“I’m numb. I’m hurt. I’m disappointed,” said Javon’s mother, Jackie Reilly. “I’m not happy that you can go out and do this and just pay money, pay and get out to go do whatever you want.”

Prosecutors asked Reed receive a $200,000 cash bond. A judge gave him that amount with a 10 percent fee. Reed paid the $20,000 needed to get out. 

Prosecutors declined to talk about the bond amount and specifics about the case. 

Reed’s jury trial is set for October 2017.
