Judge sets stiff bail for teens accused of videotaped beating

Most of the girls tried to shield their face with their hands from news cameras. Some hid behind their long hair. The eight teenagers accused of the videotaped beating of Victoria Lindsay, 16, made their first court appearance Friday via videocamera from the Polk County Jail. Judge Angela Cowden set bail on them at double the amounts normally set for the charges they face. Cowden said bail on the kidnapping charges at $30,000 for each defendant. Six received $1,000 bail on battery charges, and two received $5,000 bail on that charge. Three defendants received $2,000 bail on witness tampering charges. The Polk County Sheriff's Office has said the girls were upset with Lindsey over comments she made on the Internet. Lindsay's parents said they were withdrawing her for the rest of the year and that she would be homeschooled.
