One of the teens that took part in the murder of a beloved bartender will not face more time for another alleged crime. 

Enrique Palomino was awaiting release from the juvenile lockup for the murder of Steven Gerecke in his driveway during a robbery spree, when he allegedly attacked another inmate. 

Prosecutors asked that his probation be revoked and he be kept behind bars, but they say the victim has refused to help them, so the battery charge Palomino was facing has been dismissed. 

Online court records show Palomino was released from MDC on Tuesday.
