Cain Velasquez is in a huge predicament ever since he decided to take law into his own hands and play vigilante after a minor relative was molested by a member of the family that ran his kinder garden.
Velasquez remains jailed for months now and has just been denied bail for the third time.
Velasquez’ high powered attorney Mark Geragos appeared in the Santa Clara County Hall of Justice late yesterday according to sources.
“In order to challenge the court’s ruling to potentially overturn the previous bail denials, the defense needed to provide Judge Brown with a change of circumstance. Geragos argued that intent by Harry Goularte, Patricia Goularte and Paul Bender to not testify in a civil lawsuit should be seen as a change of circumstance in the criminal case against Velasquez, who is facing a 20 years-to-life sentence in prison for attempted murder.”
Geragos unsuccessfully argued that Velasquez was willing to post a $1 million bond and accept all requirements of the court in order to be back home with the family.
The judge ultimately stuck to her previous decision and exclaimed that testimony is irrelevant to the risk Velasquez possesses.
