    Wow. Nice tie. Notice the sheriff eyeballing him as he stated his argument about media being allowed in court room. Might be prejudicial, people may form opinions about him being a bad guy! Also notice the fiancee there with the baby. Sympathy, perhaps?

    I am local to that case. I do not recall that he blacked out. He has just refused to discuss with LE but did talk to a cell mate about what he did.

    Waiving the hearing would waive this attorney getting more publicity.

    Well, he's not going to come up with $5million in cash. But, there were also conditions the judge stated. He has to meet those conditions to be released from jail. He won't come up with the money and he won't make those conditions.

    He's not going anywhere.

    And I wonder if they will need two court reporters - one native in Spanish for the trial transcript? that will be expensive for the state. The bond also carried restrictions beyond payment of the 5 million cash.

    Agreed. I used to translate for doctors at a clinic I worked at. Ocassionally we would get DOC inmates in, it was VERY uncomfortable. Once I went in to translate and there were 5 guards for 1 inmate. Made me wonder what he had done.

    I think, even if he makes bond, the moment his feet hit the ground, he is picked up on the ICE detainer and placed in a detention facility.

    (Thanks, it’s bugging me to death, there was another similar case where the defendant said he blacked out and I can’t seem to remember it for the life of me. )

    ETA: I’m looking at Diana’s case, and noticing the perp admitted to smoking meth. I wonder if this perp smokes meth as well?

    Failed strategy, as far as I'm concerned. Certainly more clownish than patriotic. Almost borderline insulting . . . moo, moo, moo!

    I just said this outloud to a colleague. Baez is probably too busy with his Miami cartel clients now for free work $$$

    I don't think I could support a loved one who led LE to a dead body - I just don't know if I could be in the courtroom.

    I don't see how any group, no matter what, would bail out and support a guy who admitted to murder. That's a bit much.

    But im also not sure how he's got such a good private atty. I doubt it will matter.

    He can’t meet the conditions for release, because of his immigration issues. Doesn’t matter if they do find $5mil cash.

    1. No one is going to post 5 million. As they say this guy doesn't have 2 pennies to rub together.
    2. That attorney is 'running' (he filed for a position) along without like 20 others for one vacancy. He has about as much chance as someone posting 5 million in bail.
