Why isn’t drunk driver still in jail?

-A A +A

On Jan. 8, my daughter and I were the first ones on the scene of an accident on Harrisburg Road in Indian Land.
The driver, William Justin Rigsbee of Indian Land, was drunk and there were open containers in the vehicle and all over the road.
My 10-year-old daughter found the passenger, Steve Lee Jones of Charlotte, in a ditch. He had been thrown from the vehicle, which had flipped. The passenger died there. This was very traumatic for my daughter.
I just found out that the drunk driver has been released from jail on bond.   
Why would a judge let a drunk driver who killed someone out on bail?  
Everyone in Indian Land should be outraged that this man lives here in our community and is out of jail and able to drink and drive again.
