Man Charged With Peterson's Son's Death Is Free
Joseph Patterson | October 22, 2013

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The man charged with killing the 2-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has bonded out of a South Dakota jail.

The Minnehaha County Jail in Sioux Falls says 27-year-old Joseph Robert 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 and he posted the entire bond Tuesday.

He's charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault and aggravated battery in the death of Tyrese Robert Ruffin.

Patterson is the boyfriend of Tyrese's mother.

Peterson had just recently found out that Tyrese was his son.

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
The story was corrected to reflect that Patterson posted the entire $750,000 instead of ten percent as previously reported.
