The Second Judicial District Law Firm has issued the following statement regarding the decision:
Our office has moved to detain Jerome Gutierrez based on the findings contained in the forensic report and the disturbing facts contained in his confession to the police. .. Gutierrez pushed Rivera’s head into the wall, strangled her, and admitted that she had repeatedly abused her in the days before her death. We are disappointed that the court did not believe that these facts justified Gutierrez’s pretrial detention, but we presented our case to the jury, Christie Rivera and her.
