Los Angeles, CA—The Associated Press reported this afternoon that a District Court Judge overruled a U.S. Magistrate by reversing the order that James Fayed be released on $500,000.00 bail.
According to the AP the judge ruled Fayed a flight risk and ordered him held without bond.
This is a big victory for the LAPD enabling them to complete their investigation and continue with the analysis of evidence without worrying about their prime suspect fleeing the jurisdiction.
Of course Fayed may appeal the Judge’s order and once again be allowed to post bond and be released until trial on that single federal charge.
