VIRGINIA BEACH -- A man charged with driving drunk and killing a long-time friend was granted bond Wednesday morning.

Cameron Paul Crockett is charged in the December 28 crash that killed John "Jack" Korte.

Police say Crockett, 20, was speeding when he lost control and struck a tree on Wolfsnare Road.

According to the sheriff's office, Crockett's bond is $20,000. If posted, he's to stay at his mother's home and be inside by 10:00 p.m. He's also been ordered to avoid contact with Korte's family; refrain from use of drugs and excessive use of alcohol and submit to random drug and alcohol screening. He must continue his education and surrender his passport to his attorney, according to spokeswoman Paula Miller.

Miller also said should Crockett get his license, he's required to have an ignition interlock on his vehicle.

Crockett is due in court for a preliminary hearing on February 12.

He's charged with aggravated involuntary manslaughter, DUI, refusal, illegal possession of alcohol and driving without a license.
