Roger Rosen, the attorney representing Schaffer, was unsure whether the amount set by Magistrate Judge Stephen Hillman could be raised to free his client from a federal detention facility where he has been since his July 13 arrest. If Schaffer does make bond, he would have to go to a treatment facility for his cocaine habit, Hillman said.
