gave the former OPS employee a chance to get out of jail.

“There’s a reason that the law provides no bond in certain kinds of cases, this is one of those cases. It’s a most serious charge,” Kleine said.

The first court to hear the case gave Powell no bond. His defense attorney asked for it to be lowered Wednesday and said Powell’s responsible for taking care of his family.

Judge Peter Batallion agreed and lowered it to 10% of $150,000 and Powell posted it Thursday.

“From our perspective, knowing the facts of this case it was a shock to me that this happened. I disagree with the court’s logic here and it’s pretty troubling to be and we respectfully disagree,” Kleine said.

Powell faces two charges of sexual assault of a child a former student said that started when she went to North High in 2015. She went to police in 2019.

By then, Powell had already coached at Gross Catholic and volunteered at Bryan High.

OPS fired him for his behavior around students in 2016.

Kleine worries he’s a flight risk.

“The judge can consider a risk to public safety. The other thing is the possibility that this person may flee because of the serious amount of time they’re facing,” Kleine said.

Powell has to wear a GPS monitor, stay in Douglas County and cannot contact anyone under 19 with the exception of his own children.

Kleine thinks the best place for him is in jail, especially because detectives think there may be more victims.

“There’s still an ongoing investigation going on here, there’s two counts filed against him, but there’s still work going on,” Kleine said.

If Powell is convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years on each count and he could be sentenced to life. He’s expected back in court March 30.
