Garrett Reid will not be paroled until an acceptable plan for his release is in place, a Montgomery County judge has ruled.
Reid, 24, the oldest son of Eagles coach Andy Reid, is nearing the earliest date for parole from the Montgomery County Correctional Facility on charges from a January traffic accident, but he has yet to resolve charges that he smuggled drugs into jail.
Before he could be paroled, Reid would have to post $50,000 bail on the smuggling charges. He has not done so.
Senior Deputy Attorney General E. Marc Costanzo said no request for parole had been submitted to Judge Steven T. O'Neill. The judge acted because he presumed that there will be one, Costanzo said yesterday.
A document filed by O'Neill said that "parole is denied pending further application setting forth a parole plan acceptable to the court."
Reid pleaded guilty Nov. 1 in connection with the traffic accident. O'Neill sentenced him to two to 23 months, and left open the possibility for Reid to be paroled into his drug-treatment court.
If found guilty in the October smuggling case, Reid could face up to two more years in jail and jeopardize his chances for the drug-treatment court.
Timothy Woodward, his attorney, would not comment on the case.
On Jan. 30, Reid ran a red light in Plymouth Township and seriously injured a woman from Mount Carmel, Northumberland County. He told police that he had used heroin before the crash.
At his sentencing, it was learned that Reid had been addicted to drugs for years and had been in inpatient rehab facilities in Pennsylvania, California and Florida.
Last week, his brother Britt, 22, failed to reach a plea agreement on charges of driving under the influence and other traffic offenses stemming from an August incident while he was out on bail. He is in jail after pleading guilty to a January road-rage incident.
