An anonymous benefactor has posted $500,000 bail for the 19-year-old Texan who had been imprisoned for months after a violent comment that he left on his own Facebook page.
According to MSNBC, Justin Carter was freed on Thursday after an “anonymous good Samaritan” donated the money to the family to get him out of jail. Carter’s attorneys did not immediately respond to Ars’ request for comment. However, Officer McKay—who declined to give her first name—of the Comal County Jail did confirm to Ars that Carter had posted bail and was released.
As we reported previously, earlier this year Carter posted messages to his own Facebook page in response to a dispute on the game League of Legends, saying, “I’m f**ked in the head alright, I think I’ma SHOOT UP A KINDERGARTEN.”
