Here are the details of Walter Wells release
by Marty Carlson
There was an afternoon session that started about 1:40 PM and basically it was a repetition of the morning session talking about Jason Armstrong and others in the information received concerning Mariposa County and the gravesite in the campgrounds.
But I’m not going to that now there’s something I think you’re more interested in and that is the release of Walter Wells here are the details:
The DA has agreed to drop the homicide charge against Walter, as the DA agreed there’s not enough evidence for a hold order on that charge.
Walter still faces an obstruction of justice and accessory charge.
The judge did say that Walter is attorney does directly deal with her evaluation and how she feels the status of the case, but is not totally exhausted against him.
As she reviewed some of the bail schedules for Stanislaus County she set the bail at $50,000 for both charges, and he is to surrender his passport and not leave the county without permission. In addition his order not to have any contact with any of the witnesses in this case excluding the immediate family members.
Tim Rein did make a statement to the court saying that the remaining charges against Walter are both wobbler’s and he would be facing minimal time if convicted in a trial. That would leave him in a credit for time served status, and he is not a risk to flee the jurisdiction of the court.
He is to return to court on the 19th of this month for updates and to surrender his passport to the court.
That is the extent that the judge orated in court there was no discussion or argument made by the District Attorney’s Office.
Needless to say there was an extremely excited family outside the courtroom and mom advised that his favorite beer is fully stocked in the refrigerator right now waiting for him.
Time to party…….
