Huber gets out of jail

Daniel ("Potatoe") Huber was released from the McHenry County Jail yesterday about 11:00am, after posting $4,500 bond on his two felony charges related to the July 1 traffic fatalities of Alec Kaiser and Jacob Norys.

It took McHenry County Sheriff's Dept. accident investigators several days after the July 1st crash to determine that Huber may have been drag-racing with Kaiser, who was driving the Norys family car. In the seven weeks since the crash, to my knowledge the Northwest Herald has not reported the ownership of the car.

A telephone call was placed from Kaiser's cell phone to Huber's cell phone at 1:58AM. The crash probably occurred at 2:00AM and was reported at 2:02AM. Kaiser's cell phone records might indicate the time at which the call was terminated. Certainly, Huber knows whether Kaiser and he were talking when the crash occurred.

Additional information that probably should have been held for court has apparently been given by an Assistant State's Attorney to the Northwest Herald reporter. I'm more than curious about the leak, since such information could very likely compromise the State's case against Huber.

There appear to have been at least two passengers in Huber's car, a man and a woman.

Presumably, the Sheriff's Department or the State's Attorney will be able to get cell phone records for the telephones of Huber and Norys. Since there was marijuana in the urine of both Kaiser and Norys, investigators should be looking hard at where two 16-year-old high school sophomores would get marijuana. If the feeling is "everybody uses it", then maybe it's time to make some examples out of the users and the suppliers. Regardless of whether it was a contributory cause of the crash, it's unlawful.
