Jermall Charlo Released From Jail, Due In Court In March

Jermall Charlo

Jermall Charlo has been released from Fort Bend County Jail on Monday, following a modification of the bail bond conditions.

Charlo was arrested and booked on February 11 with one count of third-degree felony assault, for which remained in detention over the weekend. A first court date has been set for the case, which stems from an incident which allegedly took place last September 5, over the Labor Day weekend in Fort Bend County according to a copy of police records obtained by BoxingScene.com.

The arrest report alleges that Charlo “did then and there intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly cause bodily injury to (the alleged victim) by punching or grabbing him by his hair. It is further presented in and to said court that at the time of the offense alleged above, (the alleged victim) was a member of the defendant’s family or household.”

With Jermall Charlo being released from jail, he will now return to court on March 28 where he will be asked to plea guilty or not guilty. Should he be found guilty of second-degree charges which doubles the maximum sentence to up to 20 years in prison if found guilty. The charge also carries a separate fine of up to $10,000, even without jail time served. It also carries a minimum prison sentence of two years whether charged as third- or second-degree, although it includes the possibility of probation under either charge.

Charlo last fought back in June and beat Juan Mactias Montiel by decision to improve his record to 32-0 and defend his WBC middleweight belt. When he will be able to fight again is uncertain but Premier Boxing Championship, who promotes Charlo, has no comment on the matter.

“It’s an open police investigation,” Tim Smith, Vice President of Communications noted to BoxingScene.com. “We don’t comment on legal matters.”
