Six were arrested, 5 have been released on bail because their families raised the money.
Since the appeals court overturned his conviction, Mychal Bell is still being held with bond set at $90K.
"The black teen at the center of a furor over legal racism remained behind bars – though charges against him were thrown out Friday - because the judge and prosecutor didn’t come to a bail hearing yesterday, his lawyer said.
“We showed up. There was nobody there,” said Bob Noel, lawyer for 17-year-old Mychal Bell of Jena, La. “No DA, no judge.”
A woman who answered the phone at District Attorney Reed Walters’ office said he had no bail procedure on his calendar.
An appeals court on Friday threw out the conviction of Bell, who was charged as an adult with attempted murder last year for punching a white classmate in a schoolyard scuffle. The charges were later reduced to aggravated battery, a charge the appeals court said should have been dealt with in juvenile court.
Noel had filed a motion to have Bell released - or his $90,000 bail reduced - while the prosecutor mulls whether to appeal the overturning of Bell’s conviction. He has two weeks to decide." Helen Kennedy, New York Daily News
Why doesn't Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Martin Luther King III, and other notables that have spoken out on the J-6 and attended the protest yesterday, kick in a few bucks and get Mychal out of jail?
