Bond was set at $150,000 Monday for a Loudoun County lawyer accused of driving drunk and killing an Ashburn couple earlier this month.
Mark Sgarlata, a partner in a Tysons Corner law firm, faces two counts of aggravated involuntary manslaughter for killing Ricky and Leia Wrenn, when he drove his car into their motorcycle.
Prosecutors had argued against bond for Sgarlata, 52, calling him a danger to the community. They appealed a $25,000 bond set earlier by one judge and Sgarlata remained behind bars.
Monday, another judge did grant bond -- but at a much higher $150,000. Sgarlata must also surrender his passport, is forbidden from leaving Virginia or driving, and must wear both alcohol-detecting and GPS devices.
The victims' son, Kyle Wrenn, says he wishes Sgarlata would be forced to stay in jail, but believes these bond conditions are better than before.
"[A] $25,000 [bond] to my family just seemed like a slap in the face," he said. "You get $25,000 for shoplifting, let alone a man that's killed two people, so obviously not happy but significantly more satisfied that he can't leave the commonwealth...."
Sgarlata's blood alcohol test at the scene of the crash registered 0.223. Another test given later registered .15, almost twice the legal limit.
His next hearing is set for Nov. 20.
Investigators say Sgarlata made a left turn into a shopping center just after midnight Oct. 6 and crashed into the Wrenns on their motorcycle, killing them.
He had faced another DUI charge in the past. Records show arrested in March 2011, but the charge was pleaded down to reckless driving. He had a restricted license for six months.
