Mychal Bell's bail was posted today and it looks as if he will be released soon.
This is great news. This comes after the Governor forced District Attorney Reed Walters to halt his appeal of a 3rd District Court decision to move his case to juvenile court.
Clearly the pressure has worked and we're well on our way to a complete victory for the Jena 6...
