Prosecutor appeals release of kickboxer Dennis Alexio


A federal judge ordered the release Tuesday of former world kickboxing champion Dennis Alexio pending trial on theft of public money, tax fraud, money laundering and other charges. Alexio, however, remains in custody while the prosecutor appeals the order.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Richard L. Puglisi ordered Alexio, 54, released on an unsecured $25,000 signature bond.

He also stayed his order to allow prosecutor Marshall Silverberg to appeal the release.

Silverberg took the appeal to U.S. District Judge Michael Seabright three hours later.

Seabright continued the hearing to Monday because he said he wasn’t able to listen to the recording of the earlier bail hearing and because he wants the court’s pretrial services to interview Alexio and issue a report.
