Mychal Bell is free after a local judge set a bond of $45,000, which a local bail bonding firm quickly posted on Bell’s behalf.

Thank God!

While Bell is free today, remember that it’s not over and that this case is still pending and Mychal could be sent back to jail until he is 21.  Of the rest of the Jena 6, one of the remaining five has been charged as a juvenile, three others await trial as adults and one youth has yet to be arraigned.
