Wager out on bond

SALISBURY – Three days after a bond reduction hearing, former Catawba College soccer coach Ralph Wager was released from jail.
Wager posted a $400,000 bond Thursday afternoon about 4:30 p.m. The 69-year-old coach was arrested in July on six counts of felony sex offenses after authorities said he molested at least one boy on Catawba College’s campus.
At a hearing Monday, Wager’s attorney, Darrin Jordan, argued that his client’s $1 million bond wasn’t appropriate.
Superior Court Judge W. David Lee, of Union County, reduced the bond, but required Wager to wear an electronic monitor that restricts him to within 50 yards of his Charlotte home.
