Haitian migrant accused of raping teen girl in Boston freed on $500 bail, despite fed request to hold him - report | 28 June 2024 | A Haitian migrant accused of raping a 15-year-old at a Massachusetts shelter has been released on bail -- despite a request from federal immigration officials to hold him. Cory Alvarez, who had been held without bail since his March arrest, was freed on a measly $500 bail on Tuesday after the Plymouth County Superior Court ignored a request from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to keep the suspect in custody, the Boston Herald reported. Prosecutors also had requested $25,000 bail had the court opted not to order continued pretrial detention, according to the Boston Globe. Alvarez's release also comes after a pre-trial motion filed by Plymouth County DA Tim Cruz to keep him in jail was denied, the Herald added.
