IBERIA PARISH, La. (KLFY) The woman arrested for her involvement in the death of 15-year-old Quawan “Bobby” Charles’ death may be released from jail as soon as Wednesday.
This comes after a judge lowered Janet Irvin’s bond by over $300,000.
Charles’ body was found in November, three days after his parents reported him missing.
His body was found in a sugarcane behind the home of the Irvin’s, the family that picked Charles up the day he went missing and the last people to see Charles alive.
Officials say Charles drowned.
Five months after his body was found, Janet Irvin was arrested and charged with of failure to report a missing child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Reports say Irvin had supplied Charles with drugs the night he allegedly left their home, drugs that may have contributed to his death.
After sitting in jail for two months, Janet Irvin made her first court appearance for those charges Tuesday.
The judge reduced Irvin’s $400,000 bond to $90,000.
This lowered bond came with restrictions Irvin must follow, though, when she is released.
The judge said Irvin could not bond out until she has a monitoring bracelet put on.
Once she bonds out with the monitor, the judge says she will live at her boyfriends’ house in Youngsville.
She cannot leave the home unless it’s for court, work, or medical purposes.
As of Tuesday evening, Irwin had not bonded out of jail.
