Mom of 555-pound teen freed

GREENVILLE, S.C. — A mother accused of neglecting her 555-pound son's health has been released on bond.


Television station WYFF reported today that Jerri Gray is no longer being held at the Greenville County jail. She was arrested on a charge of violating a custody order last month when she did not appear in court.

Police found Gray and her 14-year-old son at a laundry in a Baltimore suburb.

Since then, community members and businesses have stepped in to help the woman and her son.

WYFF reports that attorneys aren't charging Ms. Gray for legal work and a Greenville car dealer towed her van back from Baltimore.

Ms. Gray's attorneys, Kim and Grant Varner, could not be immediately reached for comment.
