Jeffrey Bruner, who has been charged by Joplin Police Department in the Nov. 1 shooting of Missouri Southern Offensive Line Coach Derek Moore, has now been released from the Jasper County Jail.

Sergeant Patrick with the Warrants Division of the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that at approximately 11 a.m. this morning, Bruner’s bond was posted and he was released from custody.

According to the Jasper County Circuit Clerk’s Office, the terms of Bruner’s release, which were originally drafted on May 5 after Circuit Judge Gayle Crane approved his request for a code bond, state:

1.) He is to be placed on electronic monitoring

2.) He is to live with his parents in Greene County, Missouri

3.) He is not allowed to step foot on the MSSU campus

4.) He is not allowed to enter Jasper County without the court’s approval, absent a court date

5.) He is to have no contact with his ex-wife or her family

6.) He is to have no contact with the family of Moore

7.) He is not allowed to leave Greene County except for court appearances or to meet with his attorney and must be accompanied by at least one of his parents during all travel.

8.) He is not allowed to possess a firearm.

9.) He is not allowed to travel outside of his home without the presence of at least one of his parents.

Bruner’s release comes just days after many local news outlets mistakenly reported that Bruner had already been released following his May 5 hearing.

Bruner remains behind bars, despite local news reports

The Warrants Division of the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that Jeffrey Bruner, the man accused of the Nov. 1, 2013, shooting death of Lions football coach Derek Moore, still remains in jail at this time — despite earlier local news reports that he had posted this bond and been released.

The confusion surrounding Bruner’s current status came after Circuit Judge Gayle Crane approved a code bond for Bruner on May 5 during a hearing.

According to the Jasper County Clerk’s Office, if the new code bond is posted, Bruner would be released from the custody of the Jasper County Jail as long as he met the following conditions:

1.) He would be placed on electronic monitoring

2.) He would live with his parents in Greene County, Missouri

3.) He would not be allowed to step foot on the MSSU campus

4.) He would not to be allowed to enter Jasper County without the court’s approval, absent a court date

5.) He would have no contact with his ex-wife or her family

6.) He would have no contact with the family of Coach Moore

7.) He would not be allowed to leave Greene County except for court appearances or to meet with his attorney and must be accompanied by his parents during all travel.

After the conditions for the code bond were established, Bruner was mistakenly reported to have been all ready released from the Jasper County Jail on May 5 by area news outlets such as KOAM and News/Talk KZRG, with these conditions going into effect.

On May 6, the Court added an eighth bond condition, stating that Bruner would not be allowed to possess a firearm. The Court also amended the seventh bond condition to read that he must be accompanied by at least one parent during all travel if released.

A ninth bond condition was added by the Court on May 7, stating that Bruner also would not be allowed to travel outside of his home without the presence of at least one of his parents.

Pre-trial motions have been scheduled for August 4.
