Judge Lowers Bail For Former Mayor Silva


A judge has reduced bail for former Stockton mayor Anthony Silva.

The San Joaquin County judge lowered Silva's bail from $1 million $350,000.

Silva has been in jail since March 5. He was arrested upon returning from vacation in Columbia after he was indicted on six charges, including felony counts of embezzlement and money laundering.

He's pleaded not guilty. The charges stem from his operation of a kids club.
