One of the four suspects accused of killing XXXTentacion is hoping a judge will free him from prison.

Dedrick Williams is the latest suspect to request what is known as an Authur Hearing, in an attempt to be released.

Since Williams is charged with capital murder, he is being held without bail. But with an Authur Hearing, Williams has one last option to regain his freedom.

During an Authur Hearing, prosecutors have to present overwhelming evidence to keep a suspect held without bond. In what is essentially a mini-trial, prosecutors must establish the suspect’s guilt.
