The UC Officer who was indicted for murder after shooting and killing an unarmed Sam Dubose has posted his $1 million bond, having been released from jail.
According to Hamilton County Clerk of Courts website, Ray Tensing posted 10% of his bail, and left the facilities around 6:45 PM this evening.
Maj. Charmaine McGuffey, of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department, said Tensing left the jail at about 6:45 p.m. He’d been under suicide watch during his time behind bars, she said.
People from all over the country offered to help pay the $1 million bond, Tensing’s attorney said Thursday.
His attorney Stew Mathews said:
“Ever since the bond was set, I’ve received calls from around the country from people wanting to contribute to it,” attorney Stew Mathews said. “I think people feel like he’s getting railroaded here in Cincinnati. You’d have to be blind not to see that.”
Earlier today, the officer pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the killing of 43-year-old Sam Dubose, after his actions were displayed via his uniform’s body camera.
His attorney also mentioned that Tensing is “not doing well” and “feels terrible about” the shooting.
