Judge grants bond to car dealer known as 'The Finnisher'


Rik Melartin is accused of sexually assaulting two teenage girls last year. On Friday morning, the former car dealership spokesman faced a judge on the seven new felony charges, including sexual assault of a child, tampering with a witness and tampering with evidence.

Today, the judge granted Melartin $50,000 bond on each charge. That means to get out of jail, he will have to meet a total of $350,000 bond.
