However, at a court hearing on June 8. The holder agreed to set his bail on $ 500,000 in cash or $ 10 million in bonds, despite announcing his reservation.
"I believe there may be a risk of flying with your client," the judge told Horn at a hearing. "Given the circumstances involved in this case, the seriousness of this case, and the strength of the case, I believe it is possible.
" But I am bail in the following way: "Set," added the holder. "Cash bail of $ 500,000. Cash, not bonds. Cash, guaranteed bonds of $ 10 million."
Early in the hearing on June 8, counsel Michael Horn said Hirsch. The judge said he could raise $ 500,000 "if all the assets were scraped together."
Horn admitted that Hirsch was in conflict with the restaurant, but denied that it had nothing to do with Yang's shooting.
"We believe the wrong man was arrested," Horn said outside the court on Monday.
"I'm happy with the way the court did this because it's a compromise between personal rights and public security," he said. "I think the judge admitted that this was a circumstantial case and we still don't really know what happened."
