Bail and number of counts reduced against Kettrell Berry

M45 sprinter Kettrell Berry faces 11 years in prison if convicted of the charges against him, but the case has been reduced by the District Attorney’s Office. Originally, his bail was $1.1 million. Now it’s $150,000, which means he might get out if he raises about 10 percent of that. He pleaded not guilty today to 14 felony counts involving one girl. The original charges numbered 25. One story said “about a dozen people stood up in the courtroom during the arraignment to show their support for the defendant. They declined to speak to reporters afterward.” The U-T San Diego report also noted: “The defense attorney submitted a stack of awards, certificates and letters to the court, many of which described Berry as a devoted father and a dedicated and disciplined mentor.”
