Jennifer White was released from jail Tuesday night over a month after a grand jury decided not to indict her on fraud charges.

White’s attorney said had she received the needed paperwork from the Clerk of Court's office White could have posted bond weeks ago.

Her attorney, Valerie L'Herrou said it was August 20, 2007 when the grand jury decided not to indict White.

However, it wasn't until September 21, 2007 when she received paperwork needed to get White out of jail.

Paul Garrett the Clerk of Court said he provided the information to White's attorney’s office during a phone conversation shortly after they asked.

“I actually made the call and indicated that not a true bill was returned on this particular person. So we informed them at that time and that was in response to a letter that we got that we received that we responded and indicated that not a true bill on this particular person,” said Garrett.

Garrett added his office can not issue a release with out the permission from the judge to do so and that word did not come until Tuesday.
