In February, a judge denied Kennedy bond after a toxicology report revealed that he was under the influence of marijuana and Prozac at the time of the crash.
On Feb. 24, Kennedy appeared before a Circuit Court judge who delayed the decision on his bond a second time. Kennedy’s attorney filed a motion to obtain his medical records. A virtual court hearing revealed that the teen was prescribed a double dose of Prozac. The attorney for Kennedy then requested an emergency hearing on March 10, but the judge refused to set a bond and continued to delay the case. On April 28, Kennedy appeared before another judge and a new bond decision was made.

felony DUI with death charge
