Lexington County, SC (WLTX) - The 18-year-old arrested in connection with a police chase that killed three Irmo teenagers was in bond court on Wednesday morning.
Renas Davis was released on a $13,500 surety bond for six charges, including three counts of failure to stop for blue lights resulting in death, one count of failure to stop for blue lights resulting in bodily harm, one count of child endangerment and one count of possession of a stolen vehicle.
In court, Davis' attorney explained that his family had been through a lot since the April 4th wreck. His brother Reshad Davis, 14 was killed in the crash and his 13 year old brother was injured.
Their mother appeared calm during the hearing and says her family has been changed forever.
"Three of my children were involved in this accident and it's left a damper on my home," says Ronnisha Davis. "It's a sad situation. It's not anything that you could think of."
During the hearing investigators explained that Renas Davis had been out on bond for a previous stolen vehicle charge at the time of the wreck. They recommended that when released, he have GPS monitoring and be put on house arrest.
Davis is currently a senior at Irmo High School and his attorney Steve Davis says he was pleased that he will be able to return to school.
"I have no issue with the bond that Judge Buck set," explained his attorney. "Everything being considered, we're pleased."
Davis' mother says all six of the boys in the accident grew up together and went to elementary school together. It's been a month, but she says she hasn't spoken to the families of the two other teens that died in the accident, Travion Green, 13 and Travis Green Jr., 15.
"I still love them," says Davis' mother "We are still family and we will get through this together."
