"Morales has since been released." -- I'd really like to know what "released" means here and who ordered it. They can't have just turned him loose to blow out of here after arresting him on ten(!) serious warrants.

" ....six warrants charging him with violation of probation in human smuggling cases, as well as four warrants....".

"And he has since been released".
