Tyler’s Charges Dropped!
This morning, prosecutors dismissed the robbery charges against Tyler, the third person CCBF ever posted bond for! Back in February, CCBF posted $2,500 to get Tyler off of electronic monitoring, which had kept him incarcerated in his own home and prevented him from working. Here’s a photo of Bond Fund volunteers Sharlyn, Chez, and Max with Tyler and his mom today after we all left court.
Tyler and his mom are super relieved to no longer have this case hanging over their heads after 17 long months. Now, Tyler’s bond (minus the $100 clerk’s fee) will come back to the bond fund to be used to free someone else from incarceration in Cook County Jail or their home.
