A man charged in a vehicular homicide case has been given restrictions after making a $50,000 bond.

Milton Guin III, 23, appeared Thursday in the courtroom of Criminal Court Judge Don Poole.

DUI Prosecutor Kate Lavery said Guin had agreed to wear a device from House Arrest Systems that alerts authorities should he try to drive a vehicle while drinking. He will also have to undergo random drug screens.

Guin is charged in the Sept. 23, 2011, traffic death of Vickie Pippin. Police said Guin went across the center line on Hixson Pike and struck the 1995 Nissan Quest minivan driven by Ms. Pippin. The two children of Ms. Pippin were treated for injuries from the wreck.

Guin was also injured in the wreck and walks with a limp. He turned himself in at the county jail in January 2012 after spending several months in recovery.

Guin was charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication, vehicular assault, reckless endangerment, violation of a traffic control device, driving under the influence and unlawful use of a hand-held mobile telephone while driving.

The husband of Ms. Pippin has filed a $3.4 million lawsuit against Guin and his father, Milton Guin Jr. Guin was driving his father's 2000 Mercury Sable at the time of the crash.

The case had been set to go to trial this month, but attorney Hilary Hodgkins just entered the case in August. Jan. 19 was retained as a date for a possible disposition if a settlement is worked out. The new trial date is March 19.

A Thankful List

David Jeremiah said it best, that we have a tendency to concentrate on the things we don’t have rather than what God has already blessed us with.  Perhaps, he said, it is because there is not enough parchment available in this world to record all God’s bountiful blessings should we try to list them. This Thanksgiving let us gather our family close to us, whisper a prayer ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Vote DesJarlais Out!

There are two good bills in both the Senate and the House of Representatives right now that are directly aimed at the sadistic villains who derive some sick pleasure out of torturing helpless Tennessee Walking Horses. They call it “soring,” where caustic materials are lathered into a horse’s forelegs and then wrapped in plastic so they’ll cook. Sometimes they use nails or screws ... (click for more)
