Wander Franco leaves jail after posting $35,000 bond, three days after judge ordered MLB star’s conditional release amid probe into alleged inappropriate relationship with a minor

Wander Franco has reportedly been released from prison on bail in the Dominican Republic after posting around $35,000.

The Tampa Bay Rays star, 22, is accused of engaging in an inappropriate relationship with a minor.

Last Friday, a judge in the Dominican Republic, ordered his conditional release while the probe continues.

Franco faces allegations that he had a brief relationship with the then-14-year-old girl and gave her mother thousands of dollars and a car in exchange for her consent. 

The 22-year-old, who denies the allegations, is accused of commercial sexual exploitation and money laundering, with the alleged victim’s mother facing the same charges. 

Franco was arrested last week after missing a meeting with the prosecutor investigating the case. 

The MLB star was transported to the Puerto Plata courthouse Friday morning, arriving in handcuffs and escorted by police.
