LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Boxer Jermain Taylor has been released from jail after a judge set bail and gave him permission to travel to Florida for a training camp.

Taylor had been jailed pending the results of a mental evaluation. Taylor faces charges in three cases, including one accusing him of shooting and wounding his cousin last year. He has pleaded not guilty in all three.

On Monday morning, Pulaski County Circuit Judge Leon Johnson found Taylor mentally fit to stand trial. Johnson set bail for Taylor at $25,000. The former middleweight champion was released from jail later in the day.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1LrZvaM ) that Johnson ordered that Taylor be drug-tested weekly while at the training camp. A jury trial has been set for early December.
