BREAKING NEWS via Witness LA: Alex Sanchez Granted Bail!
Around 11:30, at the end of the closed hearing that began at 10 a.m. Alex Sanchez attorney Kerry Bensinger came out of the courtroom to talk to Sanchez family and a very, very small handful of supporters, whom he drew into a side room and broke the news. There were many tears.
Bail is set at $2 million. It is to be divided into $1 million in properties, $1 million in surities.
Since Sanchez supporters have already gathered $1.4 million in property, and $1 million in surities, “it’s only a matter of the paperwork,” said Monica Novoa, a Homies Unidos board member who is very close to the family and thus was in the room.

That’s all we ever asked for.” [Read more here.]
