“American Idol” finalist Caleb Kennedy is getting sprung from jail, but he won’t be free, as he awaits his fate in his deadly DUI case.
The singer has been locked up in South Carolina since February after he was arrested for felony DUI resulting in death. Cops say Kennedy drove his 2011 Ford pickup truck up someone’s driveway, plowing through their garage and killing a man inside.
17-year-old Kennedy had previously been denied bond, but his attorney, Ryan Beasley, tells us he was granted bond at $50k Friday — and will be held in home detention until his trial.
Beasley tells us Caleb is in good spirits, and hoping to have his day in court where he can prove the DUI was just a tragic accident caused by medication. He’s expected to be released sometime today.
Caleb was one of 5 finalists on ‘Idol’ in 2020, but left the show after a video surfaced showing him seated next to someone wearing a Ku Klux Klan-like hood.
