    I agree with Sam & Chris.
    Drinking & driving is a BIG BAD MISTAKE. And the drunk comes out alive & others die . Not to good for our laws to allow them to be free . It’s not right .

      Drunk driving is indeed a serious offense with potentially devastating consequences. It’s awful to think of innocent people being killed because of someone else’s reckless choice.

      A bond doesn’t mean the accused goes unpunished. It’s a temporary measure before trial, not a final verdict. Unknown in this case, but conditions can be placed on bonds. For example, installing ignition interlocks, revoking driving privileges, or mandating alcohol monitoring.

      Cases involving fatalities, judges often set very high bonds or deny bond altogether. The system aims to balance public safety with constitutional rights. The Eighth Amendment to the US Constitution prohibits “excessive bail.” Regardless of how one might feel about the crime or defendent, if one believes in the principles of our Nation, then one has to embrace all of our rights- not just cherry pick some of them.

      In this case, the bond is a steep amount. It serves to ensure the defendetent will make all appeaerances in court. We live in a county that has strong legal institutions, but our legal system only works when we maintain the idea that someone accused of a crime is innocent until proven guilty.
