Clifford Safranski, representing Bryon Baker, said the Public Defender’s Office had not received any files or petitions regarding Baker, though he was aware of a second petition.
A preliminary hearing on July 17 was converted to a pre-preliminary hearing by Judge Douglas C. Phimister, who noted that a second case against Baker regarding his post-release supervision would have no bail.
Baker faces charges of grand theft of a horse, cruelty to animals causing suffering and/or death, attempted theft of a second horse and sexual assault on the second horse.
