YOUNGEST SON OF MUSICAL LEGEND PETER TOSH HELD IN JAIL ON $200,000 BOND

-- In a bond reduction hearing on Monday, October 7th, Bergen County Judge, John A.

Tosh is charged with possession of '25 pounds or more of marijuana with intent to deliver'. The previously set $200,000 bond was left unchanged, although Judge Conte has taken under advisement the defense's suggestion of the "Family Bond" as an alternative to the monetary bond.

Tosh pleads 'not guilty' of the alleged crime, and the defense contends that being too poor to make bond is no reason to be kept in jail, and that monetary bonds are no guarantee that a defendant will appear for trial. A much better measure of the defendant's flight risk is the character of the defendant, his role in the world community and his family ties.
