Bond reduced for prisoner with cancer

DeKALB -- Bond was reduced Monday for a 29-year-old DeKalb man who has a form of cancer and a heart condition.

Prince Montgomery, of the 800 block of Greenbrier Road, was charged Dec. 6 with posession of marijuana with the intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school and possession of marijuana.

Montgomery has Hodgkin's lymphoma, an immune system cancer, and cardiomyopathy, a heart muscle disease. He takes medication for both conditions, but he was not receiving his medication in jail, said Robert Carlson, Assistant Public Defender.

Bond was reduced from $20,000 to $4,500. Montgomery was in custody for 11 days before he posted $450 bail and was released.

Montgomery also has pending charges of aggravated driving under the influence with a suspended or revoked license and one count of possession between 2.5 and 10 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting a peace officer.

Montgomery was in custody on those charges from July 1-3.

He is next due in court Jan. 16.
