According to the Gallatin district attorney, a Tennessee woman charged with killing a teen girl in a drunk driving accident, remains free even though she has violated the conditions of her bond. The 42-year-old woman is accused of killing a 14-year-old last Spring and has been out on bond since March. As one of the conditions of the accused's bond, the woman was prohibited from drinking alcohol. However, laboratory tests showed the woman has failed three alcohol tests since March. The District Attorney motioned for her bond to be revoked. The mother of the victim appeared on Wednesday to make sure the bond was revoked at the Sumner County Criminal Court. Unexpectedly, a representative from the lab did not show up to court, leaving the accused free to walk. The hearing has been moved to next week, which leaves the victim’s family feeling upset and frustrated. The judge wants to wait until all evidence can be presented and ordered the accused to take a drug test on the day. The new hearing will be scheduled for next Wednesday.
