White's public defender said his client gave birth by C-section two months ago and requested she be released. The judge said given White and Cherry's lesser criminal history he would set their bail at $5,000 and require both stay at least 150 yards away from the Louis Vuitton store on Geary.

No bail has been set for Miller and Speed and Calloway will remain detained until his conditions will be determined at a court appearance next week.
