Brazil's Supreme Court ordered Edson Cholbi Nascimen's release pending his trial, which hasn't been scheduled yet, after his lawyers filed a petition late Friday. He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

A former professional soccer player known as Edinho, Nascimento was one of 50 people arrested on June 6 in a sting to dismantle a drug gang operating in and around the port of Santos, 80 kilometers (50 miles) east of Sao Paulo.
