Man arraigned on pill charges

(Continued)

Franco initially agreed. But about a half-hour later, he and Barry returned to the courtroom. Barry said the cost would be a burden to his family and said his client was not able to report to a probation officer once a week, one of the typical requirements of wearing a bracelet.

While Lu said he could skip the reporting requirement, Franco was still unwilling to go along with the deal and then asked if the bail could be restored to the $50,000 that a District Court judge had set last fall following his original arraignment.

The judge agreed.

Franco is due back in court April 23 for a pretrial conference.
