Arenas' bond remains at $1 million for shooting
Placeholder Image
One million dollars stands between Gregorio Arenas and freedom as the court refused to lower his bond pending sentencing next month for his actions surrounding the shooting death of Albertano Guerro Trejo.Even if Arenas, 29, were able to raise the $1 million to spring himself from jail until his Oct. 9 sentencing date, he would not be allowed to go far as immigration officials have placed a hold on him. The hold means he will be taken into federal custody once he steps foot outside Warren County Jail, possibly to be deported back to his native Mexico given his questionable immigration status.Arenas will likely be released on time served when he appears before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley next month for sentencing. He was convicted on lesser charges of aggravated assault, coercion of a witness, and reckless endangerment, the jury verdict leaving prosecutors scratching their heads.
