Clifford Safranski, the defendant’s attorney, noted that he had originally filed a motion to compel discovery from the District Attorney’s Office, but he received the discovery before the motion was granted. He stated that he had also received other information he had requested separately.
A new pre-preliminary hearing was scheduled for Feb. 6 at 1 p.m. in Department 7.
Juarez was arrested in connection with the death of Gene Mcarn, 19, of Rescue, who died of stab wounds on Nov. 21 after an alleged encounter with Juarez at Red Hawk Casino in Shingle Springs. He is being held on two counts of violation of probation and one count of murder with a $1 million bail hold.
