Michael J. Kelly, 24, Spokane, was allowed release from jail Friday after he read his plan for finding a job in court. Kelly has been in jail for 17 days after he was arrested for failing to make payments in connection with his a 2015 conviction for delivery of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Kelly had been ordered by Judge Gary Libey to make a report on how he would get a job to earn funds and pay off court fines and fees and remain gainfully employed.

Kelly was sentenced to 20 months in prison in October of 2015 for delivery of meth and unlawful possession of a firearm. He received the long sentence because four prior convictions advanced his offender score to five for the Whitman County conviction.

Friday morning in court, Kelly listed classified ads and other sources where he could look for a job. He said he has a bicycle which he plans to ride to check out job prospects and eventually plans to purchase a bus pass.

Among possible employers, Kelly noted a UPS training program and Waste Management.

Court Commissioner Howard Neill ruled Kelly had met Judge Libey's requirement and allowed his release. Kelly was ordered to return to court July 20 and report on the outcome of his job hunt.
