Bail Raised to $250 Thousand For North Pond Hermit

This past Saturday, a “total stranger” showed up at the Kennebec County Jail with $5000 and tried to bail out Christopher Knight, the North Pond Hermit.

Maine State Police Trooper Diane Perkins-Vance said, “This guy was very elusive and made Mr. Knight nervous.  A total stranger shows up and says, ‘I want to get you out of jail for $5,000,’ and there’s no plan and it was not disclosed. It was very odd.”

Then, there was the long distance marriage proposal. “Someone called the jail from somewhere across the country, trying to propose marriage to him,” she said.

So it was decided by prosecutors for the safety of Christopher Knight and to ensure that he showed up for court, that bail would be raised from $5000 to $250,000.

My job is to ensure he does appear in court,” Maine State Police Trooper Diane Perkins-Vance said, “but there’s a lot of people out there trying to exploit him.”

Knight is now in the general jail population and according to Perkins – Vane is “doing well”.  She said that Knight is smiling, pleasant and a very humble man.
