The bond was lowered for a former HPD officer accused of kidnapping and raping an illegal immigrant. A judge lowered Abraham Joseph's bond yesterday from half a million dollars to $150,000. The judge also ordered Joseph to stay away from the Indian consulate, the bus station and Hobby and Bush Intercontinental airports.

A woman says Joseph kidnapped her outside the bar where she works then took her to a park in his patrol car and raped her.
