Facione Waives Preliminary Hearing

by The Editors on May 30, 2008

GirlthrowGirls softball coach Christopher Facione, who was arrested in March on “suspicion of having sex with a 17-year-old player” waived his right to a preliminary hearing today, according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Christopher Facione is charged with two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor more than three years younger. . . In a preliminary hearing, a judge would have had to determine if the prosecution had enough evidence to order a trial for Facione, who is free on bond.

The former UC Berkeley baseball player will go on trial August 27 in Vista.

I am following up on Mr. Facione’s case to which you ran a story earlier this year. Judge Joel Pressman dismissed the case today after declaring a mistrial when the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict. The jury was 8 for not guilty on count 1 and 11 for not guilty on count two.

Thank you,

Sean Leslie & Mary Prevost
Attorneys for Mr. Facione
