DA seeks to revoke bond for man charged with 15th DWI
What's that about an old dog and new tricks??? Maybe a rolled up newpaper would be better...
A man who has 14 previous DWI convictions in other states has been arrested for DWI in Farmington.Jones Manheimer, who is in his 60s, was released from the San Juan County Detention Center Wednesday after Magistrate James Atcitty reduced an initial $100,000 bond to $5,000.
District Attorney Lyndy Bennett says he will try to have the higher bond reinstated. The case has been bound over to district court. It has not been assigned to a judge.
Bennett said Manheimer is both a flight risk and danger to the community. Public Defender Raymond Archambeau says his client is in poor health and is not a risk.
According to court documents, Manheimer was convicted of four DWIs between 1972 and 1979 in Arizona. He received 10 more convictions in Utah from 1971 and 1994.
