Attorney Manny Medrano Expected To Take Over Legal Reigns For Noguez
By Randy Economy and Brian Hews
Jailed Los Angeles County Assessor John R. Noguez will remain behind bars until at least February 1 after a complex court room hearing took place on Tuesday in Downtown Los Angeles.
Noguez, who is facing dozens of felony bribery and forgery charges was expected to post a $1.16 million bond according to members of his legal defense team, but Prosecutors with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office demanded that additional time be granted in order to determine if those who have contributed to his bail fund are not involved in the legal case as possible future defendants.
Los Cerritos Community Newspaper has also learned that well-known attorney Manny Medrano, a former television news reporter and anchor, may become Noguez’s future legal Counsel.
Medrano, in an interview with LCCN on Tuesday confirmed that he has met with Noguez on several occasions since his arrest more than three months ago. “I am not his Legal Counsel of Record, but that could change very quickly,” Medrano said.
Medrano attended Tuesday’s hearings.
Co-Defendants Ramin Salari and Mark McNeil were also in court with their individuals attorneys on Tuesday.
Noguez will be back in court on February 1, 2013.
Los Cerritos Community Newspaper will have additional details as they develop.
