COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A Columbus man who has been charged with aggravated assault for his actions just moments after his younger brother’s murder is no longer in the Muscogee County Jail.
According to release dockets, 18-year-old Jahiem Davis was released from the Muscogee County Jail on Thursday, Feb. 13 after being arrested one week earlier on Feb. 6.
Chris Breault, Davis’ defense attorney, says Davis’ family posted bond with funds raised through Gofundme. The crowdfunding page went up Wednesday, Feb. 12 and there was enough to release Davis on a $50,000 bond by Thursday, Feb. 13. Breault says there is a balance and the family will have to continue to make payments.
