The money thing isn’t much of an argument, but having a second passport and having two passports by reporting one missing will be a huge issue when it comes to flight risk.
fwiw, He was wearing a electronic monitoring device.
Except that the judge realized that argument was bogus because his attorney O’Mara was in possession of that second passport.
The judge’s order for GZ to return was based on the monetary issue, he dismissed the passport issue after O’Mara explained the truth.
GZ is getting the shaft.
His attorney has already taken responsibility for the passport mistake. He stated that GZ gave him his passports and that the attorney made the mistake. Seems like a foolish mistake for a professional attorney to make but either way it has nothing to do with GZ.
