Mark Torre, Jr. bail reduced to $10K
From $165,000 down to $10,000. That's the new bail condition handed to Mark Torre Jr. accused of killing a fellow police officer.
The former Guam Police Department officer had his release conditions modified by the court after his attorney, Jay Arriola filed a motion requesting him to be released on a $5,000 personal recognizance in the second round of the case.
Two months ago the supreme court vacated the convictions. Since his arrest four years ago, Torre has been on house arrest.
Judge Michael Bordallo granted the request and vacated the $165,000 bail allowing a property title to be returned.
However, Torre is to remain on house arrest. A trial setting date was set for Oct. 24.
In 2017, Torre was found guilty of negligent homicide and aggravate assault for the 2015 shooting death of fellow police officer Sgt. Elbert Piolo.
