Former kick-boxing champ Alexio must remain in jail, for now

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:40 p.m. HST, Dec 02, 2013

A federal judge in Honolulu ordered former world kick-boxing champion Dennis Alexio this morning to remain in federal custody in his theft, tax fraud and money laundering case until he can be placed at a halfway house.

U.S. District Judge Michael Seabright overruled a decision by a federal magistrate judge last week allowing Alexio to be released on an unsecured $24,000 signature bond. Federal prosecutors appealed the magistrate judge's ruling.

Seabright said he was concerned that Alexio poses a flight risk.  

Alexander Silvert, first assistant federal public defender, said he did not know when space will be available at the Mahoney Hale halfway house.

Alexio is being held at the Federal Detention Center. His trial is scheduled for Jan. 22.

More B.S. the federal government has conjured up to "legally" take away our rights to be free. Alexio is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty...yet, he's being treated as a guilty convict. Bureaucratic loopholes are being found to take away his freedom. This is what our America has become -- another fascist country whose people are held hostage by the government.
