According to reports from PCT 4, on August 27, 2019, deputies with Constable Mark Herman's Office responded to the Shell Gas Station located in the 17000 block of Timber Forest Drive in reference to a suspected drunk driver.
 
Upon deputies arriving, they identified the driver as Theresa Mir, who displayed several signs of intoxication.
 
Standardized Field Sobriety Tests were administered and it was discovered she was driving while intoxicated. She refused to provide a breath or blood specimen. A Constable Deputy was able to get a warrant for a blood specimen.
 
"Theresa Mir was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail, charged with Driving While Intoxicated. Her bond was set at $100.00 out of County Court 06." - Constable Mark Herman

@carol888 : That has to be a mistype. There's no way she would get out on $10 bail.

That's unacceptable! It seems as if the jails are packed, people have to go back to court, pay their legal dues to stay out, court/attorney costs and it's on their record but a hard lesson needs to be learned here, someone could've been killed had she not been busted and kept in a holding cell. Only to get out once processed for $10?

IMO, even if she is a first time offender (DUI/DWI) bail should definitely be much higher than $100. She could bond out for $10 and have change for a 'cool one' on the way home. No deterrent at all...........

"The bail reform is intended to relieve financial disparity among offenders. It would automatically qualify 85 percent of people arrested on misdemeanors for release on no-cash bonds, county officials have estimated. Those arrested for bail violations, repeat drunken driving and family violence would be the only exceptions."

@MrsT : this is awful. Even if it is a first offense the lives of the sober are more valuable than the drunken idiot.

@BusyMommy : First time dwi offenders rarely get jail time if convicted. I know someone who got one about a year ago. It was his first DWI but he already had multiple felonies. He got time served for the two days he was there before he bonded out and suspended license for a few months. It's ridiculous. And that was Montgomery co.

@MrsT :
The bonds are low, as they are misdemeanors and are PR bonds. I believe they want them to get out and get be able to get atty's to start paying the fees and fines. But the fines, lawyer fees, classes, mthly fees are not, maybe they should be more I'm not arguing that. But they pay minimum 10K-15K for the first DWI, I hear Montgomery County is more expensive

Well on Sunday evening my BIL got pulled over for DWI and unlawfully carry a weapon spent a couple of hours at Harris County Jail was released with no bond he just literally walked out of there and a court hearing on the 3rd. I told DH, WTH that is literally a slap on the hand it is ridiculous that he walked out of there freely without paying not one penny. Regardless that this is his first time.
