According to the motion, Ryan Duke's attorneys think that he poses no risk of running away, failing to appear in court, or committing a felony while he waits for trial.  

The motion went on to say Ryan Duke does not have the financial means to make a significant bond, so the attorneys ask for the bond to be set at $10,000.

The motion also states that Duke and his attorneys did not file a motion before January 4, 2019 because he was fearful of any retaliation from his co-defendant, Bo Dukes,
