Torrence, however, still sat in jail for his traffic case, for which the bail review judge agreed to a release. As fate would have it, the judge was on vacation. Another hurdle. Even if they were in town, paperwork has a way of mysteriously vanishing at the jail. So, I advised Torrence's family to just pay the $10 to get him out. $25 and roughly eight hours later, Torrence was home. Eight hours, while appalling, is typical for someone to be released (except for police officers). New to me, though, was the jail's insistence that they could not take a bail payment of less than $25. Torrence was released from custody in the early morning hours of May 28.
