A Fulton judge refused to set bond on Monday for Christopher Cain, one of four men accused of beating a gay Atlanta man in an attack that gained national attention thanks to a video the accused made of it. A Fulton County prosecutor called the Feb. 4 attack on Brandon White (top photo) a hate crime during the 15-minute hearing, according to the GA Voice. Georgia has no hate crime law, though the U.S. Attorney and FBI are investigating the case to see if it falls under a federal hate crime statute. White appeared in court for the hearing. “I’m glad. I was afraid for my life,” he told WSB after the proceeding. Cain (second photo) and three others -- Javaris Bradford, Dorian Moragne and Dareal Demare Williams -- are charged in the attack. Bradford was indicted in February but remains at large. Moragne was granted $40,000 bond in early March but remains jailed until a probation revocation hearing. Williams surrendered to police in Pennsylvania after fleeing and was returned to Atlanta on March 12. He remains in the Fulton County Jail.
