A man accused of causing the deaths of his two toddlers will likely soon be free on bail.
San Mateo Superior Court Judge Clifford Cretan on Thursday set bail for Charles Schuttloffel, 35, who has been denied bail since his arrest last year in the deaths of his two sons, ages 2 and 3.
Cretan set Schuttloffel’s bail at $120,000 for two charges of involuntary manslaughter and a drug possession charge.
“We’re under the impression that with his family money, he’ll be able to post bail,” Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
As part of an April 8 plea deal, prosecutors dropped the arson charge and Schuttloffel pleaded no contest to two counts of involuntary manslaughter. He will be sentenced July 3, and will likely be out of prison by the middle of 2009.
