Hearing later this week
The attorney for Frank Gutierrez of Idyllwild, who was arrested in July 2015, has requested a hearing to suppress certain evidence.
At the March 10 trial readiness conference, Melissa McConaghay, a deputy public defender, submitted the motion. Judge Bambi Moyer agreed to schedule a hearing on it for Friday, March 17.
In the court report, it stated, “The Court finds good cause exists to allow motion to trail.”
Gutierrez, 67, was arrested when Riverside City Police, in cooperation with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, arrested Lisa Marie Brown, of Riverside, for hit-and-run, vehicular manslaughter and possession for sale of methamphetamine. The arrests were made in Idyllwild where Gutierrez was living at the time.
Gutierrez was originally arrested for various drug-related felonies and possession of stolen firearms. His arrest appeared to be a byproduct of Brown’s arrest, who later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six years in state prison.
