Jonathan Pitts, who is suspected of murder and was about to go to trial this week, will be released from the Dallas County Jail.
It has been noted that the city might have lost the evidence for his case.
Because the prosecutors were not prepared for trial on Thursday, he will be let go on a personal recognizance bond. In other terms, he won’t have a bail to pay.
The City of Dallas lost many files when they started to use a new data system. Pitts’s case is the first to be documented as affected. There is still a chance that his case could go to trial because some evidence may be found later.
However, this was something that the city was dreading might happen.
They have said that the missing files are a result of an employee not following proper procedures.
