Update on Paulina Ibarra case

Good morning all,

Just passing along the update I received.  The case against Jesus Catalan is still in pre-trial motions, as is common in murder cases.  Lt. Buhrmester will let us know when the actual preliminary hearing occurs, where Catalan will be in court and the DA will present a case to determine if evidence exists to hold him for a felony trial.

I will continue passing along the updates as they are received.

ADDED BY LT: you can watch the press conference referenced above here

    Hello all,

    I just received a phone call regarding Paulina Ibarra’s case. Apparently, the preliminary hearing for Jesus Catalan took place this morning. Catalan took a deal, 12 years for manslaughter. The District Attorney stated that given the evidence they had collected, it was a difficult case and if it had gone to trial, there was a strong chance Catalan would have been acquitted.

    The sentencing will take place on May 20th, and if I get any more information, I will pass it along.

    Like many of us, Paulina’s family has mixed feelings about the outcome. Please keep them in your thoughts.

    Best,
    Jake
