49 BailTo reasonably assure her appearance to face federal charge of harboring or concealing a person from arrest, defendant’s bail was appropriately set at $500,000; risk of flight was substantial, since defendant, who had allegedly assisted in concealment of fugitive for many years, appeared to be knowledgeable in manner and means used by fugitives to elude capture.
