The mother of two missing children has hired new attorneys and is again asking for her $5 million bail to be reduced ahead of her first court appearance in Idaho Friday.
Daybell has hired three new Idaho-based attorneys, who have already requested that her bail be lowered. Lori's attorneys in Kaua'i had previously asked a judge there to reduce her bail two separate times. Both requests were denied, with the Kaua'i prosecutor arguing that Lori is a flight risk.
Lori faces two counts of felony desertion of a child in the disappearance of her two children, Joshua "JJ" Vallow, 7, and Tylee Ryan, 17, who were last seen in September. She also faces misdemeanor charges of resisting and obstructing an officer, solicitation of a crime, and contempt, according to the Madison County, Idaho, prosecutor's office. Lori has denied all allegations of wrongdoing.
