 A judge denied reduced bail for the Lawrenceburg man who allegedly threatened to shoot up schools here and in Shelbyville during a hearing last Tuesday in Anderson Circuit Court.

The attorney for Dylan Jarrell, 21, asked Judge Charles Hickman for two things during the hearing: to reduce the $500,000 cash bond that was placed on Jarrell shortly after his arrest last October, and to allow him to be moved out of the Shelby County Detention Center.

Jarrell’s attorney stopped short of saying the Shelby jail wasn’t safe for his client, but did say his presence there is causing stress for both Jarrell and the detention center.

“I’m sure there are detention center employees there who have kids in the school he allegedly threatened,” the attorney told Hickman.

Hickman said he would leave that decision to Anderson County Jailer Joani Clark. Jarrell has since been moved to the Woodford County Detention Center.

Hickman declined the attorney’s request for lower bail after the attorney pointed out Jarrell’s lack of a criminal record.

Hickman said Jarrell has a federal holder, and denied the request.
