CBS may be the “Tiffany Network” but the Tiffany Li network appears far more flush these days. CBS is reporting that Li was given a $35 million bail for her alleged murder of her husband, Keith Green. That is an amount clearly intended to put release beyond the reach of anyone, but Li’s friends have ponied up the full amount. It just might be the largest bail of its kind.
Li is accused of conspiracy with her boyfriend and another man to kill Green and to get rid of his body. The marriage was not going well and prosecutors believe that Li sought the elimination of Green to keep her children. The wealthy couple had assets but not enough to make that type of scratch for bail. The bail is doubled is real estate is used in lieu of cash. The community raised $4 million in cash and another in pledged $61 million property.
Notably, prosecutors pushed for no bail and said Li was a flight risk. The court insisted on bail and rejected $100 million as a figure from the prosecutors.
She will be under house arrest.
By the way, my primary thought in reading this story is that I really need a new and upgraded group of friends.
