Furious alleged rape victim of NJ attorney Matthew Nilo says he's a 'flight ... trends now
An alleged rape victim of New Jersey attorney Matthew Nilo says it's 'bulls**t' that he'll be released from jail.
This morning a bail hearing was held for Nilo, who has pleaded not guilty to raping four women as a college student in 2007 and 2008, where his lawyer told a judge his client's family has raised $500,000 cash of his $5million bail.
One of his alleged victims, who wore a black hoodie and had her blond hair in a pony tail, sat in the second row fidgeting and audibly gasped.
'This is bulls**t!' she told DailyMail.com. 'He literally hid from cops for 16 years. How is he not a flight risk?
'Anybody who can come up with $500,000 so easily is a flight risk. And this is such a heinous crime.'
Nilo, 35, who's been locked up in a Boston jail, is expected to be released later today. He'll leave with a GPS ankle monitor, surrender his passport and has been ordered to have no contact with victims and witnesses.

Nilo is charged with three counts of aggravated rape, two counts of kidnapping, one count of assault with the intent to rape and one count of indecent assault and battery.
Once released, he will be ordered to stay at least 1,000 feet away from scene of the crimes, Terminal Street in Charlestown.
Nilo, who once lived in the North End, was arrested at his home in Weehawken, New Jersey, more than 15 years after he allegedly terrorized four victims
At the time of the alleged rapes, Boston Police Department issued a warning that a man was attacking women after offering them rides home.
Nilo was identified to law enforcement through family members who voluntarily sent DNA samples to a genealogy database, like '23 and Me.'
According to a police affidavit, a dozen FBI agents and Boston Police officers arrested Nilo at his luxury apartment complex.
They lured him down to the lobby under the pretense that 'a large package had been delivered to him that did not fit in the ... lockers where the residents pick up packages.'
He was with his fiancée at the time of his arrest, and immediately invoked his Miranda rights.
Nilo is accused of assaulting the four women in or around Terminal Street in Charleston on August 18, 2007, November 22, 2007, August 5, 2008 and December 23, 2008.

A 23-year-old woman claims that she was approached by a man in his 20's after leaving a friend's home in the State Street area in the early hours.
She said she thought she knew the man, who offered her a ride to help her look for her vehicle before driving her to Terminal Street.
Nilo then allegedly told her to 'shut up' or he would kill her, claiming to have a weapon before raping her on a grassy area near railroad tracks, according to court filings.
The second attack took place in November 2007, when a woman, 23, was leaving a bar on State Street after attending a high school reunion.
Documents say that she got into Nilo's car, thinking it was a taxi, before giving him the address of an ATM near her apartment.
She claims that the man flashed a knife at her after she told him he missed the address, driving her to Terminal Street where he ordered her out of the car before raping her.
The third assault took place in August 2008, after Nilo allegedly approached a 36-year-old woman on Boston Common, promising her money if she went to Charlestown with him.
When they exited the car at Terminal Street, he allegedly 'tackled her to the ground, held a gun to her back' and raped her repeatedly.
Prosecutors said that all three women underwent a sexual assault examination, which yielded a DNA profile, which matched the male in each attack.
Police revisited the investigation last year, using 'forensic investigative genetic genealogy' which resulted in Nilo being placed
