A 20-year-old Lugoff man held on a $225,000 bond after being charged with attempted murder for repeatedly hitting a man with a baseball bat will remain in jail for now. Wednesday, Circuit Court Judge Deandrea Benjamin denied Ryan Trojan’s request for bond reconsideration, but said he could reapply for a bond adjustment in nine months if the case has not yet gone to trial. “We are not here for a preliminary hearing, we aren’t here to try the facts of this case, much less the things that could be happening subsequently because of the charges we are here on,” Kershaw County Solicitor Brett Perry said after Trojan’s lawyer made the request.
