This photo shows Jimmy Brian Blackmon, 50, at the time of his booking at the Polk County Jail on murder charges on October 26, 2020.

A man accused of the murder of his wife is now out on bond in Polk County following the Thursday afternoon decision by Tallapoosa Circuit Superior Court Judge Meng Lim.

Well Done Bonding was able to put up the necessary surety and the family came up with $30,000 and the required fees to cover getting Jimmy Brian Blackmon, charged with the murder of his wife Ginger last October, out of jail on bond, per officials from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

He was released from the facility not long after the lunch hour.

Blackmon also faces felony charges for gun possession, influencing a witness and cruelty to children in the third degree in the case. He was on the run from law enforcement for eight days before he was apprehended at his father’s property in Carroll County.

His full bond was reset for a third time at $300,000 following a hearing earlier in the week where Blackmon’s attorney sought one of the final recourses they had to get the accused murder suspect out of jail. They had previously tried to combine properties to cover a $500,000 bond, then use a transfer bond from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office to cover a $100,000 property bond.

Conditions of Blackmon’s bond include the use and payment of ankle monitoring service, house arrest and no contact with a list of people.
