California judge agrees to release 17 year old girl who says she was raped

Prosecutors feared teen would flee rather than testify at trial

CommentsTHE ASSOCIATED PRESS Monday, April 16, 2012,


SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A California judge on Monday ordered the release of a 17-year-old girl who had been placed in juvenile hall last month because prosecutors feared she would flee rather than testify at the upcoming trial of a suspected rapist.

Superior Court Judge Lawrence Brown previously ordered the girl held because she has a history of running away. On Monday, he said she would be freed with a GPS ankle bracelet after prosecutors and the girl's attorneys agreed to the release.
