Next phase in the Ana Reepen case: preliminary hearing, Thursday, December 3 at 9 a.m. in Superior Court, Redwood City. (According to Wikipedia, a preliminary hearing is a proceeding, after a criminal complaint has been filed by the prosecutor, to determine whether there is enough evidence to require a trial. The judge must find that such evidence provides probable cause to believe that the crime was committed by the defendant.) Ana Reepen has pleaded not guilty and remains free on $250,000 bail following her arraignment on felony DUI charges. She is charged with vehicular manslaughter with intoxication and gross negligence and two counts of felony driving under the influence of alcohol in the accident that killed local hair stylist Bruce Ross Bernor. The two counts of felony DUI relate to Reepen having a blood alcohol level of more than 0.15 and inflicting great bodily injury or death in the commission of the offense. Her blood alcohol level was reported to be 0.21. Turning the wrong way from Sea Bowl Lane, Reepen drove southbound in the northbound lanes of Highway 1 on July 25. Reepen's car and Bernor's car collided there. Stay tuned for more details as we get them from our reporters. In the meantime, follow this thread at the Comments link below this post.
