Multiple reports indicate one of the two officers charged in the shooting death of a 6-year-old boy in Marksville will post a 1-million dollar bond and be released. 23-year-old Norris Greenhouse, Jr, will reportedly put property up to secure the bond. Legal analyst Tim Meche says it is not unusual for something like this to happen.
“Apparently, his family has enough property to satisfy the bond obligation. It is totally appropriate for him to be released on this type of bond.”
Meche says once Greenhouse is released, he will not be working as a city marshal and won’t be able to carry a firearm. He says if he is out on bond, his travel will be restricted.
“If he leaves the state, he’ll have to get permission from the court, which may be denied in a case like this, so he will be subject to normal restrictions.”
Meche says regardless of the crime, you have a constitutional right to be released on bond. He says as long as Greenhouse is present on his court date, everything is satisfied.
“I have a feeling this individual will show up for court and appear as he’s supposed it.”
