The state pushed to keep him locked up until trial but Judge Britt Baca Miller ruled to release him under strict conditions and with a GPS monitor. While he was out, prosecutors say the 18-year-old was pursuing underage girls on Instagram.
They say he also showed up to a 15-year-old’s home and tried to force her into sex, all while on the ankle monitor. “I am extremely troubled by the allegations that the defendant has had contact with a minor. He will be remanded, the defendant will report to MDC by 8-o’clock tonight,” said Judge Clara Moran.
Prosecutors are also asking a judge to force pretrial services to hand over the location data from Charley’s GPS monitor to show he was at the girl’s home.
