Beresford-Redman To Remain Jailed Without Bail

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A former “Survivor” producer accused of killing his wife while they were vacationing in Cancun will remain jailed without bail as extradition proceedings move forward, even though an attorney for Bruce Beresford-Redman is calling his client’s arrest in Los Angeles unconstitutional.

Former “Survivor” producer Bruce Beresford-Redman has been jailed since Nov. 16, when federal agents arrested him on a fugitive warrant.

He had been sought in Mexico after his wife was killed at a swank Cancun resort during an April vacation.

Defense attorney Richard Hirsch argued in a court filing Monday that prosecutors did not submit evidence to support the warrant for Beresford-Redman.

Prosecutors say Beresford-Redman is a flight risk.

    In what world is this lawyer living? His client was a person of interest in the death of his wife, in Mexico. The Mexican police ordered him to turn over his passport (whichhe did), and the American Consulate guaranteed that he would remain in their oversite. Next thing we know he has fled the country and came home. Now our officials have the extradition order from Mexico and we are obligated to follow through and work to return him to Mexico. By fleeing Mexico to begin with he has shown that he is a risk to flee the USA too.

    Leave to loser in jail, that’s where he belongs. Better yet, hand him over to Mexico, they will deal with him.

    His lawyer is only doing his job. He raises a fair question, one a US judge must consider.

    Article 3, US-Mexico Extradition Treaty (1980), in part: “Extradition shall be granted only if the evidence be found sufficient, according to the laws of the requested Party [that is, the United States]… to justify the committal for trial of the person sought if the offense of which he has been accused had been committed in that place…”

    The government of Mexico is obliged to present evidence that would be sufficient to indict Beresford-Redman for murder in this country. If they have not done so, they cannot have him.

    Boy has he got some rough times coming.

    This shows the consequences of the unconstitutional Patriot Act, no more habeas corpus. Set bail with the flight risk taken into account. We cannot label him as a murderer, that is the point of the court system and not a singular judge. I give some credit to the United States government for showing restraint in not labelling him as a, “suspected terrorist,” which automatically would trigger grounds for the retention indefinitely and without the need for a trial anytime soon. I am curious if the judge is a republican- or democratic-appointee.

    you’ve been caught….may you rot in prison and then burn in hell you coward.

    Remember, the Mexicans will refuse to send back a cop killer if he is looking at Capital Punishment. They should have to dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s before they get this guy.

    For dean, who asked, Judge Suzanne Segal is a Magistrate Judge; Magistrate Judges, who used to be called Commissioners, are appointed by the local District Judges. The Central District of California is pretty evenly divided: 17 of those judges were appointed by Democrats; 18 were appointed by Republicans. This may be the first notorious case she has been asked to handle.
