Bail for The Dancing With The Stars alum was set at $75,000; his attorney arguing that being a public figure insures that he won’t be a flight risk. “He’s not going anywhere. He is a law abiding citizen,” attorney Arthur Aidala said in court. The prosecution was asking for a $100,000 bail. “That amount of money is ludicrous and ridiculous,” Aidala said.  “Mr. Taylor is denying these charges, he’s 51 years old, married and has 3 children.”

At a new conference after the hearing, Aidala said “Mr. Taylor is denying and preparing to fight these charges.” He clarified that the charges did not include violence, but he claimed “my client did not have sex with anybody, period. Amen.” He went on to say “He did not have consensual sex with anybody last night.”
