WENTWORTH, N.C. — Mickey Dale Snow, who in October fled the country to avoid prosecution on sex crimes involving minors, walked out of the Rockingham County jail on Thursday night after his children paid $1 million in cash and put up $20 million to ensure he wouldn’t run away again.

Snow, 75, of 318 Bearside Court in Eden had been held since late November on $25 million bail, but he was released after Russell and Katrina Snow paid a non-refundable, bonding-related fee and guaranteed all but $5 million of the original bail.

Snow faces six counts each of patronizing a mentally disabled prostitute and statutory rape, one of six Rockingham residents who were being held on those charges since the charges first emerged in September.
