Shirley Weeks, 52, filed a motion on her own behalf asking Judge Gil Self for a bond reduction.

Weeks has been in jail since her arrest on theft of property charges, and asked the judge to reduce her bond from the current $10,000.  Judge Self denied the request.

According to court records, Weeks pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges in September, and was sentenced to six months in prison.

A trial date on her theft charge is tentatively set for later this month.
