If convicted on all counts, Jefferson Potter could face up to 90 years in prison.
The man charged in last week's deadly hit and run crash is being held on $500,000 bond.
Douglas County Judge Edna Atkins ordered the bond during court Wednesday morning. Jefferson Potter is charged with manslaughter, theft and possession of a firearm. If convicted on all counts, he could face up to 90 years in prison.
Investigators say Potter stole a truck and trailer which was carrying lawn equipment near 33rd & Arbor Friday morning. Police spotted the pickup near 48th & Hickory but did not initiate a pursuit according to court documents. A short time later, Potter crashed at the intersection of Saddle Creek and Leavenworth.
Witnesses described Potter driving erratically and speeding when he collided with several cars before coming to a stop at Jiffy Lube. Potter tried to run but he was tackled and held by two witnesses. Officers also found Potter in possession of a gun.
In court Wednesday, prosecutors outlined Potter's criminal history which included the failure to appear in court four times. He also has a history of escape and seven prior felony convictions.
Potter is due back in Douglas County Court July 9th.
