MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Latwana Daniels, a former TSA agent accused of armed cocaine trafficking, will be released on a $100,000 bond and will await her trial date while on house arrest, a judge ruled Wednesday.

Her attorney, Andrew Rier, spoke passionately following a two-hour long hearing to determine if the funds used to post her bond will be coming from legitimate sources.

“She has four children, one of them has leukemia,” Rier told the judge. “Now, she has to fight the DCF case.”

The state had argued that the legitimacy of funds, which came from close friends and family, were not completely transparent and could have come from drug proceeds.

Ultimately, Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Rodney Smith agreed with the defense as having met their burden of proof which would allow Daniels to bond out.

As of Wednesday evening she was still in jail.
