Crawford Released After Eight Hours

After spending about eight hours in an Omaha, Nebraska, jail, WBC/WBO super lightweight champion Terence Crawford was released when his attorney filed an appeal and posted $10,000 bond.

Last Saturday night, Crawford defeated John Molina Jr. in the main event of an HBO boxing telecast. Just days later, he found out he would be serving jail time for an incident at a local auto body shop. Judge Marcena Hendrix lectured the champion about "not being above the law" and sentenced him to 90 days in prison.

WBO President Paco Valcarcel has experience as a longtime criminal trial lawyer. He tweeted his displeasure of the judge’s ruling.
