JOPLIN, MO.--- A judge has denied bail to the man who confessed to the Joplin Mosque fire. Jedediah Stout, 29, is being held in solitary confinement. According to Judge James England, there was enough evidence at the hearing to establish Stout caused the fire at the Joplin Mosque.
Stout's attorney argued his client has a history of mental health issues, which he didn't recognize and didn't consistently take his medication. The judge ruled Stout as a flight risk and a danger to the community and needed to be held without bail. Stout has been arrested and charged with trying to burn down Joplin's Planned Parenthood on two different occasions.
