Voynov’s court date December 1; no charges have been filed

I just spoke with Slava Voynov’s attorney, Craig Renetzky. He confirmed that Voynov’s next court date will take place on December 1 – not this Wednesday – because bail was posted. There is “nothing unusual” about the December 1 court date; because Voynov posted bail, the first court date does not have to be within two days.

No charges have been filed at this point. Per Renetzky, can decide to file charges before December 1.

 

UPDATE, 12:15 pm, via the OC Register (with Rich’s approval):

Lt. Joe Hoffman of the Redondo Beach Police Department gave an update this morning regarding the arrest of Kings defenseman Slava Voynov.

Here is Hoffman’s statement, with some follow-up questions.

“Last night, at around 11:25 p.m., the Redondo Beach Police Department received a call on our business line — not our 911 line — from a resident in the 800 block of Avenue C, concerning a woman screaming and heard crying. An exact address of where this incident was occurring was not provided, however officers did respond to the area and were unable to make contact with anybody. Later information was received that the woman who had been crying had possibly left in a vehicle prior to the arrival of the responding police officers.

“A short time after that, at around 1 a.m. this morning, the Redondo Beach Police Department received a call from the Torrance Police Department concerning an adult female that was at Little Company of Mary hospital with an injury that was possibly in need of law enforcement. The injury possibly being the result of a crime was what prompted a law-enforcement response, and that possibly the crime had been committed in the city of Redondo Beach.

“Redondo Beach police officers responded to the hospital and made made contact with the victim at the hospital and determined that a crime of domestic violence did, in fact, occur in the city of Redondo Beach. The suspect in this crime was also present at the hospital and was taken into custody at the hospital and transported to the Redondo Beach Police Department. The suspect was booked on a charge of 273.5 of the California Penal Code and was held on $50,000 bail. He subsequently bailed out around 9 a.m.’’
