Judge Denies Bail for Bruce Beresford-Redman

by at . Comments

Bruce Beresford-Redman may never be a free man again.

The former TV producer and suspected murderer has been denied bail by Los Angeles District Court Judge Susan Segal, who said in court today "I do not believe he can be awarded with bail for the allegations which he has been alleged... Mr. Redman presents a risk of flight.”

Beresford-Redman was taken into custody on November 16 and charged with the brutal killing of wife Monica Beresford-Redman. Her body was found in a Cancun sewer on April 8.

Bruce's parents were present in court this afternoon to show support for their son, who arrived in handcuffs and often smiled back at his relatives throughout the hearing.


Its bad business to prosecute this high profile individual in Mexico....since the relatives are applying great pressure for Mexico to put this man away....regardless of the immature style of prosecution that we see in the USA makes no difference. What we want is to see the person responsible behind bars. Shrewd lawyers are setting criminals free everyday in the US, they call that justice?


There are no trials in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. No open court, no cross-examination of witnesses, no "Perry Mason" stuff. A judge will reach a verdict based upon written depositions in the case folder, and what goes into it and what goes out of it is anyone's guess. If sent to prison (anywhere from thirteen years to thirty years) he can be transferred to a U.S. federal prison under the prisoner exchange treaty if he so requests. With his money he'd fare much better in a Mexican prison.


Under the laws of the state of Quintana Roo, Redman faces a possible sentence of anywhere from thirteen years to thirty years. There are no life sentences in Mexico.
