Rev. Charles Eddy Lepp will be released from custody Wednesday April 20th 2005 thanks to Lynette Shaw, from the Marin Alliance. Shaw has come through with the property needed to insure Rev. Lepp?s bail.
On Monday April 18th 2005 at 3:00pm Shaw, along with Omar Figueroa one of Rev. Lepp?s lawyers, met with the prosecuting attorney, David Hall, on the conditions of Rev. Lepp?s release. With the promise of Shaw?s Marin County home as collateral and the guarantee of all formal paperwork to follow soon after, Hall agreed to release Rev. Lepp. They will all meet before Magistrate Judge James in the San Francisco Federal Court Building on Wednesday 4-20-05 at 9:30am to officially release Rev. Lepp.
Upon his release from jail Rev. Lepp will be allowed to medicate and posses his medical marijuana during his trail but must promise not to grow for himself, his family, or his patients. Rev.
