Ross Goodman is representing Diaz and appeared in court on Tuesday, June 26 according to MMA Junkie, where the Clark County (Nevada) District Attorney’s office presented a two page criminal complaint against the MMA fighter.
An attempt was made by the DA’s office to get Diaz’s bail raised to $100,000 due to the severe nature of the alleged crime.
Judge Amy Chelini denied the request, stating that there is no reason to increase the bail already set against the UFC star due to his profession.
“I don’t care,” she said. “He’s going to be treated the same way everybody else is.”
Goodman also stated that the alleged victim in the case has made some glaring inconsistencies in her story about what Diaz allegedly done. The judge also agreed with that, but stated that those potential inaccuracies will have to be addressed during the trial.
The next time Diaz is set to be in court to deal with the alleged domestic violence incident is going to be on Tuesday, July 10.
