HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The 20-year-old accused of intentionally plowing into a group of teens in Ewa Beach, critically injuring one, made his first appearance in court Monday.

Malik Morton is charged with attempted murder and terroristic threatening.

The May 17 sent two victims to the hospital.

Ryan Ilar, 17, has been been released, while 18-year-old Alisha Brown remains in a coma.

Victor Bakke, Morton's attorney, says his client is being treated unfairly.

"We've done everything possible to cooperate in this case, we were prepared to talk with the detectives and do all kinds of things with them," Bakke said.

"Then they slapped us with this million dollar bail. So if they want to play that way, then we'll play that way. I hope they got their act together because they way they're handling this case right now, is completely ridiculous." 

Morton turned himself on Thursday. His preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday.
