Preliminary Hearing Trial Transcript
February 18, 2004 - page 33
1 THE COURT: I am doing this without prejudice to the
2 defense motion to reopen the preliminary hearing for that
3 purpose. I am not saying that we would grant it. I am
4 just saying I am not foreclosing that.
5 It appears to me from the evidence presented
6 that the evidence set forth in count 1 of the complaint
7 has been committed and there is sufficient cause to
8 believe the defendant is guilty thereof. I order the
9 defendant to be held to answer thereto.
10 I set arraignment on the information on March
11 3rd, 2004 in Department 2. Defendant is remanded - well,
12 no. The defendant will remain on bail.
13 MR. SASNETT: What he asked me to do is make a
14 request of the court to convert his custody status to O.R.
15 and request that bail be exonerated, if the Court please,
16 at this point. I didn't give Mr. Martinez or Mr. Adams
17 notice that I was going to make that. A friend of his
18 posted cash bail. If bail were exonerated that friend
19 would get his money back.
20 THE COURT: Any objection to that?
21 MR. ADAMS: No. We actually get to impose terms
22 under the O.R. It is easier to violate.
23 THE COURT: The bond will be exonerated.
24 The defendant will be released on his own
25 recognizance. He is ordered to return on March 3rd, 2004,
26 for arraignment.
27 And as a condition of O.R. you are not to
28 violate any law. You are not to cultivate any marijuana
