UPDATED 10/23: corrected category of Peter Nelson
UPDATED 10/21: added Stevens' next hearing date
October 20, 2015
Below is a status update on all 15 defendants in the two indictments.
On October 17 around 7:45 am, David Johnson, the 80 year old defendant with stage 4 bladder cancer, was released from custody on his own recognizance. I did not attend the hearing regarding Johnson's release but I would not be surprised if it was a compassionate release by the court. I will update if I am able to get more information.
LA County Sheriff's website indicates defendant Jeff Stevens had a hearing today. Stevens originally was the first defendant to have a bail hearing on September 25, when his bail was reduced from $18.5 million to 10 million. However, checking the Sheriff's website, it indicates Stevens is now listed as "no bail," meaning, for some reason he lost bail. Stevens' next hearing date is October 28.
The next hearing date for the remaining defendants in and out of custody is November 3.
