Gilberto Reyes, the former professional baseball player, has been in the county jail for nearly 11 months, and he has yet to be tried on charges of distribution of drugs.
It looks like he’ll be waiting a few months longer.
On Wednesday, District Judge Gerald Baca rejected a petition from Reyes challenging his detention. Baca said such a request is normally reserved for after convictions.
“Good luck,” the judge told Reyes at the end of the hearing.
Reyes smiled and thanked Baca.
