As we speak, David Perry's attorney John Scanlon and ADA Sandra Cardone are in a conference with Judge Martin Smith, County Court Judge in charge of bail applications.
David Perry is NOT present. According to the Judge's secretary, the ADA Cardone and Scanlon are in a conference with the judge, presenting evidence from both sides. It is not an actual bail hearing per se; it is a discussion about whether bail should be set.
It will be up to ADA Cardone to present a compelling argument as to why Perry should remain in jail. For instance, if he was a flight risk, ruled a danger to himself or others, or was connected to another case in which he would be either a suspect or a witness.
The judge will make a bail ruling based on the attorney's presentation of evidence.
Will post any decision as soon as I hear anything.
