Bass DUI hearing postponed

November 1, 2005

Leesburg -- A Lee County court hearing for the man who already served six years in prison for vehicular homicide was postponed today, because the defendant's attorney, T. Gamble, was in another court procedure in Tampa, Florida.

Thomas Bass was to appear in court to answer yet another Driving Under the Influence charge in Dougherty County. This after Bass had been convicted and sent to prison for the 1999 homicide by vehicle death of Christopher Brown, who was run over by Bass as Brown and his friend J. C. Wescott were riding their bikes on Stock Dairy Road in Lee County.

Christopher Brown's mother, Tammy Brown, says she wants Bass kept off the streets. In fact, she wants him to serve the remainder of the 20-year sentence he received for killing her son.

Bass was released in June of this year. BySeptember, he had already been arrested once again for driving under the influence.

Tammy Brown, who now lives on Florida, said that she would "wear out the road" testifying against Bass, if that's what it took to keep him off the roads.

Ms. Brown also says that "justice needs to be done in this case," and that laws need to be changed to give harsher penalties to those convicted of DUI.

Bass' court date was moved to November 15. He remains incarcerated in the Lee County Jail.
