MOTION FOR BOND
v. REDUCTION

VALERIE LOUISE KUHLERS,

Defendant.



COMES NOW the defendant and for her Motion states to the Court as follows:
1. The defendant is currently incarcerated on a bond totalling $105,000.
2. The defendant is a 56 year old lady with no significant criminal history. She has ties
to the community including a spouse, children and grandchildren, such that she is not a
flight risk.
3. The defendant has no resources to post bond. She is unemployed and has some
medical problems that is currently preventing her from working other than occasional
babysitting.
4. The defendant was arraigned in case number FECR012390 on August 27, 2013.
This case is somewhat related to the case at bar. The defendant has been released on
her own recognizance since that time.
5. Additionally the defendant was charged with theft in the first degree in the case at
bar and on or about December 18, 2013 appeared on that charge and again was
released on her own recognizance. Nothing has changed in the meantime to warrant
the substantial increase in bond as ordered by the Court. With her life long ties to the
community and her prior record, the defendant is not a flight risk or at risk to be a repeat
offender. There is no risk to the community.
E-FILED 2014 JAN 23 10:06 AM SAC - CLERK OF DISTRICT COURT
6. Since August of 2013, the defendant has voluntarily been attending substance abuse
counseling and these records can be provided to the Court at any hearing. The
Defendant's participation has been "excellent" and her insight has been "excellent".
7. For the above reasons it is appropriate that the defendant be released on her own
recognizance. Defendant requests that the Court enter the proposed Order immediately
or in the alternative this matter be set and heard on the next available court date.
8. The undersigned has consulted with the Sac County attorney, Ben Smith and he
agrees to the above request and to an Order being entered to release defendant
immediately on her own recognizance.
WHEREFORE defendant prays as set forth above.
