Day Two of Detention Hearing for Alleged Abusers

JAMES STEWART AND TERI SANCHEZ, THE PARENTS ACCUSED OF PROSTITUTING THEIR SEVEN YEAR OLD DAUGHTER, ARE EXPECTED BACK IN COURT TUESDAY IN ALBUQUERQUE AT 1:00 PM. THERE WAS A DELAY IN TRANSPORTATION TO THE COURTHOUSE FOR THEIR DETENTION HEARING MONDAY THAT CAUSED WITNESS TESTIMONY TO CONTINUE UNTIL THE COURT’S CLOSING MONDAY.

THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE IS HOPING TO PROVE IT WOULD BE UNSAFE TO RELEASE STEWART AND SANCHEZ FROM JAIL BEFORE OR DURING THEIR TRIAL. THE DEFENSE SAYS THERE’S NO SAFETY ISSUE BECAUSE THE CHILDREN ARE NO LONGER IN THEIR CUSTODY.
