No bail for Md. man in deadly 2006 crash

By The Frederick (Md.) News-Post

A Frederick County Circuit judge has ordered a man who pleaded guilty to manslaughter and drunken driving in 2007 held without bail because he allegedly violated the conditions of his probation.

Prosecutors say 48-year-old David Helms of Bethesda has been forging slips for Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and driving without an interlock device on his vehicle.

A violation of probation hearing is set for Feb. 18.

Helms was sentenced to seven years in prison in the death of 61-year-old Leonard Cave, a high school teacher in Germantown.

Cave's minivan was struck by Helms' truck in 2006.
