Contractor bonds out of jail for DWI

A local contractor has bonded out of Wichita County jail after a visiting judge agrees to set bonds on 2 counts of violation of probation of previous DWI cases.
    
Chad Wilson had been behind bars for more than 100 days after judge Monte Lawlis in June initially denied the motion by attorney Bob Estrada to set bonds. 89th district judge Charles Barnard recused himself from the case.  

Today judge Lawlis agreed to set Wilson's bonds at $50,000 on each count.
Previous conditions of being out on bond will continue, which includes a locking device on his vehicles.          

Estrada said Wilson will also continue wearing an ankle monitoring device that checks his blood every 30 minutes for the presence of alcohol.

Prosecutors  filed to have his probation revoked because they say he did not turn in forms showing he completed 10 hours of community service in may and did not successfully complete a substance abuse program.

Last year 89th district judge Charles Barnard declined to revoke Wilsons probation against the district attorney's advice. Prosecutors say in his last DWI arrest he was swerving all over the road and had pieces of a tree on his bumper.  They said Wilson posed a threat to the community.

Estrada says Wilson has been clean with no violations in three years. Whether  Wilson's 4-year probation sentence will be revoked remains to be determined at a future hearing.
