Dallas man who shot boy in face has $500k bond

Posted: Updated:

The Dallas man accused of shooting an 8-year-old boy in the face had his bond reduced to $500,000 on Monday.

Last week a judge heard from prosecutors who said accused shooter Brian Cloninger and his wife were less than forthcoming about their ability to raise money.

A judge on Monday ordered Cloninger's bond reduced from $1 million cash to $500,000 cash or a $2.5 million surety bond to be released from jail.

Restrictions on the bond include wearing an ankle monitor, surrendering of Cloninger's passport and the monitoring of his alcohol intake.

"I can't say that I'm disappointed because we got all the conditions we could possibly think of to ensure the safety of the public and our victim and to ensure that he is present for trial," said prosecutor Tammy Kemp.

Earlier this month, the judge had lowered Cloninger's multi-million dollar bond to $200,000 cash.

In court, prosecutors played recordings of jailhouse calls that they said prove Cloninger's relatives were able to pay the higher amount.

The 46-year-old was arrested in September and charged with shooting 8-year-old DJ Maiden in the face at his apartment complex on Royal Lane.

The boy is recovering, but his family said he lives in fear.
