Parents released on signature bond
Jenna Danish and Thomas Williams Jr.
SIREN - The parents charged with Neglect of a child resulting in death were released from jail Monday, Sept. 17, on a $25,000 signature bond.
Jenna Danish and Thomas Williams Jr. appeared at a 2:30 p.m. bail hearing without legal representation before Judge Ken Kutz.
Kutz waived a cash component of the signature bond as the couple had less than $20 to their name. The state requested a $15,000 bond with a $1,000 cash provision. Kutz ordered they maintain absolute sobriety and remain living in Burnett County. They must notify the clerk of court if they move from the county. An initial appearance was set for Sept. 26 at 2 p.m at the Burnett County Government Center.
The Danbury couple had spent just over a day in custody after turning themselves in to authorities on Sunday at approximately noon. A warrant was issued Friday by the Burnett County Sheriff's Dept.
Danish and Williams, if found guilty of the charge, could receive up to 25 years in prison each and/or a $10,000 fine each. They have reportedly hired attorney John Grindell to represent them. See this week's Inter-County Leader for any updates on this story.
