The Stamford Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2ChjrLS) that 22-year-old Taquan McCrae was released by a judge last week at the request of the prosecution.
McCrae had been detained on $100,000 bond since May following his arrest after another man was stabbed twice during a fight at Brother Jimmy’s BBQ. He was facing a first-degree assault charge and faced 20 years in prison if convicted.
Prosecutors say he was found with a knife that had the victim’s blood on it.
But the victim says McCrae is a friend with whom he went to the bar, and that McCrae helped him after the stabbing.
