Default Articel: Inmate awaiting drug charges sells Christmas cards to post bond

Inmate awaiting drug charges sells Christmas cards to post bond
Associated Press

A man with plenty of time to spare as he awaited trial on drug charges sold Christmas cards he drew to raise enough extra money to help him post bond and get out of jail. In October, authorities arrested Charlie Cook and his wife, Laurie, and charged them with making methampetamine, drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and manufacturing meth in the presence of children. Laurie Cook's bond was set at $20,000, but she was released on a signature bond because she was five months' pregnant. Cook's bond was set at $30,000; with help from some of his Christmas card money, he was able to post bond Dec. 7. After visiting with prison missionaries, Charlie Cook became inspired to draw winter scenes as Christmas cards. Clarence Yoder, a Mennonite who had visited Cook in jail, liked the cards so much that he took them to his bakery and sold them for $2 each.
