Bond Lowered For Lake George Man Charged In Boating Accident
A Local man charged in the Lake George boating accident that killed an 8 year old girl could be released from jail as early as Monday.
Alex West of Lake George was arraigned in late October on a manslaughter charge in the boating accident that killed 8 year old Charlotte McCue this past summer. He has remained in jail since the hearing when the judge set bail at $100,000 cash or $300,000 bond.
News Channel 13 reports in an exclusive report, that West’s attorney has requested and been granted a new bail condition by a Supreme Court Judge. The new bail condition would lower bail to a $200,000 bond and require West to be monitored with an ankle bracelet 24 hours a day. He would also have a 9 pm curfew and would be ordered to stay away from drugs and alcohol.
According to West's attorney, he expected him to post the $200,000 bond Thursday night and be released Monday.
