Joel Michael Herrin, the Kittredge man accused of kidnap and sexual assault, is asking that a date be set for a preliminary hearing and that his $500,000 bond be reduced.
Robert Bernhardt, a private attorney in Golden, made the requests in County Judge Thomas Vance’s courtroom Jan. 6. Vance agreed to set a hearing on the matter for Jan. 19.
When contacted by phone on Monday, Jan. 11, Bernhardt declined to comment on the matter.
“We are very early in the litigation process, and anything we choose to say will be said in court,” Bernhardt said.
