Legally speaking

Posted: Updated:

The man accused of taking off after a deadly crash at a daycare is asking a judge for bond.

Regardless of what the judge decides, Robert Corchado will most likely stay behind bars.

Defense attorney Bob Fisher said that is because, as attorneys will probably argue, Corchado is a danger to the community. At the time of the crash, he was at liberty in Seminole county on the same type of offense.

Meanwhile, some parents are petitioning for new laws to help protect daycare facilities. So far, more than 100 people have signed a petition to create "Lily's Law." It would put barricades around child care centers.

Fisher said the law is a good idea to prevent similar tragedies from happening. However, he said lawmakers might not use this specific incident to pass such a law.
