Back on the streets: Ace Mohr released on his own recognizance
According to online Jasper County Circuit Court records, Mohr was released today on his own recognizance, three days after Judge David Mouton approved a bond reduction despite the objections of the Jasper County Prosecuting Attorney's office.
In his bond reduction motion, Mohr's attorney, Jonathan Pierce, offered only one argument- "The defendant desires to seek treatment."
Mouton stipulated that Mohr has to attend "The Road," a substance abuse program and must enroll by June 22.
This marks the second time Mohr has been released after promising to enter drug rehabilitation.
Mohr, who is awaiting trial on multiple felony charges, had his bond revoked May 1 after he failed to appear for a bond revocation hearing, which was scheduled after the Carthage Police Department arrested him March 12 for driving under the influence of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Felonies with which Mohr is awaiting trial include possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, distribution of heroin, possession of alprazolam with intent to distribute, receiving stolen property, two counts of possession of methamphetamine, possession of Dilaudid 5, and possession of methadone.
Mohr has also been arrested for armed robbery three times. On two of the occasions, both in Carthage, former Jasper County Prosecuting Attorney Dean Dankelson dropped the charges. In the third case, a reported armed robbery at 7th and Moffet in Joplin in August, Dankelson's office never filed charges.
