Prosecutor Joe Deters: "The bond of a dangerous felon is important. The criminal who killed those innocent people at the Waukesha Christmas parade was out on just $1,000 bond from his felony charges. Now in Hamilton County, we have a defendant with a manslaughter conviction on his record, caught carrying a firearm while fleeing from the police, and now back out for that same low bond amount. It’s more important than ever that we pay attention to who is being let back out onto our streets. Our lives, and the lives of our loved ones, might depend on it." ... See MoreSee Less
