KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - A District Court judge
has refused to lower bail for a Big Island man charged with manslaughter
in the death of his young son.
West Hawaii Today (http://is.gd/aKSfte) says 38-year-old Pedro Peter made his first court appearance Monday morning.
Peter's lawyer asked Judge Joseph Florendo to lower
the bail amount from $52,000 to $5,000 or $10,000. But, the judge
rejected that proposal. Prosecutors pointed out that Peter had
previously failed to appear in court on traffic charges.
Peter was driving when his 3-year-old son fell out
of the cab of a truck and was run over. He is charged with manslaughter,
driving without a license, failure to have no-fault insurance, four
counts of failure to have a child restraint and three counts of
endangering the welfare of a minor.
