A judge has set $25,000 bond for former CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WTKS (REAL RADIO 104.1)/ORLANDO midday host SHANNON BURKE, who has been in jail since violating the terms of his pre-trial bond after his APRIL 30 arrest for the shooting incident that injured his wife and dog.
In addition to the cash bond, BURKE is being ordered to wear a GPS monitoring device and get psychological help, and must stay away from his wife as well as from firearms, alcohol, and drugs.
BURKE, who faces charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and animal cruelty, had been free on $15,000 bond before being put back in jail for sending a friend back to his house with a key to take some of his belongings and his motorcycle, thus violating a protective order requiring him to avoid any contact with his wife CATHY or come within 1,500 feet of his ALTAMONTE SPRINGS home.
