A judge has reduced the bond of a South Carolina woman accused of driving her minivan into the Atlantic Ocean with her three children inside.
Judge Leah Case lowered Ebony Wilkerson's bond from $1.2 million to $90,000 Thursday after hearing testimony from a psychiatrist that she didn't believe Wilkerson was a danger to the community.
She has been back in a Daytona Beach jail for a week since giving birth to her fourth child, a boy, on May 19.
If Wilkerson posts bond she must remain in Florida, have no contact with her children and take anti-psychotic medication.
Wilkerson testified Thursday that she would comply with all of those conditions. The public defender representing Wilkerson on three counts each of attempted murder and child abuse said the bond remains too high.
