District court judge Cathleen Kelly Rebar at the district court in Collegeville, said that she accepted Moody’s waiver for his preliminary hearing, a hearing where a judge can hear evidence and determine how to proceed.
Rebar also agreed to lower his bail. “I’ve reduced your bail to the $99,000 cash as agreed upon by the commonwealth and your attorney,” she said to Moody.
Moody, who appeared in court in a maroon prison jumpsuit, glasses and sneakers, was quiet.
