16-year-old kidnapping suspect released on bond

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Rosalyn Holmes, a 16-year-old girl who’s been housed in Henning for 43 days while awaiting trial on aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery charges was released on Wednesday.

According to a release, her $60,000 bond was paid early Wednesday morning by Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights.

Holmes was one of two teens who were transferred to other facilities across the state after prosecutors decided to try them as adults. Currently, Shelby County does not have a facility to hold female offenders under 18 who are being tried as adults.

The other teen was arrested and charged with murder in the death of another teen last year. She was transferred to the women’s prison in Nashville and was placed in solitary confinement.
