Joseph Robert Patterson


In this photo taken on Monday, Oct. 28, 2013, Joseph Robert Patterson, who is accused of causing the fatal injuries to Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson's 2-year-old son, Tyrese Robert Ruffin, leaves the Lincoln County Courthouse in Canton, S.D. The Minnehaha County Jail in Sioux Falls says Patterson is no longer housed there. His attorney, Tim Rensch, confirmed Patterson's release and says there are no conditions on it, but Patterson plans to stay in the area and defend himself. Patterson's bond was reduced to $750,000 on Monday, so he had to post $75,000. (AP Photo/The Argus Leader, Joe Ahlquist )
