MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A career criminal, who FOX10 has been watching for weeks, is expected back in court Wednesday, April 24, 2013.
The Mobile County District Attorney's Office said it intends to seek a higher bond in hopes of putting Ted Snow back in jail, and keeping him there.
Snow, who has been arrested at least 28 times in Mobile, bonded out of jail in March 2013, less than two hours after he was charged with receiving stolen property.
Snow, however, bonded out of jail two days before then on burglary charges.
Snow is scheduled to appear before Judge Jay York Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.
"The Ted Snow situation is like so many others we see. It is someone who's a habitual criminal who's getting out of jail and going right back into the community and doing the exact same things again so it's very disheartening and were trying to stop that cycle," said Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich.
It's a cycle Rich said is reaching younger and younger generations. FOX10 profiled Jermaine Gillis, 18, on Monday, April 22, 2013.
Police said they arrested the teen Thursday, April 18 during a police chase, while he was out on bond.
Gillis was arrested a little more than three months prior in connection to a brutal shooting on Octavia Drive.
Nevertheless, Gillis bonded out of jail in less than 24 hours after his most recent arrest.
Rich said police could have called her office to put a hold on Gillis.
"We call the judge, whatever time, if it's in the middle of the night, we call and wake the judge up. We ask the judge to place a hold on him until we can have a bond hearing," Rich said.
Police said Gillis racked up eight additional charges, all of which have preset bonds attached to them.
Authorities said patrol officers didn't know about Gillis' history and that a detective would have gotten involved, had the crimes been more violent.
Gillis is expected in court in May, where prosecutors intend to see that his bond be revoked.
As for Snow, Rich said her office is confident in their evidence against him.
"Well I can't go into the specifics of the case because the preliminary hearing is tomorrow. I think if you go to the preliminary hearing tomorrow you'll learn a lot more about the facts," said Rich.
