Camacho Sr. released from jail; faces additional charges

According to Sports Illustrated, former multi-weight class champion Hector "Macho" Camacho, Sr. has been released from jail on his own recognizance and sentenced to time served after five months.  After entering a guilty plea for a burglary charge, the troubled Camacho now awaits a November 5th trial on drug charges. The burglary incident received publicity after Camacho allegedly urinated on a computer inside the store he was allegedly robbing. Camacho was accused of stealing seven laptops and more than $5,000.  Camacho's full sentence was 7 years.  If the drug charges are considered a violation of probation he might have to serve the entire sentence.
