After 5 months in jail, Muslim “doctor” in genital cutting case released on $4.5M bond

Evil.

The lead defendant in a genital mutilation investigation is about to taste freedom again thanks to generous friends: They offered more than $4.5 million in property to secure Dr. Jumana Nagarwala’s bond and her release from federal lockup after five months.

That’s the largest unsecured bond in the history of Detroit’s federal court.

The size of the bond, along with other factors, convinced U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman today to grant bond to Nagarwala, whom the government believes subjected as many as 100 minor girls belonging to a small Muslim sect to genital cutting procedures. Friedman concluded that Nagarwala isn’t a flight risk given all that her friends and family have to lose should she flee.
