Shooting suspect Deborah A. Reimer stands a good chance of getting out of jail after her bond was reduced Tuesday afternoon in Blaine County 5th District Court.
Reimer, who has been charged with second-degree attempted murder, can be released from jail if she's able to post $50,000 bond. Bail was reduced 10-fold for the suspect following arguments by her court-appointed attorney, Keith Roark, before District Court Judge Barry Wood.
Roark told the court that Reimer will be staying with a friend in Gooding and that her family has promised to post the $5,000 bond premium to get her out of jail.
Reimer had not been released as of press deadline late Tuesday afternoon. Blaine County Jail personnel reported that Reimer was returned to the Gooding County Jail, where she has been incarcerated since her arrest in July.
Bond was originally set at $500,000. Reimer was arrested on July 18 after she allegedly fired two shots earlier in the day at former boyfriend Bob Dreyer at his home at Glade Court in southern Ketchum.
Wood mandated in reducing bond that Reimer not be allowed in Blaine County except for court proceedings or to meet with her attorney. She is also required to wear an ankle monitor so that her whereabouts can be traced.
Dreyer, who attended the bond reduction hearing, said later that he is not comfortable with the arrangement.
"I have places outside the county, too," he said.
Wood admonished the defendant to abide by the conditions of her release.
"The prosecutor is against this, and if there's a problem you can bet that the prosecuting attorney's office is going to file a motion to have you reincarcerated," Wood said
Jury trial for Reimer, which is expected to last five days, is scheduled to start in 5th District Court in Hailey on Jan. 15, 2008.
