Bond lowered for man arrested for helping Markquise Wallace 'avoid capture'
PENSACOLA, Fla. (WEAR) —
Bond has been lowered for an Escambia County man arrested, police said, for helping Markquise Wallace avoid capture.
Ali Freeman appeared in video court before Jennifer Frydrychowicz on Friday.
Freeman’s defense attorney argued the $250,000 bond did not fix the crime. Judge Frydrychowicz lowered the bond to $100,000.
On June 6, Wallace drove a rented White Dodge Challenger into three people walking across M Street and Cervantes in Pensacola, reports state.
Two people were killed and another was critically injured.
According to Pensacola Police Department (PPD), Freeman helped Wallace hide the White Dodge Challenger by helping him purchase a cargo trailer to conceal the car while it was being transported.
A report states Freeman told police that Wallace wanted to buy a vehicle and needed help moving it with a trailer.
According to PPD, “Wallace also told Freeman that he [Wallace] was the person who struck the people at M and Cervantes Street” Pensacola Police stated.
Freeman is charged with accessory after the fact for a first degree felony which is a second degree charge.
His next court date is August 10 where he will be arraigned.
Markquise Wallace remains a fugitive. He is believed to be out of the state of Florida.
