Holland posts bond, no longer locked up for Carmona death

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock man charged in a deadly hit & run case was able to post bond and get out jail Wednesday evening.  Jail records say Thomas Holland, 23, of Lubbock was released at 5:15 PM, after meeting the requirements of a $40,000 bond.

Holland was charged this week with the November 26th death of Juan Carmona, 23.  A passer-by found Carmona's body in the 200 block of Parkway.  Days later police confiscated Carmona's black Mitsubishi which had damage to the right front and the windshield.

Court records says a witness will testify that Holland was drunk at the time of the accident.  But those same courts say Carmona was also intoxicated. 

Carmona's family has questioned the severity of charges, even asking publicly why Holland is not charged with murder.  Officially, Holland is charged with Failure To Stop & Render Aid - Serious Bodily Injury.
