NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C.--- We want to update you on a News 12 Special Assignment from earlier this month.
A family in Waynesboro is calling for justice after their father's death. 7 years ago, their father, Doug Ide, was hit and killed by a man driving with drugs in his system.
The driver, William Jack Bailey, was released on probation earlier this year and just weeks later was re-arrested for driving under the influence.
Turns out it was his 4th DUI arrest. Monday night a Wadley judge ordered Bailey be placed on an ankle monitor. That monitor will check his sweat every 30 minutes for any trace of alcohol.
The Ide family calls it a step in the right direction.
The next court hearing is scheduled for January. The judge says Jack Bailey and his attorney have requested a jury trial in state court.
