A Coarsegold man who is facing 32 charges of grand theft in a bank embezzlement case was released from jail Tuesday without bail after a Madera County Superior Court judge ruled he was not a flight risk.

Donald Eric Eaves, the former Yosemite Bank branch manager, is due back in court on June 14 for a preliminary hearing, said Madera County District Attorney David Linn.

Eaves is accused of stealing from the bank where he worked for 10 years.
