Jeremy Stephens UFC 91Jeremy Stephens will have his day in court to try and prove his innocence, but after 12-days behind bars he’s finally been released on bail.

The fighter’s management team at EVO Agents confirmed his release on Wednesday.

Stephens has spent the last 12-days in custody after being picked up on a 2011 assault charge from the state of Iowa while he was in Minnesota where he was scheduled to fight Yves Edwards on the UFC on FX 5 card.

UFC officials tried to get Stephens released on bail that night, but despite their best efforts he remained in custody, and was eventually extradited to Iowa.

Stephens has remained silent thus far during the entire ordeal, but his management team relayed a message from the fighter to the fans, as well as his plea of innocence of the charges levied against him.

“Jeremy felt it was very important to thank each and every one of those who have stood by his side during this tough time. He wanted everyone to know that despite the negative situation that he’s been placed in, he has remained upbeat and positive, reflecting on the opportunities that have been and will be presented to him, reflecting on his family, and his firm believe in his innocence,” the statement said.

“Jeremy’s legal team is already hard at work to prove what many already know; he is not guilty of the crimes he’s been accused of.”

Stephens will now head back into training as he awaits his day in court to face the charges.
