NEW CANAAN, Conn. – Fotis pleaded not guilty, F.Dulos, Jennifer Dulos’ ex-husband, Tuesday to the disappearance of his wife and is expected to leave a Connecticut courthouse with a GPS ankle monitor after spending more than a week behind the bars at the Bridgeport Correctional Center.
Fotis Dulos’ lawyer, Norm Pattis, argued that his client’s $ 500,000 bail should be reduced to $ 100,000 and said that the state’s case against his client was weak and he doubted his client would be charged with murder.
The state attorney, Richard Colangelo, argued in a brief hearing that Fotis Dulos’ DNA was found mixed with his wife’s blood on a tap in the kitchen of his New Canaan home and that the bond should be kept at $ 500,000, what it was.
Pattis said his client will post bail on Tuesday using his retirement fund as collateral.
Dressed in gray, Fotis Dulos’ girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, also pleaded not guilty before Judge John Blawie for obstructing the processing and manipulation of evidence. Your next court date is July 18. His is August 2.
After the brief hearing, his lawyer Andrew Bowman criticized the media for what he called “unfair and inaccurate” reports and said his client is innocent.
Earlier, the lawyer representing Dulos told there are “powerful reasons” to doubt that his client was in his New Canaan home the day he disappeared.
Lawyer Norm Pattis says there is no evidence that Dulos has been involved in a dirty game and says he plans to request a “substantial bonus reduction” when his client appears before a judge in Stamford on Tuesday morning.
