BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — 24-year-old Prentiss Reese will have to come up with a lot of cash to get out of jail and we learned a little more about her during a Friday afternoon bond hearing.
Dressed in a black and white jail uniform, Reese was in court for the first time since Wednesday’s interstate crash that killed Mississippi motorcyclist Phillip Aldread.
Charged with reckless manslaughter, DUI and giving false names to law enforcement, District Judge William Scully set a total bond of 115 thousand dollars and added that it will have to be paid in cash.
If she is able to make bond she will be on GPS monitoring, drug tested and she can’t drive.
Investigators say Reese was behind the wheel of a Nissan Titan pick-up and high on prescription drugs when she rear-ended Aldread’s Harley Davidson trike as he traveled east on I-10 through Daphne.
Reese told the judge she has lived in Mobile for almost a year, has a job at a hotel and is currently on probation for an aggravated battery charge out of Louisiana.
