NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- One of the four former Vanderbilt players accused of raping an unconscious student in a dormitory will have to come up with more money if he wants to leave jail.
Nineteen-year-old Cory Batey, of Nashville, was arrested Aug. 9 and bail was set at $350,000.
Bail bond companies usually require inmates to pay them 10 percent. At a bond source hearing on Friday, Batey's attorney told the judge that two bond companies were splitting the bond and were offering Batey a discount. That meant he would have to come up with only $20,000.
District Attorney's Office spokeswoman Susan Niland said prosecutors opposed the change.
The judge ruled that Batey would have to provide $25,000. The judge also disallowed one of the bond companies.
Batey was not immediately released.
