According to a Facebook post from the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, Collison was released from jail at 9 AM Monday morning on $55,000 bail. The female victim, who will not be named because she is a victim of domestic violence, had visible injuries upon the arrival of deputies.
The 28-year-old Collison is set to return to court in July. If found guilty, he faces two to four years in a state prison, a maximum of one year in a county jail, a $6,000 fine, or a combination of both.
