This was ordered by the judges Dardo Enrique Bordón, Leticia María Lorenzo and Gustavo Ravizzoli who declared this Friday the defendant in absentia for missing a hearing without any justification.
Judges Dardo Enrique Bordón, Leticia María Lorenzo and Gustavo Ravizzoli declared Walter Daniel Cerda in absentia and ordered his immediate capture because he did not appear at the hearing that took place this Friday before noon.
Cerda is charged as the alleged perpetrator of an attempted sexual abuse against a woman from Villa La Angostura. The attack occurred on May 1, around 7, according to the theory of the prosecution, with the adhesion of the complaint.
The defendant was at liberty because Judge Maximiliano Bagnat had dismissed the request for preventive detention for the defendant, as requested by the complaint.
The prosecution had not requested that precautionary measure for Cerda. She had only requested that measures be imposed to guarantee that she did not have any type of contact or approach with the complainant woman. For this reason, Bagnat imposed a ban on approaching less than 200 meters from the victim. Also, he prohibited her from entering and wandering around the Las Piedritas neighborhood, with the exception of being able to walk on the bridge that crosses the stream. And the obligation to appear 3 times a week at the local police station.
The lawyer for the lawsuit Hugo Pettorosso asked to review that decision and, therefore, a hearing had been called for this Friday at 11.
However, the accused did not attend the hearing even though he had been notified, according to the complaint, and the judges declared him a rebel and ordered his arrest. Pettorosso maintained that the accused did not justify the absence.
According to the complaint, they requested the immediate capture of the accused after the court declared him in absentia.
The official defender Sol Valero attended the hearing, but alone because her client did not appear.
On Monday, Bagnat admitted the charges made by the prosecution and the complaint against Cerda for attempted sexual abuse against a woman from this town.
The magistrate authorized the investigation of the denounced fact and gave the prosecution, the complaint and the defense a period of 4 months to develop their theories of the case.
Pettorosso had warned at that hearing that Cerda was a person who could escape when he based his request for preventive detention that was rejected by Bagnat.
