A: It depends on where this information was obtained, but see below:

Charge sequence: this is what count the charge is (basically is count 1 of a 1 charge case. Meaning there aren't multiple charges).

Bond Amount: $0 means that there was no cash bond issued (the defendant did not have to post money to get out).

Offense Type: Felony (the charge is a felony level crime).

Charge Type: State - this most likely means that the State Attorney filed a formal Information on the charge. An Information is just the formal way for the prosecutor to bring charges.

Disposition: That is the status of the case. Released in this context probably means that this person was let out due to coronavirus (not that they have it, but the State is releasing folks to get them out of the jails).

Charge Description: This is what kind of charge the defendant is facing. They probably stole something off of someone's porch or carport valued at less than 750.00.

Bond Note: N/A it doesn't appear there are any special conditions noted.

My guess is that the person is either released or going to be. You can look at the county jail website to see if they have any inmate information. You can probably call the jail too for that information. Hope this helps.
