The UFC star had been told that he would have to wear a GPS monitor at all times during the lead up to the trial. However, a change has happened because while appearing at a bond hearing this past Tuesday, it was determined that the fighter could remove the GPS according to Bloody Elbow.
Judge Timmie White did say that Alhassan can remove the GPS monitor, but that privilege came with a stern warning.
“I don’t see any reason for me to stop him from making his living,“ White said. “If he so much as sneezes during the wrong time or tried to contact his alleged victims, he would be sent to jail).”
Heidi McCusker is Alhassan’s bond supervisor and she also testified that the fighter has yet to give any reason for mistrust in their time together.
A mother of one of the two alleged victims also spoke up, obviously not very pleased about the judge’s ruling.
“These monitoring devices are intended to supervise the conduct of a person who has broken the law ... and to reduce any incentive they may have to violate the conditions of their release or to commit any new crime,” she said. “Releasing the device has made the victims and their families not feel safe. Our law system is to adhere to protect and serve.”
It should be noted that Alhassan is innocent of all charges until proven guilty.
