Judge Ted Hamer has denied a bond reduction for Tammy Hagerty, 32, of Galva.

Hagerty charged with Class X felony aggravated unlawful participation in meth manufacturing, Class 1 felony possession of anhydrous ammonia, Class 1 felony possession of a deadly substance, Class 2 felony possession of meth-manufacturing materials, four counts Class 2 felony meth-related child endangerment and Class 3 felony possession of meth, less than five grams.

Hagerty’s bond was set earlier at $250,000, meaning she would need to post $25,000.

Testifying on her own behalf, Hagerty said her source of income is child support, although she had been trying to look for a job. She said her only property is a 1994 Chevy S-10 Blazer.

She sought to have bond reduced to $100,000 with 10 percent.

The judge said he was denying her request based on the nature of the charges and possible penalties.

Her next court date is July 23.
