BARTOW, Fla. (AP) Only one of the eight teens accused of participating in the videotaped beating of a classmate remained behind bars Sunday, after a seventh bonded out, authorities said.
Brittany Mayes, 17, was released on $33,000 bond, said Polk County Sheriff's Office spokesman Scott Wilder. Still jailed is Stephen Schumaker, 18.
The teens, the youngest of whom is 14, face kidnapping and misdemeanor battery charges for the violent beating, which has been viewed widely on national television and the Internet. The state attorney's office has said the six girls and two boys will be tried as adults.
One of the accused, 17-year-old Mercades Nichols, was bailed out by employees of the "Dr. Phil" television show over the weekend.
