Richard Sherman has finally been released from jail … a judge just let him out without bail while his criminal case plays out — calling the NFL star a “pillar in this community.”
The King County court judge, however, did put some conditions on the release … including ordering Sherman to stay away from his father-in-law, as well as not possess any firearms.
The judge also made it clear Sherman is to not consume any alcohol … and ordered the former Seattle Seahawks cornerback to appear in person for all future court dates.
It’s a pretty big win for Sherman — who did not appear in the Washington court and was instead represented by his attorney — considering prosecutors were asking the judge to set the NFL star’s bail at $10,000.
As part of his ruling, the judge said of Sherman, “I see Mr. Sherman is a pillar in this community. He’s a business owner. He’s a husband. He’s a father.”
“I’m going to release Mr. Sherman on his own promise to return to court.”
As we previously reported, the 33-year-old was arrested on Wednesday … after cops say he physically tried to force his way into his in-laws’ home.
Sherman is potentially facing multiple criminal charges, including resisting arrest and DUI.
