YNW Bortlen, who's been charged along with YNW Melly for the 2019 murders of YNW Juvy and YNW Sakchaser, has been released from jail for the second time and will await his trial under house arrest.
Bortlen first made bail earlier this year. However, he was rather quickly tracked going to multiple strip clubs and was locked right back up since he was only allowed to leave home for work and he doesn't work at a strip club.
He's back out again, and the families of his victims aren't happy about it.
“Our family desperately awaits justice in the criminal and civil courts. These unprecedented times leave us with no control, but we expect the trials of Jamell Demons and Cortlen Henry to occur in the near future. We do appreciate the State of Florida’s efforts to get answers and justice,” a statement released through the family’s lawyer, John M. Phillips, reads after outlining some of the offenses that led to Bortlen’s bail being revoked,” they said in a statement.
“Please continue to pray for our family,” they added.These last couple years have been really difficult,” the statement continues. “Matters are worsened by the constant posts and promotions by the defendants as if this never happened and as if they aren’t involved. Evidence shows otherwise. We await justice.”
Melly has not been able to make bail and will remain locked up until the trial, which still doesn't have a date.
