Criminal Court Judge W. Mark Ward has set a $40,000 bond for Mark Giannini, who was in court to determine whether he violated his probation, mandated from a 2017 drug conviction, through his recent arrest for aggravated statutory rape involving a teenager. The Commercial Appeal reports that Giannini, the former Memphis businessman who was acquitted last year of raping a woman in 2014, could be out on bail immediately, though he will have to wear an ankle monitor. Giannini was arrested and charged in April for his sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl, and still has two rape cases pending from 2002 and 2013.
