Vicky Momberg was released on R2 000 bail on 2 August by the Randburg Magistrate's Court.

Momberg was convicted of racism and handed a 3-year sentence, with 1 year suspended and ordered to pay R100 000 to the policeman she verbally abused, as reported on by Briefly.co.za.

Since Momberg is due for parole the state chose to not oppose bail for the former estate agent.

Momberg was convicted and sentenced by the South Gauteng High Court and applied for bail after she was given leave to appeal.
