Bonds not reduced in VFW case
Deputy Tony Taylor directs Brooke Hale out of the courtroom following her Tuesday morning hearing.
Amid protests by the district attorney, three people charged in the plot to kill local businessman Mike Hale will be allowed to ask for their bonds to be reduced Thursday for their roles in the attack outside the VFW.“I have to object,” said District Attorney General Lisa Zavogiannis after General Sessions Judge Bill Locke set the bond hearing for this Thursday.Her objection was to the short notice given for the bond hearing for suspects, Jack Redmon, 44, Brooke Hale, 33, and Tracy Bouldin, 45. They are all charged with attempted homicide in the daylight attack of Hale in the parking lot of the VFW on the afternoon of Aug. 9.Hale suffered two stab wounds to the chest and midsection, allegedly at the hands of Redmon. The victim has recently been released from the hospital after undergoing surgery.“My client has been held for six days without proof she was involved,” said Larry Bryant, who is representing Brooke Hale.
