  1. Talking Garbage. Anyone would get bail when charged with causing death by dangerous driving. Also the bail set is appropriate for the charge and (supposedly) for her income. If she got special treatment from the police and/or the magistrate that is understandable. After all she is the magistrate’s fellow professional and not a common criminal. You are behaving as though the accident was a hit and run and she was under the influence of alcohol.
