Judge Denies Mychal Bell Immediate Bail

21 09 2007

Judge J.P. Mauffray Jr. denied Mychal Bell’s request to be freed while his appeal is being reviewed, according to the Associated Press. Local prosecutors are appealing the Louisiana Circuit Court decision to have Bell tried in juvenile court instead of adult court.

Judge Mauffray Jr. is also the same judge who set Bell’s bail at $90,000.

Bell’s attorney’s request to have Judge Mauffray Jr. removed from the case for setting bail so high was also denied.
