Man Free On Multiple Bonds Is Arrested For Murder & Is Freed Again On Bond


On Saturday night Jerome Cormier was shot outside his home in east Harris County in front of his 12-year-old daughter.

Marquice Wear, 21, has been charged with Cormier's murder.

At the time of the shooting, Wear free on two felony bonds.

Despite the fact that he was free on two felony bonds, a magistrate not only allowed Wear to bond out for the murder charge, it was set at just $150,000.

He was freed from jail on Tuesday.

Prosecutors had filed a motion to hold Wear without bond because of his pending cases including accusations of stealing catalytic converters and a separate charge of evading arrest.

Fox 26’s Randy Wallace reports:

“...a Magistrate for Judge Hillary Unger’s court set his bond for murder at $150,000.
Court records state Wear is unemployed and gets $700 a month in SSI. Still, he was back out on the street within a day of being charged with murder.
"If you can afford a bond, why are taxpayers paying for your attorney," Kahan said. "It doesn’t make zero sense."
